There is currently a debate about the use of pharmacological and physiological tests to define GH deficiency and predict response to GH therapy. In addition, a good response to therapy has also been described in subjects without GH deficiency. For further information, we reevaluated GH secretion during replacement therapy in a group of children defined as GH deficient and examined response to therapy in the subjects subdivided according to secretion. One hundred eighty four children (113 boys… CONTINUE READING
