🎬 VIDEO: ‘Subclinical’ Cushing’s syndrome needs new name

In this video exclusive, Endocrine Today Editorial Board Member Maria Fleseriu, MD, FACE, professor of neurological surgery and professor of medicine in the division of endocrinology, diabetes and clinical nutrition in the School of Medicine at Oregon Health & Science University and director of the OHSU Northwest Pituitary Center, discusses why mild Cushing’s syndrome matters.

In the past mild autonomous Cushing’s has been referred to as “subclinical Cushing’s syndrome.”

“What is subclinical about a patient that has, for example, cardiovascular disease and osteoporosis?” Fleseriu said.

She describes how to screen for and treat mild Cushing’s syndrome in patients with adrenal incidentalomas.

🎬 Video: Growth Hormone Supplementation May Contribute To Successful Pregnancy For Women With Hypopituitarism

In this video exclusive, Maria Fleseriu, MD, professor of neurological surgery and professor of medicine in the division of endocrinology, diabetes and clinical nutrition in the School of Medicine at Oregon Health & Science University and director of the OHSU Northwest Pituitary Center, discusses management of hypopituitarism during pregnancy and an upcoming study of effects of growth hormone supplementation.

Successful in vitro fertilization and even natural pregnancy are possible for women with hypopituitarism, according to Fleseriu.

“Our job as endocrinologists is to make sure that we’re focusing on replacing all the pituitary hormones at the right level,” she said.

Fleseriu outlines considerations for assessing hormone levels and determining which should be supplemented — before, during and after pregnancy — for a healthy delivery and healthy baby. GH may be one of these, she said, despite its off-label use.
