Ä°ntroduction: Gitelman syndrome is characterized with hypokalemia, hypomagnesemia, hypocalciuria, metabolic alkalosis and neurological symptoms like muscle weakness. The association of GS and type 1 diabetes is rare, only described in a few case reports. We report a patient with unusual combination of Gitelman syndrome, Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus whose presentation was erytrocytosis.Case: A 26-year old male was diagnosed as GitelmanÂ’s syndrome 5...

Introduction and aims: Subacute thyroiditis (ST) is a spontaneous remitting inflammatory disease of thyroid gland. Although there is no clear evidence for its specific etiology, multiple factors may responsible for this inflammatory reaction. Mean platelet volume (MPV) is a new important inflammatory marker that indicates disease activity. Aim of this study is to evaluate MPV value in patients with subacute thyroiditis.Materials and methods: Thirty-one p...

Thyroid hormones influence renal development, kidney structure, renal hemodynamics, glomerular filtration rate, the function of many transport systems along the nephron and sodium and water homeostasis. Patients with hypothryoidism can have clinically important reductions in glomerular filtration rate (GFR). 41 patients (mean age 31.5±11 years) newly diagnosed as Hashimoto thyroiditis with presence of high thyroid autoantibodies with gland heterogenity in ultrasound and a...

Pentraxin 3 (PTX3) is produced from several cell types in case of inflammation. PTX3 has been investigated in several autoimmune diseases. As Hashimoto disease is an autoimmune disease of thyroid, we investigated the role of PTX3 levels in patients with Hashimoto disease.Objective: The aim of this study was to investigate the relationship between PTX3 and autoimmune thyroiditis.Methods: The study subjects were classified as four gr...
