The interactions between the anterior pituitary and adrenal glands, in which corticotropin (ACTH) stimulates the adrenal cortex and adrenal cortical hormones suppress the production of corticotropin by the anterior pituitary.
A collection of NEURONS, tracts of NERVE FIBERS, endocrine tissue, and blood vessels in the HYPOTHALAMUS and the PITUITARY GLAND. This hypothalamo-hypophyseal portal circulation provides the mechanism for hypothalamic neuroendocrine (HYPOTHALAMIC HORMONES) regulation of pituitary function and the release of various PITUITARY HORMONES into the systemic circulation to maintain HOMEOSTASIS.
The main glucocorticoid secreted by the ADRENAL CORTEX. Its synthetic counterpart is used, either as an injection or topically, in the treatment of inflammation, allergy, collagen diseases, asthma, adrenocortical deficiency, shock, and some neoplastic conditions.
An anterior pituitary hormone that stimulates the ADRENAL CORTEX and its production of CORTICOSTEROIDS. ACTH is a 39-amino acid polypeptide of which the N-terminal 24-amino acid segment is identical in all species and contains the adrenocorticotrophic activity. Upon further tissue-specific processing, ACTH can yield ALPHA-MSH and corticotrophin-like intermediate lobe peptide (CLIP).
An adrenocortical steroid that has modest but significant activities as a mineralocorticoid and a glucocorticoid. (From Goodman and Gilman's The Pharmacological Basis of Therapeutics, 8th ed, p1437)
Stress wherein emotional factors predominate.
A peptide of about 41 amino acids that stimulates the release of ADRENOCORTICOTROPIC HORMONE. CRH is synthesized by neurons in the PARAVENTRICULAR NUCLEUS of the HYPOTHALAMUS. After being released into the pituitary portal circulation, CRH stimulates the release of ACTH from the PITUITARY GLAND. CRH can also be synthesized in other tissues, such as PLACENTA; ADRENAL MEDULLA; and TESTIS.
Neoplastic, inflammatory, infectious, and other diseases of the hypothalamus. Clinical manifestations include appetite disorders; AUTONOMIC NERVOUS SYSTEM DISEASES; SLEEP DISORDERS; behavioral symptoms related to dysfunction of the LIMBIC SYSTEM; and neuroendocrine disorders.
Disorders involving either the ADENOHYPOPHYSIS or the NEUROHYPOPHYSIS. These diseases usually manifest as hypersecretion or hyposecretion of PITUITARY HORMONES. Neoplastic pituitary masses can also cause compression of the OPTIC CHIASM and other adjacent structures.
An idiopathic systemic inflammatory granulomatous disorder comprised of epithelioid and multinucleated giant cells with little necrosis. It usually invades the lungs with fibrosis and may also involve lymph nodes, skin, liver, spleen, eyes, phalangeal bones, and parotid glands.
Sarcoidosis affecting predominantly the lungs, the site most frequently involved and most commonly causing morbidity and mortality in sarcoidosis. Pulmonary sarcoidosis is characterized by sharply circumscribed granulomas in the alveolar, bronchial, and vascular walls, composed of tightly packed cells derived from the mononuclear phagocyte system. The clinical symptoms when present are dyspnea upon exertion, nonproductive cough, and wheezing. (Cecil Textbook of Medicine, 19th ed, p431)

A serotonin receptor subtype found primarily in the CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM and the CHOROID PLEXUS. This receptor subtype is believed to mediate the anorectic action of SEROTONIN, while selective antagonists of the 5-HT2C receptor appear to induce ANXIETY. Several isoforms of this receptor subtype exist, due to adenine deaminase editing of the receptor mRNA.
The status during which female mammals carry their developing young (EMBRYOS or FETUSES) in utero before birth, beginning from FERTILIZATION to BIRTH.
A status with BODY WEIGHT that is grossly above the acceptable or desirable weight, usually due to accumulation of excess FATS in the body. The standards may vary with age, sex, genetic or cultural background. In the BODY MASS INDEX, a BMI greater than 30.0 kg/m2 is considered obese, and a BMI greater than 40.0 kg/m2 is considered morbidly obese (MORBID OBESITY).
A 16-kDa peptide hormone secreted from WHITE ADIPOCYTES. Leptin serves as a feedback signal from fat cells to the CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM in regulation of food intake, energy balance, and fat storage.
A synthetic peptide that is identical to the 24-amino acid segment at the N-terminal of ADRENOCORTICOTROPIC HORMONE. ACTH (1-24), a segment similar in all species, contains the biological activity that stimulates production of CORTICOSTEROIDS in the ADRENAL CORTEX.
Conditions in which the production of adrenal CORTICOSTEROIDS falls below the requirement of the body. Adrenal insufficiency can be caused by defects in the ADRENAL GLANDS, the PITUITARY GLAND, or the HYPOTHALAMUS.

