Table 2 Correlations between the indices of thyroid function and the components of somatotrophic axis.

From: Do IGF-I concentrations better reflect growth hormone (GH) action in children with short stature than the results of GH stimulating tests? Evidence from the simultaneous assessment of thyroid function
