Abstract

Changes in the insulin-like growth factors (IGFs) and IGF binding proteins (IGFBPs) with growth hormone (GH) treatment in children on chronic steroids are not well characterized. Six children (9.8-16.8 yr) with long standing steroid dependent nephrotic syndrome had serum samples analyzed before and during one year GH treatment, nineteen healthy age-matched children (5.9-12.0 yr) acted as controls. Before treatment, all six children had severe short stature, low height velocity and suppressed GH levels. However, surprisingly, serum levels of total IGF-I, total IGF-II and 'free' IGF-I (RIA, Diagnostic Systems Laboratories, TX) were elevated significantly compared to the control group (p
