Experimental: Pegvisomant arm
Pegvisomant 20 mg subcutaneously Qday x 28 days will be administered by the study subject.
Pegvisomant 20 mg subcutaneously Qday will be administered by the study subject for 28 days during this study.
Other Name: Somavert
- Insulin Sensitivity [ Time Frame: 28 days ]
Investigators will measure insulin sensitivity via hyperinsulinemic euglycemic clamp prior to the initiation of the study medication and then again at the end of the 28 days to evaluate the effect of pegvisomant on insulin sensitivity and reported as HOMA-IR.
HOMA-IR was derived from fasting insulin and fasting glucose by the calculation: fasting insulin (microU/L) x fasting glucose (nmol/L)/22.5
- Lipolysis [ Time Frame: 28 days ]Treatment with pegvisomant is expected to alter lipolysis. To assess this investigators will do fasting and steady state stable isotope measurements prior to treatment with pegvisomant and at day 28 after treatment with pegvisomant.
