STAYING ON COURSE
Flying a space ship is great, but it comes with responsibilities. If you take short cuts your mission could fail, so it is important to do things exactly as instructed. The same is true for growth hormone therapy.

DONT MISS INJECTIONS

If you are receiving growth hormone therapy, your mission is clear: inject every dose exactly as instructed, for as long as your doctor tells you to.

DO YOU EVER MISS GROWTH HORMONE INJECTIONS?

FAB! Go to the top of the Space Academy class

The more injections you have as instructed by your doctor, the faster and bigger you will grow.
Keep up the great work.

You're not alone

Nearly a quarter of children on grow hormone therapy miss injections every week. That's a problem, because not missing injections is REALLY IMPORTANT for helping you to reach your full adult height.

Remembering to do anything regularly can be difficult, but it is worth the effort. Tell your doctor or nurse if you have having problems sticking to your injection schedule. You can be sure they will be happy to help. The sooner issues are raised, the sooner they can be sorted.
