1. The Influence of Serum Cortisol Levels on Growth Hormone Responsiveness to GH-Releasing Hormone Plus GH-Releasing Peptide-6 in Patients with Hypocortisolism.
Match Strength: 11.650
The aim of this study was to evaluate the influence of circulating cortisol levels on the somatotroph responsiveness to the most potent stimuli of growth hormone (GH) secretion, the GHRH+GHRP-6 test. We studied 12 patients with hypocortisolism (10 with Addison's disease and 2 with isolated ACTH deficiency) before and after glucocorticoid (GC) replacement therapy and compared them with 14 healthy subjects. In the 10 patients with Addison's disease, GH responses (GH peak, microg/L) to GHRH+GHRP-6 were similar both during GC, (68.2+/-12.8) and off GC (60.3+/-14.1) therapy and did not differ from ...
