CONTEXT: Existing transgender treatment guidelines suggest that for transfeminine hormone treatment there is a need to monitor prolactin levels. Also, recent studies suggest that use of cyproterone acetate as an adjunctive anti-androgen during transgender hormone treatment may elevate serum prolactin. OBJECTIVE: We sought to determine whether the reported relationship between transfeminine estradiol treatment and hyperprolactinemia would be evident when the regimen used spironolactone as the adjunctive anti-androgen...

OBJECTIVE: Iodine is a required nutrient for thyroid function. The mountainous terrain in the Republic of Artsakh (Nagorno Karabakh) in the south Caucasus suggests that it is likely to be endogenously deficient in iodine. The region is heavily dependent on neighboring Armenia for food imports including iodized salt. Since 2005, iodine is a government-sanctioned compulsory supplemental ingredient in salt in Armenia. However, there has never been a study of iodine nutrition in Artsakh. We sought to determine the level of iodine nutrition in Artsakh and the iodine content of table salt in the region...

OBJECTIVE: Over the past three decades, few studies on hyperthyroidism treatment trends have been reported. Therefore, we used a nationwide population-based database to evaluate the current practices and management of hyperthyroidism in Taiwan. METHODS: This retrospective study included a random selection of 1 million people in Taiwan between 2004 and 2010. Hyperthyroidism patients who received anti-thyroid drugs (ATD), radioactive iodine (RAI), or surgery were identified...

OBJECTIVE: Afirma Gene Expression Classifier® (Afirma GEC® ) molecular analysis (Veracyte, Inc.; San Francisco, CA) is a negative predictive value (NPV) test developed to reduce the number of thyroidectomies in thyroid nodule patients with indeterminate cytology. GEC technology has reportedly reduced unnecessary thyroid surgery, but few studies have examined Afirma GEC false negative rates since usually patients with GEC benign nodules do not undergo surgery for definitive diagnosis...

OBJECTIVES: Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) is a complex condition which can include menstrual irregularity, metabolic derangement, and increased androgen levels. The mechanism of PCOS is unknown. Some suggest that excess production of androgens by the ovaries may cause or exacerbate the metabolic findings. The purpose of this study was to assess the role of increased testosterone on metabolic parameters on individuals presumed to be chromosomally female by examination of these parameters in hormone-treated transgender men...

Purpose Understanding of acromegaly disease management is hampered in the US by lack of a national registry. We describe medical management in a population with confirmed acromegaly. Methods Inpatient and outpatient Electronic Health Records (EHR) were used to create a database of de-identified patients assigned the Acromegaly and Gigantism ICD-9 code and/or an appropriate pituitary procedure code at one of four regional hospital systems over a 6-11 year period. Information regarding demographics, medical history, labs, procedures and medications was collected and supplemented with a chart review to validate the diagnosis of acromegaly...

OBJECTIVE: Thyrotropin (TSH) receptor antibody (TRAb) testing is considered accurate for the diagnosis of Graves' disease (GD), and had been identified rarely in thyrotoxic patients without GD. We describe four patients with transient thyrotoxicosis and positive TRAb to highlight this clinical possibility. METHODS: Patient demographics, symptoms, laboratory findings, and time to resolution of thyrotoxicosis are summarized. TRAb testing was performed by either a third-generation thyrotropin binding inhibitory immunoglobulin competitive binding assay (TBII) or a thyroid stimulating antibody bioassay (TSI) from either Mayo Clinic Laboratory or Quest Diagnostics...

OBJECTIVE: To explore the fever of unknown origin (FUO) resulted by Interleukin-6 (IL-6) producing pheochromocytoma. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Patients with pheochromocytoma were gathered from June 2014 to April 2017. The clinical characteristics of patients were recorded such as gender, age, 24hr urinary catecholamines (norepinephrine, epinephrine, dopamine), tumor size, axillary temperature (AT), white blood cells (WBC), serum IL-6 level and high sensitive C Reactive Protein (hsCRP)...

OBJECTIVE: The Diabetes Early Readmission Risk Indicator (DERRI™ ) was previously developed and internally validated as a tool to predict the risk of all-cause readmission within 30 days of discharge (30-d readmission) of hospitalized patients with diabetes. In this study, the predictive performance of the DERRI™ with and without additional predictors was assessed in an external sample. METHODS: We conducted a retrospective cohort study of adult patients with diabetes discharged from 2 academic medical centers between 1/1/2000 and 12/31/2014...

BACKGROUND/AIM: We aimed to determine the effect of percutaneous ethanol injection (PEI) on volume of cystic and mixed thyroid nodules, thyroid function tests (TFTs), antibody titers and cytological changes for 1 year. METHODS: Fifty-five nodules of 53 patients with cystic and mixed properties treated with PEI were included. Nodule volumes, TFTs, thyroid autoantibodies were analyzed at baseline, 6th and 12th months. Fine needle aspiration biopsy (FNAB) was performed to PEI applied nodules in the 12th month...

OBJECTIVE: Existing transgender treatment guidelines suggest that for transmasculine treatment, there is a possible need for estrogen-lowering strategies adjunct to testosterone therapy. Further, guidelines advocate consideration of prophylactic female reproductive tissue surgeries for transgender men to avoid the possibility of estrogen-related health risks. Despite the paucity of objective data, some transgender men seek conversion inhibitors. We sought to determine estradiol levels in transgender men treated with testosterone therapy and the change in those levels with treatment, if any...

OBJECTIVE: To identify provider recommendations and barriers in obesity management in a multicenter academic health system with extensive weight-loss management resources. METHODS: A 26-question online survey was sent to attending physicians, trainees, and advanced practice providers in primary care specialties (internal medicine, family medicine, women's health) and endocrinology. RESULTS: The survey response rate was 26% (111/430). Of respondents, 50% were internal medicine, 24% family medicine, 16% women's health, and 9% endocrinology...
