Jung Haewoon , Ah Lee Young , Lee Hye Jin , Lim Youn-Hee , Hong Yun-Chul , Shin Choong Ho , Yang Sei Won

Background: Interleukin-6 (IL-6) is a proinflammatory cytokine associated with obesity, insulin resistance, hypertension, and atherosclerosis in adulthood. Few studies have been conducted in healthy young children. We aimed to investigate whether IL-6 levels are associated with cardiometabolic risk factors in healthy 4-year-old children.Methods: From a prospective cohort study named Environment and Development of Children (EDC) cohort, a total of 421 sin...

Introduction: Adrenarche refers to the increase in adrenal androgen synthesis. However, process of adrenal androgen production in early childhood remains to be elucidated. The aim of this study was to evaluate changes in adrenal androgen levels and steroidogenic enzyme activities associated with adrenarche using a prospective cohort.Methods: A total of 229 children (124 boys, 52.4%), who had participated in the Envir...

Serum Uric Acid Level and Its Association with Metabolic Syndrome in Korean Adolescents

Jung So Yoon , Lee Young Ah , Kim Jae Hyun , Lee Seong Yong , Kim Se Young , Shin Choong Ho , Yang Sei Won

Background: Elevated serum uric acid (UA) levels are associated with metabolic syndrome (MS), cardiometabolic risk factors (CMRFs) and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) in adults. However, little is known about usefulness of UA to predict MS in adolescents. As the prevalence of obesity among pediatric population has been increasing, it is important to know the factors associated with the CMRFs to prevent future development of diabetes and cardiovascular disease.<p ...

Subclinical Hypothyroidism, Thyroid Nodule or Cyst in Prepubertal Children: How Many Children were Diagnosed at Age 6?

Lee Young Ah , Cho Sun Wook , Lim Youn-Hee , Kim Johanna Inhyang , Kim Bung-Nyun , Hong Yun-Chul , Park Young Joo , Shin Choong Ho , Yang Sei Won

Purpose: We investigated the prevalence of subclinical hypothyroidism (SCH) and its risk factors in prepubertal children at age 6. We also evaluated the prevalence of thyroid nodule or cyst and its relationship with SCH in prepubertal children.Methods: From the Environment and Development of Children (EDC) cohort study, 458 prepubertal children (243 boys, mean 5.8 years) who visited at age 6 were included in this study. Serum concentrations of free thyro...

A Study of Arterial Stiffness in Turner Syndrome Patients Using Cardio-Ankle Vascular Index

Jung Hae Woon , Kim Hwa Young , Lee Gyung Min , Kim So Youn , Jeong Kyung A , Choi Keun Hee , Lee Jieun , Lee Young Ah , Shin Choong Ho , Yang Sei Won

Background: A large proportion of the increased mortality in Turner syndrome (TS) is related to cardiovascular complications. Increased arterial stiffness may be an important predictor related to cardiovascular complications. A novel method of evaluating arterial stiffness, relatively independent of changes in blood pressure (BP), is the cardio-ankle vascular index (CAVI).Objective and hypotheses: The aim of this study was to compare arterial stiffness u...

Autonomic Nervous System Function Assessed by Heart Rate Variability in Children and Adolescents with Long Term Follow up of Craniopharyngioma

Jung Hae Woon , Kim Hwa Young , Lee Gyung Min , Kim So Youn , Jeong Kyung A , Choi Keun Hee , Lee Jieun , Lee Young Ah , Shin Choong Ho , Yang Sei Won

Background: Obesity is a well-recognized complication of craniopharyngioma. Increased hypothalamic involvement (HI) by the tumour and accordant treatment has been associated with greater obesity. Changes in hypothalamic control of the autonomic nervous system (ANS) have been implicated in the development of hypothalamic obesity however, long term changes in the ANS have not been assessed.Objective and hypotheses: We aimed to evaluate ANS activity using h...
