The type of disability (isolated or multiple) will depend on whether the patient also has other pituitary deficiency homonyms besides GHD. Growth hormone is produced by the pituitary gland. These secretes many different hormones, which are also essential to maintain normal body functions.
Degree of disability.
- Partial GHD
- Severe GHD
Stimulation tests are used to determine the degree of deficiency of growth hormone in patients.
Primary – pituitary origin Secondary – hypothalamic origin As described above, the pituitary secretes growth hormone. However, a part of the brain known as the hypothalamus regulates the secretion of growth hormone by the pituitary gland. Thus, deficiency of growth hormone may originate in the pituitary or hypothalamus.
