    It is widely recommended that consideration should be given to the therapeutic use of growth hormone (GH) in adults with GH deficiency, whether the condition is of childhood or adult onset. One reason for this recommendation is the possibility that such treatment may reduce the excess...

    Ghrelin plasma concentrations increase during fasting and fall rapidly after nutrient ingestion. We hypothesized that insulin or glucose could regulate ghrelin secretion by a feedback mechanism. In this randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled crossover study, three different study days were...

    Abstract A 12.5-year-old girl presented with short stature. Insulin-like growth factor 1(IGF-I) and insulin- like growth factor binding protein (IGFBP-3) were below the 0.1 percentile. Growth hormone provocation tests disclosed normal responses to L-arginine and insulin-induced hypoglycaemia. A...
