Abstract

A portable constant withdrawal pump was used to determine consecutive 30 min integrated concentrations of growth hormone (ICGH) for a 24 hr period in 18 normal subjects, ages 5 to 28 yr. Seven prepubertal, 5 pubertal and 6 young adult subjects were studied under conditions of normal activity. Pubertal, prepubertal and adult subjects had peaks during waking hr as well as during sleep, but peaks in the adults were usually lower than in the children. Using an analysis of variance, a significant (P