Treatment of gonadotropin dependent precocious puberty due to hypothalamic hamartoma with gonadotropin releasing hormone agonist depot. (1/138)

The gonadotropin releasing hormone (GnRH) secreting hypothalamic hamartoma (HH) is a congenital malformation consisting of a heterotopic mass of nervous tissue that contains GnRH neurosecretory neurons attached to the tuber cinereum or the floor of the third ventricle. HH is a well recognised cause of gonadotropin dependent precocious puberty (GDPP). Long term data are presented on eight children (five boys and three girls) with GDPP due to HH. Physical signs of puberty were observed before 2 years of age in all patients. At presentation with sexual precocity, the mean height standard deviation (SD) for chronological age was +1.60 (1.27) and the mean height SD for bone age was -0.92 (1.77). Neurological symptoms were absent at presentation and follow up. The hamartoma diameter ranged from 5 to 18 mm and did not change in six patients who had magnetic resonance imaging follow up. All patients were treated clinically with GnRH agonists (GnRH-a). The duration of treatment varied from 2.66 to 8.41 years. Seven of the eight children had satisfactory responses to treatment, shown by regression of pubertal signs, suppression of hormonal levels, and improvement of height SD for bone age and predicted height. One patient had a severe local reaction to GnRH-a with failure of hormonal suppression and progression of pubertal signs. It seems that HH is benign and that GnRH-a treatment provides satisfactory and safe control for most children with GDPP due to HH.  (+info)

Analysis of urinary nitric oxide metabolites in healthy subjects. (2/138)

Nitric oxide (NO) has divergent actions under physiological and pathological conditions. NO is rapidly decomposed to nitrite (NO2-) and nitrate (NO3-). Since these metabolites are stable, they are good indices of NO production under various conditions. In the present study, we measured NO2- and NO3- concentrations in the urine collected from 62 hospital controls and 504 healthy subjects by means of a new HPLC system combined with Griess reaction. NOx was the sum of NO2- and NO3-. There was no considerable inter-day variation in urinary NO metabolite levels, and there was close correlation between NO2-, NO3- and NOx values in spot urine obtained in the early morning and those in 24-h stored urine in hospital controls. Urinary NO metabolite levels, which were corrected by creatinine (Cr) excretion and expressed on a logarithmic scale, showed normal distribution and were independent of sex and age in healthy subjects. The normal ranges of urinary NO2-, NO3- and NOx levels were estimated as 17-72 micromol/g Cr, 1,023-2,818 pmol/g Cr, and 1,071-2,951 micromol/g Cr, respectively. We also found that urinary NO metabolite levels were lower than normal range in patients with various diseases.  (+info)

Pallister-Hall syndrome: clinical and MR features. (3/138)

A 4-month-old boy with polydactyly and bifid epiglottis was found to have a large sellar and suprasellar mass. When the diagnosis of Pallister-Hall syndrome was made, conservative management was elected. When the patient was 2 years old, the tumor had grown proportionally with the patient, and he was developing appropriately. Although rare, this entity is important to recognize not only for clinical diagnosis but also for appropriate management and genetic counseling.  (+info)

GH deficiency in adults: an epidemiological approach. (4/138)

