Objective: Our aim was to evaluate whether multiple mild head trauma or repetitive heading of long term soccer playing causes growth hormone deficiency.Patients and methods: 28 retired previously professional male soccer players were investigated. Nine of them had sport related head injuries. Mean age: 48.7 years (range 36–70; S.D.±7.4); mean sport duration (professional and senior activity): 27.4 years (S.D.±...

The metabolic syndrome (MetS) in 2610 GH deficient (GHD) subjects before GH replacement: a KIMS (Pfizer International Metabolic Database) analysis

Verhelst Johan , Mattsson Anders F , Luger Anton , Thunander Maria , Goth Miklos , Koltowska-Haggstrom Maria , Abs Roger

Objective: To identify MetS and non-MetS in subjects with adult-onset GHD before start of GH replacement and to compare prevalence of cardiovascular risk factors.Subjects and methods: MetS was defined (IDF criteria) by the obligatory presence of increased waist circumference (WC) and presence of at least two of following components: hypertension, decreased HDL-cholesterol, increased triglycerides, diabetes mellitus. The complementary group was defined as...

The prevalence of diabetes mellitus in 9776 adult patients with childhood- and adult-onset growth hormone (GH) deficiency before GH replacement: a KIMS analysis

Abs Roger , Luger Anton , Wilton Patrick , Thunander Maria , Verhelst Johan , Goth Miklos , Koltowska-Haggstrom Maria , Mattsson Anders

Background: Untreated GH-deficiency (GHD) in adults has been suggested to be associated with an increased prevalence of type 2 diabetes mellitus (DM). Proposed causative factors are the tendency to overweight and the insulin resistance due to central adiposity.Patients and methods: The KIMS (Pfizer International Metabolic Database) was used to evaluate the prevalence of DM in both childhood-onset (CO; n=1977; 56% males) and in adult-onset (AO; ...
