Revised GH and cortisol cut-points for the glucagon stimulation test in the evaluation of GH and hypothalamic–pituitary–adrenal axes in adults: results from a prospective randomized multicenter study

Abstract

Recent studies suggest using lower GH cut-points for the glucagon stimulation test (GST) in diagnosing adult GH deficiency (GHD), especially in obese patients. There are limited data on evaluating GH and hypothalamic–pituitary–adrenal (HPA) axes using weight-based dosing for the GST. To define GH and cortisol cut-points to diagnose adult GHD and secondary… (More)
