Abstract

In critically ill patients peripheral GH insensitivity with high GH and low IGF-I levels have been reported by some but not by other authors. GH and IGF-I levels were assayed in catabolic patients with sepsis (SEP, n°: 11; age: mean ± SEM: 58.5 ± 1.3yr) or trauma (TRA, n°: 13; age: 43.1 ± 4.1 yr) on 1st, 3rd, 5th and 7th day after ICU admission, during artificial nutrition. Basal GH and IGF-I levels were also assayed in 24 normal subjects (NS; age: 48.1 ± 4.3yr), 54 adult hypopituitaric patients with severe GH deficiency (GHD; age: 44.8 ± 2.3yr; GH peak
