  • Incidence of Hyperthyroidism in Sweden.
  • 2011
  • Ingår i: European journal of endocrinology. - : Society of the European Journal of Endocrinology. - 1479-683X .- 0804-4643. ; 165, s. 899-905
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • AbstractIntroduction: The incidence of hyperthyroidism has been reported in various countries to be 23 - 93/100 000 inhabitants/year. This extended study has evaluated the incidence for approximately 40% of the Swedish population of 9 million inhabitants. Sweden is considered iodine sufficient.Methods: All patients including children, who were newly diagnosed with overt hyperthyroidism in the years 2003-2005, were prospectively registered in a multicenter study. Inclusion criteria: clinical symptoms and/or signs of hyperthyroidism with plasma TSH concentration below < 0.2 mIE/l, increased plasma levels of free/total T3 and/or free/total T4. Patients with relapse of hyperthyroidism or thyroiditis were not included. The diagnosis Graves' disease (GD), toxic multinodular goiter (TMNG) and solitary toxic adenoma (STA), smoking, initial treatment, occurrence of thyroid associated eye symptoms/-signs and demographic data were registered.Results: 2916 patients were diagnosed with de novo hyperthyroidism giving the total incidence of 27.6 / 100000 inhabitants/year. The incidence of GD was 21.0/100000 and toxic nodular goiter (TNG=STA + TMNG) occurred in 692 patients, corresponding to an annual incidence of 6.5 /100 000. The incidence was higher in women compared to men (4.2:1). 75% of the patients were diagnosed as GD, in whom thyroid associated eye symptoms/-signs occurred at diagnosis in every fifth patient. Geographical differences were observed. Conclusion: The incidence of hyperthyroidism in Sweden is in a lower range compared to international reports. Patients with hyperthyroidism had GD in 75% and 20% of them had thyroid associated eye symptoms/-signs at diagnosis. The observed geographical differences require further studies.

  • GLP1 analogs as treatment of postprandial hypoglycemia following gastric bypass surgery : a potential new indication?
  • 2013
  • Ingår i: European Journal of Endocrinology. - 0804-4643 .- 1479-683X. ; 169:6, s. 885-889
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • Objective: The number of morbidly obese subjects submitted to bariatric surgery is rising worldwide. In a fraction of patients undergoing gastric bypass (GBP), episodes with late postprandial hypoglycemia (PPHG) develop 1-3 years after surgery. The pathogenesis of this phenomenon is not fully understood; meal-induced rapid and exaggerated increases of circulating incretins and insulin appear to be at least partially responsible. Current treatments include low-carbohydrate diets, inhibition of glucose intestinal uptake, reduction of insulin secretion with calcium channel blockers, somatostatin analogs, or diazoxide, a KATP channel opener. Even partial pancreatectomy has been advocated. In type 2 diabetes, GLP1 analogs have a well-documented effect of stabilizing glucose levels without causing hypoglycemia. Design: We explored GLP1 analogs as open treatment in five consecutive GBP cases seeking medical attention because of late postprandial hypoglycemic symptoms. Results: Glucose measured in connection with the episodes in four of the cases had been 2.7, 2.5, 1.8, and 1.6 mmol/l respectively. The patients consistently described that the analogs eliminated their symptoms, which relapsed in four of the five patients when treatment was reduced/discontinued. The drug effect was further documented in one case by repeated 24-h continuous glucose measurements. Conclusion: These open, uncontrolled observations suggest that GLP1 analogs might provide a new treatment option in patients with problems of late PPHG.

  • Hypoglycemia in everyday life after gastric bypass and duodenal switch
  • 2015
  • Ingår i: European Journal of Endocrinology. - 0804-4643 .- 1479-683X. ; 173:1, s. 91-100
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • Design: Gastric bypass (GBP) and duodenal switch (DS) in morbid obesity are accompanied by marked metabolic improvements, particularly in glucose control. In recent years, episodes of severe late postprandial hypoglycemia have been increasingly described in GBP patients; data in DS patients are scarce. We recruited three groups of subjects; 15 GBP, 15 DS, and 15 non-operated overweight controls to examine to what extent hypoglycemia occurs in daily life. Methods: Continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) was used during 3 days of normal activity. The glycemic variability was measured by mean amplitude of glycemic excursion and continuous overall net glycemic action. Fasting blood samples were drawn, and the patients kept a food and symptom log throughout the study. Results: The GBP group displayed highly variable CGM curves, and 2.9% of their time was spent in hypoglycemia (< 3.3 mmol/l, or 60 mg/dl). The DS group had twice as much time in hypoglycemia (5.9%) and displayed CGM curves with little variation as well as lower HbA1c levels (29.3 vs 35.9 mmol/mol, P < 0.05). Out of a total of 72 hypoglycemic episodes registered over the 3-day period, 70 (97%) occurred in the postprandial state and only about one-fifth of the hypoglycemic episodes in the GBP and DS groups were accompanied by symptoms. No hypoglycemias were seen in controls during the 3-day period. Conclusion: Both types of bariatric surgery induce marked, but different, changes in glucose balance accompanied by frequent, but mainly unnoticed, hypoglycemic episodes. The impact and mechanism of hypoglycemic unawareness after weight-reduction surgery deserves to be clarified.

