    Nicholas Frank, in Robinson's Current Therapy in Equine Medicine (Seventh Edition), Equine metabolic syndrome (EMS) is a collection of endocrine and metabolic abnormalities associated with the development of laminitis in equids. The American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine consensus statement on EMS published in lists three major . a These breeds are overrepresented in surveys of horses with endocrine disease, which suggests a genetic predisposition, but further evidence has not been provided to date. b Equine metabolic syndrome is poorly characterized in donkeys because reference intervals for insulin tests are still beingFile Size: KB.

    Equine metabolic syndrome (EMS) is a characteristic collection of clinical signs and clinicopathologic changes in equids that places them at high risk for developing laminitis. Insulin dysregulation is the key feature of the syndrome. It is found in both horses and ponies and has also been recognized in donkeys. Affected animals typically are.   The other predominant endocrine condition that can lead to laminitis is PPID, which is caused by dysfunction of the pituitary pars intermedia, usually in aged horses. That portion of the pituitary.

    The endocrine system consists of a group of tissues that release hormones into the bloodstream for travel to other parts of the body. Most endocrine tissues are glands (such as the thyroid gland) that release hormones directly into small blood vessels within and around the tissue. Protocols to assess endocrine disorders (e.g., pituitary pars intermedia dysfunction, metabolic syndrome, and thyroid illness) are unavailable, and extrapolation from horse .

The equine endocrine system is a collection of small organs that produce hormones that travel through the bloodstream to distant sites in the body.

Specifically, this review will focus on metabolic diseases such as dyslipidemias and metabolic syndrome; endocrine disturbances such as pituitary pars intermedia dysfunction (PPID); and gastrointestinal disorders such as gastric ulcers, dental problems, and small or large colon by: 8.

ON THE METABOLIC TRAIL If you suspect a thyroid or other endocrine or metabolic issue, begin with your veterinarian for an accurate diagnosis. Then, review your hay, feed, water, and supplements to see if there are impurities, deficiencies, or excesses that might contribute to your horse’s symptoms, including iodine : Lisa Kemp.

Finally, Geor said that insulin resistance is the third indicator that a horse might be affected by EMS. Insulin regulates the glucose concentration in the blood and stimulates glucose storage in tissues. EMS horses, however, will have a decreased tissue response to insulin in addition to increased insulin secretion.

Some metabolic disorders are caused by an increased demand for a specific element or nutrient that has become deficient.

More recent research in horses with EMS has found that horses can have some of the same medical problems as people with metabolic syndrome. This may include: hyperglycemia.

When organs and glands over- or under-secrete hormones or when tumors affect an organ, cacophony happens. The two most common equine endocrine disorders are pituitary pars intermedia dysfunction (PPID, or equine Cushing’s disease) and equine metabolic syndrome (EMS).
