Background null Wolfram syndrome (WFS) is a rare autosomal recessive genetic disease whose main cause is mutations in the WFS1 and CISD2 genes. Its characteristic clinical manifestations are diabetes insipidus, diabetes mellitus, optic atrophy and deafness. null Methods null In this study, two patients from this particular family underwent complete routine biochemical and ophthalmic tests. Blood, urine, routine stool test, visual acuity (VA) examination, visual field assessment, funduscope, opti...

Abstract Objective: Adult growth hormone deficiency (AGHD) is a rare chronic inflammatory disease caused by damage to the pituitary gland and is accompanied by disorders of multiple metabolic pathways. By examining the correlation between the serum mesencephalic astrocyte-derived neurotrophic factor (MANF) levels of AGHD patients and those of normal controls, we hope to elucidate the close relationship among MANF, lipid metabolism and insulin resistance in AGHD and discuss the potential therapeu...

OBJECTIVE The relationships between body fat distribution, the adipokine adipsin and metabolic risks were assessed in patients with adult growth hormone deficiency (AGHD) before and after growth hormone (GH) treatment. METHODS Sixty newly diagnosed AGHD patients were included in our study, 24 of whom were evaluated after at least one year of GH treatment. Anthropometric parameters, glucolipid metabolism and the adipokine adipsin were measured. Visceral adipose tissue (VAT) and body composition w...

Aim. Adult growth hormone deficiency (AGHD) is associated with an increased risk of fractures. The interactions between various body composition and bone are known to be complex in nature. However, very few studies have examined this crosstalk in AGHD. In this study, we sought to investigate the relationship between various parameters of body composition and bone mineral density (BMD) as well as determine the role of visceral fat in determining the bone mass in patients with AGHD. Methods. We co...

OBJECTIVE: The importance of muscle mass has been emphasized in various studies, and growth hormone (GH) deficiency is tightly associated with lean mass loss. Therefore, we aimed to investigate the prevalence of low lean mass in patients with adult growth hormone deficiency (AGHD) who received or did not receive GH therapy. METHODS: In this retrospective study, we included patients diagnosed with AGHD by using the insulin tolerance test (ITT) in our hospital. Patients without completed follow-up...

Abstract Objective: Adult growth hormone deficiency (AGHD) patients have an increased cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. Adipsin as an adipokine that is significantly correlated with metabolism disease, especially in people with obesity. The objective of our study was to compare AGHD patients with healthy subjects to evaluate whether adipsin levels are closely related to glycolipid metabolism and cardiovascular risks in AGHD patients. Methods: Our study included 88 AGHD patients and 88 age-...

Background Little is known about the relationship between serum uric acid (SUA) and cardio-ankle vascular index (CAVI) in Chinese population. Therefore, we aimed to investigate the gender difference in the association of SUA and CAVI in a southwestern Chinese population.
