Parathyroid hormone therapy for postoperative resistant hypocalcaemia

Akin Safak , Bayraktar Miyase , Gurlek Alper

Introduction: No consensus guideline on the treatment of hypoparathyroidism. Hypoparathyroidism is a disease characterized by hypocalcaemia and insufficient PTH. Conventional therapy includes calcium and active vitamin D supplementation, often in large doses.Case report: A 31-year-old woman presented with hypercalcemia. Serum calcium and phosphorus levels were 10.5 and 2.56 mg/dl respectively. The serum PTH level was increased (1619 pg/ml). The serum 25-...

Glutamic acid decarboxylase (GAD) and anti-tyrosine phosphatase (IA2) antibody positivity in newly-diagnosed Graves’ disease patients

Harmanci Ayla , Bayraktar Miyase , Hascelik Gulsen , Gurlek Alper

Background and aims: The type 1 DM patients who are GAD antibody positive have more risk of autoimmune thyroid disease than who are negative. In patients with autoimmune thyroid disease there is a significantly increased risk of anti-pancreatic autoimmune response as shown by increased GAD antibody positivity compared to normal population. However, the linkage between IA2 and thyroid autoimmunity is evaluated in one studied. Our aim is to evaluate the frequency of presence of ...

Retrospective analysis of adrenal ıncidentalomas: a single center experience

Akin Safak , Helvaci Nafiye , Dagdelen Selcuk , Yildiz Bulent Okan , Gurlek Alper , Erbas Tomris , Bayraktar Miyase

Background and aim: Incidentally discovered adrenal masses (adrenal incidentalomas (AI)), generally 1 cm or more in diameter, are mostly benign and asymptomatic and are often considered as nonfunctional tumors. The aim of this study was to perform the imaging characteristics, endocrinologic screening and histologic diagnoses of adrenal incidentaloma cases encountered in our institute.Methods: This retrospective evaluation of patients with AI includes 543...

Effects of L-thyroxine treatment on resistin and high-sensitive CRP levels in patients with subclinical hypothyroidism

Aksoy Duygu Yazgan , Harmanci Ayla , Cinar Nese , Yildiz Bulent Okan , Usman Aydan , Bayraktar Miyase

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...

Primary hyperparathyroidism and synchronous thyroid disorders: a single center experience

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...

Complementary and alternative medicine use in patients with obesity: an anthropological approach

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...
