Brief Summary:

Background:

Endocrine disorders involve changes to glands that produce hormones. Hormones are released by these glands into the blood so they can direct the function of other tissues in the body. Researchers want to study people who may have endocrine disorders. They want to learn more about the conditions that affect endocrine glands.

Objective:

To study adults with a variety of endocrine disorders for research and physician education.

Eligibility:

Adults ages 18 and older who have an endocrine or metabolic-related disorder

Healthy volunteers 18 and older

Design:

Participants will be screened with a review of their medical records.

Participants will have a physical exam and medical history.

The length of the study and the schedule will vary by participant. Tests may include:

Blood and urine tests

Stool and saliva samples

Imaging studies: Participants will lie on a table while a machine takes pictures of the body. They may be injected with a substance to make their organs more visible in the pictures.

Tests of endocrine tissue function

Consultation with other specialists

Sleep study

Medical photographs

Participants may be treated for their endocrine disorder. This could include:

Surgery. If tissue is removed during surgery, it may be studied.

Radiation

Medicine

Participants may have genetic testing. This will be done with a small amount of blood, cells from a cheek swab, or saliva.

Condition or disease
Endocrine Disease

Detailed Description:

This protocol is designed to allow inpatient and outpatient evaluation of adults with a variety of

endocrine disorders for purposes of research and physician education in our accredited internal medicine endocrinology training programs. Participants will receive clinical care per standard of practice for their condition. Data collected from standard clinical practice will be retained for future research. The research-directed evaluations may include collection and retention for future use of blood, feces, saliva, or urine samples or evaluation of tissue that was routinely collected for clinical care. In some patients with endocrine disorders, laboratory or radiological studies will be performed to confirm a diagnosis or to aid in the management of the patient, using standard approaches in current clinical practice. In some cases, the patient will receive medical, radiation or surgical treatment for their disorder.

Layout table for eligibility information
Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years to 100 Years   (Adult, Older Adult)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Sampling Method:   Non-Probability Sample
Study Population
any adult with a potential endocrine disorder; the types of disorders may vary to ensure that there is an adequate case mix of diagnoses for the training program.
Criteria
  • INCLUSION CRITERIA:
  • Age 18 years or greater.
  • The possible disorder of the patient subjects must complement the case-mix in the IETP, as determined by the Principal Investigator. A log will be used to assure that the training needs of the teaching protocols are being met.

EXCLUSION CRITIERIA:

  1. Unstable patients and patients with severe organ failure, or those with a condition or medical treatment that may affect/limit the endocrine work-up and exhaust Clinical Center, IETP resources will be excluded if appropriate. Decisions will be made on a case by case basis by the investigators. For example, there is a weight limit for the interventional radiology table used for venous

    sampling.

  2. Inability of a subject to adhere to a proposed schedule of visits.
  3. Individuals must be able to provide informed consent.
