Body composition, bone metabolism, and heart structure and function in growth hormone (GH)-deficient adults before and after GH replacement therapy at low doses.

Abstract

The effects of recombinant GH doses (10 micrograms/kg.day, 3 times a week for 6 months) lower than those previously used in the treatment of GH-deficient adults (GHDA) on body composition, bone mineral content, and heart structure and function were investigated in seven (six males and one female, aged 25-27 yr) GHDA. They were studied before treatment… (More)
