Are you suffering from excess weight, loss of energy, or muscle weakness? Very likely you’ve got the growth hormone (HGH) deficiency which is very easy to be restored with the help of Sermorelin therapy. Let’s see what this treatment is and how exactly it helps to fight the issues with HGH in the body.
Sermorelin is a growth hormone secretagogue that acts like an HGH-releasing hormone (GHRH) and stimulates the pituitary gland to naturally produce the required amount of growth hormone for normal functioning of the body.
Growth hormone is responsible for:
and much more.
Sermorelin is prescribed by a doctor if he/she reveals a diagnosis that sounds like adult-onset growth hormone deficiency. To learn if the diagnosis really exists, comprehensive diagnostics and lab testing are provided. As the levels of growth hormone fluctuate during the day, the deficiency is often identified by evaluating IGF-1 (Insulin-like growth factor) which is secreted by the liver and often correlates with the levels of GH.
Sermorelin works by binding to the GHRH receptor in the anterior pituitary gland and enables the additional production of HGH which, in its turn, stimulates the secretion of endogenous IGF-1 which enhances the tissue and bone growth in kids and improves the structure of muscles, bones, and tissues in adults.
Such a miraculous substance as Sermorelin is both a natural way to produce growth hormone and acts by a negative feedback system. This means that it controls the amount of HGH in the body and prevents the release of its excess amount precluding unhealthy levels of GH to occur.
Sermorelin improves the quality of sleep, enhances the restorative sleep duration and amplifies the sleep-related production of human growth hormone as well as reduces the release of cortisol at the same time.
Growth hormone deficiency occurs in case if the pituitary gland refuses to secrete the required amount of hormone enough for the proper functioning of the human body. The pituitary gland is a small-sized ‘pea-like’ gland located at the base of the skull; it releases 8 hormones including the ones that regulate the thyroid activity, body temperature, and more.
Causes for HGH deficiency may include Prader-Willi syndrome (a genetic disease), severe head injures, infections, tumors nearby the hypothalamus area of the brain, or radiation treatments against cancer.
Sometimes the deficiency has an idiopathic nature which means that it can occur without any officially diagnosed cause at all.
HGH deficiency requires laboratory diagnostics only in case if a patient admits its symptoms and reports them to the GP which sends a patient to the endocrinologist to confirm the diagnosis or falsify it. Some symptoms of HGH deficiency in adults may include:
and some more.
If the diagnosis has been confirmed by the analysis and diagnostics provided at the endocrinologist’s office, then the treatment is prescribed and should be started as soon as possible.
The treatment is provided using Sermorelin acetate which is the ethanoate of an amidated peptide with 29 amino acids in its formula referred to as the aminoterminal part of the GHRH (growth hormone-releasing hormone) which naturally occurs in the body and consists of 44 amino acid remnants.
Sermorelin is offered in vials of 0.5 and 0.3 mg. It is also approved to be used for diagnostic evaluation of the pituitary gland function as well as boosting growth in kids with inborn HGH deficiency.
The therapy usually supposes the dosage of 0.2-0.3 mcg injected subcutaneously once a day before bedtime. Such type of administration is recommended because the growth hormone is mostly released by the pituitary gland at night. Sermorelin is administered with the help of sterile disposable syringes and needles.
Sermorelin is referred to as a GHRP peptide and it is often provided in combination with other growth-hormone secretagogues like GHRP-2 and GHRP-6.
GHRP-2 is a great ghrelin agonist which assists in releasing the growth hormone in a reiterated process. This peptide suppresses the work of somatostatin – a hormone that limits the production of natural growth hormone in required amounts, so it is a great tool to overcome the deficiency. GHRP-6 is almost the same and GHRP-2, however, the main difference between them is that GHRP-6 can induce hunger.
Sermorelin can be administered either alone (using pure Sermorelin acetate), in blends with GHRP-2, mixed with GHRP-6, or both with GHRP-2 and GHRP-6 together.
Once you start the therapy you are going to admit obvious improvements already during the first month of the treatment. The next weeks and months of the therapy cycle are going to bring even better results and enhancements both to your physical and psychological state.
Some of the most expected benefits that most patients appreciate are as follows:
and many more.
To avoid any possible side effects, it is recommended not to overdose on Sermorelin and keep to the doctor’s advice concerning the time and method of providing the injections as well as stick to sterility at the injection site.
