In contrast to adults diabetes mellitus type 1 (DMT1) is the most frequent form of diabetes mellitus during childhood and adolescence (> 95 %). After diagnosis, the management of these DMT1-patients should take place in specialized pediatric units, not in a primary care setting.The lifelong substitution of insulin is the cornerstone of therapy, the form of insulin-therapy should be adapted according to the age of the patient. Diabetes education is also an essential part in the management of diabetes patients and their families...

In den 70er Jahren des vergangenen Jahrhunderts wurde zum ersten Mal ein pathogenetisch relevanter Zusammenhang zwischen Stress, im Sinne von psychosozialem Stress, und Krankheit am Beispiel von viralen Erkrankungen der Schleimhäute (wie Rhinovirus-, Coxsackie-Infektion) nachgewiesen. Seither nehmen Publikationen, die diese Zusammenhänge bis auf die molekulare Ebene erforschen, jährlich zu. Dennoch sind die Evidenzen für einen Einfluss von psychosozialer Belastung auf chronisch-entzündliche Hauterkrankungen und auf Hauttumoren wenig bekannt...

Hypertension is a common and important public health problem in Turkey and worldwide. Recommendations on the diagnosis and treatment of hypertension have been presented in many nationally and internationally agreed European and American guidelines. However, there are differences among these guidelines, and some of the recommendations are not consistent with clinical practice in our country. Consensus report preparation, with the participation of relevant associations, was considered necessary to merge recommendations by evaluating hypertension guidelines from the perspective of Turkey and to create a joint approach in the diagnosis and treatment of hypertension in adults...

BACKGROUND: Thyroid enlargement and thyroid nodules are common in the general population. This review concerns their proper diagnostic assessment and treatment. METHODS: We selectively reviewed the literature from 1990 to 2012 and evaluated original articles and reviews retrieved from the PubMed database, as well as the recommendations of the following specialty societies: the German Societies of Endocrinology and Nuclear Medicine (Deutsche Gesellschaft für Endokrinologie, Deutsche Gesellschaft für Nuklearmedizin), the German Working Group for Endocrine Surgery (Chirurgische Arbeitsgemeinschaft Endokrinologie, CAEK), the European Thyroid Association, and the American Thyroid Association...

Transcaruncular medial orbitotomy is a tissue preserving, time sparing and cosmetically acceptable approach, which is appropriate for treatment of various pathological conditions, as fractures of the medial orbital wall, inflammatory expansions and tumours of adjacent part of the orbit, but also the orbital endokrinopathy and correction of the medial palpebral ligament. Surgical technique and authors' first experience with this approach in female with orbital haemangioma is presented.

INTRODUCTION: Chronic lymphocytic thyroiditis, also known as Hashimoto's thyroiditis, is the most frequent type of thyroiditis. An average of 2% of the population have the disease. It occurs in all age groups, also in children. The main cause of the disease are autoimmune disorders, which results in incresed risk of suffering from type 1 diabetes. Fourthermore, during the course of Hashimoto's thyroiditis, hypothyroidism may cause carbohydrate metabolism disorders. Aim of our study was estimate disturbances of glycaemia in patients with recognized Hashimoto's thyroiditis, hospitalized in Endokrinology and Diabetology Depatment of Collegium Medicum University of Nicolaus Copernicus in Bydgoszcz in years 2001-2010...

CONTEXT: Children with X-linked hypophosphatemic rickets (XLH) are prone to progressive disproportionate stunting despite oral phosphate and vitamin D treatment. OBJECTIVE: Our objective was to analyze the effects of GH treatment on stature and lengths of linear body segments in short children with XLH. DESIGN, SETTINGS, AND PATIENTS: A 3-yr randomized controlled open-label GH study in short prepubertal children with XLH (n = 16) on phosphate and calcitriol treatment was conducted...

BACKGROUND: Hypothyroidism and hypocalcemia are common after thyroid and parathyroid surgery. In this article, the authors provide clinically-oriented recommendations to help surgeons, general practitioners, internists, and endocrinologists give their affected patients adequate hormone replacement therapy. METHODS: Selective evaluation of original articles and reviews that were retrieved by a PubMed search over the years 1980 to 2010, as well as of the recommendations of medical societies including the Endocrine Society (USA), the German Society for Endocrinology (Deutsche Gesellschaft für Endokrinologie), and the American and European Thyroid Associations...

Children with X-linked hypophosphatemic rickets (XLH) are prone to severe stunting. A multicenter mixed-longitudinal study was conducted to assess age-related stature, sitting height, arm and leg length in XLH patients on continuous treatment with phosphate and calcitriol. Mean standard deviation scores (SDS) for all body dimensions were markedly reduced and differed significantly among each other at the initial and subsequent evaluations (baseline: stature -2.48 SDS; sitting height -0.99 SDS; arm length -1...

BACKGROUND: Diseases of the pituitary gland can lead to the dysfunction of individual hormonal axes and to the corresponding clinical manifestations. The diagnostic assessment of pituitary function has not yet been standardized. METHODS: The members of the Neuroendocrinology Section and the Pituitary Study Group of the German Society for Endocrinology (Deutsche Gesellschaft für Endokrinologie) prepared outlines of diagnostic methods for the evaluation of each of the pituitary hormonal axes...

Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) has a prevalence of 5-10% and is defined as oligomenorrhoea, hyperandrogenaemia and/or polycystic ovaries and the exclusion of other aetiologies for the patient's symptoms. There is currently no agreement on the initial evaluation programme for women referred with PCOS or on how the syndrome should be treated. Women with PCOS have an increased risk of the metabolic syndrome upon diagnosis and increased long-term risk of type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease and endometrial cancer...

Physiology and current knowledge about gestational diabetes which led to the adoption of new diagnostic criterias and blood glucose target levels during pregnancy by the Swiss Society for Endocrinology and Diabetes are reviewed. The 6th International Workshop Conference on Gestational Diabetes mellitus in Pasedena (2008) defined new diagnostic criteria based on the results of the HAPO-Trial. These criteria were during the ADA congress in New Orleans in 2009 presented. According to the new criteria there is no need for screening, but all pregnant women have to be tested with a 75 g oral glucose tolerance test between the 24th and 28th week of pregnancy...

Subtotal thyroid resection in the case of benign goiter carries a high risk of recurrence. The relatively high rate of postoperative cancer findings also leads frequently to secondary completion thyroidectomy. Internationally therefore the paradigm has shifted from subtotal resection to extended or total thyroidectomy, which shifts the risk to the vocal cords and parathyroids, where as a rule complications are much worse than those to the thyroid. The main surgical goal therefore is avoiding as far as possible recurrent laryngeal nerve palsy and disturbances to parathyroid function following extended resection...
