Growth Hormone

Reference Range

Random growth hormone (GH) levels in a healthy person range as follows:

Men: < 5 ng/mL or < 226 pmol/L

Women: < 10 ng/mL or < 452 pmol/L

Children: 0-20 ng/mL or 0-904 pmol/L

Newborns: 5-40 ng/mL or 226-1808 pmol/L

GH suppression test value (using 100 g glucose) in a healthy person is as follows:

< 0-2 ng/mL or 0-90 pmol/L or undetectable

GH stimulation test values (using arginine, glucagon, or insulin) are as follows:

Normal peak value: >10 ng/mL or >452 pmol/L

Intermediate peak value: >5 ng/mL or >226 pmol/L

Subnormal peak value: < 5 ng/mL

SI Units = Conventional Units X 1 (mcg/L = ng/mL X 1)
