Emerging Issues in Reproductive Health

Researchers will explore a second potential male birth control pill, sperm production recovery after performance-enhancing drug abuse, levothyroxine’s ability to improve the chance of live birth in women with thyroid antibodies, and hormone therapy’s effect on brain connections in transgender women.


Diabetes

The Society is unveiling its new Clinical Practice Guideline on treating older adults with diabetes. Researchers will also discuss how many older adults with type 1 diabetes are unaware of when they have low blood sugar, the technical challenges with implementing a new hybrid closed loop insulin pump (the precursor to the artificial pancreas), and how the hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) test misses many cases of diabetes.

Obesity

This press conference will examine the hormone oxytocin and its ability to weaken the brain’s reward signals for food, a hormone released from fat tissue and how it may play a role in obesity-related asthma, exposure to HIV before birth and its link to obesity later in life, and why teens who sit for hours in front of the TV while eating unhealthy snacks are at increased risk for heart disease and diabetes.

EDCs

The EDC experts in this news conference will present research on chemicals in household dust and fat cell development, air pollution and its impact on the male reproductive system, and ways exposure to the widely used chemical bisphenol A (BPA) during pregnancy can alter circadian rhythms.

Aging

The Society is debuting a new Clinical Practice Guideline for treating osteoporosis in postmenopausal women. Researchers will also cover older men with higher levels of sex hormones and why they have a lower biological age, how changing when you eat may prevent postmenopausal breast cancer, and why walking downhill after meals may have a positive effect on bone health in postmenopausal women.
