Cavusoglu Betul , Cakir Evrim , Ahbab Suleyman , Ataoglu Esra , Yenigun Mustafa

Extraadrenal perirenal myelolipom has been reported since 1980. In recent years, it has been reported at an increasing rate in different sites of the body ranging from the nasal cavity, mediastinum to presacral, paravesical region. However, it was the first reported case that perirenal multiple myelolipomas, each myelolipomas was about 5 cm in diameter, in associated with cortisol hypersecretion. A patient was an emigrant. She was followed in her country and was prescribed ket...

Atasoy Alp , Cakir Evrim , Ahbab Suleyman , Kayas Derya , Ataoglu Esra , Yenigun Mustafa

Aim: The etiology and underlying pathology of non-functional adrenal adenoma has not been clearly defined, yet. Blood pressure levels according to adrenal adenoma size has not been evaluated, yet. Therefore, we evaluated 24 hour ambulatory blood pressure levels in patients with non functional adrenal adenoma.Materials & Methods: We studied thirty newly diagnosed adrenal adenoma patients in a tertiary health-care center. They grouped in two categories...

Background: Subclinical hypothyroidism is a thyroid disease which encountered in practice, commonly. Thyroid hormones affect metabolic syndrome parameters including HDL cholesterol, triglycerides, plasma glucose levels, blood pressure and abdominal obesity.

Serum vitamin D levels in patients with gestational diabetes mellitus

Zengin Arif , Ahbab Suleyman , Ataoglu Esra , Turker Betul Cavusoglu , Cakir Evrim

Background: Insulin resistance and diabetes mellitus are associated with decreased serum vitamin D level. Therefore, we evaluate the 25-OH-vitamin D in GDM. This study was performed to evaluate the serum vitamin D levels in GDM patients.Methods: This study consisted of 38 patients with GDM who followed up in Haseki Training and Research Hospital’s Endocrinology outpatient clinic. GDM was diagnosed with 50 g (if postprandial 1 h >130–199 mg/...

Evaluation of metabolic parameters of gestational diabetics in postpartum period

Turker Fatih , Ahbab Suleyman , Ataoglu Esra , Cavusoglu Turker Betul , Cakir Evrim

Background: Gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) is the high blood glucose levels in pregnant women. GDM have high risk for type 2 diabetes mellitus after pregnancy. Therefore, we evaluated postpartum DM frequency and metabolic parameters of the patients who had GDM in this study.Methods: It was enrolled 40 patients, who had high glucose level during fasting or/and after meal and abnormal glucose level during OGTT in 24–28 weeks, in endocrinology out...

Keskek Sakir Ozgur , Saler Tayyibe , Kirim Sinan , Kursun Ozlem , Ahbab Suleyman , Bankir Mehmet , Pamuk Omer Arif

Inflammation has been shown in obese patients in previous studies. Sick euthyroid syndrome is an expected condition in case of inflammatory diseases. In this study, we aimed to investigate the frequency of sick euthyroid syndrome in obese patients without comorbidities and evaluate the association between obesity and inflammation. A total of 390 subjects were enrolled in this case-control study. The study group consisted of 200 obese patients without comorbidities and the cont...
