Introduction: Increased adrenocortical production appears to be associated with acne and hirsutism in PCOS. However, the etiological role of androgens in the pathogenesis of acne per se is far from being clear. In the present study, we aimed to evaluate adrenocortical function in women with post-adolescent severe acne in comparison with patients with PCOS and healthy women.Design: The study included 32 women with post-adolescent severe acne, 32 ...

Objective: Nesfatin was found to be co-localized with insulin in pancreatic β cells and its levels were decreased in type 2 diabetic patients. In order to investigate the role of nesfatin in carbohydrate metabolism, we measured baseline nesfatin-1 levels and its response to glucose load in patients with impaired glucose tolerance (IGT) and in healthy subjects.Subjects and methods: Fourteen patients with IGT and, 13 age and body mass index matched co...

Background: Subclinical hypothyroidism (SH) is an endocrine disorder defined by increased thyrotropin (TSH) levels associated with normal free thyroxine (fT4) and free triiodothyronine (fT3). Resistin is secreted from the adipose tissue and is reported to be associated with insulin resistance and/or inflammation. High-sensitive CRP (hs-CRP) is a reliable marker of inflammation. Data related to levels of resistin and hS-CRP in SH is limited.<p class="a...

Gedik Arzu , Aksoy Duygu Yazgan , Harmanci Ayla , Yildiz Bulent Okan , Bayraktar Miyase

Background: High association of concomitant thyroid and parathyroid disorders has been reported. The aim of this study was to determine the prevalence and characteristics of thyroid disorders associated with primary hyperparathyroidism (PHPT) in Turkey, a country with mild iodine deficinency.Material and method: We retrospectively reviewed the records of patients diagnosed with PHPT between 1980 and 2007 at our clinic and analyzed the data related to thy...

Aksoy Duygu Yazgan , Cinar Nese , Levendoglu Fuat , Canikli Yasemin , Yildiz Bulent Okan , Bayraktar Miyase , Usman Aydan , Ilbars Zafer

Introduction: Complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) is a group of diverse medical and health care systems, practices, and products that are not presently considered to be part of conventional medicine. For most of CAM, there are key questions that are yet to be answered through well-designed scientific studies. Obesity is one of the chronic health disorders which is difficult to deal and most of the obese patients are unable to lose or keep weight with diet, exercise or...
