Assessment of the Effect of the Diagnosis of Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus in the Nutritional Habits of Unaffected Family Members

Karaiskou Avgi , Triantafyllou Panagiota , Christoforidis Athanasios

Background: Type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM) is a chronic and demanding disease affecting not only the patient’s life but also the whole family’s perspective. Many studies have explored the effect of T1DM on the emotional and social life of the family; however, a small amount of evidence for the dietary habits of the unaffected members of the family currently exists.Objective and hypotheses: To explore the effects that T1DM has on the dietary ha...

Cortisol levels in glucagon stimulation tests in children evaluating for short stature: clinical and laboratorial correlations

Maliachova Olga , Triantafyllou Panagiota , Slavakis Aris , Dimitriadou Meropi , Christoforidis Athanasios

Background: Glucagon stimulation test (GST) is used to assess growth hormone (GH) and cortisol reserves in children being investigated for GH deficiency, as a small percentage of children with idiopathic GH deficiency can also exhibit deficiency in the adrenocorticotrophic hormone (ACTH)-cortisol axis. However, the extent of normal cortisol response after glucagon stimulation and its associations with clinical and laboratory parameters have not been thoroughly...

Celiac Disease Screening Should be Routinely Offered in Pediatric Population with Autoimmune Thyroid Disease

Resta Maria , Triantafyllou Panagiota , Agakidis Charalampos , Maliachova Olga , Christoforidis Athanasios

Background and Hypothesis: Autoimmune thyroid disorders (AITD), including Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis (HT) and Grave’s disease (GD), are known to cluster with other autoimmune disorders (AID). There seem to exist both a pathophysiological basis of immunomodulator genes and epidemiological indications of a higher prevalence of AID including Celiac disease (CeD) in patients with AITD, compared to that in the healthy pediatric population. CeD is asymptomatic in a large prop...

Timing of GH Peak in Provocation Tests is Important in Predicting the Effectiveness of Treatment with rhGH in Prepubertal Children with GHD

Georeli Irene , Triantafyllou Panagiota , Slavakis Aris , Christoforidis Athanasios

Background: Peak GH level during stimulation tests (STs) stands as an important parameter in growth prediction models and recently it was shown that timing of the peak value in glucagon stimulation test (GST) may be an important indicator of growth hormone deficiency (GHD).Objective and hypotheses: To detect a possible relationship between timing of the peak value of GH during STs and the effectiveness of treatment with rhGH in children with idiopathic G...

Thyroid Function in Children Treated with rhGH for GH Deficiency

Triantafyllou Panagiota , Georeli Irene , Dimitriadou Meropi , Maliahova Olga , Daflos Anreas , Christoforidis Athanasios

Background: The relation between thyroid function and treatment with recombinant human GH (rhGH) has been the subject of many studies which indicate a decrease of fT4 levels and a compensatory TSH increase at rhGH therapy onset. On the other hand, we have identified a number of patients with documented primary hypothyroidism (either on treatment with L-thyroxine or not) before the onset of rhGH treatment.Objective and hypotheses...

Transient Generalized Glucocorticoid Hypersensitivity: Clinical Manifestations, Endocrinologic Evaluation, and Transcriptomic Profile: the Potential Role of nf-κb

Background: Transient generalized glucocorticoid hypersensitivity is a rare disorder characterized by increased tissue sensitivity to glucocorticoids and compensatory hypoactivation of the hypothalamic–pituitary–adrenal (HPA) axis. The condition itself and the molecular mechanisms that underlie its pathophysiology have not been elucidated as yet. Adenovirus 36 has been reported to cause obesity in various animal species.Objective and Hypotheses...
