Optimising Nocturnal Glucose Control in Children with T1D: Therapeutic Implications

Danne Thomas

Background: Nocturnal hypoglycemia is not regularly predictable on the basis of a bedtime BG level and can only be confirmed by BG tests at regular intervals during the night or continuous glucose monitoring (CGM).Objective and hypotheses: A bedtime snack containing carbohydrate as well as fat and protein may be useful in preventing nocturnal hypoglycemia, but this should not be at the expense of high overnight BG levels. In many individuals, a lowering ...

Toenne Moritz , Datz Nicolin , Heger Sabine , Hartmann Rainhard , Danne Thomas , Kuznik Gerd , Neuhaus Burkhard , Kordonouri Olga

Aim: To examine the prevalence of endocrine abnormalities and outcome in children and adolescents with Anorexia nervosa (AN).Methods: The study cohort consisted of 181 patients (age 14.6±1.9 years; 160 girls, 21 boys) with AN (n=137), atypical AN (n=6) and other eating disorders except of Bulimia (n=38) who were hospitalized between Jan 2010 and Feb 2013. Somatometric [body-mass-index (BMI), BMI-SDS] and endocrine parameters were a...

Edward , Ahmed S.Faisal

Background: EuRRECa (European Registries for Rare Endocrine Conditions) is a new project incorporating the development of a core endocrine registry and the development of an e-reporting programme for rare endocrine conditions (e-REC) that are covered within Endo-ERN ( 24 Endo-ERN centres within 12 countries participated in a pilot phase of e-REC...

Background: Registries are of key importance for a centre of expertise. Endo-ERN consists of 71 reference centres (RCs) that cover several groups of rare endocrine conditions within 8 themes ( It is unclear if awareness, participation and availability of registries is uniform for all conditions within Endo-ERN.Objective: To determine the extent of engagement in registries of Endo-ERN members.<p cl...

Introduction: Following the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic in early spring 2020, there was a need to identify the burden of this infection on people with rare endocrine conditions. The European Registries For Rare Endocrine Conditions (EuRRECa) was launched in 2018 in collaboration with Endo-ERN, ESPE and ESE to support the needs of the wider endocrine community. The project consists of an e-reporting (e-REC) platform that allows monthly reporting of new clini...

Background: We have recently reported a BMI-SDS increase in girls with Turner syndrome (TS) treated with growth hormone (GH) (1).Objective and hypothesis: We hypothesise that puberty induction in TS is associated with weight gain.Method: We analysed the weight changes (BMI-SDS) of 888 girls with TS in the Pfizer International Growth Database (KIGS). Overweight was defined by a BMI >90th percentile and obesity by a BMI >97th...

Innovative Therapies in Bone and Mineral Metabolism: Anti FGF23 in X-linked Hypophosphatemia

Carpenter Thomas

Background: Hypophosphatemia due to excess urinary phosphate losses and rachitic bone disease occur in several related disorders. The most common form of the heritable hypophosphatemic disorders, X-linked hypophosphatemia (XLH), is due to loss-of-function mutations of the osteocyte/osteoblast protein, PHEX. Reduced abundance of phosphate transporters on the luminal surface of renal tubular cells in the syngeneic animal model of XLH, and inappropriately normal (or frankly low) ...

FGF23, Klotho and PTH in the Regulation of Mineral Homeostasis

Carpenter Thomas

Background: The Fibroblast Growth Factors (FGFs) are a large family of proteins including paracrine, intracrine, and endocrine FGFs. Paracrine and endocrine FGFs interact with specific cell surface receptors (FGFRs) that, via intracellular tyrosine kinase activity, initiate a cascade of downstream intracellular events. Specificity of paracrine/autocrine FGF activity is provided locally by the local production of these FGFs and their cognate receptors. In contrast, endocrine FG...
