The human body is a complex machine. To perform optimally, metabolic-hormonal processes need to function at their peak. Even the slightest miscalibration can throw the body off kilter, impacting everything from sleep cycles to energy levels, body fat distribution, and muscle growth. Human growth hormone (HGH) is one such hormone that can greatly impact how you look and feel. In adults, HGH aids in muscle growth, metabolism, and blood sugar levels. If your growth hormone levels are low, you may find yourself gaining weight or spending hours lifting weights at the gym to no avail.
In the past, people with low HGH had few viable treatment options. That all changed in 1990 when sermorelin received its first patent. At TruWellnessMD in Palm Beach County, we have seen the life-altering effects of this novel therapeutic approach firsthand. Our peptide therapy programs, including sermorelin in Jupiter, allow our clients to take charge of their internal wellness so they look and feel their absolute best.
Contrary to popular belief, human growth hormone (HGH) is not only vital to bone growth during childhood and adolescence. In adulthood, HGH maintains body composition, affecting the ability to build muscle and resist gaining weight. While HGH levels drop after puberty, your body still needs it to function optimally. Some adults don’t produce enough growth hormone, leading to lower exercise capacity, decreased muscle mass, excessive visceral fat, abnormal lipid profiles, weak bones, and an elevated risk of cardiovascular disease. Sermorelin acetate is a synthetic growth hormone releasing hormone (GHRH) medication that aids in fat metabolism and muscle growth in adults with HGH insufficiency. This revolutionary injectable drug is a bio-compatible version of the human growth hormone naturally produced by the body. Sermorelin stimulates the pituitary gland to increase growth hormone production naturally and preserves more growth hormone in the neuroendocrine axis.
Sermorelin injections are popular among aspiring fitness enthusiasts, those wanting to improve sleep quality, and people looking to speed athletic recovery. It can also give clients participating in medically supervised weight-loss programs a leading edge since it bolsters metabolism and normalizes blood sugar levels. While only available to patients with a growth hormone deficiency, its effects can be transformative. Key benefits include a more restful night of sleep, increased muscle mass, decreased body fat, and more resilience during workouts.
Your TruWellnessMD provider may prescribe sermorelin if your blood test reveals low growth hormone levels. People with untreated hypothyroidism are not ideal candidates. Sermorelin also may not be appropriate for pregnant women. It’s unknown whether it can pass into breastmilk. Sermorelin drug interactions are possible, so let your physician know if you take aspirin, insulin, atropine, somatostatin-containing drugs, or thyroid medications.
Your consultation at TruWellnessMD will include a deep-dive discussion of your symptoms, goals, and medical history. Your clinician will then review your bloodwork and may prescribe sermorelin injections if you have insufficient HGH. Assuming you are a candidate, they will let you know what the process entails, answer all your questions, and provide a detailed price quote. Most patients taking sermorelin do best when pairing it with testosterone replacement therapy (TRT).
Sermorelin injections are quickly and easily administered nightly before bed. Using a sterile drawing syringe, draw the appropriate amount of sterile water from the vial. Remove the drawing syringe and set the water vial aside. Next, push down on the plunger slowly to inject the contents of the drawing syringe into the vial containing the sermorelin powder. Give it a shake, then uncap the tiny sterile needle and draw the appropriate dose. Finally, inject the sermorelin mixture subcutaneously (just under the skin) at a 90-degree angle into the abdomen or thigh. Recap the needles and dispose of them in a sharps container.
Injection-site redness and pinpoint bleeding are common, although there is no downtime. Most patients do not experience adverse effects. Dizziness, flushing, headache, rash, and nausea have been reported. Most people taking sermorelin observe clinical improvements within one to three months. Treatment durations typically range from three months to a year.
