What is Tesamorelin Peptide Therapy
Tesamorelin is a synthetic peptide that stimulates the production of growth hormone-releasing hormone (GHRH) in the body. It is approved by the FDA as a treatment for HIV-associated lipodystrophy, a condition that causes fat accumulation in specific body parts. However, it has shown promise in treating other age-related conditions.
How does it Work?
Tesamorelin stimulates the production of GHRH in the body, which in turn increases the production and release of endogenous growth hormone (GH). This increase in endogenous GH has several beneficial effects, including the reduction of visceral adipose tissue (VAT) and liver fat.
Clinical studies have shown that Tesamorelin therapy can effectively reduce VAT and improve liver fibrosis in people with HIV-associated lipodystrophy. One study conducted at Massachusetts General Hospital found that Tesamorelin therapy reduced VAT by 15-20% and improved liver fibrosis by 40%. Another study found that Tesamorelin therapy reduced liver fat by 18% in people with nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD).
Are you lacking growth hormones?
After you’ve finished growing, hGH (human growth hormone) helps to maintain normal body structure and metabolism, promotes cellular growth and regeneration, and strengthens the immune system. You know you’re lacking this vital hormone if you experience these symptoms:
- Loss of muscle mass during the last few years
- Decrease in overall strength and endurance
- An increased need for recovery time after physical activity
- Skin wounds and muscle strains take longer to heal
- Loss of body hair
- Your skin becomes wrinkled and thin
- Fat around your waist that’s tough to get rid of
- Fat around your knees that just won’t go away
- A decline in memory and cognitive speed
- Reduction in the quality of your sleep
- Loss of interest in social activities
- Persistent fatigue
Benefits of Tesamorelin Peptide Therapy
Tesamorelin has several benefits, including:
Reduced Fat Accumulation
Tesamorelin is approved as a treatment for HIV-associated lipodystrophy. It works by reducing the accumulation of abdominal fat, which is a common problem in people with this condition.
Improved Body Composition
Tesamorelin therapy has also been shown to improve body composition, including increased lean body mass and decreased fat mass. This can lead to a more youthful and healthy appearance.
Improved Cognitive Function
Some studies suggest that Tesamorelin therapy can improve cognitive function, including memory and attention span. This could be beneficial in treating age-related cognitive decline.
Improved Bone Health
Tesamorelin therapy increases bone density and reduces the risk of fractures. This is beneficial in treating osteoporosis, a common age-related condition.
Side Effects of Tesamorelin Peptide Therapy
Unlike many prescription weight loss drugs, Tesamorelin is not associated with significant side effects, such as high blood pressure, heart palpitations, or mood changes. It targets VAT specifically, which is a significant health risk factor in people with HIV-associated lipodystrophy and other conditions. Other weight loss interventions, such as diet and exercise, may not be effective at targeting VAT specifically.
While Tesamorelin therapy is generally considered safe, it may cause some side effects, including:
Injection Site Reactions
Injection site reactions, including redness, swelling, and pain, are common with Tesamorelin therapy. These reactions usually go away on their own within a few days.
Some people may experience nausea while undergoing Tesamorelin therapy. This side effect usually goes away on its own within a few days.
Headache is another common side effect of Tesamorelin therapy. This side effect usually goes away on its own within a few days.
Dosage and Administration
Tesamorelin therapy is administered by injection, usually once a day. The dosage and frequency of shots may differ based on the individual’s condition and response to therapy.
Precautions and Contraindications
Tesamorelin therapy is not recommended for people who are allergic to Tesamorelin or any of its ingredients.
It is also not recommended for pregnant or breastfeeding women because of the following contraindications:
- Tesamorelin therapy may cause glucose intolerance and increase the risk of type 2 diabetes
- Tesamorelin can harm an unborn baby or cause birth defects
- Patients with a history of severe breathing problems, complications from surgery, injury, kidney or liver disease, cancer, non-cancerous growths, sugar, or any allergy, who are taking other medications, during pregnancy and breastfeeding
- Patients who have a history of tumor or surgery of the pituitary gland, a history of head injury, or radiation treatment
