BACKGROUND Hypopituitarism in adults is associated with increased vascular mortality, which has been attributed to GH deficiency. OBJECTIVE To compare the lipid profile and coronary risk predicted by the Framingham Heart Study equation in GH-deficient hypopituitary patients and healthy age and gender-matched controls. DESIGN A cross-sectional observational study. METHODS We studied 50 adult-onset growth hormone deficient hypopituitary patients (23F, 27M), on appropriate conventional… CONTINUE READING
