Der Einfluss des Wachstumshormons auf den Fettstoffwechel kleinwüchsiger Kinder und Jugendlicher

Universität Rostock, 2009

Abstract: In this study the influence of the growth hormone on the fat oxidation should be examined. Children with short stature were observed at the age of 6 to 14 years who were treated with growth hormone over a period of three months. An increase was measured by body height and body weight. A change of the fat metabolism was examined by 13CO2-breath tests with an oral applied 13C-marked alga lipid mixture which represents the fat metabolism. It showed a significant increase of the fat oxidation under growth hormone therapy.
