“Chronotype in Preadolescents and Type 2 Diabetes Risk”

Presented by:  Magdalena Dumin, M.D.

Pediatric Endocrine Fellow, The University of Chicago

Learning Objectives:

1.  Examine the association between chronotype and risk factors for developing diabetes in children ages 10-13 years.

2.  Determine if late chronotype in children is linked with metabolic syndrome.

 

“Idiopathic Hypercalciuria and the Trabecular Bone Score”

Presented by:  Disha Narang, M.D.

Endocrine Fellow, The University of Chicago

Learning Objectives:

1.  To evaluate whether patients with idiopathic hypercalciuria have low trabecular bone scores, corresponding with overall lower bone mineral density.

2.  Evaluate a preliminary analysis of whether history of fracture or IH therapy effects in IH patients affects TBS.

 

“Ethnic Differences in Trabecular Bone Score”

Presented by:  Rajesh Jain, M.D.

Endocrine Fellow, The University of Chicago

Learning Objectives:

1.  Discuss the emerging role of trabecular bone score (TBS) in fracture risk assessment.

2.  Discuss results of our cross-sectional analysis that suggests TBS may be less able to predict fractures in African Americans compared to Caucasians.
