Birth weight, thyroid function, calcitonin levels and growth in children with congenital hypothyroidism

Ray N , Ahmed M L , Shine B , James T , Taj N , Ryan F J

Children with congenital hypothyroidism (CH) due to anatomical defects (AD) have different thyroid hormone levels at presentation from those with dyshormonogenesis (DH). We set out to explore these differences at initial presentation and at follow up. We also compared calcitonin levels and growth in these subjects with healthy controls. Data for the CH children were collected from hospital notes for birth weight, gestation, sex, initial laboratory thyroid function, starting do...

Multiple neoplasms in acromegaly

Altaf Q , Ashawesh K , Murthy N P N , Shad A , Randeva H

Introduction: It has been reported that patients with acromegaly have an increased risk of developing several types of cancers, including breast and thyroid. However, co-existence of thyroid and breast acncers in acromegaly is very rare. We describe a rare case of acromegaly associated with primary thyroid and breast cancers.Case: A 63-year-old lady who presented to our endocrine clinic with complaints of increase in the size of her hands, feet, lips and...

Thyroid abnormalities in pegylated interferon treated hepatitis C patients

Thaware P , Black N , Callender M , McDougall N , Patterson K , Stewart I , Courtney H

Interferon therapy for chronic hepatitis C infection has been associated with thyroid abnormalities. We sought to characterise the incidence of this in a cohort of treated hepatitis C patients receiving weekly pegylated interferon therapy in a tertiary Hepatology unit. Patients were scheduled to receive 24 or 48 weeks treatment with monthly thyroid function tests (TFTs). Data was collected from electronic treatment records of 154 consecutive patients and analysed by a single i...

The impact of family history of type 2 diabetes mellitus on insulin sensitivity in lean subjects with polycystic ovary syndrome

Bozkirli Emre , Ertorer M Eda , Bakiner Okan , Anaforoglu Inan , Tutuncu N Bascil , Demirag N Guvener

Objective: Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a common endocrine disorder, characterized by hyperandrogenism and chronic anovulation. Hyperinsulinemia and insulin resistance are well-documented features of the disease. In obese PCOS patients, family history of type 2 diabetes mellitus (FH-DM) is shown to be related with a decrease in insulin sensitivity, however not much is known about lean PCOS cases. The aim of this study was to determine the relationship between FH-DM and ...

The low dose dexamethasone suppression test with CRH is not reliable following pituitary surgery

Abdulali A , Banerjee A , Martin N , Dhillo W , Todd J , Mendoza N , Meeran K

The definition of early cure post transphenoidal surgery (TSS) for Cushing’s disease continues to be debated. The low dose dexamethasone suppression test with corticotrophin releasing hormone (LDDST-CRH) is a test for diagnosis of Cushing’s; however it has not been validated in early post TSS to determine remission. The aim of this study was to determine whether the combined LDDST-CRH test could be used in post TSS patients.The combined LDDST-C...
