Growth hormone secretion and sensitivity in men with idiopathic osteoporosis

Abstract

Previous studies have suggested that insulin-like growth factor-I (IGF-I) and its binding proteins (IGFBPs) have a pathogenetic role in idiopathic osteoporosis. To investigate this question further we compared 20 men with idiopathic osteoporosis with 12 healthy, age-matched men regarding growth hormone (GH) secretion and sensitivity. GH samples were drawn… (More)