OBJECTIVE: The prevalence of adult onset GH deficiency (GH-D) is poorly documented. Epidemiological data are now required to estimate the financial cost of GH treatment in adults. The aim of the present study was to estimate the prevalence of GH-D, from a cohort of 1652 adult patients with hypothalamo-pituitary diseases. DESIGN: The hormonal status of all patients presenting with pituitary diseaseand observed during the year 1994 in 15 endocrine units was retrospectively analyzed, irrespective of the date of disease onset, of the nature and date of pituitary investigations, and whether or not they included specific testing of the GH axis. Of the whole population of 1652 patients, a selected group (RG2) was chosen after exclusion of patients with active acromegaly (n=1414). RESULTS: GH stimulation tests had been performed in 549 patients of the RG2 group and a documented GH-D was found in 301. A relationship between the value of the GH peak and the number of pituitary deficits was evaluated. For instance, it was shown that 93% of patients with three deficits had GH-D. These results constituted the basis for estimating the number of GH-D in the group of untested patients. The number of GH-D deduced from the number of established GH-D (n=301) and from the number of GH-D hypothesized from other pituitary deficits (n=406) was 707 cases. Prevalence and annual incidence were calculated from data recorded in a referral center with a well-defined catchment area, Marseilles (Bouches du Rhone department). We projected a prevalence of 2638 for France and an annual incidence of 12 GH-D per million of the adult population.  (+info)

Accelerated puberty and late-onset hypothalamic hypogonadism in female transgenic skinny mice overexpressing leptin. (5/138)

Excess or loss of body fat can be associated with infertility, suggesting that adequate fat mass is essential for proper reproductive function. Leptin is an adipocyte-derived hormone that is involved in the regulation of food intake and energy expenditure, and its synthesis and secretion are markedly increased in obesity. Short-term administration of leptin accelerates the onset of puberty in normal mice and corrects the sterility of leptin-deficient ob/ob mice. These findings suggest a role for leptin as an endocrine signal between fat depots and the reproductive axis, but the effect of hyperleptinemia on the initiation and maintenance of reproductive function has not been elucidated. To address this issue, we examined the reproductive phenotypes of female transgenic skinny mice with elevated plasma leptin concentrations comparable to those in obese subjects. With no apparent adipose tissue, female transgenic skinny mice exhibit accelerated puberty and intact fertility at younger ages followed by successful delivery of healthy pups. However, at older ages, they develop hypothalamic hypogonadism characterized by prolonged menstrual cycles, atrophic ovary, reduced hypothalamic gonadotropin releasing hormone contents, and poor pituitary luteinizing hormone secretion. This study has demonstrated for the first time to our knowledge that accelerated puberty and late-onset hypothalamic hypogonadism are associated with chronic hyperleptinemia, thereby leading to a better understanding of the pathophysiological and therapeutic implication of leptin.  (+info)

MR imaging features in hypothalamic hamartoma: a report of three cases and review of literature. (6/138)

A case of hypothalamic adrenal insufficiency manifested normal ACTH response to insulin-induced hypoglycemia. (7/138)

A low plasma ACTH response to insulin-induced hypoglycemia and an exaggerated and delayed plasma ACTH response to CRH stimulation have been considered as an indicator of hypothalamic hypopituitarism. We report a case of hypothalamic adrenal insufficiency which manifested normal ACTH response to insulin-induced hypoglycemia. This case provides important information to categorize hypothalamic adrenal insufficiency caused by abnormal regulation of CRH release.  (+info)

Inverse correlation between baseline inhibin B and FSH after stimulation with GnRH: a study of serum levels of inhibin A and B, pro alpha-C and activin A in women with ovulatory disturbances before and after stimulation with GnRH. (8/138)

OBJECTIVE: Interest has focused recently on the influences of the polypeptide factors inhibin and activin on the selective regulation of the pituitary secretion of gonadotropins. DESIGN: Measurement of the concentrations of inhibin-related proteins in relation to the changes in pituitary gonadotropin (FSH, LH) parameters, after GnRH stimulation with a bolus injection of 100 microg gonadorelin, in 19 women with ovulatory disturbances. METHODS: Serum levels of inhibin A and B, activin A, and pro alpha-C were measured using sensitive ELISA kits. RESULTS: Within 60 min after GnRH stimulation, FSH values doubled from 5 to 10 mU/ml (P < 0.001). LH increased 12-fold from 2 to 24 mU/ml (P < 0.001). Activin A showed a significant decrease from 0.47 to 0.36 ng/ml (P < 0.001), whereas pro alpha-C increased from 127 to 156 pg/ml (P = 0.039). The median inhibin A concentration did not show a significant change between baseline and the 60 min value, whereas inhibin B was characterized by a minor, but not significant, increase in the median from 168 to 179 pg/ml (P = 0.408). A significant inverse correlation (P = 0.014) with a mean coefficient of correlation of 0.5516 was found, demonstrating a strong relationship between high inhibin B baseline levels and a small increase of FSH after 60 min. CONCLUSION: Our results show an interesting correlation between the baseline inhibin B and the change in FSH before and after GnRH stimulation. A high baseline inhibin B implies only a minor increase of FSH after 60 min.  (+info)

