OBJECTIVE Growth hormone deficiency in adults with hypopituitarism has previously received little attention. Recent data, however, suggest that GH deflciency might be essential for the long‐term prognosis of these patients. Earlier studies have documented that GH regulates body composition; in this, body composition in adult patients with hypopituitarism including GH deficiency was studied. DESIGN A follow‐up study of patients with hypopituitarism on routine replacement therapy with l‐thyroxine… Expand
