The aim of this meta-analysis was to evaluate the effects of low-ratio n-6/n-3 PUFA on blood lipid levels. We searched the PubMed, Embase, and Cochrane Library databases for randomized controlled trials of n-6/n-3 PUFA interventions up to March 2019. The change values were calculated as weighted mean differences (WMDs) by using a random-effect model. Subgroup analysis and meta-regression were used to explore the source of heterogeneity. A total of 30 randomized controlled trials with 1368 partic...

INTRODUCTION Thyroxine is essential for nervous system development. Subclinical hypothyroidism (SCH), also known as mild thyroid failure, is associated with impaired cognitive function in children and mood disorders in adults. Serotonin is also involved in brain development as well as in mood and behavior modulation. The possible interaction between thyroid function tests, serum serotonin concentrations, and emotional intelligence (EI) was studied. METHODS A total of 224 schoolchildren from the ...

The year 2021 marks the 700th anniversary of Dante’s death. Is it appropriate to celebrate this anniversary in a journal of endocrinology? The answer is yes—the motivation for this being found in the giants that Dante, in his Divine Comedy, places around the well that divides Circle 8 from Circle 9 of Hell. The “Supreme Poet” describes one of the giants (Nimrod, a Biblical character) as having a large and elongated face with a body of gargantuan proportions. Such a description immediately calls ...

Purpose null To investigate current practices of specialists in the use of thyroid hormone preparations in Greece as part of an ongoing international survey, namely THESIS-Treatment of Hypothyroidism in Europe by Specialists: an International Survey. null Methods null An electronic link leading to an anonymized questionnaire was sent to all (n = 837) members of the Hellenic Endocrine Society. null Results null In total, 501 respondents participated in the survey, though only part of the question...
Purpose null The role of adipokines in causing inflammation and insulin resistance in normal weight and obese patients is generally well studied. However, there are often conflicting results regarding their levels in type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM) patients and their relationship to micro- and macrovascular disease. We therefore investigated which serum adipokine levels are independently associated with markers of early atherosclerosis and microvascular complications in patients with T1DM. null ...

PURPOSE To evaluate the association between severity of hepatic steatosis/fibrosis with clinical, laboratory, and echocardiographic characteristics, including visceral obesity and type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM)-related micro- and macrovascular complications in diabetic patients with non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). METHODS We studied 60 consecutive NAFLD outpatients with T2DM, recording several demographic and clinical characteristics, trunk and visceral fat, cardiac ultrasound, and m...

Background null Congenital adrenal hyperplasia (CAH) is an autosomal recessive disorder caused by pathogenic variants in seven genes involved in the cortisol and aldosterone biosynthetic pathway. The second most common cause, 11β-hydroxylase deficiency (11βOHD), is attributed to pathogenic variants in the CYP11B1 gene encoding for the enzyme 11β-hydroxylase (11βOH). null Case presentation null A 13-year-old girl was referred to the pediatric endocrinologist due to a syncopal episode. She is the ...

Purpose null Heterozygous loss-of-function mutations in the glucokinase (GCK) gene cause MODY 2, which is characterized by asymptomatic fasting hyperglycemia and does not require insulin treatment. Conversely, homozygous loss-of-function mutations in the same gene give rise to permanent neonatal diabetes mellitus (DM) that appears in the first 6-9 months of life and necessitates lifelong insulin treatment. We aimed to present the genotypic and phenotypic features of a 13-year-old patient diagnos...

BACKGROUND Lipoatrophy (LA), a rare skin complication in patients with type 1 diabetes (T1D), has decreased dramatically over the past decades due to the use of human purified insulin preparations. METHODS We collected data from the records of T1D patients with LA. Types of insulin and insulin regimen, presence of eosinophilia, anti-insulin (IAA), anti-GAD, anti-IA2 autoantibodies, other autoimmune disorders, site of atrophy and its relationship to catheter, HbA1c at LA onset and after resolutio...
