Towards a European Guideline for the treatment of hyponatremia

Allolio B.

The growing complexity of medical practice has increased the demand for well conceived guidelines. Such guidance is also urgently needed in endocrinology, but difficult, as well-conducted trials are scarce. As a first step towards the systematic development of ’Best Practice in European Endocrinology’ a guideline for diagnosis and treatment of hyponatremia was initiated.Hyponatremia is the most frequent electrolyte disorder and of prognostic si...

Subclinical hypothyroidism

Biondi B.

Subclinical hypothyroidism (SHypo) is characterized by elevated serum TSH and thyroid hormone levels at the lower limit but within their respective reference range.It is necessary to distinguish between patients with mildly increased serum TSH levels (5–9 mU/L) and patients with more severely increased serum TSH levels (10 mU/l or higher). About 75% of all SHypo patients have mild disease.The high prevalence (between 4 and 20%...

The relationship between daytime, nighttime and total heart rate with albumin and protein excretion in newly diagnosed type 2 diabetic patients

Afsar B

Introduction: Autonomic nervous system dysfunction has been widely observed in patients with type 2 diabetes. Twenty-four hour ambulatory heart rate measurements (AHRM) have been found to associate with autonomic dysfunction in patient with type 2 diabetes. Since albumin excretion is also related with autonomic dysfunction; in the current study, we analyzed whether 24-h AHRM were related with 24 h urinary albumin excretion (UAE) and urinary protein excretion (UPE) in newly dia...

The relationship Between Self-Reported Nocturnal Sleep Duration, Daytime Sleepiness and 24-hour urinary Albumin and Protein Excretion in Newly Diagnosed Type 2 Diabetic Patients

Afsar B

Aim: Few studies demonstrated that self-reported nocturnal sleep duration (NSD) were related with urinary protein excretion. However no previous study has specifically addressed the relationship between 24-hour urinary albumin excretion (UAE) and 24-hour urinary protein excretion (UPE) in newly diagnosed type 2 diabetic patients.Methods: All patients underwent history taking, physical examination, blood pressure (BP) measurement, 12 lead electrocardiogra...

The relationship between total testosterone, cognitive function, depressive behavior and sleep quality in chronic renal failure patients not on dialysis

Afsar B.

Purpose: Studies have shown that testosterone levels were associated with cognitive function, depression and sleep quality in general population. However these relationships between testosterone, cognitive function, depressive behavior, and sleep quality in chronic renal failure (CRF) patients not on dialysis were not evaluated before.Methods: All patients underwent history taking, physical examination, blood pressure measurement, routine urine and bioch...

GH deficiency in the transitional age: retesting and reassessment of ninety personal cases

Marianna B.

Transition is defined as the period of the life of a subject ranging from the conclusion of puberty to full adulthood (20–24 y. o.).The management of patients with GH deficiency in this period of life is related to: assessment deficit etiology: idiopathic or organic; dose of the drug; gain of the full somatic development; maturation of the sexual-reproductive; cardio-metabolic risk assessment; educational aims.Purpose of the s...

The risk of fractures and osteonecrosis

Abrahamsen B

Bisphosphonates are effective in the prevention of osteoporotic fractures and have been the mainstay of osteoporosis therapy for almost two decades. Being anti-resorptives, bisphosphonates bring about a gain in bone mass that is due to diminished bone remodelling accompanied by a higher mean age of the bone tissue.The presentation aims to review the evidence linking bisphosphonates to skeletal complications and to discuss the magnitude of the risk of the...
