Researchers Look at Vitamin D Levels and Bone Mineral Density in Women with Fibromyalgia
Researchers evaluated and compared vitamin D levels and bone mineral density in women with fibromyalgia to healthy women. Did they find that fibromyalgia is a risk factor for osteoporosis?
Cognitive impairment illustrated by broken mind vector
Researchers investigated the link between subclinical hypothyroidism and cognitive impairment in the elderly. Discover what they found in this thyroid-focused study.
Bariatric surgery, vertical sleeve gastrectomy
Researchers looked at doctors’ attitudes about referring their patients who have type 2 diabetes for bariatric surgery. Is it common for doctors to recommend bariatric surgery for their patients with type 2 diabetes?
CT Scan imagery on computerized equipment
Researchers examined whether targeted assessment for incidental vertebral fractures on computed tomography (CT) examinations of the chest or abdomen in older adults would help indentify previously undetected vertebral fractures.
The words celiac disease
Researchers Look at Whether Celiac Disease Affects Absorption of Levothyroxine
It’s well known that celiac disease is common in patients who have hypothyroidism. Researchers investigated whether the presence and treatment of celiac disease impact levothyroxine dosing.

How Does GHD Effect Body Composition and Cardiovascular Risk Biomarkers?
Body composition and biomarkers of cardiovascular risk are affected by both growth hormone excess and growth hormone deficiency (GHD). While that is a known fact, it’s unknown how developing growth hormone deficiency after being treated for acromegaly affects body composition and cardiovascular risks. A study published in 2012 examined this.
hyperthyroidism word on a tablet with medication and a stethoscope
Senior author Ralf Paschke, MD, PhD, told EndocrineWeb that clinicians treating patients with hyperthyroidism should “be aware of the outlined malignancy risk” in this paper.

In a study, researchers looked at whether work-related psychosocial stress is linked to the risk of type 2 diabetes.
Chemical structure of human growth hormone
Study Also Looked at Growth Hormone Deficiency and Motor Function and Cognition
Even though it’s known that growth hormone insulin-like growth factor-1 is key in normal brain growth, less is known about how the brain structure is impacted by growth hormone deficiency. A study examined this.
