uul A Abstract Hypogonadism may be suspected if puberty is delayed. Pubertal delay may be caused by a normal physiological variant, by primary ovarian insufficiency (Turner syndrome), or reflect congenital hypogonadotropic hypogonadism (HH; genetic) or acquired HH (brain lesions). Any underlying chronic disease like inflammatory bowel disease, celiac disease, malnutrition (anorexia or orthorexia), or excessive physical activity may also result in functional HH. Thus, girls with delayed puberty should be evaluated for an underlying pathology before any treatment, including oral contraception, is initiated. Estrogen...

Authors: Ueland GA, Husebye ES Abstract Pharmacological glucocorticoid treatment is associated with adverse metabolic consequences such as hypertension, overweight, reduced glucose tolerance, diabetes mellitus and ultimately increased mortality in cardiovascular disease. Here we review the evidence of detrimental effects of hormone replacement therapy in adrenal insufficiency (AI). Registry studies indicate increased cardiovascular mortality, hypertension, diabetes, and dyslipidemia in both primary and secondary AI, but when cohorts with carefully characterized patients are studied the picture is less clear, and re...

CONCLUSIONS: This large, retrospective real-world study demonstrated that adherence to levothyroxine remains a concern among patients with hypothyroidism and that differences in adherence may exist across levothyroxine formulations. PMID: 29874941 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

CONCLUSION:Our study using a clinically relevantin vitro model suggests that bisphosphonate treatment is more effective for patients with osteoporosis than its preventive effect for healthy person. In addition, patient-specific responses to bisphosphonates should be considered rather than bisphosphonate type prior to prescription. Further investigations are needed to determine how bisphosphonates influence hBMSCs function to mediate bone quality and turnover in osteoporotic patients. Such studies can generate novel approaches to treat age-related osteoporotic bone loss.

Abstract Hypothalamic obesity (HO) is a rare and serious disease of various origins: tumor, traumatism, radiotherapy, vascular, genetic, or even psychotropic drug use. HO usually begins in childhood with eating disorders and progresses with an aggregate of severe comorbidities. Transition from pediatric to adult health care is a critical period to assure weight stability and a good management of comorbidities. In case of loss to follow-up, there is an increased risk of major weight gain and long-term complications with severe obesity. To minimize this risk, pediatric and adult specialists must work together to pre...

Abstract Deficiency of the 21-hydroxylase enzyme is the most common form of congenital adrenal hyperplasia (CAH), accounting for more than 95% of the cases. With the advent of newborn screening and hormone replacement therapy, most children with CAH survive into adulthood. Adolescents and adults with CAH experience a number of complications, including short stature, obesity, infertility, impaired bone mineral density, and reduced quality of life. Transition from pediatric to adult care and management of long-term complications are challenging for both patients and practitioners. In adulthood, the aims of the medic...

Publication date: Available online 6 June 2018 Source:Best Practice & Research Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism Author(s): Tarik Kirkgoz, Tulay Guran Primary adrenal insufficiency (PAI) is a life-threatening disorder of adrenal cortex which is characterized by deficient biosynthesis of glucocorticoids, with or without deficiency in mineralocorticoids and adrenal androgens. Typical manifestations of primary adrenal insufficiency include hyperpigmentation, hypotension, hypoglycaemia, hyponatremia with or without hyperkalemia that are generally preceded by nonspecific symptoms at the onset. Recessively inherited m...
