Premature Adrenarche is Associated to Precocious Thelarche but not to Precocious Gonadarche or Pubarche in Chilean Adolescents

Pereira Ana , Corvalan Camila , Mericq Veronica

Background: Premature adrenarche (PA) has been associated to increased metabolic risk. Areas of controversy regarding associated co-morbidities are precocious pubarche, PCOS and lower birth weight, which may depend on ethnic background.Objective and hypotheses: To describe the risk of precocious thelarche (PT, <8 years), pubarche (PP, <8 years F, <9 years M) and gonadarche (PG, <9 years) in children with premature adrenarche.<p class=...

High DHEAS (HD) in Girls Determines Earlier Pubertal Maturation and Mild Hyperandrogenism throughout Pubertal Development

Pereira Ana , Merino Paulina , Iniguez German , Corvalan Camila , Mericq Veronica

Background: Premature adrenarche (PA),characterized by high concentrations of DHEAS,has been considered a benign condition until recently,where associations to increased metabolic risk and PCOS have arisen,which may depend on ethnic background and infancy weight gain.Objective and hypotheses: To determine whether PA in girls determines:i)a different timing of pubertal events, and ii)a different pattern of Ovarian morphology/hormones and adrenal hormones....

Pubertal Events, Reproductive and Growth Hormones and Predictive Factors in Healthy Girls with Transient Thelarche.

Soto Julio , Pereira Ana , Busch Alexander , Almstrup Kristian , Corvalan Camila , Juul Anders , Mericq Veronica

Context: Transient thelarche (TT) corresponds to the appearance, regression and subsequent reappearance of the breast bud in girls. Only a single study about its frequency and progression is available (Lindhardt Johansen JCEM 2017).Objective and Hypotheses: To determine whether girls with TT girls (group 1) compared to girls without TT (group 2) show differences in i) timing/sequence of pubertal events ii) pattern of rep...

Premature Adrenarche in Girls at Pubertal Onset is Associated with High Androgens, but Lower AMH Concentrations

Merino Paulina M , Pereira Ana , Iniguez German , Corvalan Camila , Mericq Veronica

Background: Premature adrenarche (PA) has been considered a benign condition. Recently, associations with increase androgen levels and PCOS have arisen.Objective: To determine whether PA in children at pubertal onset (TII) determines a different timing of pubertal events and a different pattern of ovarian and adrenal hormones.Methods: A total of 583 girls from the longitudinal cohort (Growth and Obesity Cohort Study, born 2002) wer...

Premature Adrenarche and Metabolic Risk: Differences by Gender

Pereira Ana , Merino Paulina M. , Iniguez German , Corvalan Camila , Mericq Veronica

Background: Premature adrenarche (PA) has been considered a benign condition. Recently, associations with an increased metabolic risk have arisen. This risk may depend on ethnic background and infancy weight gain, which could be different by gender.Objective and hypotheses: To determine whether PA in children at pubertal onset (TII) determines a higher metabolic profile.Methods: 1190 children (49.9% female) from the longitudinal co...

Pubertal Onset in Boys is Influenced by BMI and Genetic Variation of Fshb and Fshr: A Study in Two Population-Based Cohorts of Different Genetic Ancestry

Busch Alexander S. , Hagen Casper P. , Main Katharina M. , Almstrup Kristian , Pereira Anita , Corvalan Camila , Mericq Veronica , Juul Anders

Background: Age at onset of puberty exhibits a remarkable variation mirroring nutritional, environmental, socioeconomic and genetic factors. While large genome-wide association studies identified more than hundred genetic loci associated with age at menarche in girls, knowledge on loci associated with age at pubertal onset in boys is sparse. FSHB/FSHR genetic variants have been shown to affect pubertal timing in girls and reproductive parameters in men.<p class="a...

Acute Effects of a Training Session on IGF1 and IGFBP3 Concentrations in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Fighters

Filho Hugo Tourinho , Puggina Enrico , Moraes Camila , Oliveira L , Martinelli Jr Carlos

Introduction: The relationship between sports intensity and growth has become a concern in teenagers. Changes in the GH/IGF1 axis have been studied as biomarkers for training intensity in adolescents; however, reports on the effects of physical effort on GH and IGF1 levels are discordant and studies on GH and IGF1 responses in combat sports are scarce.Aim: To investigate the effects of a Jiu-Jitsu training session on serum IGF1 and IGFBP3 concentrations....

Twin infants with salt-wasting: double the trouble

Graneiro Ana , Aguilar Abisad Daniela , Dantas Marina , Gonzalez Aragon Camila , Tarkoff Joshua ,

Introduction: Failure to thrive (FTT) is a common entity encountered by pediatricians. It can be caused by inadequate energy intake or “organic causes” such as inborn errors of metabolism or disorders of the endocrine system. One cause that is rarely seen is a deficiency of aldosterone.Case presentation: A set of 3-month-old monozygotic male twins presented with failure to thrive and dehydration. Initially, they were evaluated ...

Association between the Use of Antenatal Steroids for Lung Maturation and Hypoglycemia in Newborns Between 26 and 34 6/7 Weeks of Gestation

Valencia Gina Marcela Gonzalez , Castaneda Jessica Lorena Gonzalez , Avendano Maria Camila Velandia , Cadena Fabio Camilo Suarez , Fontecha Eliana Rocio Arango , Diaz Andres Felipe Ochoa , Rojas Victor Clemente Medonza

Objective: The aim of this study was to evaluate the difference between the incidence of hypoglycemia in those preterm newborns who were exposed to steroids and those who were not.Methodology: This is a prospective cohort study of preterm infants born between 2017 and 2018 at a gestational age of 26 to 34 6/7 weeks in the Hospital Universitario de Santander- HUS- in Bucaramanga, Colombia.Results: 128 preterm infants were e...

Developmental Regulation of Obestatin and Adropin in Prader-Willi Syndrome and Non-Syndromic Obesity: Associations with Weight, BMI-z, HOMA-IR, and Lipid Profile

Orsso Camila E , Butler Andrew A , Muehlbauer Michael J , Cui Huaxia N , Rubin Daniela A , Pakseresht Mohammadreza , Butler Merlin G , Prado Carla M , Freemark Michael , Haqq Andrea M

Background: The peptides obestatin and adropin are thought to regulate glucose and lipid metabolism, weight gain, and fluid intake in adults. The roles of obestatin and adropin in the regulation of weight and glucose and lipid metabolism in Prader-Willi syndrome (PWS) and non-syndromic pediatric obesity are poorly understood. This study compares the concentrations of obestatin and adropin in infants and children with PWS and age- and BMI-z matched controls, and explores the as...
