“We have identified very useful information about chronic stress, using a new device, which tells you if someone has been under chronic stress and has sustained damage from it. Changing life style and using nutritional supplements will relieve chronic effects of stress and the patient can return to normal” says Chrousos of the study conducted in Italy and coordinated by the Italian biomedial technology firm Biotekna S.r.l., maker of the BIA–ACC diagnostic device, between September 2009 and 2012.

The objectives of the study were to evaluate the association of body composition measurements using a novel, advanced bio–impedance device with chronic stress/inflammatory biomarkers in a large Caucasian population. A total of 160,768 subjects were included in the study. The findings suggested that advanced bio–impedance analysis may provide a useful, bloodless and rapid tool in the clinical setting, distinguishing patients with chronic stress and inflammation–related chronic non–communicable diseases, such as metabolic syndrome and its manifestations and sequelae, from healthy subjects. Interestingly, patients with medically unexplainable symptoms, such as chronic fatigue, dizziness, chronic pain etc, had distinct correctable alterations in their body composition.

Professor Chrousos has run the endocrin programs and has fostered the careers of over 60 distinguished, award–winning, world–class physician scientists. He has published over 1100 scientific papers, edited 29 books and has been cited over 64,000 times throughout scientific literature.

Professor Chrousos’ awards include: 1987 Richard E. Weitzman Memorial Award, the 1992 Superior Service Award, 1997 Clinical Investigator Award and Hans Selye Award, the 1999 Pharmacia–Upjohn International First Prize, the 1999 Novera Herbert Spencer Award, 2000 Henning Andersen Prize, 2002 Sir Edward Sharpey–Schafer Medal, 2004 Lifetime Achievement Award from the Int. Society of for Psycho–Neuro Endocrinology, Glasgow, The 2007 Henning Andersen Prize, and the 2008 Geoffrey Harris Prize in Neuroendocrinology.
