Age-related reductions in growth hormone (GH) and insulin-like growth factor-I (IGF-I) may contribute to decreased muscle mass and strength in older persons. The relationship of this phenomenon to skeletal muscle bioenergetics has not been reported. We sought to determine whether administration of GH-releasing hormone (GHRH) would sustain increases in GH and IGF-I and improve skeletal muscle function and selected measures of body composition and metabolism. We measured GH secretion, muscle… CONTINUE READING
