Menstrual cycle abnormalities as distinctive sign of type 1 diabetes mellitus: results from a meta-analysis

Corleto Rossella , Greco Carla , Cacciani Marta , Spaggiari Giorgia , Simoni Manuela , Santi Daniele

Background: Type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM) management profoundly changed across years, with increasing emphasis on stringent glycaemic control. While it is well demonstrated that the progressive improvement of glycaemic control allows a tighter command of diabetes-related complications, the positive implications thereof on reproductive functions are still unclear. Indeed, it is well known that oligomenorrhea and amenorrhea are more frequently detected in young women with T1DM...

Retrospective observational study of Italian patients with diabetes mellitus in Covid-19 era: a big data approach

Greco Carla , Pirotti Tommaso , Brigante Giulia , Filippini Tommaso , Pacchioni Chiara , Trenti Tommaso , Simoni Manuela , Santi Daniele

Introduction: The prevalence of diabetes mellitus (DM) in patients with coronavirus disease (COVID)-19 varies widely, depending on population characteristics, country, age and disease severity. Moreover, pre-existing DM seems to double the risk of both critical COVID-19 and mortality.Aim: To evaluate incidence and mortality risk of COVID-19 in a large diabetic population in Northern Italy.Methods: A retrospective, observational, bi...

Early diagnosis of medullary thyroid cancer in case of low serum calcitonin: Role of calcitonin measurement in fine-needle aspiration washout fluid

Greco Carla , Madeo Bruno , Rochira Vincenzo , Cristina De Santis Maria , Brigante Giulia

Background: Screening serum calcitonin (sCT) measurement in patients with thyroid nodules is still debated. Moreover, sCt cutoffs for medullary thyroid carcinoma (MTC) are not univocally defined. Also, sensitivity of cytology by fine needle aspiration biopsy (FNAb) has been demonstrated to detect approximately half of MTCs. Ct measurement in fine-needle aspiration washout fluid (Ct-FNAb) has high sensitivity and specificity and is helpful in case of non-diagnostic cytology&#18...

Sarcopenia, low bone mineral density and hidden obesity in young adult Men Living with HIV (MLWH): prevalence and relationship with sex steroids

De Vincentis Sara , Decaroli Maria Chiara , Greco Carla , Diazzi Chiara , Fanelli Flaminia , Mezzullo Marco , Pagotto Uberto , Guaraldi Giovanni , Rochira Vincenzo

Background: HIV is associated with decreased bone mineral density (BMD) and decreased muscle mass. Osteoporosis and sarcopenia often co-exist and their onset is multifactorial. Sex steroids play a key role in the homeostasis of bone health and body composition in HIV-uninfected men, but data in MLWH are scanty.Aim: To investigate the frequency of low BMD and sarcopenia and their relationship with gonadal function in MLWH younger than 50.<p class="abs...

Long-term trajectories of bone metabolism parameters and bone mineral density (BMD) in obese patients treated with metabolic surgery: a real-world, retrospective study

Greco Carla , Passerini Francesca , Coluccia Silvia , Teglio Marta , Bondi Mario , Mecheri Fouzia , Trapani Vincenzo , Volpe Alessandro , Toschi Patrizia , Madeo Bruno , Simoni Manuela , Rochira Vincenzo , Santi Daniele

Background and Aim: Potential adverse effects of metabolic surgery on skeletal integrity remains an important concern. Bone loss is common after surgery due to multiple factors including vitamin D deficiency, altered calcium metabolism, mechanical load reduction and hormonal pattern changes. It is still not clear if the effects on bone health and calcium homeostasis vary according to each surgical technique. Further, long-term data of different surgical approaches are poor. Th...
