Sermorelin is a biological active analogue of growth hormone releasing hormone (GHRH) that's generated by the human brain to stimulate creation and release of growth hormone by the pituitary gland. Prostate cancer and benign prostate enlargement are thought to be stimulated by testosterone. The possibility of increased risk of these illnesses with testosterone supplementation is of great anxiety, because treatments for both illnesses comprise androgen suppression. Testosterone treatment has been linked with increased prostate volume, although not necessarily above high -standard levels.
Women with diminished sex drive have been shown to have lower free testosterone levels. In a 12-week trial 51 of 34 girls, testosterone treatment (1% lotion, 10 mg per day applied to the thigh) improved well-being, mood, and sexual function in premenopausal women with low libido and low testosterone levels. Testosterone is used for women with Turner's syndrome, premature ovarian failure, HIV infection, or long-term corticosteroid use.
