Childhood attachment experiences affect adult emotion regulation and ability to cope with stressors. Therefore, insecure attachment may influence the functioning of the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis and a dysregulation of HPA axis has been found in insecure attached healthy individuals. The effects of attachment on HPA axis activity have never been investigated in eating disorders (EDs). Therefore, we assessed the relationships between insecure attachment and the cortisol awakening response (CAR) in adults with EDs.

The hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis is central to homeostasis, stress responses, energy metabolism, and neuropsychiatric function. The history of this complex system involves discovery of th...
Patients with advanced cancer commonly experience multiple symptoms that present as groups or clusters. The present study aimed to examine whether hypothalamus-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis dysfunction...
Hoarding is linked to ambivalence and uncertainty about one's self and others. These notions are close to those constituting attachment representations. Hoarding is also linked to seeking support from...

Questions of how altered functioning of the hypothalamic pituitary adrenal (HPA) axis contribute to the development and maintenance of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) have been the focus of exten...
Cortisol is a naturally occurring stress hormone, made by the adrenal glands in response to hormones produced by the pituitary and hypothalamus. Man-made forms of cortisol ('steroids', for...

We hypothesise that parathyroid hormon (PTH) depletion interferes with normal activity of the hypothalamus-pituitary-adrenal (HPA)-axis and the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone-system (RAAS),...
Glucocorticoids are widely used for the treatment of chronic inflammatory diseases. Although glucocorticoids are effective in controlling disease symptoms, continuous use of the drugs can ...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the potential of DFD-06 to suppress the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis when applied twice daily for 15 days.
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.
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 pituitary adenylate cyclase-activating peptide receptor subtype that is found in the HYPOTHALAMUS; BRAIN STEM; PITUITARY GLAND; ADRENAL GLAND; PANCREAS; and TESTES and has a high affinity only for PACAP.
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.
Tests that evaluate the adrenal glands controlled by pituitary hormones.
Endocrine disorders are grouped into two categories: hormone imbalance - when a gland produces too much or too little of an endocrine hormone development of lesions (such as nodules or tumors) in the endocrine system, which may or may not affect...
