Hormone Replacement Therapy

Researchers say low testosterone is often overlooked in men because they frequently ignore their symptoms or attribute them to other causes, such as aging or diseases associated with aging. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) estimates that 4 to 5 million American men may suffer from low testosterone, but only 5% are currently treated.

An article in the Cleveland Clinic’s “Men’s Health Advisor” links low testosterone levels to decreased libido, sexual dysfunction, fatigue, loss of muscle mass, depression, impaired concentration, and loss of bone mass. In addition, a study published in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism found that relatively healthy men with the lowest testosterone levels had a 40% greater risk of dying over the next 18 years than those with higher testosterone levels. Therefore, any suspicion of testosterone deficiency should not be ignored.

Palm Beach Pharmaceuticals offers a wide range of solutions for delivering testosterone replcement; from creams to injectables, in a variety of strengths.
As we age, growth hormone releasing factor declines causing reduced production and secretion of pituitary hGH often leading to a growth hormone insufficiency that erodes health, and diminishes vigor and vitality. Restoring optimal levels of growth hormone may improve or sustain youthful anatomy, physiology, and thereby, the health and vitality often lost with age-related growth hormone deficiency. 

Traditionally, adult growth hormone deficiency (AGHD) has been treated by substituting natural hGH with recombinant human growth hormone (rhGH). Although rhGH injections are still the standard for treating AGHD, a breakthrough product, Sermorelin, offers a more natural, affordable alternative that is as effective as rhGH therapy. 

Developed in 1998 by Serono Laboratories, Inc., the makers of Saizen hGH, FDA approved Sermorelin has recently become available for the treatment of AGHD. Sermorelin is comprised of 29 amino acids found in the hormone (GRF 1-44) that your brain produces naturally to simulate the release of hGH. As a growth hormone releasing agent, Sermorelin triggers the pituitary gland to produce natural hGH. In this natural process, the body regulates the level and frequency of hGH release, so there are no side effects associated with the constant application of injected rhGH. Sermorelin requires no off-cycles. In fact, the longer it’s used, the better the pituitary gland functions.
