Uric acid is an important predictor of metabolic disturbances in obese women

Cikim Ayse Sertkaya , Bayraktaroglu Taner , Azezli Adil Dogan , Orhan Yusuf

Introduction: It was shown that a relationship between uric acid and cardiovascular diseases, and hyperuricemia is associated with systemic inflammation. But, determination of uric acid is widely available and inexpensive, it has been overlooked as a marker of systemic inflammation and metabolic disturbances. In this study, we aimed to evaluate uric acid value and its association with inflammation and metabolic disturbances in overweight and obese Turkish women.<p class="a...

Relationship between antropometric and metabolic parameters and parathyroid hormone levels in women

Cikim Ayse Sertkaya , Bayraktaroglu Taner , Azezli Adil Dogan , Orhan Yusuf

Aim: Increased levels of fasting parathyroid hormone(PTH) have been hypothesized to influence increased levels of body fat mass. Preliminary studies show that serum PTH levels are higher in obese than in non-obese young adults and decline with weight loss. In the present study, it was aimed to evaluate relationship between antropometric and metabolic risk parameters and PTH levels in Turkish women.Materials and methods: Analyses were performed on 710 Tur...

Bayraktarogl Taner , Cikim Ayse Sertkaya , Azezli Adil Dogan , Orhan Yusuf

Aim: Serum calcium levels have a relation glucose homeostasis and weight management, and controversies in findings. This study carried out relationship between serum calcium levels and various metabolic parameters in obese Turkish Women.Materials and methods: Subjects for this study were 3544 overweight or obese Turkish women with mean level of serum calcium 9.4 md/dl. According to mean calcium level, they divided group I having >9.4 mg/dl and group ...

Thyroid dysfunctions and serum creatine kinase levels in statins-using patients with hyperlipidemia

Bayraktaroglu Taner , Ozkaya Mesut , Kutluturk Faruk , Azezli Adil Dogan , Orhan Yusuf

Introduction: Hypothyroidism is a well-known cause of secondary dyslipidemia, and its link to atherosclerosis has been known for long time. The 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl coenzyme A (HMG-CoA) reductase inhibitors (statins) offer important benefits for the large population of individuals at high risk for coronary heart disease. It was aimed to invastigation the relations of the secondary hyperlipidemia included overt and subclinical hypothyroidism and increased serum creatine k...

Severe hypertriglyceridemia and triglyceride apheresis

Bayraktaroglu Taner , Ozkaya Mesut , Kutluturk Faruk , Azezli Adil Dogan , Orhan Yusuf

Introduction: Patients with extremely high triglyceride levels and associated lipemia are at high risk for acute pancreatitis. Hypertryiglycerideamia can be can be provoked when triglyceride levels exceed 1.000 mg/dl of acute pancreatitis.Materials and method: In 7 patients with hyperlipidemic pancreatitis was evaluated. In addition to the standard therapy, they were treated with triglyceride apheresis. Acute pancreatitis was diagnosed based on the prese...

Hyperthyroidism in molar pregnancy: rapid preoperative preparation by plasmapheresis and complete after evacuation

Azezli Adil Dogan , Bayraktaroglu Taner , Topuz Samet , Besisik Sevgi Kalayoglu , Orhan Yusuf

Human chorionic gonadotropin bears structural homology to pituitary thyrotropin. The extremely elevated levels of human chorionic gonadotropin in patients with molar pregnancy or other trophoblastic diseases can lead to hyperthyroidism. We describe a patient with molar pregnancy who had secondary hyperthyroidism prepared rapidly by plasmapheresis for surgery. After first plasmapheresis the clinical picture improved dramatically. Three subsequent plasmapheresis provided a 75.1%...
