Ibuprofen Fails to Increase Plasma Growth Hormone Levels in Humans.

SCHMITT, JAMES K. MD

Abstract

In eight healthy volunteers, basal and arginine-stimulated plasma glucose and growth hormone levels were determined during administration of a placebo and after 3 days of ibuprofen (800 mg four times daily). Ibuprofen had no significant effect on basal or stimulated plasma glucose or growth hormone levels. As is not the case with indomethacin, ibuprofen fails to increase basal and arginine-stimulated plasma growth hormone levels. This suggests that the effect of indomethacin on growth hormone secretion is due to a mechanism unrelated to inhibition of prostaglandin synthesis.
