Sermorelin Not Working

Sermorelin is not the same thing as HGH, and it does not work as quickly to reverse the symptoms of growth hormone deficiency in adults. The doctor – preferably a hormone replacement therapy specialist – may prescribe Sermorelin if you are in the early stages of GH deficiency. At this time, Sermorelin is beneficial as a growth hormone releasing hormone for stimulating the pituitary gland to increase its production of growth hormone. If Sermorelin is not working to bring relief from the early stage symptoms of GH decline, there are some things that you and the doctor can do to improve your results.

The first thing that the doctor might do is increase your dosage of Sermorelin. If you have not noticed any adverse side effects (which are rare) from this treatment, raising how much you administer might be the best option. Do not do this on your own – the doctor must make this determination for you.

There are other steps to take when Sermorelin is not working. What to do next might include another blood test to measure your insulin growth factor 1 levels again to see if there has been any improvement in growth hormone secretion. If not, it may be time to switch to HGH injections to rapidly increase the amount of GH in your bloodstream.

How to Get Better Results from Sermorelin

When you want to get better results from Sermorelin, you can make some basic changes in your lifestyle to improve your treatment outcome. These steps are important because you could be unwittingly sabotaging your own efforts.

If Sermorelin is not working, try making these changes to improve your results:

  • Get more exercise – we know that the pituitary gland secretes growth hormone in pulsatile bursts that follow high-intensity exercise. Try to engage in at least one 10-minute session a day of exercise consisting of two minutes of movement followed by a 20-second high-intensity burst such as running up and down stairs, jogging, or another such movement that will leave you winded. Repeat this 3 times.
  • Eat better – cut out sugar, white grains, and unhealthy fats and increase your intake of lean protein, vegetables, fruits, nuts, and heart-healthy olive and coconut oils.
  • Get between 7 and 9 hours of sleep each night to stimulate proper growth hormone secretion.
  • Reduce your stress levels since stress increases cortisol production – a hormone that reduces GH secretion.
