de Lourdes Souza E Silva Maria , Rodrigues Jamille , Carvalho Minna

Introduction: Hypovitaminosis D is a biochemical change with high prevalence among the population, especially in obese patients. Its function more known relates to bones metabolism, although recently, many functions have been described.Methods: A descriptive cross-sectional study, which included women over 18 years old with BMI equal or superior of 25 kg/m2. Anthropometric measurements were obtained: weight, height, BMI, waist circumference, h...

Ferreira Helena Urbano , Goncalves Juliana , Belo Sandra , Alves Goncalo , Silva Maria Luis , Carvalho Davide , Freitas Paula

Introduction: In patients with ACTH-dependent Cushing Syndrome, differentiating between pituitary and ectopic sources can be challenging. Noninvasive testing can be performed, but bilateral inferior petrosal sinus sampling (BIPSS) remains the gold standard. In the last years however, novel imaging modalities, namely 3T-MRI with 3-dimensional spoiled gradient-echo sequence and 68Ga-tagged CRH combined with positron emission tomography, have been proposed as alternatives.<p ...

Growth hormone treatment in SGA children leads to worsening of insulin resistance parameters without beneficial effects on lipid profile – a 3-year retrospective study

Silva Maria , Sergio Neves Joao , Costa Carla , Santos Silva Rita , Ferreira Sofia , Carvalho Davide , Castro-Correia Cintia

Background: Children who were born small for gestational age (SGA) and who do not have adequate catch-up growth until 4 years old have indication for treatment with recombinant human growth hormone (rhGH). The metabolic consequences of this treatment are relatively unknown. Objective: To evaluate the effect of rhGH treatment on insulin sensitivity and lipid profile.Materials and methods: A retrospective observational study of child...

This paper aims to describe the followed population in the consultation, through a retrospective study in a hospital unit. This retrospective study was carried out during February 2020 to February 2022, and analyses the clinical processes of the patients that were followed in this consultation, and later analysing the data using Microsoft Excel® Over these two years, 395 patients were observed. These patients age average 61 years old, ranging from 17 to 93 years of age. M...

Magnesium supplementation and higher magnesium levels in T2DM patients are associated with better glycemic control and higher rates of total and partial remission post-bariatric surgery

Silva Maria , Mendonça Fernando , João Fonseca Maria , João Ferreira Maria , Salazar Daniela , Pedro Jorge , Guerreiro Vanessa , Sergio Neves João , Lau Eva , Belo Sandra , Varela Ana , Freitas Paula , Carvalho Davide

Introduction: Magnesium (Mg) is an essential mineral for human health. Chronic Mg2+ deficiency and low Mg2+ dietary intake have been associated with increased risk of T2DM. Despite the increased risk of T2DM associated with Mg2+ deficiency; T2DM is often accompanied by hypomagnesemia, especially in patients with poorly controlled glycemic profiles.Bariatric surgery remains the most effective long-term therapy for the management of patients wi...

Bariatric surgery impact on cardiovascular risk factors: Is age a factor to consider?

Mendonça Fernando , Silva Maria , João Ferreira Maria , Salazar Daniela , Guerreiro Vanessa , Pedro Jorge , Sergio Neves Joao , Viana Sara , Belo Sandra , Varela Ana , Freitas Paula , Carvalho Davide

Introduction: Despite the abundance of data addressing the influence of patient’s age on surgery-related complications, its impact on several cardiovascular risk factors following bariatric surgery has been overlooked.Methods: Retrospective unicentric study of 1728 obese patients who underwent bariatric surgery between January/2010 and June/2015. Patients were divided in three groups, according to their age at surgery: <40 (n = 751...

Borges-Canha Marta , Neves Joao Sergio , Silva Maria , Mendonca Fernando , Moreno Telma , Ribeiro Sara , Vale Catarina , Goncalves Juliana , Ferreira Helena Urbano , Santos Sara , Calheiros Raquel , Meira Ines , Menino Joao , Guerreiro Vanessa , Pedro Jorge , Varela Ana , Souto Selma , Lima da Costa Eduardo , Freitas Paula , Carvalho Davide , Group CRIO

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...
