Xinhua News Agency, Changsha, August 4th, Suggestion: Height is anxious to play "increased needle"? Danger! Xinhua News Agency, "Xinhua Side" reporter handsome, Huang Yu, Dong Xiaohong "child is lower than the same age people, can I increase the high needle?" "My son wants to grow to one meter, the doctor will increase the needle!" …… During the summer vacation, some parents went to the hospital for consultation and wanted to give the child "increased needle". In recent years, the "increased needle" treatment of shortcomps is mainly used in medicine.
The "Xinhua Viewpoint" reporter survey found that the so-called "increased needle" is actually injecting growth hormone.
Experts believe that the growth hormone has a slider that is abused, which may bring the user’s endocrine disorder, femoral head slip, spinal bending and other health risks.
"Parents are too anxious to the child’s height", there is a growth hormone enterprise in 5 years, "people don’t have more demand," the parents are too anxious to the child. "Lin Ming in the Endocrinology of Wuhan Union Hospital. The doctor told reporters that he received 50 people every day from Monday to Friday and 70 to 80 people on Sunday, only on Saturday. Now I am a summer vacation, and the daily access is more than.
Lin Ming said that in someone who came to seek medical treatment, half of the parents came to ask the child’s height, and whether to use growth hormone to help grow.
"Some parents feel that the child is not high, I want to increase the high needle and use to increase the product.
"Xu Wei, the children’s internal secretion department of Hunan Provincial People’s Hospital, the full name of children’s growth hormone is genetically recombinant human growth hormone, which can only be used to treat growth hormone deficiency, idiopathic short body, etc., can not expand treatment category.
The reporter found that some private hospitals play a slogan such as "70% of the height by genetic, 30% relying on the day, custom hard". In recent years, with the increase of social needs, the use of growth hormones is getting bigger and bigger. An annual income of domestic growth hormone leading enterprises has grown year. In 2016 to 2020, its annual income increased more than 4 times, more than 90% of income from growth hormone-related products. Lin Ming said, in fact, it is only a very small part of the treatment of hormone treatment. Most children only need conventional diet, exercise, sleep guidance, and do not need to use growth hormone. Zhang Yining, Director of the Pediatric Department of Pediatric Endocrinology, the First Hospital of Jilin University, said: "Drugs are used to treat diseases.
It doesn’t say that I feel short, I want to grow more, I have some hormone, which is very ridiculous. Zhang Yining said: "The phenomenon currently excessive inspections and irregular checks is very common.
Have a parent to the outpatient clinic, be sure to give the child to grow hormone and chemical, I don’t have to do it. This test is to use drugs to test, 5 times to draw blood, there are many external factors that affect the stimulation level of hormones at the time, need to be synthesized.
Some hospitals have checked with irregular techniques. After the results are obtained, they will start to use increased needles to children, and it is very irresponsible. "" Spending $ 480,000 for children grows up to 1 cm ", playing" increasing needle "to save health risks Ms. Wang worried that his son was short, and the land is continued in various "height promotion outpatients". It took 480,000 yuan a year, and the son only heated 1 cm.
"Children’s growth hormone exceptions have become hidden rules, clinical diagnosis is irregular, freely expand growth hormone applications, excessive treatment, etc., bring serious health hazards." A pediatrician said worried. Parents unnecessary height anxiety is easily exploited and enlarged by informal medical institutions.
Industry insiders said that some pharmaceutical representatives use parents to increase their hormones into "increased their godbs", in fact, children with normal growth hormone secretions cannot be injected with growth hormones, otherwise it will cause endocrine system disorders. Some doctors introduced that some children have symptoms such as fatigue, fatigue, weakness, and other symptoms such as fatigue, fatigue, weakness, etc. after injection growth hormone. Some children will have high blood sugar after injection growth hormone, which requires regular monitoring to avoid diabetes.
There is also a child injection growth hormone, which causes the femoral head slip, the spinal side bending.
The reporter inquiry related literature found that there is currently the adverse reaction related to growth hormone treatment has a benign intracranial hyperbaric, sugar metabolism, hypothyroidism, pigment, hand feet, local redness and rash, otitis media, etc. According to experts from industry experts, the treatment of growth hormone treatment is given by different formulations, the weight and sensitivity are different, and the monthly fee is between 3,000 to 15,000 yuan, and it is often necessary to inject 2 to 5 years.
Since the promotion of "increased needle" can get profits, some medical representatives use high rebates to attract children’s abuse. Some growth hormone pharmaceuticals invite pediatricians to participate in training, and the so-called training is to make doctors to give their children to grow hormones and commission according to certain proportion of sales.
Standard growth hormone use is forced Yang Wenqing, an East Hospital of Sichuan Provincial People’s Hospital, said that some shortcomps have some basic diseases, and after the basic disease is cured, there may be chasing growth. If it is only biased and there is no lack of growth hormone, it does not require injection growth hormone at all.
Zhang Yining and other suggestions to standardize the use of growth hormones. The Ministry of Health shall strengthen the training and supervision of doctors. Doctors must strictly abide by the diagnosis and treatment of relevant children, beware of clinical growth hormone abuse, and use. For those who drive the child’s injection growth hormone, health, drug supervisors, and public security departments should form a cooperation, severe investigation. Industry experts pointed out that adolescent children treated with growth hormone should regularly monitor the effectiveness and safety of the treatment in pediatric endophagelicular clinics. The doctor will monitor the child’s growth and development indicators, adverse reactions, etc.
"There are very few hospitals in the United States of the Children’s Endocrinology, and our department is also new, and there is not enough staff.
In the grassroots, professional children’s endocrine doctors are more lacking, it is difficult to perform regular monitoring of these children, and it is difficult to ensure the safety of children. Director of the Children’s Endocrinology of a Hospital.
According to industry experts, for children with short children, children must be examined in children’s bone age, growth hormone secretion, and also need to exclude various diseases, and can decide whether to use growth hormone therapy.
Children with children, growth hormones are currently considered the most effective treatment. In the best treatment, the drug is intervened by drugs, and the child grows to a certain extent, but must choose a formal medical institution. Cheng Yixi, the Children’s Genetic and Endocrinology, the Children’s Genetic and Endocrination Metallographic Science and Endocrinations, the parents need to establish the correct health concept, understand that the growth hormone does not want to play, the crowd really need, must pass the relevant examination by professional doctors Before you can use it.
