Ghrelin paralleled adiposity increase after acromegaly surgery

September 11, 2014

The rise in total ghrelin found to accompany some remaining cardiovascular risk markers and adiposity increase in patients with acromegaly remission after surgery could be interrelated, according to research published in The Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism.  

“Our prospective study found increases in weight and central adiposity after surgery for acromegaly along with reductions in many, but not all, markers of cardiovascular risk,” the researchers wrote. “Ghrelin levels rose in parallel with the less favorable anthropometric profile, novel evidence of a possible relationship of ghrelin to the increase in adiposity that follows surgical treatment of acromegaly mechanisms and long-term implications of changes with acromegaly treatment.”
