  • Although the major daily peak in plasma growth hormone (GH) level normally occurs during the early part of nocturnal sleep, it is known that in about one quarter of young healthy men, peaks in circulating human GH occur before sleep onset. Possible factors associated with these nocturnal peaks were investigated in the absence of sleep, including subjectively defined sleepiness, electroencephalographically defined drowsiness and short lapses into sleep, measures of cortisol and temperature… CONTINUE READING
