Introduction: The metabolically healthy obese phenotype (MHOF) defines obese patients who have preserved insulin sensitivity and who do not have metabolic complications: lower risk of cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes in adulthood. Recent studies indicate that TMI (kg/m3) estimates the percentage of body fat more accurately than the BMI and it has been proposed to substitute the use of the BMI z-score values by those of the TMI. TMI values ...

Diagnostic accuracy of Tri-Ponderal mass index (kg/m3) for identifying glucose intolerance in obese children and adolescents.

Arciniegas Larry , Mogas Eduard , Tomasini Rosangela , Fabregas Ana , Clemente Maria , Yeste Diego ,

Introduction: The identification of obese patients with increased susceptibility and risk for glucose intolerance and type 2 diabetes requires an oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT). Reference values for Body mass index (BMI) and Tri-Ponderal mass index (TMI) according to age and sex of healthy children in Spain without malnutrition or obesity have recently been published (*). TMI values remain very uniform in both boys and girls from the age of 8 to 18 years, ...

Introduction: Differential diagnosis of partial central diabetes insipidus (PCDI) and primary polydipsia (PP) can be challenging. Copeptin is the C-terminal segment of the vasopressin precursor peptide that represents a novel and stable biomarker. Arginine infusion produces a nonosmotic stimulus that causes an increase in copeptin concentrations in healthy subjects. Arginine-stimulated copeptin concentrations have been used to differentiate between patients wi...

Introduction: Subclinical hypothyroidism (SH) is a biochemical condition characterized by serum levels of TSH above the reference range upper limit (4,5╬╝UI/mL), with normal concentrations of thyroid hormones. In cases of non-autoimmune subclinical hypothyroidism (NASHT), genetic defects have been described and can determine disorders in the biosynthesis process of thyroid hormones, such as heterozygous mutations in the TSH receptor gene (TSHR) and ...
