Gardstedt Jenni , Niklasson Aimon , Aronson Stefan , Albertsson-Wikland Kerstin , Holmgren Anton

Background: Both timing of menarche and growth patterns have changed with time (secular changes), highlighting the need of updated knowledge in this topic1. Questions how growth is related to menarche are common in pediatric/pediatric endocrine outpatient clinics. The QEPS-growth model makes it possible to conduct detailed analyses of pubertal growth2.Objective: To investigate the relationship betwe...

Background: Few studies have investigated in detail how the pubertal breast maturation in girls is related to the pubertal growth spurt in a longitudinal setting. The golden standard for assessment of secondary sex characteristics for girls includes breast development (B1-B5)1. The different maturation stages follow the increasing estradiol production from the ovaries also giving rise to the pubertal growth spurt. The QEPS-growth model makes it poss...

Background, objective and hypotheses: By using QEPS, a new mathematic growth model, different components of growth can be analyzed, comparing secular trends of prepubertal and pubertal growth in Swedish birth cohorts born 1974 and 1990.Materials and methods: Two birth cohorts followed to adult height (AH) born around 1974 (1691 boys; 1666 girls) and 1990 (1647 boys; 1501 girls) being healthy, Nordic and born term. A subpopulation of 1974 (1177 boys; 1168...
