Undernutrition is a stressor with long-term consequences, and the effect of nutritional recovery on cortisol and thyroid hormone status is
unknown. To investigate basal thyroid hormones and the cortisol response to a cold pressor test in children recovered from undernutrition, a
cross-sectional study was undertaken on children (6–16 years) separated into four groups: control (n 41), stunted (n 31), underweight (n 27)
and recovered (n 31).
