Evaluation of Patients With Endocrine-Related Conditions
Evaluation of Patients With Endocrine-Related Conditions

This study will evaluate patients with a variety of endocrine disorders in order to 1) learn more about conditions that affect the endocrine glands (glands that secrete hormones) and 2) to train physicians in endocrinology.

Patients of all ages with endocrine-related conditions may be eligible for evaluation under this protocol. Those enrolled may be required to provide blood, saliva, urine or stool samples, and to undergo ultrasound examination of the thyroid gland, ovaries or testes, adrenal glands or other parts of the body. Laboratory or X-ray studies may be done for diagnostic or treatment purposes. In some cases, patients will receive medical or surgical treatment for their disorder. Patients and family members of patients with a hereditary disorder may be asked to provide a blood sample for genetic analysis.

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 endocrinology training programs. The research-directed evaluations may include blood, saliva, or urine samples, or evaluation 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. The purpose of these evaluations or treatments to support our clinical training or research missions.

EXCLUSION CRITERIA:

  • Unstable patients and patients with severe organ failure that may affect/limit the endocrine work-up and exhaust Clinical Center and/or NICHD resources will be excluded if appropriate. Decisions will be made on a case by case basis by investigators.
  • Subjects who are unable to provide informed consent will not be accrued; however, if patients have previously given consent, they will continue to be seen for ongoing clinical care. If they require medically-indicated procedures, we will follow NIH policy regarding obtaining consent from next of kin if they have not indicated a medical decision maker.
  • Minor subjects will not be accrued; they will be referred to NICHD protocols or other NIDDK protocols for evaluation of eligibility.
  • Prisoners will not be recruited. If a subject becomes incarcerated during the study, s/he may continue to participate so as to not compromise medical care.