Diseases or tumors of the pituitary gland or the hypothalamus are one cause of hypothalamic amenorrhea. The hypothalamus is an area of the brain that controls hormone production. The hypothalamus tells the pituitary gland to signal the reproductive glands to make hormones. A disruption in this delicate chain of command can result in an estrogen deficiency. Estrogen is essential for regulating the menstrual cycle. A progestin challenge test is used to determine if a lack of estrogen is the problem. Other tests used in the diagnosis of hypothalamic amenorrhea may include laparoscopy, imaging, physical exam, pelvic exam, blood tests, and a pregnancy test.. Oral contraceptives are prescribed as a treatment for both hypothalamic amenorrhea and polycystic ovary disease. If the problem stems from thyroid or pituitary disturbances, different medications will be prescribed. People who have had previous central nervous system chemotherapy or radiation may develop hypothalamic amenorrhea. Young female ...

Children with ROHHAD are seemingly normal before the rapid-onset weight gain, making the diagnosis even more challenging to parents and health care personnel. Between 1.5 and 7 years of age, these children begin to manifest abnormalities that will evolve into the features of ROHHAD. Most commonly, the first sign is dramatic (often 20-30 pounds) and rapid (over 6 to 12 months) weight gain with associated abnormal increase in hunger (hyperphagia). This rapid-onset obesity is considered a sign of hypothalamic dysfunction (abnormality of the endocrine system). Other hypothalamic abnormalities may not be detected at the time of the rapid weight gain, but will be identified any time from months to years following the rapid-onset obesity. These other hypothalamic/endocrine abnormalities may include inability to maintain normal water balance in the body (leading to abnormally high or low sodium levels), high prolactin levels, low thyroid hormone, early or late puberty, and low cortisol among other ...
Hypothalamic amenorrhea (HA) is a one of the main causes of functional reproductive disorder in females.

Hypothalamic dysfunction refers to a condition in which the hypothalamus is not working properly. The hypothalamus produces hormones that control body temperature, hunger, moods, release of hormones from many glands such as the pituitary gland, sex drive, sleep, and thirst. The signs and symptoms patients have vary depending on the hormones missing. A number of different causes including anorexia, bleeding, genetic disorder, tumors, and more have been linked to hypothalamic dysfunction. Treatment depends on the cause of the hypothalamic dysfunction ...

Hi Nico, I also wanted to thank you for this info. I have been diagnosed with HA as well, however my profile does not quite fit the normal profile in that Im not underweight or do excessive sport, but it appears that I have this problem due to excessive stress levels. It also appears that my body went into this sort of hybernation (HA is basically the pituitary gland hybernating) because I used an Implanon which was inserted after I had my son 4 years ago. The Implanon depresses the function of the pituitary gland and it appears that this is what tipped me over the edge into HA. I have had the Implanon removed in May 2007 and have not had any periods since. I have not reacted to the provera withdrawl bleed and the MRI has ruled out pituitary tumor/sheehans syndrom. I should add that before Implanon I was on the loette and never had any period issues or issues conceiving my son. It seems that women with Type A personalities are more prone to HA especially in combination with a depressant such ...

Ive always been into health and fitness and thought they were one in the same. I exercised most days of the week and ate what I thought was a healthy diet for me, while maintaining a fairly low body weight. I was into running long distance races like half- marathons, marathons and trail races and trained to get faster. I liked pushing my body to see how far I could run or how fast I could go. I also strength trained, took spin classes, swam, did boot camps and the occasional yoga class for cross training. I thought my fitness level made me healthy and frankly was oblivious to all the symptoms that told a different story.. After ending a long-term relationship I decided to stop taking the birth control pill. Id heard it was bad for your health and depleted certain nutrients such as your B vitamins and zinc. My period stopped as soon as I stopped putting those artificial hormones into my body. My training also increased with the end of that relationship as I had more time to focus on it. A year ...

