The decline in pulsatile GH secretion throughout early adulthood in mice is exacerbated by dietary-induced weight gain.

Abstract

The transition between puberty and adulthood is accompanied by a slowing in linear growth. Although GH is a key factor that drives somatic development into adulthood, early adulthood coincides with a reduction in circulating levels of GH. To this extent, a pathological decline in postpubertal GH secretion is detrimental to attainment of peak lean muscle… (More)
