How Does GHD Effect Body Composition and Cardiovascular Risk Biomarkers?
Body composition and biomarkers of cardiovascular risk are affected by both growth hormone excess and growth hormone deficiency (GHD). While that is a known fact, it’s unknown how developing growth hormone deficiency after being treated for acromegaly affects body composition and cardiovascular risks. A study published in 2012 examined this.
