Moreno Telma , Ribeiro Sara , Varela Ana , Freitas Paula , Carvalho Davide

Diffuse idiopathic pulmonary neuroendocrine cell hyperplasia (DIPNECH) is a relatively recent and rare disease, frequently misdiagnosed. It is characterized as a generalized proliferation of pulmonary neuroendocrine cells and is recognized as a precursor lesion for pulmonary neuroendocrine tumors, although the risk of progression to malignancy is considered low. Here we report a patient with ectopic ACTH-dependent Cushing’s syndrome due to metastatic lung carcinoid tumors...

Ribeiro Sara , Lima Bruno A , Goncalves Juliana , Moreno Telma , Ferreira Helena Urbano , Pedro Jorge , Varela Ana , Carvalho Davide , Freitas Paula

Introduction: The anatomical and physiological changes induced by bariatric surgery (BS) can significantly impact the absorption and pharmacokinetics of orally administered medication. In particular, levothyroxine (LT4) dosage, given its dependence on patient’s weight and gastric pH for optimal absorption, is expected to change following BS. However, the literature is not unanimous and there is a void of longer-term studies. We aimed to compare LT4 dosage 4 years followin...

Background: Bariatric surgery leads to weight loss and to cardiometabolic risk improvement. Although prediabetes remission after bariatric surgery is biologically plausible, data on this topic is scarce.Aim: We aimed to access pre-diabetes remission rate and clinical predictors of remission in a 4 year follow up period.Methods: Observational longitudinal study including patients with morbid obesity and prediabetes submitted to bari...
