The study objective was to investigate which baseline factors can accurately predict plasma high-affinity growth hormone (GH)-binding protein (GHBP) levels after GH replacement therapy in patients with GH deficiency (GHD). The study group consisted of 36 GHD patients (22 men and 14 women; mean age, 43.1 years; (range, 21 to 60) known to have adult-onset GHD for many years (range, 4 to 22). They were randomly divided into a GH-treated group (n = 19) and a placebo group (n = 17). Body composition… CONTINUE READING
