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

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 […]

Cortisol reactivity attenuates the association between PDE and behavioral problems

Prenatal Drug Exposure and Adolescent Cortisol Reactivity: Association with Behavioral Concerns. Author: Buckingham-Howes S, et al (2016), J Dev Behav Pediatr OBJECTIVE: To examine stress reactivity in a sample of adolescents with prenatal drug exposure (PDE) by examining the consequences of PDE on stress-related adrenocortical reactivity, behavioral problems, and drug experimentation during adolescence. CONCLUSION: Findings […]
