Random Serial Cortisol Levels in Neonates: Does it Reduce Synacthen Testing?

Pye Susannah , Smith Zoe , Amin Rakesh

Background: Diagnosis of adrenal insufficiency in the neonatal period is most accurately diagnosed with a short Synacthen test. Some tertiary endocrinology centres advocate random serial cortisol measurements over a 3-h period; a normal cortisol reading during such a test would negate the need for a Synacthen test.Objective and hypotheses: Our aim is to assess whether serial cortisol level readings accurately identifies neonates with normal adrenal funct...

Pharmacokinetics of Intravenous Glucagon in Children with Hyperinsulinaemic Hypoglycaemia

Shah Pratik , Rahman Sofia , Gilbert Clare , Morgan Kate , Hinchey Louise , Bech Paul , Amin Rakesh , Hussain Khalid

Background: Hyperinsulinaemic hypoglycaemia (HH) is one of the common causes of hypoglycaemia in infants and children. It can cause severe brain injury in children if not treated promptly. Diazoxide is first-line treatment for HH. Glucagon infusion is used in the management of children with HH. However it is unclear what dose of glucagon should be used in children.Objective and hypotheses: To evaluate the efficacy, safety and pharmacokinetics of intraven...

Change in HbA1C predicts future abnormal Oral Glucose Tolerance Tests in children and adolescents with Cystic Fibrosis.

Aftab Sommayya , Ghauri Rooha Ijaz , Drew Samantha , Meek Hannah , Peters Catherine , Amin Rakesh ,

Background: Oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT) is the screening test of choice for Cystic Fibrosis Related Diabetes (CFRD). HbA1C is considered unreliable in diagnosing CFRD because of increased cell turn over in children and adolescents with Cystic Fibrosis (CF).Objective: To determine the validity of HbA1C as a predictive tool for future abnormal OGTT in CF.Material & Methods: Data were colle...

Pancreatic Glucagon Secretion is Severely Impaired and Somatostatin Secretion Unchanged in Patients with Hyperinsulinaemic Hypoglycaemia

Shah Pratik , Rahman Sofia , Gilbert Clare , Morgan Kate , Hinchey Louise , Bech Paul , Amin Rakesh , Hussain Khalid

Background: Hyperinsulinaemic hypoglycaemia (HH) is a common cause of hypoglycaemia in children. Glucagon is an important counter-regulatory hormone and the role of somatostatin is not known in children with HH.Objective and hypotheses: To understand the roles of glucagon and somatostatin in children with HH.Method: Children admitted for management of HH in our hospital were included in the study. Plasma insulin, glucagon and somat...

The SARS-CoV-2 Pandemic Is Associated With Increased Severity Of Presentation Of Childhood Onset Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus: A Multicentre Study Of The First COVID-19 Wave

McGlacken-Byrne Sinead M , Drew Samantha EV , Turner Kelly , Peters Catherine , Amin Rakesh ,

Objective: Children are usually mildly affected by Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus 2 infection (SARS-CoV-2, COVID-19). However, the pandemic has impacted negatively on children with non-COVID-19 diseases. We aimed to determine the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the presentation of newly diagnosed childhood-onset type 1 diabetes.Methods: This was a cross-sectional study conducted over a one-year period. ...

Atypical Features in Patients with Leprechaunism Suggesting a Wide Clinical Spectrum of Disease

Katugampola Harshini , Improda Nicola , Shah Pratik , Gordon Hannah , Amin Rakesh , Peters Catherine J , Semple Robert K , Dattani Mehul T

Background: Donohue syndrome (DS) is the most severe form of insulin-resistance due to autosomal recessive mutations in the insulin receptor gene. Typical features include pre-/postnatal growth impairment, hyperinsulinaemic hyperglycaemia with fasting hypoglycaemia, nephrocalcinosis, recurrent sepsis, little adipose tissue, soft tissue overgrowth, hirsutism, acanthosis nigricans and facial dysmorphism. However, additional comorbidities may be present, affecting prognosis.<...

Recombinant Human IGF1 Treatment in Patients with Insulin Receptor Mutations Resulting in Donohue Syndrome: A 10-Year Experience in a Tertiary Centre

Improda Nicola , Katugampola Harshini , Shah Pratik , Gordon Hannah , Amin Rakesh , Peters Catherine J , Semple Robert K , Dattani Mehul T

Background: Donohue syndrome (DS) is the most severe form of insulin-resistance due to autosomal recessive mutations in the insulin receptor gene. Previous reports demonstrate a role for recombinant human IGF1 (rhIGF1), however optimal treatment strategy remains unclear.Case series: Four males with DS have been treated with bolus rhIGF1 (see table below). They had no IGF1 response on an IGF1 generation test. No long-term side effects of rhIGF1 were repor...

Thyroid Dysfunction in Patients Following Thymus Transplantation in a Tertiary Centre: A 10-Year Experience

Aftab Sommayya , Goff Nicole , Langham Shirley , Amin Rakesh , Hindmarsh Peter , Brain Caroline , Shah Pratik , Spoudeas Helen , Dattani Mehul , Worth Austen , Katugampola Harshini , Peters Catherine

Background: Thymus transplantation is undertaken for conditions associated with severe immunodeficiency. These comprise a number of genetic and syndromic associations including 22q deletion syndrome, CHARGE association, diabetic embryopathy, and other rarer conditions. Autoimmune thyroid dysfunctions (Hashimoto's thyroiditis and Graves' Disease) are described in the literature as the most common autoimmune disease after thymic transplant.<p class="...

Management of Severe, Protracted Hypocalcaemia in Patients Undergoing Thymus Transplantation in a Tertiary Centre: A 10-Year Experience

Goff Nicole , Katugampola Harshini , Monti Elena , Taylor Katherine , Amin Rakesh , Hindmarsh Peter , Peters Catherine , Pratik Shah , Spoudeas Helen , Dattani Mehul , Allgrove Jeremy , Brain Caroline

Background: Thymus transplantation is undertaken for conditions associated with severe immunodeficiency. These comprise a number of genetic and syndromic associations including 22q deletion syndrome, CHARGE association, diabetic embryopathy, and other rarer conditions. These conditions may also be associated with hypoparathyroidism and patients are therefore at risk of severe hypocalcaemia. There are no published guidelines for calcium replacement in these patients during the ...
