Background/Aim: Several criteria for the first year growth response (FYGR) to growth hormone (GH) treatment have been proposed. We explored which FYGR criteria predict best the final height outcome after GH treatment in prepubertal children with GH deficiency (GHD).Methods: Height data of 129 GHD children (83 boys) treated with GH for at least 4 consecutive years with at least 1 year before pubertal onset, were retrieved...

Brain Magnetic Resonance Imaging in Children with Isolated Growth Hormone Deficiency and Idiopathic Short Stature Diagnoses

Yesquen Pamela , Clemente María , Campos Ariadna , Mogas Eduard , Vázquez Élida , Carrascosa Antonio , Yeste Diego

Introduction: Diagnosis of growth hormone deficiency (GHD) and idiopathic short stature (ISS) is not straightforward. Nowadays growth hormone (GH) stimulation tests play a key role in the diagnosis but they are controversial due to the lack of normative data, poor reproducibility and poor disease concordance.The magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is also a tool in the study of patients with short stature. Structural alterations of the hypo...

Case Report on Hyperinsulinism/hyperammonaemia Syndrome: An Easily Treatable Cause of Postprandial Hypoglycaemia

Seneviratne Sumudu , Jayatunge Tharanga , Atapattu Navoda , De Silva K. S. H. , Wickramasinghe V. P. , De Silva Harendra

Background: Hyperinsulinism/hyperammonaemia (HI/HA) syndrome is associated with postprandial hypoglycaemia and mild hyperammonemia. There is increased insulin release following protein ingestion, which is amenable to diaxozide therapy. While developmental delay and normoglycaemic seizures can also occur, hepatomegaly has not been reported. We report a child with HI/HA and hepatomegaly, mild learning difficulty and obesity, who was initially mistaken to have glycogen storage di...

Improved Health-related Quality of Life with Insulin Therapy in Children with Cystic Fibrosis-related Diabetes: a Prospective Cohort Study

George Sherly , Hoey Hilary M C V , Costigan Colm , Murphy Nuala , Roche Edna F , O'Riordan Stephen M P

Background: Cystic fibrosis-related diabetes (CFRD) is a common complication in cystic fibrosis (CF). CFRD symptoms and treatment may impose additional burden and adversely affect their QoL.Objective and hypotheses: Assess HRQoL in CF children with normal glycaemia (CFN) and CFRD and evaluate the change in HRQoL over 1 year period along with clinical changes.Method: A prospective study was undertaken including children aged 10&#150...

Pseudohypoaldosteronism Type 1: Role of Urinary Steroid Profiling in Specific and Early Diagnosis: Lessons in Differential Diagnosis of PHA1 vs PHA2 (Renal Tract Anomaly)

Abbot V , Ghataore L , Pieterse D J , Chapman S , Kapoor R R , Taylor N F , Buchanan C R

Background: Pseudohypoaldosteronism type 1 (PHA1) is a rare disorder of neonatal salt loss unresponsive to mineralocorticoids, requiring salt supplementation. It results from resistance of kidney and/or other tissues to mineralocorticoids, arising from mutations in genes encoding mineralocorticoid receptor (MR: NR3C2; autosomal dominant), or epithelial sodium channel (ENaC) genes (SCNN1A/B/G; autosomal recessive). Milder clinical phenotype associates with ren...

Nagesh V Sri , Sahay Rakesh Kumar , Kudugunti Neelaveni , Rao Vishnuvardhan , Hashmi Syed Mustafa , Vikram Aditya , Jiwani Sania , Hyder Sana

Background: Recent studies have shown a rising trend in pediatric obesity. However, studies dealing with the ultimate metabolic consequences of pediatric obesity and the means of accurately predicting these consequences are limited.Objective and hypotheses: To study the utility of WHtR as a marker of insulin resistance. To validate the presently used cutoffs (≧0.5) and validate its utility in populations studies.Method: 96 c...

Assessment of DRD2 dopamine receptor gene rs6277 in pediatric obesity: a case-control study

Machado Pinto Renata , Alves Nygell S , Fortes Jakeline S , Monteiro Rubia V , Minasi Lysa B , da Cruz Aparecido Divino ,

Introduction: Obesity is a multifactorial disease resulting from an interplay between genetics and the environment. Metabolic, nutritional, psychosocial, and lifestyle factors participate, promoting various degrees of overweight or obesity. Pediatric obesity increases after infancy and is higher in early adulthood, showing a heritability of up to 85%. Genetic variants associated with BMI in children can exert their effects by affecting eating behavior, as is t...

Background: Detection of type 1 diabetes (T1D) at the pre-clinical stage is possible by detecting islet autoantibodies (IA) years before the appearance of symptomatic diabetes. An efficient screening program based on these antibodies will identify children at risk of developing diabetes during childhood. The antibody detection Israeli research (ADIR) is a general population screening program in Israel searching for children with multiple IA who are at risk of ...
