Is there any difference in acromegaly and other chronic disease in quality of life and psychiatric morbidity?

CONCLUSIONS: The psychiatric morbidity, mainly anxiety and insomnia, occurs in 50% of patients with acromegaly. However, the psychological wellbeing and mood seem to be related to other factor such as the acceptance of the illness. Thus, concerning the diagnosis, treatment and monitoring of acromegaly, an interdisciplinary approach, taking into account psychological and psychiatric consultation, is needed.

Recently my book was reviewed in the journalFat Studies.It is an interesting experience to read how someone else interprets what I wrote, and by extension, my life. The review is positive and I am grateful for it. But there was something at the very end that gave me pause and has had me thinking for a couple of weeks now.In the book I wrote:"For all the work I have done to come to terms with and embrace my body, for all that I have embraced fat acceptance and eschewed dieting and body loathing, there remains a pocket of shame about my body that gets reawakened every summer – I have very fat upper arms and though...

There are big dreams we want to tackle. But we can’t do it without this basic need addressed. Yet, many of us are lacking this essential ingredient. Sleep. How much have you gotten lately? A psychiatrist I know told me his clients come to him struggling with insomnia. “They use their iPad, or smart devices and expect to go straight to sleep before bed,” he said. But we can’t simply wind down immediately following a captivating video or the news. We need a routine just like we give our kids a bedtime routine. We want you to read our posts on how to gain joy, and understanding about the things you&rsq...

Abstract Socioeconomic disadvantage (SED) experienced in early life is linked to a range of risk behaviors and diseases. Neuroimaging research indicates that this association is mediated by functional changes in corticostriatal reward systems that modulate goal‐directed behavior, reward evaluation, and affective processing. Existing research has focused largely on adults and within‐household measures as an index of SED, despite evidence that broader community‐level SED (e.g., neighborhood poverty levels) has significant and sometimes distinct effects on development and health outcomes. Here, we test effects of both h...

Nail diseases in children do not account for a significant proportion of pediatric consultations, and most of the time the nails are not observed by the clinician, overlooking their importance. Specific examination of the nails is neglected, while localization to the nails could be an initial sign of a syndrome or a systemic disorder. Nail diseases in the pediatric population differ from those in adults in terms of diagnostic approach and management; some of them even are manifested mainly or exclusively in children. Pediatric patients with underlying systemic disorders are more likely to manifest acquired disorders of the...
