Metabolic Complications in Adrenal Insufficiency.

Metabolic Complications in Adrenal Insufficiency. Front Horm Res. 2018;49:104-113 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 recently patients with primary AI was reported to have less hypertension and lower body mass index than controls. Whether near physiological replacement therapy increase long-term cardiovascular morbidity and mortality in AI is still unclear. PMID: 29894991 [PubMed - in process]

One of the important factors to prevent and treat diabetes is nutritional therapy. Epidemiological and short-term interventional studies emphasise the association between higher fibre intake and improvements in lipid profile as well as fasting and postprandial glycaemic control. Soluble fibres are more effective for management of diabetes, obesity, dyslipidaemia, ...

Saad Missen, Aqsa RashidAbstractThe diabetic retinopathy is the main reason of vision loss in people. Medical experts recognize some clinical, geometrical and haemodynamic features of diabetic retinopathy. These features include the blood vessel area, exudates, microaneurysm, hemorrhages and neovascularization, etc. In Computer Aided Diagnosis (CAD) systems, these features are detected in fundus images using computer vision techniques. In this paper, we review the methods of low, middle and high...

Authors: Kuyucu E, Kara A, Say F, Erdil M, Bülbül AM Abstract As it is mentioned in the literature, rates of complications and revision are higher in the obese compared to non-obese patients, although obesity does not a contraindication for unicompartmental knee arthroplasty and successful outcomes are achieved. However, there is not any study in the literature comparing the outcomes of fixed and mobile unicompartmental prostheses which are applied in the obese patients. Objective of this study was to compare outcomes of our obese patients who we applied fixed or mobile unicompartmental arthroplasty and f...

Background: Glucocorticoid replacement is commonly required to treat secondary adrenal insufficiency after surgical resection of unilateral cortisol-secreting adrenocortical adenomas. Here, we describe a patient with unilateral cortisol-secreting adenomas in which the preoperative use of mifepristone therapy was associated with recovery of the hypothalamic–pituitary–adrenal (HPA) axis, eliminating the need for postoperative glucocorticoid replacement. Case Presentation: A 66-year-old Caucasian man with type 2 diabetes mellitus, hyperlipidemia, hypertension, and obesity was hospitalized for Fournier’s gan...
