Abstract

We have evaluated baseline and I-dopa-stimulated peripheral growth hormone releasing hormone (pGHRH) secretion in 6 obese prepubertal children and in 7 age-matched controls. Baseline pGHRH levels were no different between obese (36.6±9.8 pg/ml, mean±SE) and control children (40.6±10.1 pg/ml). Administration of I-dopa (500 mg po) caused a significant increase of pGHRH levels in both the obese (65.3±19.8 pg/ml, p
