Increased insulin sensitivity in young, growth hormone deficient children.
OBJECTIVE: Although growth hormone (GH) has well documented insulin antagonistic effects, GH deficient adults often demonstrate insulin resistance. In young GH deficient children, increased susceptibility to hypoglycaemia might indicate increased insulin sensitivity; however, this has not been documented. We therefore determined insulin sensitivity in GH deficient and GH sufficient children. DESIGN AND PATIENTS: Prospective study of children undergoing insulin tolerance tests for clinical inv...Expand abstract