I was always told by doctors that I would have a hard time conceiving so I would only go on the pill periodically which i did for more than 4 years, not for protection against getting pregnant, but just to get a period (since I was told its not healthy to have less than 4 or so periods a year). Last time I went on a 3 month birth control pill and then stopped again because the medicine was not curing my pcos nor making me get pregnant.

OBJECTIVE: The diagnosis of GH deficiency in adults relies on the results of GH provocative testing. Whilst in some patients the testing strategy is clear, this is not the case in all patients. The objective of this study was to further examine the concordance between the GH responses to two different provocative stimuli, to correlate this with the number of additional pituitary hormone deficits, and to produce guidelines as to which patients require two GH provocative tests and which require only one. STUDY DESIGN AND PATIENTS: The results of GH provocative tests were reviewed in 103 patients (mean age 28 years, 48 male), with documented or potential hypothalamic-pituitary disease and 35 normal volunteers (mean age 21 years, 18 male). All patients and normal volunteers underwent an insulin tolerance test (ITT) and an arginine stimulation test (AST). Severe GH deficiency was defined as a GH response to an ITT of , 5 mU/l and a GH response to an AST of , 2 mU/l, utilizing data from previous ...

Stefani, I appreciate your unique blog and all the great information that you share. A couple of years ago, your cautionary post on intermittent (and other types of) fasting by women helped me a lot, and since then, at various times, in the comment sections of newspaper/magazine articles and other blogs articles about fasting, I have posted a link to that article by you so women who are thinking of doing some kind of fast will have a more nuanced understanding of what it might entail for them (as females).. Regarding the topic of hypothalmic amenorrhea and other endocrinological issues, I would like to mention to readers who have not received hypothalmic amenorrhea as an official diagnosis by a doctor, but who have an array of confusing symptoms and are trying to figure out what it might mean, that what they are dealing with may not be this, but may be another endocrinological problem. One of the readers who commented earlier here mentioned that her doctors had looked into endometriosis, ...
Object. Hypothalamic hamartoma is a nonneoplastic malformative mass of neurons and glia in the region of the hypothalamus. Because of its location, open surgery is associated with high morbidity and mortality rates. Gamma knife surgery (GKS) may be an efficient and safe treatment approach, which produces little morbidity. The authors describe the results of GKS in three patients with hypothalamic hamartomas.. Methods. All patients were male, aged 3, 12, and 15 years. The lesions were classified according to the Valdueza scale: one was Type IIb and two were Type IIa. The patients presented with gelastic seizures (15-20 per day), generalized epilepsy, behavioral abnormalities, and alterations of the sleep cycle. Precocious puberty was present in one patient. The Type IIb tumor had a volume of 1.8 cm3, and the Type IIa tumors were 597 mm3 and 530.1 mm3. The lesions received 12.5 Gy, 14 Gy, and 15 Gy, respectively, to the 50% isodose line. The patients were followed for 30 to 50 months. After 3 ...

