Anorexia nervosa is a syndrome of unknown etiology. It is associated with multiple endocrine abnormalities. Hypothalamic monoamines (especially serotonin), neuropeptides (especially neuropeptide Y and cholecystokinin) and leptin are involved in the regulation of human appetite, and in several ways they are changed in anorexia nervosa. However, it remains to(More)
OBJECTIVE In animals, somatostatin (SRIH) and growth hormone (GH)-releasing hormone (GHRH) increase feeding via a common neural mechanism. Furthermore, SRIH counteracts the suppressive action of corticotrophin-releasing hormone (CRH) on food intake. Hypothetically, SRIH could be involved in the central feeding mechanism in anorexia nervosa (AN). Peripheral(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the effect of treatment with insulin aspart compared with NPH insulin, together with metformin/placebo and rosiglitazone/placebo. The hypothesis was that combined correction of major pathogenetic defects in type 2 diabetes would result in optimal glycemic control. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS This study was a 2-year(More)
The physiological and pathophysiological role of cortisol in pulsatile LH release was investigated in 14 patients (5 men, 6 premenopausal women, and 3 postmenopausal women) with Addison's disease. The explicit effect of cortisol in relation to the effect of corticotropin-releasing factor (CRF), ACTH, and opioids was ensured by hypo-, normo-, and(More)
For the corticotropin-releasing-hormone stimulation test the number of samplings and measurements are reduced to two--and the ratio between concentrations at 60 min and 0 min is calculated. The difference between the information given by absolute concentrations and ratio is negligible, but by using ratio, the influence of bias is eliminated. The test(More)
