The growth of 184 children with Type 1 diabetes was analysed using data collected prospectively in the Oxford district between 1969 and 1992. The overall mean height standard deviation score (Ht SDS +/- SD) at diagnosis was 0.35 +/- 1.05 which was significantly greater than the national standard of Tanner (1966). However, there is evidence of a secular(More)
OBJECTIVE It has been proposed that the dissociation between growth hormone secretion and insulin-like growth factor-I (IGF-I) concentrations in insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus arises because of partial resistance at the GH receptor. In order to explore this hypothesis further we have examined the relations between IGF-I, GH-binding protein (GHBP), and(More)
Reduced insulin-like growth factor bioactivity has been linked to poor metabolic control and growth hormone hypersecretion in adolescents with Type 1 diabetes. The safety and efficacy of recombinant human insulin-like growth factor I administered subcutaneously in a dose of 40 micrograms kg-1 for 28 days was studied in a group of 6 adolescent male subjects(More)
OBJECTIVE We examined the relationship between GH concentrations and free insulin concentrations, used as an index of insulin sensitivity, before and after recombinant human insulin-like growth factor I (RhIGF-I) administration in adolescents with insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (IDDM). DESIGN AND PATIENTS Growth hormone concentrations were assessed(More)
OBJECTIVE It has been proposed that low IGF-I levels and reduced IGF-I bioactivity may lead to elevated GH levels in adolescents with insulin dependent diabetes (IDDM). We have therefore studied the effects of human recombinant insulin-like growth factor I (rhIGF-I) administration on GH levels and GH secretion in adolescents with IDDM. PATIENTS Nine late(More)
Insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (IDDM) during puberty is associated with a reduction in circulating concentrations of insulin-like growth factor-I (IGF-I) and low IGF bioactivity. Altered levels of the IGF-binding proteins (IGFBPs), including low IGFBP-3 and elevated IGFBP-1, have also been described. These abnormalities have been linked to poor growth(More)
OBJECTIVE Unlike IGF-I and its principal binding proteins, data regarding IGF-II levels have not been well defined in normal subjects and those with insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (IDDM). We have therefore measured IGF-II, as well as IGF-I, and IGFBP-3, levels in a large cohort of subjects with IDDM and in age/sex matched controls. PATIENTS One(More)
