Helping you stick with your treatment
Hints and tips on administering Saizen®:
- Remember it's best to deliver the growth hormone at the same time every day.
- Just before bed is usually the best time for treatment (because the body normally releases growth hormone during the night.)
- Try and rotate injection administration sites, so you avoid injecting into the same place each day- as this may cause a reaction.
- Have you tried injecting into your thighs, arms, stomach, or buttocks?
The importance of sticking with the treatment:
- It's really important to make sure treatment is taken regularly to maximise treatment effectiveness.
- It's a good idea to measure your BMI regularly - you can find out how to do this and keep an electronic log of BMI on your personal space mywayup section of the website.
