The main objective of the study is to assess the sensitivity of the salivary cortisol dosage at 23 hours compared to the serum cortisol dosage at 8 am after overnight 1-mg dexamethasone suppression test (Suppression of serum cortisol <1.8 μg/dL ) as the reference method for the detection of ACIC in obese subjects

The aim of this study was to investigate the influence of the use of headphones in salivary cortisol levels in newborns (NB) during periods of nap aimed at noise reduction, brightness and ...
In mitotane treated patients, serum cortisol cannot be used to diagnose hypoadrenalism, since mitotane increases cortisol binding globulin levels (CBG), artificially raising total cortisol...
Background: The purpose of the present study was to compare serum total cortisol (STC), salivary cortisol (SaC) and calculated free cortisol (cFC) levels at the baseline and after the ACTH...
Aldosterone, the major mineralocorticoid hormone and cortisol, the major glucocorticoid hormone are produced in the adrenal gland. Aldosterone binds intracellular mineralocorticoid recepto...
With the aim of evaluating the putative impacts of emotion related personality factors on physical and mental disease and the mechanisms of these impacts, 58 students were submitted to a s...
Salivary secretory immunoglobulin A (sIgA), saliva flow rate and plasma cortisol concentrations have been shown to be influenced by exercise, particularly the intensity exercise is performed at, and c...
In this issue of Clinical Endocrinology, Elder et al demonstrate the profile of salivary cortisol and cortisone following synacthen administration. Using a dexamethasone-induced model of adrenocortic...
Knowledge about the stress response in children with cleft lip and/or palate (CL/P) is sparse and the association between the stress response and health-related quality of life (HRQoL) is unknown. Con...
Patients with adrenal insufficiency (AI) require life-long glucocorticoid (GC) replacement therapy. Cortisol measurement in saliva is increasingly being used: we assessed salivary cortisol rhythm in o...
In this study, we compared the 2 mg dexamethasone suppression test (DST) with the gold-standard 1 mg DST in obese patients in order to reduce the false-positive rate for Cushing's syndrome (CS). T...
A condition of having excess fat in the abdomen. Abdominal obesity is typically defined as waist circumferences of 40 inches or more in men and 35 inches or more in women. Abdominal obesity raises the risk of developing disorders, such as diabetes, hypertension and METABOLIC SYNDROME X.
A condition caused by prolonged exposure to excess levels of cortisol (HYDROCORTISONE) or other GLUCOCORTICOIDS from endogenous or exogenous sources. It is characterized by upper body OBESITY; OSTEOPOROSIS; HYPERTENSION; DIABETES MELLITUS; HIRSUTISM; AMENORRHEA; and excess body fluid. Endogenous Cushing syndrome or spontaneous hypercortisolism is divided into two groups, those due to an excess of ADRENOCORTICOTROPIN and those that are ACTH-independent.
Calculi occurring in a salivary gland. Most salivary gland calculi occur in the submandibular gland, but can also occur in the parotid gland and in the sublingual and minor salivary glands.
Proteins and peptides found in SALIVA and the SALIVARY GLANDS. Some salivary proteins such as ALPHA-AMYLASES are enzymes, but their composition varies in different individuals.
A hereditary disease characterized by childhood onset HYPERTENSION, hypokalemic alkalosis, and low RENIN and ALDOSTERONE secretion. It results from a defect in the activity of the 11-BETA-HYDROXYSTEROID DEHYDROGENASE TYPE 2 enzyme which results in inadequate conversion of CORTISOL to CORTISONE. The build up of unprocessed cortisol to levels that stimulate MINERALOCORTICOID RECEPTORS creates the appearance of having excessive MINERALOCORTICOIDS.
Obesity is the condition in which excess fat has accumulated in the body (mostly in subcutaneous tissues). clinical obesity is considered to be present when a person has a BMI of over 30 (Oxford Dictionary of Medicine). It is becoming increasing common i...
