In order to determine whether growth hormone (GH) deficiency of childhood onset affects the adult bone mineral status, we assessed bone mineral content (BMC) by photon absorptiometry in 30 full-grown GH-deficient men (8 with isolated GH deficiency and 22 with multiple pituitary deficiencies; 28 previously treated with GH) and in 30 male controls matched for… CONTINUE READING
