27 Possible Causes for Cortisol Increased, Supraclavicular Fat Pads

  • Morbid Obesity

    OBJECTIVES: Pregnancy outcomes and infant growth and development are influenced by various prenatal and postnatal factors. Gestational weight gain (GWG) is an important indicator of pregnancy management and outcomes. Information about the interaction between prenatal obesity and depression on GWG among[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Cushing's Disease

    In the corticotropin-releasing hormone (CRH) test, ACTH and cortisol increased only by 28%.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Individuals with Cushing syndrome can develop moon facies, facial plethora, supraclavicular fat pads, buffalo hump, truncal obesity, and purple striae, as shown in the image[emedicine.medscape.com] fat pads (buffalo hump) Usually, very slender distal extremities and fingers Muscle wasting and weakness are present.[merckmanuals.com]

  • Adrenocortical Carcinoma

    From the 24-h urine collection sample, urine aldosterone and urine cortisol levels were greatly increased.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] pads.[symptoma.com] Symptoms of increased cortisol or other adrenal gland hormones may include: Fatty, rounded hump high on the back just below the neck ( buffalo hump ) Flushed, rounded face[medlineplus.gov]

  • Obesity

    The increasing accumulation of visceral fat in adult life is related to gender, but the effects of cortisol, decreasing GH, and changing testosterone levels are important[doi.org] Some of the endocrine changes associated with protein-energy malnutrition, such as decreased plasma IGF-1 levels, increased plasma cortisol and a relative reduction in plasma[doi.org] Cytokines (IL-6) ACTH/cortisol Sympathetic nervous system activity Obesity shortens life The net effect of the increased fat mass and the enlarged fat cells is a decrease[doi.org]

  • Iatrogenic Cushing's Disease

    Lab investigation Increased total serum cortisol Increased free cortisol Decreased serum ACTH Hypothesis: Iatrogenic Cushing’s syndrome Additional Learning issues: Pathophysiology[medatrio.com] Individuals with Cushing syndrome can develop moon facies, facial plethora, supraclavicular fat pads, buffalo hump, truncal obesity, and purple striae, as shown in the image[emedicine.medscape.com] Common: centripetal obesity with dorsocervical and supraclavicular fat pads, facial plethora and "moon face," fatigue, hyperglycemia, hypertension, mood lability, easy bruisability[hopkinsguides.com]

  • Adrenal Cushing Syndrome

    Increased cortisol levels send a signal to the pituitary gland to decrease ACTH secretion, in order to maintain cortisol at normal levels.[csrf.net] fat pad, sometimes known as a 'buffalo hump' purple skin striae easy skin bruising acanthosis nigricans proximal myopathy depression and other mood disorders osteoporosis[radiopaedia.org] Individuals with Cushing syndrome can develop moon facies, facial plethora, supraclavicular fat pads, buffalo hump, truncal obesity, and purple striae, as shown in the image[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Adrenal Cortex Hormone

    Cortisol increases as intense exercise is prolonged (Di Pasquale, 1992c).[exrx.net] Healthy amounts of cortisol increase our focus; however, chronic overexpression of cortisol has many scientists worried for fear of memory interference, bone density loss,[biologydictionary.net] The principal glucocorticoid is cortisol, which increases blood [glossary term:] glucose levels.[training.seer.cancer.gov]

  • Adrenal Cortical Adenoma

    These androgen secreting tumours frequently present in women with increased facial hair growth (hirsutism), irregular periods and infertility sometimes with masculinization[ensat.org] The association with facial rounding (“moon face”) and supraclavicular and dorsocervical fat pads (“buffalo hump”) is less strong as these can be seen in obesity from other[cancertherapyadvisor.com] Other symptoms include weakness, muscle cramps, increased thirst, and increased frequency of urination.[oncolink.org]

  • Cushing Syndrome

    In vitro, cortisol increases lipoprotein lipase in adipose tissues and particularly in visceral fat where lipolysis is activated, resulting in the release of free fatty acids[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Features more specific to Cushing's syndrome include proximal muscle weakness, supraclavicular fat pads, facial plethora, violaceous striae, easy bruising, and premature osteoporosis[bestpractice.bmj.com] Cortisol increases our blood pressure and blood glucose levels and diabetes is one complication which can result from untreated Cushing’s syndrome.[diabetes.co.uk]

  • ACTH-Independent Cushing Syndrome

    […] levels 4.4 ug/dL Can be measured in saliva samples Urinary excretion of free cortisol is increased 24-hr urine sample, and is expressed as a ratio of micrograms of cortisol[slideshare.net] fat pad, sometimes known as a 'buffalo hump' purple skin striae easy skin bruising acanthosis nigricans proximal myopathy depression and other mood disorders osteoporosis[radiopaedia.org] Glucose intolerance occurs because excess cortisol causes insulin resistance and increased gluconeogenesis and glycogen storage.[wikilectures.eu]