  • GH replacement in hypopituitarism improves lipid profile and quality of life independently of changes in obesity variables
  • 2008
  • Ingår i: European Journal of Endocrinology. - 0804-4643 .- 1479-683X. ; 159:6, s. 825-832
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • Objective: GH deficiency (GHD) in adults is characterized by elevated body mass index (BMI), increased waist girth (WG) and increased fat mass (FM). Information about how these indicators of obesity affect the lipid profile and quality of life (QoL) of GHD subjects is scarce. It is also unclear how changes in these indicators brought about by GH replacement influence lipids and QoL. Design and methods: Adult GHD Subjects from the Pfizer International Metabolic Database were grouped according to BMI (n = 291 with BMI < 25 kg/m(2), n = 372 with BMI 25-30 kg/m(2), n = 279 with BMI > 30 kg/m(2)), WG (n = 508 with normal WG, n = 434 with increased WG) and FM (n = 357) and according to changes in these variables after 1 year of GH replacement. Serum IGF-1 concentrations, lipid concentrations and QoL using the QoL Assessment of GHD in Adults questionnaire were assessed at baseline and after 1 year of treatment. Results: At baseline, total and low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol were similarly elevated in the BMI and WG groups, but high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol decreased and triglycerides increased with increasing BMI and WG. QoL was progressively poorer with increasing BMI and WG. After 1 year of GH replacement, total and LDL cholesterol and QoL improved in all BMI, WG and FM groups. Conclusions: Variables of obesity adversely affect the already unfavourable lipid profile in GHD Subjects by decreasing HDL cholesterol, but do not counteract the positive effect of GH replacement on LDL cholesterol. Similarly, QoL is influenced by obesity, but responds equally well to GH treatment independent of BMI, WG and FM.

  • Determinants of cardiovascular risk in 2589 hypopituitary GH-deficient adults - a KIMS database analysis.
  • 2006
  • Ingår i: European Journal of Endocrinology. - 0804-4643 .- 1479-683X. ; 155:1, s. 79-90
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • Objective: The aim of the present study was to clarify the relationship between GH deficiency (GHD) andsome cardiovascular risk factors and to analyse the effect of GH replacement therapy in a large numberof patients over a prolonged period of time.Design: Data for analysis were retrieved from KIMS (Pfizer International Metabolic Database). Serumconcentrations of total cholesterol, high-density lipoprotein (HDL)-cholesterol, low-density lipoprotein(LDL)-cholesterol and triglycerides were obtained from 2589 patients at baseline and from 1206patients after 1 and 2 years of GH replacement therapy. Body mass index (BMI), waist and hip, restingblood pressure and body composition were also measured.Results: At baseline, the unfavourable effects of GHD were most obvious in the lipid profiledemonstrating elevated mean total and LDL-cholesterol, in the increased waist circumference and theelevated BMI. The cholesterol concentration, BMI and body composition were significantly adverselyaffected by a number of factors, including age, sex and the use of anti-epileptic drugs. The therapeuticeffect of GH was essentially uniform across the whole population. GH replacement reduced significantlythe mean total and LDL-cholesterol, the waist circumference and the fat mass and was maintainedduring 2 years.Conclusions: This analysis of a large number of patients confirmed that GHD adults present with anincreased cardiovascular risk. The sustained improvement of the adverse lipid profile and bodycomposition suggests that GH replacement therapy may reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease andthe premature mortality seen in hypopituitary patients with untreated GHD.

