Can dehydroepiandrosterone-sulphate be a new diagnostic parameter in male patients with idiopathic hypogonadotropic hypogonadism?

Cadirci Kenan , Carlioglu Ayse , Durmaz Senay

DHEA and its sulphate derivative DHEA-sulphate (DHEA-s) are major androgen hormones of adrenal origin. The purpose of this study was to investigate DHEA-s levels in male patients with idiopathic hypogonadotropic hypogonadism (IHH) and to determine whether DHEA-s levels are a useful marker in the diagnosis of hypogonadotropic hypogonadism. 91 subjects, 31 male patients diagnosed with IHH (mean age 19.7±2.6 years) and 60 healthy males (mean age 20.7±2.6 years) as a con...

Polycystic ovary syndrome and euthyroid hashimoto’s thyroiditis: possible influence of thyroid autoantibodies

Utlu Mustafa , Timur Ozge , Carlioglu Ayse

Thyroid disorders and polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) are two of the most common endocrine disorders in general population. Autoimmune thyroid diseases are common autoimmune disorders that affect about 5% to 20% of women in childbearing age. In this study, we evaluate the comorbidity rate of euthyroid Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis (HT) in PCOS patients and possible influence of thyroid autoantibodies on clinical and laboratory findings of PCOS. This study includes 285 PCOS pat...

Is thiol/disulfide homeostasis related to parity and gravidity in gestational diabetes?

Yildiz Faruk , Bicer Cemile , Senyurt Mahmut , Alisik Murat , Carlioglu Ayse

Purpose: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the relation gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) and the thiol/disulfide balance, used as a marker of oxidative stress, by measuring that exchange using a novel technique.Material/Methods: Thirty one subjects diagnosed with GDM and 30 healthy pregnant women were included in the study. Thiol/disulfide homeostasis concentrations were measured by a newly developed method in this study. After native thiol, t...

Our cases of familial hypocalciuric hypercalcemia

Bayrak Muharrem , Cadirci Kenan , Carlioglu Ayse , Sevimli Hakan , Durmaz Senay

Familial hypocalciuric hypercalcemia is an inherited disease caused by inactivating heterozygous mutations in the gene encoding calcium-sensitive receptors, that affects calcium metabolism and generally follows a benign course. It must be also considered in the differential diagnosis of hyperparathyroidism. Six patients presenting to our internal diseases clinic between January, 2010, and June, 2015, were evaluated in terms of clinical and biochemical parameters. The youngest ...

Dyslipidemia in young women with polycystic ovary syndrome

Ayhan Mehmet Emin , Durmaz Senay Arikan , Carlioglu Ayse , Demirelli Selami

Introduction and aims: Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a frequent endocrinopathy among with young women. It is known that insulin resistance is encountered in the vast majority of the women with PCOS and hence the risk of type 2 diabetes mellitus and coronary artery disease are increased. These cardiac and metabolic risk increments may also associated with hyperandrogenemia and dyslipidemia. The metabolic changes of lipid profiles in young women with PCOS are not completel...

Increased levels of bisphenol a in euthyroid autoimmun thyroiditis

Ademoglu Esra , Keskin Muge , Gorar Suheyla , Carlioglu Ayse

Introduction: Autoimmune thyroiditis (AIT), also called Hashimoto thyroiditis or chronic lymphocytic thyroiditis is characterized by destruction of the thyroid gland involving apoptosis of thyroid epithelial cells. It usually presents as euthyroidism or subclinically hypothyroidism, rarely as overt hypothyroidism. The cause of Hashimoto’s thyroiditis is thought to be a combination of genetic susceptibility and environmental factors. Bisphenol A (BPA), an endocrine-disrupt...

The effects of octreotide acetate long-acting repeatable on mean platelet volume in acromegaly: octreotidelar may have a detrimental effect on MPV, a new indicator of atherosclerosis

Durmaz Senay Arikan , Carlioglu Ayse , Ayhan Emin , Macunluoglu Beyza

Introduction and objective: Cardiovascular mortality is high in acromegaly. Our aim in this study was to determine the levels of the new cardiovascular marker in active acromegaly patients, the mean platelet volume (MPV) values before and after octreotide acetate long-acting repeatable treatment.Material and methods: Thirty-six patients with active acromegaly who presented at the Endocrinology Department (mean age 46.0±14.0 years and mean BMI: 30.4&...

Increased mean platelet volume in papillary thyroid cancer

Carlioglu Ayse , Simsek Eda , Durmaz Senay Arikan , Ozmen Hilal Kiziltunc

Introduction and objective: Platelets play an important role in the development of thrombotic events. Increase of mean platelet volume (MPV) may indicate pre-thrombotic conditions as a new cardiovascular marker. Larger platelets have been reported to be metabolically more active than smaller ones. Our aim of present study is to evaluate MPV levels in patients with papillary thyroid cancer.Materials and methods: Forty-seven patients with newly diagnosis m...

Thyroid autoimmunity in patients with empty sella syndrome

Arslan Abdulmuttalip , Senyurt Mahmut , Carlioglu Ayse , Durmaz Senay

Purpose: The aim of this study was to evaluate the association and frequency of thyroid autoimmunity in patients with empty sella syndrome and to evaluate the possible effects of thyroid auto-antibodies on clinical and laboratory findings in patients with empty sella syndrome.Materials and methods: We recruited 93 patients (female) and 22 male patients (mean age 55.51±14.82) who were admitted to the Endocrinology Clinic of Erzurum Regional Training ...
