Standards of Care for the Health of Transsexual, Transgender, and Gender-Nonconforming People, Version 7
ABSTRACT The Standards of Care (SOC) for the Health of Transsexual, Transgender, and Gender Nonconforming People is a publication of the World Professional Association for Transgender Health (WPATH).Expand
Endocrine treatment of transsexual persons: an Endocrine Society clinical practice guideline.
TLDR
This evidence-based guideline was developed using the Grading of Recommendations, Assessment, Development, and Evaluation (GRADE) system to describe the strength of recommendations and the quality of evidence, which was low or very low. Expand
ENDOCRINE TREATMENT OF GENDER-DYSPHORIC/GENDER-INCONGRUENT PERSONS: AN ENDOCRINE SOCIETY CLINICAL PRACTICE GUIDELINE.
TLDR
This research presents a novel and scalable approach called “evidence-based informed decision-making” that aims to provide real-time information about the impact of adverse events on children’s health and how they are measured and treated. Expand
Vitamin D and molecular actions on the immune system: modulation of innate and autoimmunity
TLDR
The hormonal form of vitamin D up-regulates anti-microbial peptides, namely cathelicidin, to enhance clearance of bacteria at various barrier sites and in immune cells. Expand
Vitamin D insufficiency among free-living healthy young adults.
TLDR
This study sought to examine the prevalence of vitamin D insufficiency in a group of free-living healthy young adults, consisting of mostly health care professionals, in Boston, Massachusetts. Expand
Alterations in vitamin D status and anti-microbial peptide levels in patients in the intensive care unit with sepsis
TLDR
An association between critical illness and lower 25(OH)D and DBP levels in critically ill patients as compared to healthy controls is demonstrated and a positive association between vitamin D status and plasma LL-37 is established, which suggests that systemicLL-37 levels may be regulated by vitamin Dstatus. Expand
AMERICAN ASSOCIATION OF CLINICAL ENDOCRINOLOGISTS AND AMERICAN COLLEGE OF ENDOCRINOLOGY CLINICAL PRACTICE GUIDELINES FOR THE DIAGNOSIS AND TREATMENT OF POSTMENOPAUSAL OSTEOPOROSIS - 2016.
TLDR
A large number of the patients in this study had atypical femur fracture and the results confirmed the need for further investigation into the mechanisms leading to and effects of these fractures. Expand
Prevalence of vitamin d insufficiency in patients with Parkinson disease and Alzheimer disease.
TLDR
This report of 25(OH)D concentrations in a predominantly white PD cohort demonstrates a significantly higher prevalence of hypovitaminosis in PD vs both healthy controls and patients with AD, supporting a possible role of vitamin D insufficiency in PD. Expand
Serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D concentrations are associated with prevalence of metabolic syndrome and various cardiometabolic risk factors in US children and adolescents based on assay-adjusted serum
TLDR
In children, given the negative outcomes associated with poor vitamin D status and MetSyn, consideration of vitamin D supplementation in reversing cardiometabolic risk factors appears to be warranted. Expand
Fortification of orange juice with vitamin D: a novel approach for enhancing vitamin D nutritional health.
TLDR
The fat content of milk does not affect vitamin D bioavailability and vitamin D fortification at 1000 IU/240 mL orange juice for 12 wk safely increased 25(OH)D(3) concentrations in adults. Expand
