Evening Chronotype and type 2 diabetes: what link in menopause?

Barrea Luigi , Vetrani Claudia , Verde Ludovica , Savastano Silvia , Colao Annamaria , Muscogiuri Giovanna

Chronotype is defined as a trait determining the subject circadian preference in behavioral and biological rhythms relative to external light-dark cycle.The morning chronotype (MC) prefers activities earlier in the day, while the evening chronotype (EC) perform its main activity late in the day. Intermediate chronotype (IC) is in an intermediate position between MC and EC. EC as well as menopause have been associated to an increased risk of cardiometabolic diseases (CMD) in ob...

Chronotype: a tool to screen eating habits in Polycystic Ovary Syndrome?

Verde Ludovica , Barrea Luigi , Vetrani Claudia , Savastano Silvia , Colao Annamaria , Muscogiuri Giovanna

Background: Polycystic Ovary syndrome (PCOS) is the most common endocrine disorders in women of reproductive age whose lifestyle approach is an essential part of the treatment. Recently chronotype, i.e. a trait that determines individual’s circadian preference in behavioral and biological rhythms, has been reported to play a role in determining nutrition preferences and the risk of developing chronic diseases. Thus, the aim of the study was to investigate if chronotype ca...

VLCKD: a real time safety study in obesity

Verde Ludovica , Barrea Luigi , Vetrani Claudia , Marino Francesca , Aprano Sara , Savastano Silvia , Colao Annamaria , Muscogiuri Giovanna

Very Low-Calorie Ketogenic Diet (VLCKD) is currently a promising approach for the treatment of obesity. However, little is known about the side effects since most of the studies reporting them were carried out in normal weight subjects following ketogenic diet for other purposes than obesity. Thus, the aims of the study were: 1) to investigate the safety of VLCKD in subjects with obesity; 2) if VLCKD-related side effects could have an impact on its efficacy. In this prospectiv...

Evening chronotype is associated with hormonal and metabolic disorders in Polycystic Ovary Syndrome

Objective: Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is the most common female endocrine disorder. Recently in the context of obesity, which often coexists with PCOS, it has been highlighted the role of chronotype as risk factor for obesity-related cardiometabolic complications. Given the importance of chronotype categories in the context of metabolic diseases and being PCOS characterized by metabolic derangements, we aimed to investigate the prevalence of chronotype categories in wome...

Evaluation of early predictors of metabolic syndrome in patients with gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (GEP-NET)

Bottiglieri Filomena , Modica Roberta , Barrea Luigi , de Cicco Federica , Minotta Roberto , Muscogiuri Giovanna , Savastano Silvia , Faggiano Antongiulio , Colao Annamaria

Metabolic syndrome and obesity (MetS) are supposed to have a role in cancer but data analysing their association with GEP-NET are lacking. Aim of this study was to explore the association of early predictors of MetS with GEP-NET, usingas tools Fatty Liver Index (FLI), a predictor of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD)and Visceral Adiposity Index (VAI), a gender-specific indicator of adipose dysfunction. A cross-sectional case-control observational study was conducted. VA...

The effect of the dopamine agonist cabergoline on insulin sensitivity in the skeletal muscle: an in vitro study in a mouse cell model demonstrating mediation by serotoninergic receptors

Insulin resistance (IR), characterized by an impairment of target tissues to insulin responsiveness, is the core defect preceding diabetes. Preclinical and clinical data have suggested a role for the dopaminergic system in glucose homeostasis control. The aim of the current study was to investigate the role of the dopamine agonist cabergoline (CAB), displaying high affinity for dopamine type 2 (DR2) receptor and low affinity for serotonin receptors (5-HTRs), in the regulation ...

Introduction: The need of a long-term follow-up in adrenal incidentalomas (AI) is debated and data on cardiovascular events (CVE) are lacking.Methods: In this retrospective study all patients referred to seven Italian Endocrine Centers for AI, without signs of hypercortisolism at baseline and with a ≥5 years follow-up (80.7±30 months, range 60–286), were enrolled. From 171 patients (121 F) aged 59.5±10.2 years (range 25–79) the ...
