Low circulating IGF-I levels in hyperthyroidism are associated with decreased GH response to GH-releasing hormone.

Abstract:

OBJECTIVE: Several abnormalities in the GH response to pharmacological stimuli have been described in hyperthyroidism. Both normal and high serum IGF-I levels have been reported, as well as a decrease in IGF-I bioactivity. We have evaluated the GH response to GH-releasing hormone (GHRH) in hyperthyroid patients and the effects of hyperthyroidism on serum IGF-I levels. The possible relations between nutritional status, thyroid hormones and IGF-I levels were also investigated. We also studied t...
