AbstractIn addition to its well-established effects on linear growth in childhood and adolescence, growth hormone (GH) has both direct and indirect actions on bone remodelling and homeostasis. In this review, the discussion begins with the influence of childhood-onset growth hormone deficiency (CO-GHD) on bone mineral accretion. The limitations of methods of assessing bone mineral density (BMD) are highlighted and specific influential factors, which affect peak bone mass achievement and therefore skeletal health in later life, are evaluated.
