This study was undertaken in order to evaluate the effect of an oral contraceptive containing 35 micrograms of ethinyl estradiol and 2 mg of cyproterone acetate (Diane-35) on carbohydrate and lipid metabolism in patients with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). Twenty three patients with PCOS were treated with Diane-35 for between 9 and 18 cycles without(More)
We studied the 24-h blood profiles of cortisol in obese and non-obese women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), for comparison with the levels in healthy women (controls). The levels of other hormones, such as androgens, which are known to be disturbed in PCOS, were also compared. Luteinizing hormone (LH) and androgen (testosterone, androstenedione and(More)
We have investigated the importance of the dopaminergic control of gonadotropin secretion by studying LH, FSH and PRL responses to L-dopa and bromocriptine in patients with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). Both L-dopa and bromocriptine administration were followed by a statistically significant decrease in LH in the hyperprolactinemic PCO patients(More)
This study evaluates the effect of an oral contraceptive containing 35 micrograms of ethinyl estradiol and 2 mg of cyproterone acetate (Diane-35) on hormone dynamics, clinical signs of androgenization and ovarian size in patients with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). Forty-six patients with PCOS were treated with Diane-35 for between 9 and 30 cycles(More)
In order to investigate the dopaminergic activity in diabetic women with secondary amenorrhoea we studied the response of prolactin to a dopamine receptor antagonist metoclopramide (MTC-10 mg i.v.) in three groups of women: 5 insulin-dependent diabetic women with secondary amenorrhoea, 5 insulin-dependent diabetics with normal menstrual cycles and 6(More)
A 28 year old female patient with Cushing's syndrome due to an adrenal adenoma also suffered from recurrent urinary infections (proteus), tonsillitis (streptococcus), permanent candidiasis and perimandibular abscess (Staphylococcus pyogenes). Suppression of cellular and humoral immunity was confirmed by in vitro tests. After successful right adrenalectomy(More)
Growth hormone and cortisol secretion were studied in 25 patients with insulin-dependent diabetes before (Study 1) and 2 weeks after improved glucoregulation (Study 2). Blood samples for serum growth hormone (GH) and blood glucose determination were collected at hourly intervals whilst blood samples for cortisol and C-peptide were collected every 6 h during(More)
The present study was undertaken in order to determine whether patients with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) have LH pulse frequency and/or amplitude higher than those in normal cycling women during the follicular phase, and, if so, to establish possible factors which might influence LH secretion in PCOS. The study was conducted on 14 PCO patients (aged(More)
To investigate the cause of secondary amenorrhoea in insulin-dependent diabetes gonadotrophins, sex steroid hormone levels and residual beta cell activity (C-peptide index) were estimated in a group of 43 women with IDDM. Among 26 women with residual insulin secretion, the C-peptide positive (CpP) group, 5 had secondary amenorrhoea (CpP-Am); among 17 women(More)
In order to evaluate effects of metabolic control on pituitary function in insulin-dependent diabetes exercise, hypoglycaemia (insulin tolerance test), thyrotrophin releasing hormone and gonadotrophin releasing hormone, tests were performed on 25 patients before (Study 1) and after 2 weeks of improved metabolic control (Study 2). Patients were sub-divided(More)