Gamma knife surgery (GKS) may be an efficient and safe treatment approach, which produces little morbidity. The authors describe the results of GKS in three patients with hypothalamic hamartomas.. Methods. All patients were male, aged 3, 12, and 15 years. The lesions were classified according to the Valdueza scale: one was Type IIb and two were Type IIa. The patients presented with gelastic seizures (15-20 per day), generalized epilepsy, behavioral abnormalities, and alterations of the sleep cycle. Precocious puberty was present in one patient. The Type IIb tumor had a volume of 1.8 cm3, and the Type IIa tumors were 597 mm3 and 530.1 mm3. The lesions received 12.5 Gy, 14 Gy, and 15 Gy, respectively, to the 50% isodose line. The patients were followed for 30 to 50 months. After 3 ...
In this report, we showed the subject with hypothalamic hypopituitarism which was diagnosed based on the following findings: excess and delayed reaction of ACTH in CRH load test, delayed reaction of LH and FSH in LHRH load test, poor GH reaction in arginine load test. Although we understood that it would be important to perform insulin tolerance test in order to reconfirm the dysfunction of the hypothalamus in this subject, we failed to obtain the agreement from this subject about the insulin load test due to the risk of the occurrence of hypoglycemia. It was reasonable that this subject was very afraid of the occurrence of hypoglycemia because she experienced severe hypoglycemia repeatedly. Therefore, we decided not to perform insulin tolerance test in this subject. The GH releasing hormone + arginine (GHRH + ARG) test is the best method to accurately evaluate GH secretion. However, according to the Japanese guideline for adult GH deficiency (The hypothalamic-pituitary dysfunction study group ...
Objective: To determine whether cognitive behavior therapy (CBT), which we had shown in a previous study to restore ovarian function in women with functional hypothalamic amenorrhea (FHA), could also ameliorate hypercortisolemia and improve other neuroendocrine and metabolic concomitants of in FHA. Design: Randomized controlled trial. Setting: Clinical research center at an academic medical university. Patient(s): Seventeen women with FHA were randomized either to CBT or observation. Intervention(s): CBT versus observation. Main Outcome Measure(s): Circulatory concentrations of cortisol, leptin, thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH), total and free thyronine (T 3 ), and total and free thyroxine (T 4 ) before and immediately after completion of CBT or observation. (Each woman served as her own control.) Result(s): Cognitive behavior therapy but not observation reduced cortisol levels in women with FHA. There were no changes in cortisol, leptin, TSH, T 3 , or T 4 levels in women randomized to ...
Functional Hypothalamic Amenorrhea (FHA), the spontaneous cessation of the menstrual cycle for at least 6 months after menstrual cyclicity has been established, is a common and reversible form of anovulation not due to discernible organic causes. Whereas animal studies suggest an interaction of metabolic and psychosocial stress in the genesis of FHA, the distinct central mechanisms in humans are not clear. On a behavioral level, FHA appears to depend on a complex interplay between individual stress susceptibility, stressful life events, and enduring metabolic challenge due to inappropriate attitudes towards eating and body image. We will use a comparison group of ovulatory, eumenorrheic women (EW) and a contrast group of lean women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). Although women with FHA and PCOS present with anovulation, each condition differs markedly in pathobiology (and health burden). Contrasting women with FHA to those with PCOS will afford an opportunity to understand more about the ...
Hypogonadism is separated into two types: primary hypogonadism (resulting from dysfunction of the testis or ovary) or central hypogonadism (resulting from pituitary or hypothalamic dysfunction that leads to loss of lutenizing horomne [LH] and follicle-stimulating hormone [FSH]).. Causes of hypogondaism include genetic, menopausual, autoimmune, viral, radiation, and chemotherapeutic agents. Central hypogonadism is often due to pituitary adenomas. Through compression of the gland, these tumors can cause destruction of pituitary tissue or interference with gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) input from the hypothalamus. Gonadotropin dysfunction is the second most common hormonal disorder from compression of the pituitary gland from a pituitary adenoma after GH suppression. Hypothalamic disorders such as tumors and hypothalamic amenorrhea, as well as exposure to radiation, can lead to hypogonadism. Fasting, weight loss, anorexia nervosa, bulimia, exercise, or stressful conditions result in defects ...
Shapiro syndrome is an extremely rare disorder consisting of paroxysmal hypothermia (due to hypothalamic dysfunction of thermoregulation), hyperhydrosis (sweating), and agenesis of the corpus callosum with onset typically on adulthood. The disease affects about 50 people worldwide. The duration and frequency of the episodes vary from person to person, with some episodes lasting hours to weeks and occurring from hours to years. Very little is known about the disease due to the small number of people affected.

A hypothalamic hamartoma (HH) is a rare developmental malformation associated with seizures of varying semiology, including Gelastic seizures [1, 2, 3, 4]. The hamartoma is typically located on the ventral portion of the hypothalamus near the mammillary bodies [5]. The presence of a HH is linked with cognitive decline and behavioral issues, as well as the early onset of puberty [1, 5, 6]. Roughly half of all patients with HH have either focal or general cognitive deficits of varying severity (with some ultimately declining to the point of intellectual disability), and around one-third have behavioral difficulties including ADHD, violent outbursts, conduct disorder, and co-morbid psychiatric conditions [5, 7, 8]. The cognitive decline and behavioral disturbances observed in patients with HH are linked with both the size and location of the hamartoma, as well as seizure frequency [5]. As for treatment options, anti-epileptic drugs have poor efficacy in this population and a surgical approach (e.g. ...

