Background: Prader Willi Syndrome (PWS) patients under treatment with growth hormone (GH) have a better body composition and cognitive performance than untreated patients. The 2013 guideline recommended to start this treatment as soon as possible, for that reason 14 toddlers have been included in our center. Classically a 25% decrease in the caloric intake of PWS patients has been recommended to avoid obesity. However, from clinical practice observation, w...

Introduction: Growth hormone (GH) treatment was approved in 2000 for patients with Prader-Willi syndrome (PWS). The main reason for its use was the improvement in body composition. As a result of 2 fatal episodes, it was decided to initiate it from 2 years of age arbitrarily. Average age of real start: 4-6years. GH per se is not a risk factor for mortality in PWS. The 2013 guideline recommends to star it as soon as possible, preferably under 2 years of age, when obesity is est...

Background: The main cause of secondary adrenal insufficiency (SAI) in children is prolonged treatment with exogenous corticosteroids. plasma cortisol (PC) levels after administration of ACTH is the most used indicator of adrenal function in clinical practice. However, salivary cortisol (SC) levels is emerging as an alternative technique in the diagnosis of adrenal pathology, especially useful in the paediatric population because it is a simple noninvasive test.<p class="a...

Background: Cystic fibrosis-related diabetes (CFRD) and glucose abnormalities have a negative impact on pulmonary function and survival in cystic fibrosis (CF) patients. Oral glucose tolerance test (OGGT) is the screening test of choice for CFRD, although undetected high glucose levels can be missed with this test. The use of a continuous intersticial fluid glucose monitoring system (CGM) can be useful in these patients.Objective and hypotheses: To deter...

Triponderal mass index for the categorisation of childhood obesity on the basis of 58.364 observations of 7.792 patients

Corripio Raquel , Alder Lorna , Perez Jacobo , Sanchez-Garvin Dunia , Rivera Josefa ,

Introduction: childhood obesity constitutes a relevant problem of public health. Body mass index (BMI) is the most used anthropometric parameter for its definition: >2 z-score deviation (SD) according to age and sex for reference charts. Recent studies have proposed triponderal mass index (TMI) to identify metabolic risk by obesity. TMI presents the advantage to be a constant value simplifying the calculations.Aims: determine the use...

Introduction: Turner syndrome (TS) is a genetic condition with different phenotypic expressions depending on karyotype. Due to genetic prenatal testing, its prevalence is getting lower. The objective was to analyze the presence of different comorbidities associated with TS according to the karyotype and evaluate if there is follow-up in adulthood.Methods: Descriptive retrospective study including all the patients genetic...
