What is the most appropriate cut-off for post-saline aldosterone in saline suppression test after adrenalectomy?

Introduction: Primary aldosteronism (PA) is the most common endocrine cause of hypertension affecting up-to 10% of hypertensives. Saline suppression, a confirmatory test for PA helps avoiding patients undergoing invasive lateralisation procedures due to a false positive aldosterone-to-renin ratio (ARR). The proposed cut-off to exclude PA is post-saline aldosterone suppression to <140 pmol/l. We reviewed our biochemical work-up in order to optimise laboratory assessment.</p...

Background: Liraglutide is a long-acting glucagon-like peptide-1(GLP-1) receptor agonist that promotes weight loss. The minimum adequate/good response to liraglutide (≥5% weight loss at 3 months) is not achievable in all patients. Currently there are no biomarkers to predict good response. Enhanced postprandial glicentin concentration was recently considered as superior to GLP-1 in predicting weight loss following bariatric surgeries.Objective 1) T...
