The hormone is injected subcutaneously into the patient, so the injections are largely painless and convenient. Once prescribed, the treatment can be self-administered. The growth and development of a child are controlled by a hormone secreted by the pituitary gland. Sometimes, the gland produces too much or too little growth hormone, which results in an imbalanced growth cycle. In order to facilitate normal growth, hormones can be injected that will help the child grow normally.
