AbstractPurpose of ReviewThis review summarizes our current knowledge on type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) and glucose metabolism alterations in Prader-Willi syndrome (PWS), the most common syndromic cause of obesity, and serves as a guide for future research and current best practice.Recent FindingsDiabetes occurs in 10 –25% of PWS patients, usually in adulthood. Severe obesity is a significant risk factor for developing of T2DM in PWS. Paradoxically, despite severe obesity, a relative hypoinsulinemia, without the expected insulin resistance, is frequently observed in PWS. The majority of PWS subjects with T2DM a re a...

th Z, Vaszilkó M Abstract Introduction: The potential risk factors of the medication-related osteonecrosis of the jaw remain the subject of research because of the different results of the studies. Aim: In our study, we examined the potential prognostic factors of the medication-related osteonecrosis of the jaw. Method: Patients with medication-related osteonecrosis of the jaw presenting between June 2006 and November 2013 were included in this study. Prognosis was examined, based on stage improvement, healing and the rate of relapse. The minimum follow-up time was 5 years. Statistical analysis: The results...

ConclusionsAge (the older, the worse) and tumor stage (the higher, the worse) were significant influences on overall survival. Patients with HT also had lower BMIs, less diabetes, more type I EC, and fewer recurrences in comparison with the non-HT group. With regard to the PFS, it made no difference whether the patient was receiving HT.

Excess body weight is an established risk factor for breast cancer. Research suggests that’s because too much body fat can elevate levels of sex hormones like estrogen, especially among postmenopausal women. But despite knowing there is a correlation between extra weight and breast cancer, it’s been difficult to study how losing that weight could affect an individual woman’s chance of developing cancer. Now, a new paper published in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute provides encouraging evidence that, for women 50 and older, virtually any amount of sustained weight loss translates to a reductio...

AbstractDuring menopausal transition, various phenotypical and metabolic changes occur, affecting body weight, adipose tissue distribution and energy expenditure as well as insulin secretion and sensitivity. Taken together, these can predispose women to the development of type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). Many women in midlife experience climacteric symptoms, including hot flashes and night sweats. Menopausal hormone therapy (MHT) is then indicated. MHT has a favourable effect on glucose homeostasis in both women without and with T2DM. T2DM was considered in the past as a cardiovascular disease (CVD) equivalen...
