Background and aim: C-reactive protein (CRP) is a sensitive marker for systemic inflammation. In this study we aimed to investigate the relationship between high-sensitivity C-reactive protein (hs-CRP) levels and BMI, body fat mass and fat distribution in healthy subjects.Subjects and methods: A total 117 healthy subjects aged with 20–68 yr [normal weight (BMI 18.5–25.0 kg/m2, n:35), overweight (BMI: 25–30 kg/m2</sup...

The relationship between carotid intima-media thickness metabolic and anthropometric parameters in healthy subjects

Akay Hatice , Gokalp Deniz , Arikan Senay , Tuzcu Alpaslan , Bahceci Mithat

Background and aim: Carotid intima-media thickness (IMT), as assessed by B-mode ultrasound, is a commonly used clinical marker that reflects systemic burden of atherosclerosis and value of IMT at or above 1 mm at any age is associated with a significantly increased risk of myocardial infarction. On the basis of such findings, we aimed to clarify the relationship between carotid intima-media thickness and anthropometric and metabolic parameters in virtually healthy subjects.</p...

Aim: To examine the endothelial functions of patients with Sheehan syndrome (SS) and to eveluate the effects of hormone replacement treatment except growth hormone on endothelial functions.Subjects and methods: Twenty-four patients with Sheehan syndrome (PSS) aged 40.83±6.43 yr and 25 healthy control women aged 41.13±6.51 yr (C) were included. Endothelial functions were evaluated with high resolution ultrasonography (flow mediated dilatation:FM...
