Limited data exist describing direct volumetric measures of BMD (g/cm3) in adults with severe GHD or GH-insufficiency. We measured BMD in 30 GHD adults (peak GH to stimulation <3 mcg/l), 24 GH-insufficient adults (GHI, pGH 3 - 7 mcg/l), and 30 age/gender matched control subjects by DXA and pQCT.DXA performed at the lumbar spine, femoral neck, and total hip confirmed GHD adults to have reduced BMD (g/cm2) at all sites (p = 0.05, p...
