Both have its origin during the intra-uterine period [55, 61–69]. Modification of GnRH neurons at the hypothalamic level may cause an impaired gonadotropin secretion leading to delayed puberty. On the other hand, we cannot exclude gonadal impairment since a disturbance in LH receptor production of the Leydig cell may cause in impaired sexual development as well [70]. The important phases of gonadal development in the male rat and the human male almost take place during the same periods [71, 72].

Birth weight is only a crude index of early growth and reveals nothing about the success of a fetus at achieving its growth potential. Both the role of IUGR and mechanisms behind the initiation of puberty are still elusive. A key area of future research will be to identify markers of early growth restriction which may be of future diagnostic use as early predictors of adult disease. However, it must be kept in mind that there is a mutual dependency of genetic and environmental factors. In order to judge between them, research on pubertal development in monozygotic and dizygotic twins discordant for birth weight is of great interest.

It is possible that differences in methodology could contribute to some of these discrepancies. Methodological Considerations A single blood measurement of cortisol or ACTH level provides a poor estimate of adrenal function because cortisol secretion is pulsatile. 00 h [27]. Potential confounding factors that may raise fasting cortisol levels include longer duration of fasting, mild infection, and fear of venepuncture. Other methods for assessing cortisol secretion include 24-hour plasma cortisol profiles, and timed urine collections for measurement of total cortisol metabolites.
