Insulin Sensitivity Modulates the Growth Response during the First Year of High-Dose Growth Hormone Treatment in Short Prepubertal Children Born Small for Gestational Age
Hormone Research in Paediatrics, 08/17/2012
Gies I et al. – Higher insulin sensitivity at the start of growth hormone (GH) therapy is associated with greater first–year growth response to GH, and could be a promising parameter in selecting prepubertal short small for gestational age (SGA) children for GH treatment. However, this finding needs to be confirmed in larger studies.
