  • Growth Hormone Research Society Workshop on Adult Growth Hormone Deficiency
  • Based on the increasing body of evidence that adults with GH deficiency (somatotropin deficiency) have impaired health that improves with GH replacement, many countries have already approved the use of GH for replacement therapy in adults with GH deficiency. To ensure that patients are appropriately identified and treated, the Growth Hormone Research Society (GRS) convened a workshop on April 14–17, 1997, in Port Stephens, Australia, to formulate consensus guidelines for the diagnosis and treatment of adults with GH deficiency. The GRS invited scientists with expertise in the field, representatives from industry involved in the manufacture of recombinant human GH, and representatives from health authorities from a number of countries to attend the workshop, all of whom contributed to the consensus guidelines as detailed below.
