Cardiometabolic Effect of Sugar-Sweetened Beverages Reduction in Obese Children

Galhardo Julia , Diamantino Catarina , Alonso Anabela , Lopes Lurdes

Background: The excessive consumption of sucrose, primarily used in sweetened beverages, has been considered an important inducer of cardiometabolic diseases. Besides the association between metabolic syndrome and fructose found in animal models, literature is lacking prospective studies in humans, especially in paediatric ages.Objective and hypotheses: We assessed the effect of sugar-sweetened beverages reduction on markers of metabolic syndrome in obes...

Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia with a CYP21A2 deletion overlapping Tenascin-X gene

Rodrigues Ivo Catarina , Fitas Ana Laura , Madureira Ines , Diamantino Catarina , Gomes Susana , Goncalves Joao , Lopes Lurdes ,

Introduction: Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia (CAH) is a group of genetic diseases characterized by impaired cortisol synthesis. 95% of CAH cases result from mutation in the CYP21A2 gene encoding 21-hydroxilase. TNX-B gene partially overlaps CYP21A2 and encodes a matrix protein called Tenascin-X (TNX). Complete tenascin deficiency causes Enlers-Danlos syndrome (EDS). A variant called CAH-X, has recently been described, resulting from CYP21...

Moscoso Joana , Cirurgião Filipa , Dias Joana , Laura Fitas Ana , Diamantino Catarina , Pina Rosa , Lopes Lurdes

Beckwith-Wiedemann Syndrome (BWS) is an overgrowth disorder, occurring in 1/13,700 births. BWS is usually sporadic, but 15% of cases are familial. Variable phenotype may include overgrowth, macroglossia, abdominal wall defects, neonatal hypoglycemia, lateralized overgrowth and predisposition to embryonal tumors. We describe three male cases of BWS followed at our clinic.Case 1: Born of a gestation complicated by gestational diabetes. Del...

Ten years of growth hormone treatment in children born small for gestational age with persistent short stature- results of a Portuguese multicenter study

Diamantino Catarina , Caetano Francisco , Luísa Leite Ana , Costa Carla , Vieira Paula , Novais Sandrina , Borges Teresa , Pereira Carla

Background: Growth hormone (GH) treatment is indicated for children who are born small for gestational age (SGA) and fail to achieve sufficient catch-up growth during infancy and remain short throughout childhood.Aims: To evaluate the effect of GH treatment in a large, multicentric, Portuguese SGA children cohort and to analyze for correlation between GH treatment response and clinical factors.<str...

Marques Bernardo , Gomes Sonia Madeira , Caetano Joana Serra , Cardoso Rita , Dinis Isabel , Mirante Alice , Fitas Ana Laura , Diamantino Catarina , Limbert Catarina , Pina Rosa , Lopes Lurdes

Introduction: Treatment with recombinant growth hormone (rGH) is safe and has greatly improved the approach of children and adolescents with growth hormone deficiency (GHD) and other growth disorders. Some studies show that most of the height gain associated with GH treatment occurs in prepubertal years. The aim of our study was to evaluate the effect of age at start of the treatment on final height in children with isolated or GHD in a Portuguese cohort.<p class="abstext"...

Associations Between Pituitary Abnormalities and Treatment Response in Children with Growth Hormone Deficiency. First Multicenter Study in Portugal

Diamantino Catarina , Sofia Simões Ana , Borges Catarina , Costa Carla , Pereira Carla , Vieira Paula , Luísa Leite Ana , Cristina Monteiro Ana , Freitas Joana , Martins Sandrina , Teresa Bernardo Maria , Fonseca Marcelo , Mirante Alice

Background/Aims: Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is used to investigate the etiology of growth hormone deficiency (GHD). There is a close relationship between structural changes in the pituitary gland and clinical status.We aimed to investigate the relationship between MRI findings and clinical symptoms and treatment response in children with GHD.Methods: The study was conducted in nine Department...
