We have been contacted by the Novo Nordisk team who wanted us to share that there is and will continue to be supply issues over the coming months with their Growth Hormone, Norditropin®.
The advice is to check your current supply of Norditropin® and update your homecare or hospital provider of current stock levels. If you have sufficient supply, no action is needed. Your hospital team are working on patient specific solutions for patients with low or no supply of Growth Hormone. Please only contact your Health Care Professional for further advice if needed or are running low on your Growth Hormone supply. You can call your Paediatric Endocrinologists Secretary, Endocrine Nurse Specialist or Home Care team who are aware of the issues and can advise on patient specific solutions.
Please rest assured that Novo Nordisk is doing everything they can to improve the situation and will keep us updated.
