Salivary Cortisol and DHEA are Inversely Correlated with Early Postnatal Growth and Blood Pressure in Extremely Preterm Children

February 5, 2019

Adrenal function links to early postnatal growth and blood pressure at age 6 in children born extremely preterm Author: Watterberg KL, et al. (2018), Pediatric Research. BACKGROUND: Low birth weight in term-born individuals correlates with adverse cardiometabolic outcomes; excess glucocorticoid exposure has been linked to these relationships. We hypothesized that cortisol and adrenal androgens would correlate […]

Low Salivary Alpha-Amylase Awakening Response Associated with Reduced Professional Efficacy

January 10, 2019

Reduced professional efficacy is associated with a blunted salivary alpha-amylase awakening response. Author: Landolt K, et al. (2018), Physiol Behav. ABSTRACT: The job demands-resources model (JD-R) has shown an ability to predict worker engagement and exhaustion, yet to our knowledge, research has not been conducted that assesses the JD-R model with physiological indicators of chronic stress […]

Cortisol Reactivity as a Predictor of Weight Gain Among Prenatally Drug-Exposed Girls

January 3, 2019

Cortisol reactivity and weight gain among adolescents who vary in prenatal drug exposure. Author: Armstrong B, et al. (2018), Pediatr Obes. OBJECTIVE: Low inhibitory control is linked with weight gain among youth. Inhibitory problems are associated with disruption to the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis cortisol response. Increased cortisol predicts appetite and weight gain (though may be gender specific). This study hypothesized that cortisol reactivity explains […]
