Background: Multidisciplinary approach to pituitary disease is highly recommended; it requires a close relationship between expert pituitary surgeons and endocrinologists together with several specialists (e.g. neuroradiologists) in order to provide a high-level standard of care. Although there is evidence that neurosurgeons’ expertise is a key element to achieve better outcomes, also endocrinologists’ role is fundamental but it may sometimes encounter real-life barr...

Trunk fat increase is prevented both in patients undergoing long-lasting continuous r-hGH therapy and in those who discontinued r-hGH compared to untreated patients: results from baseline data of the MAGHD study

Monzani Maria Laura , Magnani Elisa , Diazzi Chiara , Pederzoli Simone , Volpi Laura , Rochira Vincenzo

Background: Adult growth hormone (GH) deficiency (AGHD) is related with alterations in body composition, increased abdominal and visceral adiposity, adverse change in lipid and carbohydrate metabolism, and reduction of bone mineral density (BMD).Aim: To compare baseline outcomes concerning body composition and biochemical/hormonal data among adult patients with AGHD referring to a single endocrinological center and grouped according to their history of r...

Importance of sexual function assessment in multidimensional evaluation of AGHD patients: Baseline results from the management of adult growth hormone deficiency (MAGHD) study

Laura Monzani Maria , Pederzoli Simone , Volpi Laura , Magnani Elisa , Diazzi Chiara , Rochira Vincenzo

Background: Patients with adult growth hormone deficiency (AGHD) have impaired health-related quality of life (QoL). While the effects of reduced muscle mass and vitality-loss on QoL have been well characterized in AGHD, the impact of AGHD on sexual function, a recognized factor influencing well-being, has never been deepened.Aim: To investigate the prevalence of sexual dysfunction in AGHD patients referring to a single endocrinological center and groupe...

Patient-reported outcomes (PRO) in adult growth hormone deficiency (aghd) for an improved patients’ management: results from the management of AGHD(MAGHD) study

Monzani Maria Laura , Pederzoli Simone , Bellelli Alessio , Magnani Elisa , Diazzi Chiara , Golinelli Caterina , Pacchioni Marco , Orsini Mirko , Rochira Vincenzo

Background: AGHD is a recognized clinical entity, but symptoms are quite nonspecific; the lack of objective tools able to measure patients’ health status remains the main barrier in clinical monitoring and treatment.Aim: The MAGHD Study aims improving AGHD patients’ management through a Smartphone app (MAGHDApp) and a fit-watch integrated with a software framework able to merge daily data of patients’ well-being and physical activity with ...
