Introduction: Diabetes Mellitus (DM) is 2–4 times more common in Turner Syndrome (TS) than karyotype normal females. Diagnosis of DM in TS is usually based on age of presentation and insulin dependency without regard for DM- autoimmunity.

Here we present preliminary data on DM characterisation in TS.</p...

Risk of bone fracture is not increased in women with TS compared to women with ovarian failure

Women with Turners Syndrome (TS) have been shown to have reduced bone mineral density (BMD) but there is uncertainty about how this relates to fracture risk. The little data that does exist is conflicting, with one case series finding no difference compared to controls and one survey suggesting an increased risk of fracture particularly of the forearm. Proposed mechanisms for reduced BMD include short stature, oestrogen deficiency and bone dysplasia. In addition, fracture risk...

Fertility outcomes in women with hypopituitarism compared to women with hypogonadotrophic hypogonadism in a single UK centre

Attard Carol Cardona , O’Donovan Oliver , Nair Sasha , Puri Davina , Talaulikar Vikram S , Davies Melanie C , Conway Gerard S

ObjectivePrevious studies have documented poor fertility results in women with hypopituitarism (HP) both in terms of pregnancy rates and outcomes. We aimed to assess ovulation induction (OI) and pregnancy outcomes in women with HP compared to women with hypogonadotrophic hypogonadism (HH) treated at University College London Hospitals.DesignA retrospective study.Patients<p class="ab...
