Polycystic ovary syndrome and their relationship with metabolic syndrome in female-to-male transsexuals

Becerra Antonio , Lopez Gilberto Perez , Menacho Miriam , Molina Jose Miguel Rodriguez , Lucio M Jesus , Asenjo Nuria

Objective: To determine the prevalence of polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) and hyperandrogenism and their relationships with metabolic syndrome (MS) parameters in female-to-male transsexuals (FMT).Design and methods: Seventy-seven FMT were assessed clinically and biochemically to hyperandrogenism, before the beginning of the treatment with testosterone. We also assessed cardiovascular risk factors and other parameters of MS.Results...

Prevalence of androgenic deficit in men with metabolic alterations

Roman Miriam Menacho , Fernandez Antonio Becerra , Lopez Gilberto Perez , Vicente Rosa Villar , del Rey Sanchez Jose Manuel

Introduction: The syndrome of late-onset hypogonadism (LOH) is a clinical and biochemical syndrome associated with advancing age male, characterized by typical symptoms and decreased serum concentrations of testosterone, which can affect multiple organ systems and may impair quality of life. The prevalence of LOH syndrome is higher in certain patient groups, obese, diabetic and suffering from erectile dysfunction manifest LOH at higher rates than the general population.<p ...

Concordance study of pathological results of fertility hormones

Roman Miriam Menacho , Fernandez Antonio Becerra , Lopez Gilberto Perez , Vicente Rosa Villar , del Rey Sanchez Jose Manuel

Introduction: During a normal menstrual cycle, serum levels of luteinizing hormone (LH), follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH), estradiol (E2), and progesterone (P4) can vary widely between cycles for the same woman, as well as between different women. Reliable reference values based on the local population are important for correct interpretation of laboratory results.Aims: To evaluate the discrepancy of the results on fertility hormones by two different t...

Papillary thyroid carcinoma metastasis to the parapharyngeal space

Lopez Gilberto Perez , de la Fuente Marta Carrasco , Megias Marta Cano , Buesa Macarena Alpanes , Martin Jesus Gomez , Sepulveda Pilar Zurita

Objective: Describe a case of a patient diagnosed with papillary thyroid carcinoma by a retropharyngeal tumor.Methods: A 46-year-old male was referred from the otorhinolaryngology consult to our department with the post-operative diagnosis of papillary thyroid carcinoma, with 6 months history of upper airway dyspnea and dysphagia to solids. Physical examination: right side adenopathies, not painful on palpation. No goitre. Laryngoscopy: hypertrophy of ri...

Relationship between endothelin-1 levels in diabetics with and without microangiopathy and control subjects

Vicente Maria Rosa Villar , Alameda Carmen , Becerra Antonio , Menacho Miriam , Lopez Gilberto Perez , de Villar Noemi G Perez , Rodriguez Azucena , Cancer Emilia , Canovas Gloria

Aim: To assess ET1 levels in diabetic patients with and without microangiopathy, and compared with normal subjects, nondiabetic, without underlying vascular pathology.Introduction: The pathophysiology of diabetic microangiopathy is complex and many important aspects of it still are not fully understood. Endothelial dysfunction is of major importance in the pathogenesis of atherosclerosis and diabetic angiopathy. ET-1 is one of the most potent vasoconstri...

Serum ferritin and risk of the metabolic syndrome in cross-sex hormone-treated transsexuals

Fernandez Antonio Becerra , Lopez Gilberto Perez , Menacho Miriam , Lucio Perez Maria Jesus , Araque Nuria Asenjo , Rodriguez Molina Jose Miguel , Llopis Agelan Jose Luis

Moderately elevated body iron stores may be associated with several components of the metabolic syndrome (MetSyn). Elevated serum ferritin levels (Fer) independently predicted incident type 2 diabetes in prospective studies in apparently healthy men and women.Aims: To analyze the association between Fer and components of MetSyn in transsexuals before and after 2-year cross-sex treatment (CST).Methods: Before starting the CST in 90 ...

Serum ferritin in female-to-male transsexuals with polycystic ovary syndrome

Lopez Gilberto Perez , Fernandez Antonio Becerra , Menacho Miriam , Perez Maria Jesus Lucio , Araque Nuria Asenjo , Molina Jose Miguel Rodriguez , Agelan Jose Luis Llopis

Elevated serum ferritin levels has been reported in premenopausal women presenting polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) and hyperandrogenism, and thus may be involved in the development of insulin resistance, type 2 diabetes y cardiovascular disease. In female-to-male transsexuals (FMTs) PCOS is frequent and this issue has been little studied.Aims: To study the serum ferritin in FMTs with PCOS and their relations with markers of insulin resistance (IR) and m...
