Background: Children exposed to gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) in utero have higher risk of development of glucose intolerance and diabetes mellitus.Objective and hypotheses: The study was undertaken to assess the selected carbohydrate parameters in children exposed to gestational diabetes in utero.Method: 50 children exposed to gestational diabetes were compared with 46 control subjects. Anthropometric parameters of a newborn...

Background: Central precocious puberty (CPP) results from activation of the hypothalamic-pituitary-gonadal axis before the age of 8 years in girls and 9 years in boys. The molecular basis of the maturation of this axis is still poorly understood. The MRKN3 gene located in the Prader-Willi syndrome critical region (chromosome 15q11–q13), inhibit factors stimulating pulsative. GnRH secretion. In 2013 inactivating mutations in the MRKN3 gene were discovered...

Background: Severe early-onset obesity (SEOO) in children is more frequently observed in subjects with genetic disorders of which those of leptin pathway can be analyzed biochemically and genetically.Objectives: The aim of the study was to investigate anthropometrics and leptin parameters, specifically searching for bio-inactive leptin, in children with SEOO.Methods: Study cohort includes children ...

Background: It was reported recently that central adrenal insufficiency (CAI) in pediatric patients (pts) with Prader-Willi Syndrome (PWS), presented in up to 60% of them, could be a potential cause of sudden death. Moreover it has been suggested that CAI could be aggravated by rhGH recombinant human growth hormone (rhGH) treatment.Objective: To prevent both over- and undertreatment with hydrocortisone, we assessed the p...

Introduction: Recent studies have revealed the presence of zinc and the expression of zinc transporter (ZnT) family members in most endocrine cell types. Moreover it was demonstrated that the ZnT family plays an important role in the synthesis and secretion of many hormones like insulin. We studied the prevalence of ZnT8 Ab in patients with autoimmune thyroid diseases (AITD).Material and methods: The study was performed in the group consisting of 20 Grav...
