Growth Hormone (ICMA) LabCorp


LabCorp Test #: 004275, CPT: 83003 (per specimen)

Growth Hormone (Immunochemiluminometric assay/ICMA) is typically tested to help diagnose growth hormone (GH) deficiency or growth hormone excess (less common). The test is also used in the evaluation of pituitary gland function and to monitor the effectiveness of growth hormone therapy. Growth hormone is essential for normal growth and development in children and helps regulate metabolism in both children and adults. The pituitary gland produces and releases GH in to the blood in pulses throughout the day.