Medication: Birth control pills can stimulate and regulate the menstrual period if a woman is not trying to get pregnant. Infertility patients with PCOS may start with Clomiphene Citrate, a medication designed to stimulate the ovaries to produce multiple follicles and eggs. Other fertility drugs - Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (HCG) and Human Menopausal Gonadotropin (HMG) - also may be prescribed if Clomiphene Citrate alone is not effective. Finally, Progesterone may be necessary to help thicken the uterine lining and sustain pregnancy.. Medication also is available to suppress overproduction of Prolactin caused by Hyperprolactinemia. In cases of Hypothalamic Amenorrhea, Gonadotropins (LH and FSH) are prescribed to regulate levels of these hormones.. Ovulation Induction (OI): Used alone or with Insemination, OI relies on fertility drugs to stimulate development of the follicles and eggs. For this reason, it can be an effective treatment for various forms of ovulatory dysfunction and Luteal phase ...

October 9, 2013 Infertility is often a symptom of an underlying health condition. For women, conditions like PCOS or Hypothalamic Amenorrhea result in anovulation and could be indicative of endocrine system hormone imbalances. Sometimes balancing diet and exercise can restore a womans menstrual cycle. As it turns out, this concept also applies to men. Male factor infertility is responsible for about half of all infertility cases, and as many as 40% of infertility cases are the combined result of both male factor and female factor infertility. It is important for men and couples to be educated on male factor infertility and to seek an evaluation to rule out hormone imbalances resulting from poor diet and lack of exercise, cancers, or other underlying health conditions which manifest through poor sperm quality or quantity.

It is well known that circulating adiponectin concentrations are reduced in animal models of obesity and in patients with obesity or metabolic syndrome, despite adipocyte hypertrophy or increased body fat (2-6). However, the details of adiponectin production and release have varied among studies, especially in animal models (10,28,29,32,33). This is probably due to the apparently different etiology of the three types of obese animal models: genetic, diet-induced, and hypothalamic obesity (20,34).. VMH lesion-induced hypothalamic obesity in animals is the only obesity model that shows clear derangements of autonomic nervous activities (hyperactivity of the vagus nerve and hypoactivity of sympathetic nerves) compared with genetic (20), diet-induced obesity (34), and other types of hypothalamic obesity (19). Thus, there is a possibility that this animal model has different characteristics of adiponectin production and release, with resultant change of serum adiponectin, compared with those of other ...

The long-term effects of radiotherapy and chemotherapy are becoming increasingly recognized as the cure rates of certain childhood malignancies improve. The endocrine system is particularly sensitive to cancer therapies. Long-term survivors of childhood cancer who received cranial irradiation have been shown to have lower than predicted height, an increased prevalence of obesity and reductions in strength, exercise tolerance, bone mineral density, quality of life and academic achievement. Growth hormone deficiency (GHD) is the most frequent endocrine deficiency observed following cranial irradiation. Adults with GHD resulting from primary hypothalamic-pituitary disease during childhood have been shown to exhibit a clinical picture similar to that described in long-term survivors of childhood cancer: increased fat mass and reduced lean mass, strength, exercise tolerance, bone mineral density and quality of life. This review considers the possible contribution of GHD to the adverse sequelae ...

Comparisons of hypothalamic dysfunction between Huntington’s Disease (HD) patients and rodent models of HD have not always yielded similar results. Cortisol levels in HD patients have been contradictory, with reports ranging from hypo- to hypercorticoidism of morning measurements. Initial reports of major elevations in circulating corticosterone levels in the R6/2 mouse model of HD have only been followed up in one other closely related model, the R6/1 mouse, and the results were not perfectly congruent. To determine if abnormal stress hormones were a characteristic of disease, we examined diurnal and stress-induced corticosterone levels in multiple HD mouse models ...
