Vicente Almudena , Olivar Monica , Cortes Claudia , Martinez Ana , Sastre Julia , Pena Virginia , Canovas Barbara , Lopez Jose

Background: Optimal glucose management in older people is currently unclear. Recent guidelines recommend avoiding tight glycemic targets in elderly patients with comorbidities because intensive control is unlikely to achieve benefit and they are at higher risk of hypoglycaemia.Objective: To estimate the prevalence of potential overtreatment in older adults with diabetes mellitus and comorbidities.Design: Cross-sectional study.<...

Background: Poorer control of risk factors for cardiovascular disease (cvd) has been reported in diabetic women compared with men.Objective: To investigate whether control of diabetes and risk factors for cvd differ between sexes in a cohort of diabetic patients monitored at an outpatient endocrinology clinic from 2004 till 2014.Design: Observational, retrospective cohort study.Patients and methods: A cohort ...

Background: Pituitary adenomas (PAs) in the elderly, defined as people older than 65 years, represent less than 10% of all PAs. Because of increasing life expectancy and improving health care, diagnosis PAs in this age group is increasing with time. Age-related changes and associated diseases may significantly modify the clinical presentation in these patients, delaying the diagnosis of PAs.Objective: To analyse the clinical features of PAs in elderly pa...

Introduction and objective: Prophylactic central lymph node dissection (CLND) in patients with suspected papillary thyroid cancer (PTC) without evident lymph node metastasis (LNM), remains debatable. We propose to evaluate whether BRAF V600E mutation presence, could help to identify patients at risk for LMN.Methods: Retrospective study of patients with diagnosis of PTC, who underwent total thyroidectomy during 2002 and 2013 (n: 256) in our hospi...
