Improved survival of patients with prostate and breast cancer has come at a cost. Clinicians need to be vigilant with preventive care for patients with these cancers to maintain their dental and bone health.
For women, athletes with fT levels in the highest tertile had significantly better performance in the 400-meter sprint, 400-meter hurdles, 800-meter sprint, hammer throw, and pole vault.
In patients with disorders of sex development, early diagnosis and care from a multidisciplinary team yield better outcomes.
Disorders of thyroid function are common in type 1 and type 2 diabetes, and a growing number of cases of subclinical hypothyroidism are being detected.
In patients who have had successful thyroid cancer treatment, clinicians should consider scaling back extensive follow-up testing.
As the link between diabetes and PAD becomes more evident, clinicians can best serve patients with these comorbidities by working collaboratively to prevent serious complications.
Despite the preponderance of CS in women of childbearing age and the likelihood of pregnancy triggering CS, the condition is often overlooked because of the overlap of pregnancy and hypercortisolism symptoms.
Despite the frequency with which it occurs, familial hypercholesterolemia often goes undiagnosed, with only 10% of affected patients aware of this genetic disorder.
Type 1 diabetes predisposes children and adults to autoimmune diseases, which can impair glucose metabolism and interfere with insulin therapy.
With greater awareness, better therapeutics, and more precise imaging and biochemical assays, patients with acromegaly can be diagnosed and treated earlier and are oftentimes cured.
Statin therapy is the first line of defense against high LDL-C and the risk for atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease, the leading cause of morbidity and mortality in individuals with diabetes.
Nutraceuticals may offer a solution to patients who cannot tolerate statins because of severe muscle pain.
The transition from pediatric to adult care for type 1 diabetes should be a gradual process, with a plan to make the change when the patient is ready, not at a pre-determined time.
Environmental causes of T2D and other metabolic disorders are often overlooked; a new body of evidence, however, is changing the clinical thinking about mitigating these effects on those at high risk of T2D.
Knowing that certain characteristics increase the risk for dermatology patients who may have metabolic syndrome will enable clinicians to identify patients who may have specific cardiovascular risks.
Previous trials suggested that vitamin D supplementation reduces rates of both influenza and other respiratory infections.
High-dose atorvastatin therapy can reduce inflammation and improve quality of life in patients with severe bronchiectasis and P aeruginosa infection.
