For certain patients suffering from growth hormone deficiency, sermorelin therapy could be an alternative to human growth hormone (HGH) therapy.
Sermorelin is a prescription medication used to treat qualified patients for growth hormone deficiency. However, like any drug or medication, it has benefits as well as side effects. This page will discuss the benefits and the side effects of sermorelin therapy.
Sermorelin is a synthetic version of a family of naturally occurring biological compounds that are known as growth hormone-releasing hormones or GHRH. In adults that may be suffering from a growth hormone deficiency (GHD), sermorelin can be prescribed to stimulate your pituitary gland to release more growth hormone.
Depending on your symptoms and degree of GHD, sermorelin therapy could be an effective alternative to growth hormone replacement therapy.
