Introduction and objectives: The aim of our study was to determine which characteristics of the uncontrolled diabetes are among randomly selected patients with type 1 (T1DM) and type 2 (T2DM) diabetes.Material and methods: A total of 194 diabetic patients were observed, 142 with T2DM and 52 with T1DM, recruted in outpatient clinic. Patients were divided into three groups according to HbA1c values: <7% (G1), 7–8% (G2) and >8% (G3). Statistica...

Do the association of phthalates and some parameters of obesity persist? Pilot study

Medic-Stojanoska Milica , Milic Natasa , Vukovic Bojan , Bosic-Zivanovic Dragana , Tomic-Naglic Dragana , Stokic Edita , Benc Damir , Mitrovic Milena , Curic Nikola

Background: Phthalates present endocrine disruptors widely used as plasticisers, solvents and additives in many consumer products. Experimental data and human cross-sectional studies suggest association of phthalates and obesity. This study focused to association between urinary levels of some phthalate metabolites and BMI and waist circumference.Methods: We recruited 87 obese persons (44 females and 43 males), age 38.57±8.14 years and 103 healthy c...

The coexistence of primary hyperparathyroidism with different auto-antibodies and autoimmune diseases

Novakovic-Paro Jovanka , Icin Tijana , Bajkin Ivana , Dejanovic Bozidar , Stepanovic Kristina , Vukovic Bojan , Benc Damir , Tomic-Naglic Dragana , Pejin Radoslav , Milankov Andrijana , Medic-Stojanoska Milica

Introduction: The coexistence of primary hyperparathyroidism with autoimmune diseases is described very rarely in the literature so far. There are only few cases of immune-mediated hyperparathyroidism, associated with anti-calcium- sensing receptor autoantibodies, frequently in context with other immune diseases. Spontaneous remission of primary hyperparathyroidism in anti-TNF therapy of psoriatic arthritis has also been described in one case. Prevalence of positive antithyroi...

Introduction: Bisphosphonates are commonly used in the treatment of osteoporosis. The aim was to determine the effect of bisphosphonate therapy for osteoporosis on bone mineral density (BMD) depending on the Dolga index.Materials and methods: The study included 36 postmenopausal women with osteoporosis. BMD was measured by DXA of the spine and hip before treatment and 2 years after starting bisphosphonate therapy. Parameters of bone turnover: osteocalcin...
