Adult growth hormone deficiency is a medical condition that occurs when our body stops producing sufficient levels of growth hormone. In a young healthy body, the anterior pituitary gland is responsible for the production of growth hormone, which in turn stimulates the liver to produce another hormone called insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-1). These two hormones combined have widespread metabolic effects throughout the body, rebuilding our tissues as they break down throughout the course of a day.

At Balance Medical, we look for the most common clinical symptoms of adults with GH deficiency.  Not all of these symptoms need be present on a patient with low growth hormone.  These symptoms relate to muscle/fat composition, physical performance and psychological well-being. When HGH levels are low, body composition can be significantly altered with an increase in fat, predominantly abdominal fat, and a decrease in lean muscle mass.  This then translates to reduced muscle strength, metabolic rate, and exercise capacity. Patients can also have difficulty keeping weight off. General well being of GH deficient adults may be affected, consequently reducing vitality and energy, resulting in depression and apathy.

Aging & hGH Deficiency


By the time we reach the age of 30, our growth hormone levels are only about 20 percent of their peak levels during childhood. After we turn 30 they continue to decline at about 12 to 15 percent per decade, often much more.   So by the time our bodies need hGH for repair, our growth hormone levels are at their lowest.

Do you have these symptoms:

  • A higher level of body fat, especially around the waist

  • Less muscle (lean body mass)

  • Anxiety and depression

  • Less strength, stamina and ability to exercise without taking a rest

  • Decreased sexual function and interest

  • Feelings of being isolated from other people

  • Reduced bone density and a tendency to have more bone fractures as they get older

  • Fatigue

  • Greater sensitivity to heat and cold

Benefits of HGH and/or Sermorelin Therapy

Clients can expect to see:

  • Improved Body Composition

  • Increased Bone Density – Increases Calcium Retention

  • Improved Skin Thickness and Texture

  • Improved Sleep Quality

  • Increasing Energy from Fat Breakdown

  • Increases Protein Synthesis – Increases Lean Muscle through the Development of New Muscle Cells

  • Stimulates the Growth of all Internal Organs to more a Youthful State

  • Decreases Body Fat and Increases Lipolysis (Fat Burning)

  • Improved Libido and Sexual Performance


Scientifically, sermorelin is termed "GRF 1-29" which stands for Growth Hormone Releasing Factor (GRF) with the numbers(1-29) indicating the amino acid chain responsible for the effects caused by Sermorelin. This injectable medication is a bio-identical hormone that acts as a Growth Hormone Releasing Hormone (GHRH). It is designed/engineered to stimulate the secretion of Growth Hormone(hGH) from the Pituitary gland.

As we get older, the hormones produced by the anterior pituitary are depleted. It has now been shown that GHRH can restore the GH producing cells to a youthful level causing elevation of levels of IGF-1. Call us, we can help you determine which Sermorelin therapy is right for you.
