Changes in muscle volume, strength, and bioenergetics during recombinant human growth hormone (GH) therapy in adults with GH deficiency.

Adults with GH deficiency (GHD) suffer from muscle weakness, which can be caused by the frequently reported decrease in muscle mass. However, measurements of both muscle strength and mass of muscle tested are scarce in adults with GHD. The aim of the present study was, therefore, to investigate intrinsic muscle strength (strength expressed per muscle volume… CONTINUE READING
