167 Possible Causes for Acanthosis Nigricans, Insulin Resistance, Oligomenorrhea

  • Polycystic Ovary Syndrome

    Groups A and C showed increased frequency of acanthosis nigricans compared with Group B.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] After three months, a significant weight loss was recorded, hirsutism had decreased slightly and oligomenorrhea reappeared.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Affected women have marked insulin resistance, independent of obesity.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Obesity

    Obesity is a chronic disease that may lead to skin problems, including acanthosis nigricans, skin tags, hyperandrogenism, striae distensae, plantar hyperkeratosis, and candidal[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The aim of this paper is to analyze the pathogenetic mechanisms of insulin resistance development in pregnant women with varying obesity degrees in early and late gestation[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Complications of obesity include cardiovascular risks, hypertension, dyslipidemia, endothelial dysfunction, type 2 diabetes mellitus and impaired glucose tolerance, acanthosis[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Launois Syndrome

    The biological profile indicated high-atherogenic mixed dyslipidemia, high basal insulinemia (30 microU/ml), and multiple markers of insulin resistance (Reaven index, lipid[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] @article{Cojocaru2013MarkersOI, title {Markers of insulin resistance in a case of Launois-Bensaude syndrome.}, author {D{\ a}nuþ Cojocaru and Corina Dima Cozma and Paraschiva[semanticscholar.org] As in the study by Coughlin and colleagues, 8 we did not demonstrate an effect on fasting blood glucose, fasting insulin, or insulin resistance with CPAP.[nejm.org]

  • Familial Partial Lipodystrophy

    FPLD 2 should be considered in the differential diagnosis of diabetes, dyslipidemia, steatohepatitis, acanthosis nigricans and polycystic ovary syndrome.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Some females may display the features of polycystic ovary syndrome such as hirsutism, oligomenorrhea, polycystic ovaries and infertility.[orpha.net] The findings in FPLD indicate that defective structure of the nuclear envelope produces a phenotype of insulin resistance.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Cushing's Disease

    Hyperprolactinemia causes milk discharge from the breast (galactorrhea), menstrual irregularities (oligomenorrhea or amenorrhea) and infertility in women and impotence in[emoryhealthcare.org] In this case report, we discuss the effects of two years of ketoconazole treatment on diabetes regulation and insulin resistance in a patient reluctant to agree to surgery[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Cushing's disease (CD), a state of chronic glucocorticoid (GC) excess characterized by visceral obesity and insulin resistance, may be associated with increased systemic inflammation[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
