GH is primarily of interest in the diagnosis and treatment of various forms of inappropriate growth hormone secretion. Growth hormone measurements in children are used in the evaluation of short stature and help differentiate low GH production from other sources of growth failure. Stimulation and suppression tests are often more meaningful than random measurements.
No special preparation is needed for GH. Inform your doctor if you are on any medications or have any underlying medical conditions or allergies before undergoing GH. Your doctor depending on your condition will give specific instructions.
