Correspondence on “Sex steroid priming for growth hormone stimulation testing in children and adolescents with short stature: A systematic review”

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Duncan et al. reviewed the response to growth hormone stimulation testing after priming in peripubertal children. The concern is that there is little research documenting the response to growth hormone treatment in patients with sex hormone primed growth hormone stimulation testing and those unprimed. The controversy about priming or not can be summarized as follows: if one wants to know if the production of growth hormone during puberty will be adequate in terms of peak growth hormone responses then stimulation with priming should be done.
