Hypercortisolism is prevalent in newly diagnosed type 2 diabetes: a prospective study of 384 consecutive patients

Steffensen Charlotte , Dekkers Olaf M , Lyhne Johanne , Poulsen Per L , Rungby Jorgen , Sorensen Henrik T , Jorgensen Jens Otto L

Background: Cross-sectional studies in small and selected populations indicate a relatively high prevalence of incipient and/or subclinical Cushing’s syndrome (CS) in patients with type 2 diabetes (T2D), which could have therapeutic implications.Aim: To estimate the prevalence of CS in a large, unselected cohort of recently diagnosed T2D patients.Methods: A total of 384 consecutive out – patients with T2D diagnosed after ...

Case report: chronic adrenergic stimulation induces brown adipose tissue differentiation in visceral adipose tissue

Sondergaard Esben , Gormsen Lars C , Pedersen Steen B , Christiansen Peer , Nielsen Soren , Poulsen Per L , Jessen Niels

Introduction: The presence of brown adipose tissue (BAT) in humans has recently been demonstrated by histology and positron emission tomography (PET). In previous reports, BAT in adults is primarily confined to the upper chest and neck. Here, we report a case of massive BAT infiltration of the visceral adipose tissue in a patient with catecholamine secreting paraganglioma.Methods: The patient was evaluated with [18F]-FDG PET/CT at three occasi...

Cushing’s syndrome negatively affects socio-economic variables many years before the diagnosis: A nationwide registry-based cohort study

Ebbehoj Andreas , Søndergaard Esben , Jepsen Peter , Matilde Lundsgaard Svane Helene , Madsen Morten , Poulsen Per Løgstrup , Jorgensen Jens Otto

Introduction: Cushing’s syndrome (CS) results from prolonged glucocorticoid excess. Both iatrogenic and endogenous CS cause somatic and neuropsychiatric morbidity that do not fully reverse after biochemical disease control. However, the real-world socio-economic consequences for patients and their families are largely unknown.Aim: To determine the impact of CS on work status, income, education, marital status, parenthood, and depression before and ...

Signs of accelerated carotid atherosclerosis assessed by MRI in newly diagnosed type 2 diabetes

Hoyem Pernille H , Laugesen Esben , Mikkelsen Anders A F S , Christensen Britt , Opstrup Ulla K , Poulsen Per L , Erlandsen Mogens , Kerwin Bill , Thrysoe Samuel , Christiansen Jens S , Kim Won Y , Hansen Troels K

Introduction: Type 2 diabetes is associated with accelerated atherosclerosis, which causes macro-vascular complications such as cerebral infarctions, myocardial infarctions, and peripheral vascular disease. We aimed to investigate whether there are differences in the morphology of atherosclerosis in the carotid arteries assessed by MRI in newly diagnosed type 2 diabetic patients compared to non-diabetic control subjects.Methods: Hundred type 2 diabetic p...
