Alcohol, slow wave sleep, and the somatotropic
The inhalation glucocorticosteroids (IGCS), which are in use for a long time as a basic anti-inflammatory BA treatment, is capable of influencing many key factors involved in the children body development: secretion and effect of somatotropic
hormone, effect of an insulin-like growth factor, collagen synthesis, and production by adrenal glands of androgens [10,11].
ACTH: Adrenocorticotropic hormones; DCA: Desoxycorticosterone; GAS: General adaptation syndrome; STH: Somatotropic
hormone (growth hormone)
(2008) observed that the IGF-I levels accurately reflected growth rate prior to elevations in sex steroids, suggesting that IGF-I may provide an endocrine signal between the somatotropic
and reproductive axes that growth rate and/or size are sufficient to initiate gonad development.
A role for the somatotropic
axis in neural development, injury and disease.

This may reflect the lack of body weight change in the SI mice and indicates that chronic social isolation stress exerts a greater effect on adiposity with little impact on the somatotropic
