Children with type 1 diabetes report positivity

Research findings presented to the 2019 IES Annual Meeting in Galway stated that children who have been diagnosed with type 1 diabetes show a high level of positivity regarding school life, home life and partaking in activities, while separate research showed that a significant proportion of children with type 1 diabetes remain inactive. Despite the…

Benefits of transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation discussed

A research presentation given at the 2019 Irish Endocrine Society (IES) Annual Meeting demonstrated how transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) appears to improve diet control among obese patients by alleviating hunger, as well as lowering cholesterol and C-peptide. A group of subjects who were eating a calorie-controlled diet and also received TENS for six weeks…

Fat mass correlates with hunger and energy intake in obesity

Research presented to the 2019 IES Annual Meeting has found that, at the extremes of obesity, fat mass (FM) positively correlates with hunger and energy intake (EI). FM has been shown to be negatively associated with EI in lean individuals, potentially due to its production of leptin, but in overweight and class I obese individuals…

High-density lipoprotein particles undergo metabolic activation during obesity

According to research presented in an oral presentation at the IES Annual Meeting, high-density lipoprotein (HDL) particles undergo metabolic activation during obesity and become dysfunctional. Researchers concluded that “determination of MHI (metabolic HDL index) may provide a novel indicator of metabolic health and guide clinical decision-making”. The study was based upon a hypothesis following a…

Routine second fine-needle aspiration to assess thyroid nodules not required in many cases

With well-targeted fine-needle aspiration (FNA) in thyroid nodules, there is a low rate of false-negatives and thus a routine second FNA is not required in these cases, according to a research study carried out by researchers at Beaumont Hospital, Dublin, and presented at the Irish Endocrine Society Annual (IES) meeting in Galway. There remains concern…
