Abstract:

 
Restarting rhGH in adolescents with childhood-onset (CO-) GHD is usually based on GH re-test, IGF-1, additional pituitary hormone deficiencies and pituitary morphology. Short-term changes of body composition in adolescents with CO-GHD when off rhGH may contribute to the identification of those in need of continuation of treatment. In this prospective single-centre study the body composition of 58 adolescents (12 females) with low-likelihood severe GHD of adolescence was measured by DXA 6 months before, at rhGH discontinuation as well as 6 and 12 months thereafter.
