Increasing Lean Body Mass, Phase Angle, and Total Body Water But Decreasing Body Fat Among Short-statured Children Born Small-for-Gestational Age on GH Treatment

Volkl Thomas M K , Stumpf Isabel , Dorr Helmuth-G

Background: There is a small proportion of children born SGA without postnatal catch-up growth who are presented with persistent short stature, low BMI, and decreased lean body mass (LBM). Data on body composition are rarely reported in the literature. Our study addresses the question whether human recombinant GH treatment could affect body composition in these SGA children or not.Design: We included 58 SGA children (n=20 females) with SGA (birt...

Dorr Helmuth G , Pichl Carolin , Marx Michaela , Herzog Nadine , Klaffenbach Daniela , Volkl Thomas

Background: Reports on obesity, high blood pressure and reduced insulin sensitivity in children with classical congenital adrenal hyperplasia (CAH) indicate an increased cardiovascular risk.Objective and Hypotheses: To evaluate potential mechanisms, we analysed various parameters of the carbohydrate metabolism in children and adolescents with CAH.Method: Out of 86 patients with classical CAH, n=41 (21 m, 20 f; ages: 6.9&#1...

Waist-to-Height Ratio, Waist-to-Hip Ratio, Waist Circumference, and BMI in Children and Adolescents with Classical Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia Due to 21-Hydoxylase Deficiency (CAH)

Dorr Helmuth G. , Marx Michaela , Herzog Nadine , Gassmann Katja , Pichl Carolin , Volkl Thomas

Background: It has been reported that children with congenital adrenal hyperplasia (CAH) have higher BMI, increased body fat and greater waist-to-hip ratio (WHR) than control children.Objective and hypotheses: Recently it was speculated that the screening potential of waist-to-height ratio (WHtR) and waist circumference (WC) for cardio-metabolic risk in adults is higher than WHR and BMI.Method: To review this hypothesis, we studied...

Objective: KIGS (Pfizer International Growth Survey) was a large, international database of pediatric patients who received recombinant human growth hormone (rhGH) as prescribed in real-world clinical settings. This analysis evaluated the long-term safety and efficacy data from all participants until KIGS close in 2012.Methods: Children with growth disorders and treated with rhGH (Genotropin® [somatropin]...
