Once reserved solely for the treatment of short stature, the now readily available recombinant GH has expanded the use of the hormone to include the treatment of cardiovascular, renal, muscular, skeletal, immunological, psychosocial, and metabolic abnormalities associated with GH deficiency. There are also proposals for the widespread use of the hormone to ameliorate or reverse aging. However, this extensive use of GH has revealed intrinsic sexual dimorphisms in which females are considerably… CONTINUE READING
