Effect of growth hormone replacement on BMD in adult-onset growth hormone deficiency.

Abstract

UNLABELLED To determine if replacement of GH improves BMD in adult-onset GHD, we administered GH in physiologic amounts to men and women with GHD. GH replacement significantly increased spine BMD in the men by 3.8%.
