Introduction: Adult height in individuals with Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia (CAH) is reduced compared to the general population as their growth during childhood can be negatively impacted by both the disease and its treatment. Excess production of androgens through aromatization to estrogens can accelerate height velocity and skeletal maturity, and lead to short stature if not adequately suppressed. Over suppression of adrenal steroids through excess glucoco...

Introduction: Cortisol secretion is circadian-driven and plays a significant role in sleep quality. In children with congenital adrenal hyperplasia (CAH) hydrocortisone is the preferred treatment. Hydrocortisone has a short half-life producing alternating hyper- and hypocortisolemia, a non-physiologic cortisol profile, likely disrupting sleep. However, minimal literature exists on sleep health in children with CAH.Objective:</str...
