Hypopituitary patients have an increased prevalence of cardiovascular risk factors

Matuszek Beata , Kowalczyk Mariusz , Zapolski Tomasz , Nowakowski Andrzej

Introduction: Hypopituitary patients receiving conventional hormone replacement, but without GH replacement, have an increased mortality from cardiovascular diseases. Inadequate hormone replacement is a possible cause of this increased mortality. GH deficiency in adult patients has been associated with several cardiovascular risk factors, including hyperlipidemia, increased abdominal adiposity, and impaired insulin sensitivity.The aim of the study is an ...
