Thyroid Dysfunction.

Thyroid dysfunction is a common medical condition that affects millions of people worldwide. The thyroid gland, located in the neck, plays a critical role in regulating the body's metabolism and controlling many of its functions. When the thyroid gland is not functioning correctly, it can lead to a wide range of symptoms and health problems. These can include fatigue, weight changes, hair loss, mood changes, and many others.

Many people notice that losing weight is a lifetime struggle. You may have noticed that you can starve yourself, workout until you pass out, and attempt every fad diet that comes your way without actually losing any weight. One potential reason for this is growth hormone insufficiency. Without adequate growth hormone, your basal metabolic rate, the calories you burn at rest, is decreased. Thus, it takes aggressive amounts of calorie reduction in order to see progress, and this is impossible to sustain … and unhealthy!

Some people spend hours at the gym lifting weights without noticing any additional muscle definition. Sermorelin can boost your growth hormone production in order to enhance your muscle growth and workout recovery. This will allow you to hit your goals quicker and keep raising the bar … literally!

You may have growth hormone deficiency if you have any of the following:

  • Over the age of 40
  • High blood sugar (Diabetes)
  • Overweight (especially belly fat)
  • Insomnia or Poor Sleep
  • Lack of intense exercise
  • Smokers
  • Other hormone disturbances (Menopause, Testosterone, Thyroid, Adrenal dysfunction)

Growth hormone levels have been tracked for years. It is well known that with each advancing year, your growth hormone levels decline. Have you ever heard that elderly people do not sleep well? They also happen to have the lowest growth hormone levels across all ages. Growth hormone regulates the deep sleep patterns needed for adequate rest. If you have poor sleep cycles, wake up frequently, or do not feel rested when you wake up, you may already be suffering from growth hormone deficiency. This is a Catch 22: Deep sleep is required to stimulate growth hormone production, but growth hormone generates deep sleep.

Sermorelin (an injected hormone) helps stimulate your own growth hormone production while you sleep. It has minimal side effects.   Sermorelin also causes lasting effects for weeks to months after cessation of treatment. It causes your own pituitary to create more growth hormone by up-regulating your DNA. This process creates higher levels of growth hormone for long periods of time.

If you are concerned about your growth hormone levels, we can perform a simple blood test, which will evaluate your growth hormone levels.
