In order to reach the World Health Organization goal of hepatitis C virus (HCV) elimination, Australia has already expanded the role of primary care with an attempt to prioritise those with advanced HCV-induced liver disease, because they are at the highest risk of liver-related morbidity and mortality. However, as advanced liver disease often remains undetected, and its prevalence in primary care management is unknown, Bloom et al. were interested to evaluate liver stiffness measurement (LSM) as a screening tool to detect individuals with advanced liver disease and predict liver-related events in a prospective cohort of p...

This finding may reflect an ongoing process of metabolic changes in children born after a GDM pregnancy.Horm Res Paediatr

Publication date: Available online 15 August 2018Source: SteroidsAuthor(s): Julius Fink, Masahito Matsumoto, Yoshifumi TamuraAbstractSedentary lifestyle and over-nutrition are the main causes of obesity and type 2 diabetes (T2D). However, the same causes are major triggers of hypogonadism. Many T2D patients show low testosterone levels while hypogonadal men seem to be prone to become diabetic. Testosterone plays a major role in the regulation of muscle mass, adipose tissue, inflammation and insulin sensitivity and is therefore indirectly regulating several metabolic pathways, while T2D is commonly triggered by insulin resi...
