Introduction: Women with gestational diabetes (GD) have an increased risk of developing future type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). A reclassification oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT) is currently recomended in the postpartum period. However, most studies report a compliance rate below 50% and as low as 23%.Objectives: We aimed to study predictors of missing postpartum OGTT in women with GD.Materials and Methods: Retrospecti...

When MAX runs in the family

Duarte Diana Borges , Pereira Catarina A , Palma Isabel , Carvalho Rui , Cardoso Helena

Introduction: Recent advance of genetic testing has contributed to the diagnosis of hereditary pheochromocytoma and paraganglioma (PPGL). Germline mutations in MYC associated factor X(MAX) are responsible for 1.1% of these PPGL; the median age at onset is 33 years and no reliable penetrance estimation is available for MAX-carriers. The authors present the case of a synchronous bilateral pheochromocytoma that prompted the discovery of a proband of MAX mutation and three other r...

A dramatic improvement in metabolic parameters and cutaneous manifestations of insulin-resistance in a type 2 diabetic patient with Congenital Generalized Lipodystrophy (Berardinelli-Seip Syndrome) treated with pioglitazone

Chaves Carolina , Moniz Catarina , Pereira Bernardo Dias , Sousa Isabel , Anselmo Joao , Cesar Rui

Background: Berardinelli-Seip Congenital Lipodystrophy (BSCL) is a autosomal recessive disorder with only up to 500 reported cases. It is characterized by generalized absence of fat since birth and severe metabolic derangements such as insulin resistance, hyperglycemia and dyslipidemia. Diabetes mellitus generally develops during the second or third decade of life. This is a rare clinical condition, with worldwide prevalence of 1 in 10 million people and incidence of 1:500.000...

Final height in cancer survivors undergoing treatment with somatotropin

Pereira Catarina de Oliveira , Caetano Joana Serra , Carvalho Alice , Brito Manuel , Cardoso Rita , Dinis Isabel , Mirante Alice

Somatotropin is essential not only for linear growth but also for important metabolic functions. Its deficiency is usually the first and most common endocrinopathy induced by cancer disease and its treatments, mainly cranial irradiation. Although somatotropin replacement therapy is safe and effective in promoting a better linear growth, studies of final height in childhood cancer survivors treated with somatotropin are limited. This study was performed to examine growth outcom...

Bone mineral density evolution following long-term simultaneous pancreas-kidney transplantation in type 1 diabetes

Sílvia Santos Monteiro , Santos Tiago Silva , Duarte Diana Borges , Pereira Catarina , Silva Filipa , Martins La Salete , Dores Jorge

IntroductionSimultaneous pancreas-kidney transplantation (PKT) has a beneficial effect on the evolution of chronic complications in type 1 diabetic (T1D) patients with terminal chronic kidney disease (CKD). However, the CKD-mineral and bone disorder (CKD-MBD) remains a frequent complication. There are a few studies addressing the long-term evolution of bone mineral density (BMD) in these patients.AimTo charac...

The influence of simultaneous pancreas-kidney transplantation on the evolution of diabetic foot lesions and peripheral arterial disease

Introduction: Simultaneous pancreas-kidney transplantation remains the best treatment option in type 1 diabetic patients with chronic kidney failure, providing a euglycemic state associated with an improvement on diabetic chronic complications. However, there are only a few studies addressing the potential ischemic deterioration of peripheral arterial disease, due to blood diverting from the iliac artery to the kidney graft.Aim: Evaluate diabetic foot le...
