We studied the false positive ratios of arginine and insulin tests in short children. Totally, the false positive ratio was about 22%. There was no statistical difference in the false positive ratios between arginine tests and insulin tests. It did not seem that the false positive ratio was influenced by height or IGF-I levels.
