Growth hormone reduces osteoporotic fracture risk in older women

August 28, 2015

Read the Perspective from Roberto Salvatori, MD

Older women with osteoporosis treated with growth hormone showed a reduced risk for fracture and improved bone density that continued for years after stopping treatment, according to research in The Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism.

In a randomized, double blind, placebo-controlled trial, researchers found that the women assigned GH injections for 36 months reduced their rate of osteoporotic fracture by 50% compared with women who received a placebo injection for 18 months.
