Abstract

Short-term fasting does not increase GH secretion in obesity and does not distinguish somatotroph function in obese from that in severe GHD adults. Short-term fasting in obesity has attenuated effects on insulin and IGFBP-1 secretion while it normally increases free fatty acids in spite of any change in GH secretion.
