Hidradenitis suppurativa and metabolic syndrome: a comparative cross‐sectional study of 3207 patients

ConclusionsWe found an association between HS and diabetes, hyperlipidaemia, obesity, hypertension and metabolic syndrome among a large community‐based cohort of patients with HS. Clinicians should take into account that patients with HS may have one or more undiagnosed components of metabolic syndrome despite their young age. Thus, appropriate targeted screening is advised.

Conclusions: The constantly increasing prevalence of NAFLD in the general population can contribute to a growing role of NAFLD/NASH in HCC epidemiology. Moreover, some particular challenges specific for patients with liver steatosis may impede proper HCC diagnosis, treatment and follow-up. PMID: 31631714 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

CONCLUSIONS: Although consumption of a WPND was associated with a larger estimated GV in this pilot study, a larger study is necessary to conclude whether patients must fast longer than 2 hours after consumption of a WPND. PMID: 31630511 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

CONCLUSIONS: In elderly individuals with T1DM, we found associations between dLOC and cognition overall and in men but not women. Underlying sex differences should be considered in future research or interventions on psychosocial characteristics for cognition. PMID: 31633555 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

This study aims to verify if clinical parameters, such as waist circumference and/or body mass index and biohumoral and inflammatory parameters can help predict cardiac structural and functional alterations, through an echocardiogram test in obese children and adolescents. Children were prospectively enrolled at the AUOC outpatients' department of Emergency Paediatrics, University Hospital, Messina, from June to December 2017. Clinical, metabolic parameters and an inflammation marker (HMGB1) were evaluated and a transthoracic echocardiogram was carried out. Twenty-two obese subjects were prospectively enrolled.HMGB1 values...

The metabolic syndrome —otherwise called syndrome X, insulin resistance syndrome, Reaven syndrome, and “the deadly quartet”—is the name given to the aggregate of clinical conditions comprising central and abdominal obesity, systemic hypertension, insulin resistance (or type 2 diabetes mellitus), and atherogenic dy slipidemia. It is a prothrombotic and proinflammatory state characterized by increased inflammatory cytokine activity. In addition to inflammatory dermatoses such as psoriasis, lichen planus, and hidradenitis suppurativa, metabolic syndrome is also commonly associated with accelerated athe...

CONCLUSION: Emerging scientific evidence points to close associations between MetS and common dermatological diseases necessitating to integrate this perspective into clinical management of these diseases. The dermatologist is a key player in early detection of MetS. PMID: 27815622 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Hidradenitis suppurativa (HS) is a chronic inflammatory dermatological disease characterized by nodules, sinus tracts, and subsequent scarring in inverse areas with a prevalence reported from 1-4% [1,2]. HS has been associated with metabolic syndrome, which is a cluster of arterial cardiovascular risk factors i.e. obesity, hypertension, diabetes, and dyslipidemia [3]. Several of these risk factors as well as raised levels of the inflammatory marker C-reactive protein, are also linked to venous thromboembolism i.e.
