What Is Growth Hormone Deficiency?

Your pituitary gland makes growth hormones needed for your body to grow and develop. When there is an absence of these hormones, you are suffering from a growth hormone deficiency (GHD).

In children, GHD slows the growth rate and results in short stature. In adults, a variety of symptoms may indicate a GHD. Those include:

If you are suffering from these symptoms, it’s important to have a medical professional perform tests to see if you have GHD.

Causes of GHD in Adults

Adults who suffer from GHD can acquire the deficiency in several ways:

Treatment for Growth Hormone Deficiency

The preferred treatment for growth hormone deficiency is Sermorelin HGH treatment.

Sermorelin is a bioidentical growth hormone-releasing hormone (GHRH) that stimulates the pituitary gland. This stimulation results in increased production of Human Growth Hormones.

Sermorelin HGH Treatment is administered via injection. At the onset of treatment, patients receive injections six days per week. Once benefits are achieved—usually between 3-6 months—dosing frequency decreases.

Patients often report relief from some GHD symptoms in the first few weeks of treatment. Increased energy levels, improved sleep quality, and relief from mood swings are some of the positive changes experienced. Other improvements may take longer to occur.  

Are There Side Effects or Risks?

It’s important to make an informed decision when considering any type of medical procedure. Side effects from Sermorelin HGH Treatment may include:

Because Sermorelin works to stimulate the brain to produce HGH naturally, there are few, if any associated risks.

Find Out if Sermorelin HGH Treatment Is Right for You

If you have low energy, feel moody, depressed, and are having trouble sleeping, you could be suffering from adult onset GHD. If that’s the case, Sermorelin HGH Treatment could dramatically change the quality of your life.
