Lopez-Siguero J P , Martinez-Aedo M J , Bermudez J A , Cabrinety N , Bosch J , Lechuga J L , Torralba R

Background: Treatment with GH of children born SGA allows an increase in growth velocity (GV) and improves adult height. Increased insulin resistance has been described in these patients, which reverts after interrupting GH administration. However, long-term metabolic consequences are not clearly established.Objective and hypotheses: Describe insulin resistance (HOMA-IR index) and auxological development (GV and height) in SGA children treated with GH fo...
