Area under the Curve of Growth Hormone, An Additional Tool in Assessing Stimulation Test Results

Yeshayahu Yonatan , Frizinsky Shirly

Introduction: Growth hormone (GH) deficiency is diagnosed through the combination of clinical observation and low GH upon stimulation, in two separate stimulation tests. Normal response is considered as a single rise of GH above the local cutoff point which is used, and differs between countries and range between 7–10 mcg/L. The aim of our study was to assess whether a calculation of area under the curve (AUC) of GH can be used as an additional tool in the diagnosis of GH...

Shox gene deficiency which causes short stature is a known indication for treatment with growth hormone. The prevalence of shox deficiency among children with idiopathic short stature has a high variability in different studies and ranges between 1.5-17%. We aimed to determine the incidence of SHOX haploinsufficiency in our region and to assess the genotype-phenotype relation which may help with setting criteria in the decision to which patients should we offer this genetic te...

Background: Congenital hypothyroidism is a common condition with reported incidence between 1/2000 – 1/4000 live births. In approximately 85% of cases this is sporadic due to a structural abnormality of the thyroid gland. Approximately 15% of cases are hereditary and secondary to thyroid dyshormonogenesis. Most of these are due to mutations in one of the genes involved in iodine transport or organification, mutations in the thyroglobulin gene or d...

Background: U.V. radiation exposure is the major environmental risk factor for skin cancers. However, sun avoidance leads to inadequate vitamin D levels which impair bone health. Moreover, numerous studies linked decreased sunlight exposure to non-skin cancer incidence or survival.Objective and hypotheses: To compare sun habits in a cohort of paediatric patients with a history of malignancy to healthy controls. We hypothesized that sun exposure will be d...

Introduction: Primary ovarian Insufficiency (POI) occurring in youth is a devastating condition. POI is characterized by at least 4 months of disordered menses in association with menopausal follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) levels. The most common causes of POI in adolescence are iatrogenic and chromosomal abnormalities. Data are scarce regarding the incidence of POI in adolescents.Objectives: We aimed to estimate the incidence and the distribution of ...
