Why Do I Need Sermorelin Therapy?
If you have decided that you want to undergo some form of hormone-replacement therapy because of low GH, you might ask why you should choose sermorelin rather than hGH itself, which could seem to be an extra step.
First and foremost, to qualify for a GH-stimulating treatment program at AAI Clinics then you must have reduced circulating GH levels. This is usually caused by natural aging or deficient endogenous GH production. This may be the result of an injury, a tumor, the therapies used to treat a tumor, a genetic predisposition, or a condition that began at birth.
Anyone that has participated in an hGH protocol for 6 months or more should consider switching to sermorelin, if only to stimulate pituitary activity. Remember that when you artificially manipulate your GH and hence IGF-1 levels using hGH therapy, the pituitary does not need to work as hard because GH and IGF-1 levels in the blood remain elevated. Extended periods of pituitary inactivity could eventually lead to atrophy of the pituitary gland. Sermorelin therapy would be a good way of allowing the pituitary gland to recover and restore normal functionality while still retaining elevated GH and IGF-1 levels.
Younger patients that have completed the required blood tests and find that their IGF-1 (representative of their GH levels) levels are lower than normal for a person of their age and file details may be interested in starting with a sermorelin protocol in an effort to stimulate their pituitary gland and activate natural GH production. We do not recommend that patients aged under 40 years participate in hGH therapy without first trying sermorelin because of consideration for the overall, long-term health of the pituitary gland and the patient as a whole. The aim should be to help your own body produce healthy levels of GH for as long as possible. A patient should only move to a more intense program, such as direct hGH administration, once sermorelin treatment is deemed to have failed.
In addition to the decreased risks associated with sermorelin therapy, a physician-supervised and orchestrated sermorelin protocol can be significantly more cost-effective than an hGH program while still producing comparable results for patients with a well-functioning pituitary gland.
Contact us at AAI Rejuvenation Clinic and allow us to process an IGF-1 test for you to determine if you are suffering from a low GH production, which could ultimately manifest as age-related illnesses and physical manifestations. If you are not quite feeling right lately, you owe it to yourself to at least test your hormone levels. AAI Clinics puts you under no further obligation and you will experience absolutely NO pressure from anyone in our organization. It’s our motto.
If you process your blood work through us we can send you to a nearby LabCorp location (we only need your zip code), and you will have your results within 24 business hours. You will get a copy of your records, again, with no further obligation.
