Overdiagnosis of thyroid cancer

BMJ 2016;355:i631

Impact of Obesity on Health

Posted by Guest Author on 16 October, 2015

RCP CPD approved for 5 credits. Code 100727

http://doctorsacademy.org/Course/Obesity/Home.htm

Date: 14th November 2015 (Saturday)

Time: 0900 – 1630

Venue : Mayo Building, Salford Royal Foundation Trust

Fee: Free to all healthcare professionals. Places are limited and will be offered on a ‘first-come-first-served’ basis.

Aimed at: General Practitioners, Physicians, Surgeons, Specialist Nurses and Dieticians with interest in obesity and bariatric surgery.

Description: Currently we are amidst an epidemic of obesity that is likely to worsen over the years as predicted by the ‘Foresight report for tackling obesity’. The crux of the problem is an imbalance between energy intake and energy expenditure.

The physical and psychological drivers inherent in human biology mean that the vast majority of us are predisposed to gaining weight.

Obesity not only leads to multiple comorbidities such as diabetes, sleep apnoea, metabolic syndrome, cardiovascular risk, stroke, arthritis and increased risk of cancer but also results in poor quality of life and impacts longevity.

Hence there is an urgent need for awareness and action at every level and not least the medical fraternity.

The purpose of this study day is to increase awareness and to review the current evidence and practice in the management of obesity. The day will also feature the establishment of a voluntary organisation “Greater Manchester Obesity Awareness and Support” with a view to share our knowledge and to develop strategies to tackle the obesity epidemic.

Anabolic steroid-induced hypogonadism

Posted by Akheel Syed on 11 December, 2014

Androgen- or anabolic steroid-induced hypogonadism (ASIH) is no longer confined to professional athletes; its prevalence among young men and teenagers using androgens and/or anabolic steroids (AAS) is rising fast, and those affected can experience significant symptoms.

Excellent review article on a topical area of endocrinology of increasing complexity published in Clinical Endocrinology.
