How relevant is aldosterone and cortisol co-secretion?

Bhatt Padmanabh Shrikant , Sam Amir H , Salem Victoria , Meeran Karim

Background: Studies suggest that glucocorticoid hypersecretion alongside primary hyperaldosteronism (PA) is common and may contribute to the adverse metabolic phenotype. Adrenal crisis post-surgery for PA is rare.Aim: To determine the prevalence of cortisol co-secretion in PA in patients at Imperial College London NHS Trust, Hammersmith Hospital (a tertiary referral centre for adrenal tumours).Methods: Am...

Serum phosphate predicts temporary hypocalcaemia following thyroidectomy

Background: Temporary hypocalcaemia occurs in up to 40% of patients following a total thyroidectomy. Serum calcium and parathyroid hormone (PTH) measurements are currently used to predict post-thyroidectomy hypocalcaemia. However, immediate access to PTH measurement is expensive and not widely available. Serum phosphate responds rapidly to changes in circulating PTH levels and its measurement is readily available in all hospitals. We evaluated the use of serum phosphate to pre...
