          Abstract

          In 24 patients with a functioning kidney transplant, hypoglycemia-induced somatotropin (STH), adrenocorticotropin and cortisol secretion was studied. In a further 24 transplanted patients, secretion of lutropin, follitropin and testosterone after the intravenous administration of luliberin was assessed. Data obtained in this paper suggest the presence of abnormal function of the pituitary-adrenal and pituitary-gonadal axis and abnormal STH secretion in patients with a functioning transplant. Type and duration of immunosuppressive therapy seem to influence the intensity of the above-mentioned endocrine abnormalities.
