Plasma growth hormone (GH) concentrations after insulin and arginine stimulation were estimated in 11 dialyzed and 6 non-dialyzed children with chronic renal failure. Twenty healthy children served as controls. Plasma GH peak concentration and estimation of the total area under the plasma GH concentration-time curve by the trapezoidal rule were used to(More)
Metoclopramide (MCP), a derivative of procainamide was compared with exercise, arginine, insulin and thyrotropin releasing hormone (TRH) as a prolactin (PRL) releaser in children. The peak response of plasma PRL after oral administration of MCP was greater than that after strenuous exercise and after i.v. administration of pharmacodynamic agents. Normal PRL(More)
The growth hormone (GH) and prolactin (PRL) responses to metoclopramide (MCP) were compared to those with arginine and insulin-induced hypoglycaemia in eight children. While a significant rise in GH release after stimulation with arginine and insulin occurred in all subjects (P less than 0.05), no significant increase after MCP ingestion was observed.(More)
Basal prolactin concentrations in forty-eight children with acute or chronic renal disease have been compared with those in thirty-four healthy control subjects. Elevated basal prolactin levels and an abnormal prolactin response to intravenous thyrotropin-releasing hormone were found in children with chronic renal failure on maintenance intermittent(More)
Isolated Triiodothyronine (T3) hyperthyroidism in childhood is rate. The incidence among hyperthyroid children is about 10%. The authors present a case history of a 12 2/12 year old girl with T3-thyrotoxicosis. Cause, diagnosis and therapy are thoroughly discussed. The importance to estimating serum T3 concentration for establishing the diagnosis of T3(More)
