It has been reported that adult obese subjects present a reduced growth hormone secretion. As no data are available in the pubertal period, which is characterized in lean subjects by an increased spontaneous growth hormone secretion, the growth hormone circadian concentration was studied in a group of 18 obese male subjects in different pubertal stages, and compared to 26 age-matched control subjects. The data observed evidenced no statistically relevant differences regarding LH and FSH… CONTINUE READING
