Patterns of GH output and their synchrony with short-term height increments influence stature and growth performance in normal children.

Abstract

GH is the principal hormone driving growth throughout childhood, but the mechanism by which changing GH secretion is translated into height (Ht) remains undefined. We previously demonstrated that variability in urinary GH (uGH) output over weeks is an important statistical determinant of stature in normal children. We now examine the relationship between… (More)
