an Endocrine Society Thematic Issue

 

Read our special collection of journal articles, published in 2019–2020, focused on transgender health and medicine! Curation of the collection was guided by Altmetric Attention Scores and Featured Article designations.

Nokoff and coauthors, reporting in JCEM, find that transgender adolescents have significant differences in body composition from cisgender controls. Wiik and colleagues demonstrate that a year of gender-affirming treatment led to robust increases in muscle mass and strength in transgender men, and maintenance of strength levels in transgender women. Chen and colleagues show that hormone treatment in transgender men and women does not adversely affect monitoring of vitamin D status. Jain and colleagues find that medroxyprogesterone acetate, used as gender-affirming treatment by transwomen, had minimal side effects and lowered testosterone levels. Van Velzen and coauthors, in contrast, find unfavorable changes in the lipid profile of transmen undergoing gender-affirming hormone treatment, although favorable changes in that of transwomen. Moravec and coauthors discuss in Endocrinology the ovarian and uterine consequences of exogenous testosterone in transgender men.

In Endocrine Reviews, Handelsman and colleagues discuss aspects of gender as it relates to athletic performance and propose a circulating testosterone threshold as a basis for allowing competition as a female. Mason and coauthors discuss the effects of androgens throughout the lifespan, including in transgender care. And in Journal of the Endocrine Society, Stevenson and colleagues discuss the need for improved training of  endocrinology fellows in transgender patient care, advocating the use of standardized patients for this purpose.
