How much do you know about hormone replacement therapy (HRT) and human growth hormone (HGH) deficiencies? Even though HGH deficiency affects as many as 3 in every 10,000 people, there isn’t nearly enough information circulating for adult males suffering from this disease.
In the past, the only solution for many adults was HGH therapy. However, HGH therapy is often accompanied by many unwanted side effects like high cholesterol, diabetes, carpal tunnel syndrome, and chronic pain in the nerves, muscles, or joints.
It wasn’t until 1997 that the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved sermorelin acetate, a safer and more effective solution for treating the unwelcome side effects of hypopituitarism like fatigue, muscle weakness, weight gain, and social isolation. At Renew Vitality, we specialize in treating adult men with hormonal imbalances like HGH with sermorelin treatments.
What is Human Growth Hormone?
HGH is produced by the pituitary gland. It peaks in children and teens to help in healthy growth and development. In adults, it’s responsible for several vital physiological functions like regulating body fat composition, healthy muscle and bone growth, and metabolization of fats and sugar.
HGH stimulates metabolic processes at the cellular level. In the liver, it’s responsible for activating a protein that is essential for producing cartilage cells. The body needs these cells to support skeletal bone and organ growth.
HGH helps to rebuild and support healthy tissue growth in the brain and all over the body. Moderate to high-intensity resistance training creates microscopic tears within muscle tissue. HGH helps muscles heal after a strenuous workout by building stronger muscle fibers. If men are recovering from an injury, the body also releases HGH to repair injuries rapidly.
Many of the common signs of aging can be rooted in declining HGH levels. Muscle loss, weakness, fatigue, baldness, wrinkles, and sexual dysfunctions are a few of the common signs the pituitary gland has stopped producing the appropriate level of HGH.
HGH therapy essentially supplies the body with synthetic hormone by injecting the medication into the muscles or under the skin for absorption. HGH therapy was designed to address unpleasant side effects associated with HGH deficiencies, and it has received a lot of criticism from medical professionals and patients over the years.
It’s easy for adults to receive too much synthetic HGH during treatment, creating a host of medical complications, like fluid retention (edema), increased risk of heart disease, growth of cancerous tumors, and liver damage. The FDA has limited the use of HGH therapy for adults to serious medical issues.
What is Sermorelin?
Sermorelin acetate is a synthetic peptide that was discovered in 1970 to treat the symptoms of hypopituitarism and hypogonadism. Sermorelin is a bioidentical hormone, which means It’s structure and function closely mirrors naturally occurring hormones like HGH. It can stimulate the pituitary gland to produce and secrete more HGH.
The brain normally produces sermorelin; however, if there is not enough sermorelin in the body, adult males can endure numerous compounding health complications.
Sermorelin and HGH regulate the production of fat cells. Once there is a hormonal deficiency, men tend to pack on more fat and lose muscle mass. Men are also at a higher risk of developing osteoporosis or cardiovascular disease.
A hormonal expert can conduct a blood panel to identify hormonal deficiencies. At Renew Vitality, a physician assesses the blood panel results and symptoms and prescribes the optimal amount of medication through using a multi-dose injectable vial. Inside each vial is a powder disk of sermorelin acetate along with bacteriostatic water.
Sermorelin therapy is incredibly convenient. Clients can administer each dosage themselves from the comfort of their own homes using a small needle. Every client is different. Typically, sermorelin regimens begin with a “loading period” in which the client has more frequent doses and gradually tapers.
