Low growth hormone secretion in patients with fibromyalgia--a preliminary report on 10 patients and 10 controls.

  [ 22 votes ]   [ Discuss This Article ]
By Bagge E, Bengtsson BA, Carlsson L, Carlsson J • www.ProHealth.com • January 1, 1998


OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the secretion of growth hormone in patients with fibromyalgia (FM).

METHODS: Serum concentrations of growth hormone (24 h profiles), insulin-like growth factor I (IGF), and IGF binding protein-3 were determined in 10 women with FM and in 10 healthy controls. Quality of sleep was assessed by means of a visual analog scale.

RESULTS: Sleep was significantly more disturbed in the patients than in controls. A significantly lower secretion of growth hormone was found in the patients in comparison with healthy controls.

CONCLUSION: These results suggest that growth hormone secretion is decreased in patients with FM. Substitution therapy with low doses of growth hormone may be worth evaluating in the treatment of FM.
