  2. 2. Pituitary autoantibodies in endocrine disorders

    Författare :Sophie Bensing; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; Lymphocytic hypophysitis; hypopituitarism; empty sella syndrome; APS 1; autoantibodies; autoantigen; Secretogranin II; TDRD6.;

    Sammanfattning : Autoimmune endocrine disorders are characterised by the development of autoantibodies to specific autoantigens in the target organs. Lymphocytic hypophysitis (LyH) is a disease characterised by inflammation of the pituitary gland, often resulting in hypopituitarism. The aetiology of LyH is considered to be autoimmune. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Effects of growth hormone on cardiovascular risk factors and atherosclerosis

    Författare :Maria Leonsson Zachrisson; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :growth hormone; pituitary deficiency; dietary fat; cholesterol; low density; lipoprotein; intima-media thickness; IL-6; CRP; TNF-á;

    Sammanfattning : Hypopituitary patients with growth hormone (GH) deficiency (GHD) have increasedmorbidity and mortality from cardiovascular disease (CVD). GH treatment has both beneficialand potentially negative cardiovascular effects. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Aspects of diagnosis and treatment of hypopituitarism in adult life

    Författare :Helena Filipsson; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :hypopituitarism; pituitary; diagnosis; treatment; GHD; central hypothyroidism; genetic; idiopathic; ACTH insufficiency; discontinuation;

    Sammanfattning : Management of adult patients with hypopituitarism can improve with better char¬ac¬terisation of idiopathic pituitary insufficiency (IPI) and clearer diagnosis of central hy¬pothy¬roidism (CH). Moreover, optimised treatment strategies for glucocorticoid (GC) re¬placement therapy and of long-term growth hormone (GH) in GH deficiency (GHD) are needed. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Long-term effects of growth hormone replacement in hypopituitary adults on body composition, bone mass and cardiovascular risk factors

    Författare :Mariam Elbornsson; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :growth hormone; growth hormone deficiency; growth hormone replacement; bone mineral density; body composition; muscle strength; elderly; cardiovascular risk factors; pituitary irradiation;

    Sammanfattning : Growth hormone (GH) deficient (GHD) adults have decreased bone mass and muscle strength, impaired body composition, disturbed serum lipid pattern and increased morbidity and mortality in cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases. GH replacement normalizes most of these aberrations within the first year of treatment. LÄS MER
