171 Possible Causes for Buffalo Hump, Insulin Resistance

  • Endocrine Dysfunction

    Key features are central fat deposition resulting in a moon face, fat deposition over the clavicles and upper spine ("buffalo hump") and around the abdomen with production[] The pathogenesis of diabetes is still relatively unclear, but the main mechanisms include the loss of insulin secretory capacity and insulin resistance secondary to liver[] hump -increased facial hair in women Etiologies of Addisons disease -autoimmune -secondary insufficiency due to pituitary or hypothalamic disorder -withdrawal of steroid[]

  • Lipodystrophy

    It can manifest as a loss of fat in legs, arms, face or buttocks or even by an accumulation of fat in the belly, on breasts/chest or at the nape of the neck (buffalo hump)[] Measurements of insulin resistance IR was defined by the homeostasis model assessment of insulin resistance (HOMA) and insulin sensitivity by the quantitative insulin sensitivity[] Liposuction is often explored for the removal of accumulated fat around the back of the neck (commonly referred to as a "buffalo hump").[]

  • Obesity

    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[] Obesity is a serious health risk factor strongly associated with insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes; however, the underlying mechanisms associating obesity with insulin[] Serum insulin levels were measured using enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA), and insulin resistance was calculated using the homeostasis model assessment of insulin[]

  • Generalized Lipodystrophy

    hump[] insulin receptors exists and contributes to insulin resistance in the patient.[] Studies on insulin receptors of circulating mononuclear leucocytes indicated that insulin-resistant diabetes combined with congenital generalized lipodystrophy may be due[]

  • Familial Partial Lipodystrophy

    A “ buffalo hump ” can be observed between the shoulder blades. The arms and legs appear very muscular. In women, lack of fat in the buttocks is striking — flat hips .[] The findings in FPLD indicate that defective structure of the nuclear envelope produces a phenotype of insulin resistance.[] Some patients at the same time .gain excess fat at the the face, chin (double chin), and neck (Cushingoid appearance with buffalo hump).[]

  • Morbid Obesity

    […] to assess insulin resistance among morbidly obese subjects.[] Visceral adiposity is associated with decreased serum adiponectin levels, peripheral resistance to insulin and an increased risk of cardio-metabolic complications.[] To investigate 1) differences in cardiometabolic risk and HOMA of insulin resistance (HOMA-IR) across BMI categories (underweight to morbid obesity), 2) whether fit children[]

  • Corticotropin

    hump") Thinning skin that is easy to bruise Acne Being very tired Weak muscles, especially when using your shoulders and hip muscles High blood pressure High blood sugar[] To present a case of a young woman with new-onset diabetes mellitus resistant to insulin attributable to Cushing's syndrome caused by ectopic production of corticotropin by[] Induces insulin resistance, promotes a proinflammatory profile and stimulates UCP-1 in adipocytes in vitro .[]

  • Pediatric Hypertension

    Moon facies, truncal obesity, buffalo hump (Thyromegaly, Proptosis, hyperdynamic circulation…….. (Hyperthyroidism Signs of meningeal irritation,…………………… CNS Infections.[] We present updates on the complex interactions of these two systems with dietary salt intake in relation to obesity, insulin resistance, inflammation, and oxidative stress[] Children (and adults) who are overweight or obese are more likely to have risk factors for heart disease like hypertension, high cholesterol, diabetes, insulin resistance[]

  • Hypernatremia

    History and clinical examination, the latter demonstrating features of syndrome, e.g. hypertension, buffalo hump, striae, truncal obesity, plethora, are important clues.[] High-dose glucocorticoid, insulin resistance, and a postsurgical catabolic stress likely contributed.[] resistance and impairs hepatic neoglucogenesis [ 24 ].[]

  • Endometrial Hyperplasia

    The patient's striae, weight gain, and buffalo hump markedly improved, and further bone loss was halted.[] However, little is known about the prevalence of abnormal glucose metabolism and insulin resistance (IR) in EC patients.[] Insulin resistance might play a role in the occurrence of atypical endometrial hyperplasia complicating PCOS.[]
