Abstract. Rosmond R, Björntorp P (University of Göteborg, Sahlgrenska University Hospital, Göteborg, Sweden). The hypothalamic–pituitary–adrenal axis activity as a predictor of cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes and stroke. J Intern Med 2000; 247: 188–197. 
Hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis activity under resting conditions and cardiovascular risk factors in adolescents
TLDR
In an adolescent population, HPA axis measures under resting conditions are associated with a range of CVD risk factors and Clarification of the mechanisms underlying these associations in adolescence would be an important step in understanding the evolution of adult CVD. Expand
Activity of the Hypothalamus-Pituitary-Adrenal System and Oral Glucose Tolerance in Depressed Patients
TLDR
Findings support the hypothesis that hypercortisolemia may lead to disturbed glucose utilization in depressed patients. Expand
Prolonged hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis activation after acute coronary syndrome in the GENESIS-PRAXY cohort
TLDR
Many patients post-acute coronary syndrome have prolonged, marked activation of the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis, and late-night salivary cortisol co-associates with several cardiovascular risk factors. Expand
Alterations in the Hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal Axis in Metabolic Syndrome
TLDR
It has now been shown that inadequate cortisol secretion is associated with abnormalities in glucose, insulin, and lipid metabolism, including hypertension, bringing the importance of the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis in the control of human health to the forefront. Expand
Salivary cortisol levels are associated with outcomes of weight reduction therapy in obese Japanese patients.
TLDR
The present study demonstrates that the baseline morning salivary cortisol levels are significantly associated with the levels of an inflammatory marker, arterial stiffness, and successful weight reduction in obese patients, and could be a useful marker for assessing and managing body weight and CVD risk factors in obesity patients. Expand
Age-related changes in hypothalamic–pituitary–adrenal axis activity in patients with manifest arterial disease
TLDR
In patients with arterial disease, HPA axis activity showed reduced variability with older age, independent of cardiovascular risk factors. Expand
A confirmatory factor analysis evaluation of the coronary heart disease risk factors of metabolic syndrome with emphasis on the insulin resistance factor
Aim:  The goals of this study were: (1) to analyse the underlying associations between coronary risk factors and the metabolic syndrome and (2) to evaluate the construct validity of the variablesExpand

. (2003) is an interesting contribution to the debate on the role of the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis in human obesity. They report a strong association between high fasting 09:00 hExpand
The role of antidepressants in the treatment of abdominal obesity.
TLDR
Preliminary results indicate that serotoninergic agents decrease abdominal fat mass with improvements in related risk factors and may interrupt the vicious circle of a hyperactive HPA axis leading to increasing abdominal obesity and endocrine perturbations that, in turn, leads to progressive accumulation of abdominal fat. Expand
HPA axis hyperactivity and cardiovascular mortality in mood disorder inpatients.
TLDR
Assessment of HPA axis function measured with the dexamethasone suppression test in relation to CVD and CHD mortality in a cohort of 382 inpatients with mood disorder indicated that HPA-axis hyperactivity is a long term risk factor for cardiovascular mortality. Expand

Stress-related cortisol secretion in men: relationships with abdominal obesity and endocrine, metabolic and hemodynamic abnormalities.
TLDR
Interactions between diurnal cortisol secretion related to perceived stress and anthropometric, endocrine, metabolic, and hemodynamic variables seem to occur with apparently normal regulation of the HPA axis. Expand

TLDR
Understanding the basis of these changes, as well as the interrelationships between them, will contribute substantially to future studies of the causes of CHD, and ultimately form the basis for the clinical management of insulin-resistant individuals. Expand
Inhibition of cortisol secretion by dexamethasone in relation to body fat distribution: a dose-response study.
TLDR
It is concluded that men with an elevated WHR experience a decrease in the inhibition of cortisol secretion by dex, which could explain or contribute to the elevated sensitivity of their HPA axis. Expand
Endocrine and metabolic aberrations in men with abdominal obesity in relation to anxio-depressive infirmity.
TLDR
There is a subgroup with elevated BMI, WHR, and D in whom a blunted dexamethasone response is found associated with traits of anxiety and depression, conditions characterized by such an abnormality. Expand
Narrow hips and broad waist circumferences independently contribute to increased risk of non‐insulin‐dependent diabetes mellitus
TLDR
Narrow hips and broad waist circumferences independently contribute to increased risk of non‐insulin‐dependent diabetes mellitus. Expand
Distribution of adipose tissue and risk of cardiovascular disease and death: a 12 year follow up of participants in the population study of women in Gothenburg, Sweden.
TLDR
The relation between the ratio of waist to hip circumference and the end points of myocardial infarction, angina pectoris, stroke, and death was stronger than for any other anthropometric variable studied. Expand

TLDR
Demonstration of adrenal insufficiency requires various combinations of tetracosactrin adrenal stimulation tests, and hypoglycaemia or equivalent tests, if the cause is ACTH deficiency but the correct test can only be chosen to suit a firm clinical diagnosis. Expand
Abdominal adipose tissue distribution, obesity, and risk of cardiovascular disease and death: 13 year follow up of participants in the study of men born in 1913.
TLDR
Results indicate that in middle aged men the distribution of fat deposits may be a better predictor of cardiovascular disease and death than the degree of adiposity. Expand
Cortisol secretion in relation to body fat distribution in obese premenopausal women.
TLDR
It is suggested that women with visceral fat accumulation have elevated cortisol secretion due to an increased sensitivity along the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis, and that this may be causing their abnormal fat depot distribution. Expand
The Influence of Body Fat Distribution on the Incidence of Diabetes Mellitus: 13.5 Years of Follow-up of the Participants in the Study of Men Born in 1913
TLDR
Results from a prospective study strongly support previous cross-sectional findings indicating that not only the degree of obesity but also the localization of fat is a risk factor for diabetes. Expand