  • GH safety workshop position paper: a critical appraisal of recombinant human GH therapy in children and adults
  • 2016
  • Ingår i: European Journal of Endocrinology. - 0804-4643. ; 174:2, s. P1-P9
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • Recombinant human GH (rhGH) has been in use for 30 years, and over that time its safety and efficacy in children and adults has been subject to considerable scrutiny. In 2001, a statement from the GH Research Society (GRS) concluded that 'for approved indications, GH is safe'; however, the statement highlighted a number of areas for on-going surveillance of long-term safety, including cancer risk, impact on glucose homeostasis, and use of high dose pharmacological rhGH treatment. Over the intervening years, there have been a number of publications addressing the safety of rhGH with regard to mortality, cancer and cardiovascular risk, and the need for long-term surveillance of the increasing number of adults who were treated with rhGH in childhood. Against this backdrop of interest in safety, the European Society of Paediatric Endocrinology (ESPE), the GRS, and the Pediatric Endocrine Society (PES) convened a meeting to reappraise the safety of rhGH. The ouput of the meeting is a concise position statement.

  • Effects of GLP-1 on counter-regulatory responses during hypoglycemia after GBP surgery
  • 2019
  • Ingår i: European Journal of Endocrinology. - : Bioscientifica. - 0804-4643 .- 1479-683X. ; 181:2, s. 161-171
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • Objectives: The aim of the study was to explore the role of GLP-1 receptor activation on the counter-regulation and symptoms of hypoglycemia in subjects who have undergone gastric bypass surgery (GBP).Design: Experimental hyperinsulinemic–hypoglycemic clamp study.Methods: Twelve post-GBP subjects participated in a randomized cross-over study with two hyperinsulinemic, hypoglycemic clamps (glucose nadir 2.7 mmol/L) performed on separate days with concomitant infusions of the GLP-1 analog exenatide or with saline, respectively. Continuous measurements of metabolites and counter-regulatory hormones as well as assessments of heart rate variability and symptoms of hypoglycemia were performed throughout the clamps.Results: No effect of GLP-1 receptor activation on counter-regulatory hormones (glucagon, catecholamines, cortisol, GH) or glucose infusion rate was seen, but we found indications of a downregulation of the sympathetic relative to the parasympathetic nerve activity, as reflected in heart rate variability. No significant differences in symptom of hypoglycemia were observed.Conclusions/interpretation: Short-term exposure to a GLP-1 receptor agonist does not seem to impact the counter-regulatory hormonal and metabolic responses in post-GBP subjects during hypoglycemic conditions, suggesting that the improvement in symptomatic hypoglycemia post-GBP seen following treatment with GLP-1 receptor agonists may be mediated by mechanism not directly involved in counter-regulation.

  • MECHANISMS IN ENDOCRINOLOGY Cushing's syndrome causes irreversible effects on the human brain: a systematic review of structural and functional magnetic resonance imaging studies
  • 2015
  • Ingår i: European Journal of Endocrinology. - 0804-4643. ; 173:1, s. R1-R14
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • Background: Cushing's syndrome (CS) is characterized by excessive exposure to cortisol, and is associated with both metabolic and behavioral abnormalities. Symptoms improve substantially after biochemical cure, but may persist during long-term remission. The causes for persistent morbidity are probably multi-factorial, including a profound effect of cortisol excess on the brain, a major target area for glucocorticoids. Objective: To review publications evaluating brain characteristics in patients with CS using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Methods: Systematic review of literature published in PubMed, Embase, Web of Knowledge, and Cochrane databases. Results: Nineteen studies using MRI in patients with CS were selected, including studies in patients with active disease, patients in long-term remission, and longitudinal studies, covering a total of 339 unique patients. Patients with active disease showed smaller hippocampal volumes, enlarged ventricles, and cerebral atrophy as well as alterations in neurochemical concentrations and functional activity. After abrogation of cortisol excess, the reversibility of structural and neurochemical alterations was incomplete after long-term remission. MRI findings were related to clinical characteristics (i.e., cortisol levels, duration of exposure to hypercortisolism, current age, age at diagnosis, and triglyceride levels) and behavioral outcome (i.e., cognitive and emotional functioning, mood, and quality of life). Conclusion: Patients with active CS demonstrate brain abnormalities, which only partly recover after biochemical cure, because these still occur even after long-term remission. CS might be considered as a human model of nature that provides a keyhole perspective of the neurotoxic effects of exogenous glucocorticoids on the brain.
