Abstract: To our knowledge, no controlled studies of the effects of long-term growth hormone replacement on fracture risk in adult patients with growth hormone deficiency exist. We assessed the effect of growth hormone treatment on fracture risk in patients with growth hormone deficiency from the international Hypopituitary Control and Complications Study (HypoCCS) surveillance database.
