Metabolic Parameters and Glucose Homeostasis in Childhood Onset Growth Hormone Deficiency at Time of Initial Evaluation and Retesting

Ahmid M , McMillan M , Ahmed S F , Shaikh M G

Background: It is well known that growth hormone (GH) brings about several effects, involving bone, body composition, lipids and glucose homeostasis. However, the complex interplay between these parameters is rather poorly studied in children with childhood-onset-GH deficiency (CO-GHD).Objective and hypotheses: To investigate lipids, adipokines (leptin- adiponectin- resistin) and glucose homeostasis and their relationship with bone and body composition i...

Cardiovascular Assessment in Turner Syndrome: Current Practice in the United Kingdom

Mason A , Smyth A , Ahmed S F , Wong S C

Background: In 2007, the Turner syndrome (TS) Consensus Study Group developed an international guideline for clinical care of girls and women with TS. Given emerging concerns of long term cardiovascular complications, the consensus recommends that cardiac MRI should be performed when girls are old enough to tolerate the procedure or at the time of transition and to be repeated at least every 5–10 years.Method: We conducted a survey of cardiovascular...

Bone Health and Body Composition in Childhood Onset Growth Hormone Deficiency at Time of Initial Evaluation and Retesting

Ahmid M , Shepherd S , McMillan M , Ahmed S F , Shaikh M G

Background: Childhood onset growth hormone deficiency (CO-GHD) may contribute to low bone mass and alterations of body composition. However, the mechanisms by which CO-GHD effects bone health are not yet clearly defined.Objective and hypotheses: To evaluate musculoskeletal health in CO-GHD subjects at initial evaluation and retesting after final height.Method: A cross-sectional study of assessing bone health and body composition by...

Effects of Recombinant Human GH on Bone Mass and Body Composition in Paediatric Inflammatory Bowel Disease

Altowati M A , Shepherd S , McGrogan P , Russell R K , Ahmed S F , Wong S C

Background: rhGH therapy may improve linear growth in children with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). Poor bone health and abnormal body composition are recognised complications in paediatric IBD.Objective and hypotheses: To investigate the effects of rhGH on bone health and body composition.Method: Sub-analysis of 13 children with IBD (12CD; 1UC) in a randomized controlled trial. Either rhGH (0.067 mg/kg per day) as daily s.c. inj...

Effect of Vitamin D Treatment on Glucose and Insulin Metabolism, and Bone Turnover in Children with Symptomatic Vitamin D Deficiency

El-fakhri Nagla , McMillan Martin , McNeilly Jane , Ahmed S F , McDevitt Helen

Background: There are limited data in paediatric population on the association between vitamin D deficiency/treatment and glucose/insulin metabolism.Objective and hypotheses: This study aimed to investigate the effect of vitamin D therapy on glucose homeostasis, insulin resistance and bone turnover, in children with vitamin D deficiency.Method: 22 children aged 3 months to 10 years (nine male) who were diagnosed with vitamin D defi...

Development and Risk Factors of Thyroid Dysfunction in Patients with Positive TPO Antibodies

Gomez C Nicolas , McNeilly J , Mason A , Ahmed S F , Wong S C , Shaikh G

Background: Autoimmune thyroid disease (AITD) is the most common thyroid disorder in the paediatric age range. However, the development of thyroid dysfunction in biochemically euthyroid children with positive TPOAbs and associated risk factors is unclear.Objective and hypotheses: To evaluate the evolution of children with positive TPOAbs and normal thyroid function and identify predictive factors for the development of thyroid dysfunction.<p class="a...

Children with Coeliac Disease on Gluten Free Diet have Normal Bone Mass, Geometry and Muscle Mass

Mackinder M , Wong S C , Tsiountsioura M , Shepherd S , Buchanan E , Edwards C , Ahmed S F , Gerasimidis K

Objective: To evaluate musculoskeletal development using pQCT in children with coeliac disease (CD) on gluten free diet (GFD) compared with age and gender matched healthy controls.Method: Prospective cross sectional study. 38 children (18 males) with CD on GFD for a duration of 3.6 years (0.6, 12.5) and 38 age and sex matched healthy controls underwent pQCT at 4, 38 and 66% tibial sites. Bloods were collected in CD children only. Results reported as medi...

Depth and Timing of Hypoglycaemia Achieved During Insulin Tolerance Test in Children

Wong S C , Boroujerdi M , McNeilly J , Morris W , Carson C , Mason A , Shaikh G , Ahmed S F

Background: Achieving adequate hypoglycaemia during the insulin tolerance test (ITT) is important but excessive hypoglycaemia is undesirable. We aim to evaluate factor affecting insulin sensitivity and hypoglycaemia during ITT.Patients and method: 106 children (76 males) who had an ITT (Actrapid 0.1 units/kg) performed between 2009–2013 for evaluation of short stature, poor growth or re-assessment after completion of growth following rhGH therapy. P...

An International Delphi Based Study For Developing A Core Outcome Set For Hypospadias Surgery

Leunbach Tina. , Yankovic Francisca , Springer Alexander , Wisniewski Amy , Burgu Berk , Shnorhavorian Margarett , Braga Luis , Ernst Andreas , Lucas-Herald Angela , O'Toole Stuart , Faisal Ahmed S. , F. Rawashdeh Yazan

Background: Heterogeneity in reported outcomes limits the ability to compare results of studies evaluating hypospadias surgery.Objective: To identify a core outcome set (COS), a minimal number of defined outcomes, to be routinely measured and reported in all trials across the age span following hypospadias surgery.Materials and Methods: A study protocol was drafted and the study re...
