Introduction: Generously supported by IPSEN)-->Acromegaly increases cancer risk. We aimed to determine the prevalence and the predictors of tumors in acromegalic patients treated at our department.Design: We retrospectively evaluated 142 acromegalic patients (75 females (mean age 52.1±10.4 years and 67 males (mean age 49.4±12.7 years)) treated at university center, endocrinology outpatient clinic betw...

Low dose oral contraceptive use and the risk of thrombosis in polycystic ovary syndrome

Akin Safak , Cinar Nese , Aydin Kadriye , Akman Umit , Buyukasik Yahya

Background and aim: Oral contraceptives (OC) are the mainstay of long-term treatment for women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). OC use is associated with increased risk of venous thromboembolism. The aim of the present study was to determine whether treatment with a low dose OC induce changes on coagulation and fibrinolysis in women with PCOS.Materials and methods: Sixteen lean, normal-glucose tolerant patients with PCOS (mean age, 22.4±2.4 ye...

Effect of an oral contraceptive on emotional distress of women with polycystic ovary syndrome: a prospective study

Cinar Nese , Harmanci Ayla , Demir Basaran , Yildiz Bulent O

Background: The symptoms typically associated with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) such as acne, hirsutism, irregular menses, amenorrhoea, obesity and infertility are a major source of psychological morbidity and can negatively affect quality of life (QOL). Limited data are available regarding effects of different treatment modalities on emotional distress of women with PCOS.Objective: To determine potential impact of treatment on health-related quality...

Change in body fat distribution after total thyroidectomy in euthyroid patients and its relationship with serum adiponectin and leptin levels

Unal Mustafa , Cinar Nese , Dağdelen Duran Iffet , Yazgan Aksoy Duygu

Objective: Euthyroid patients undergoing thyroidectomy were reported to gain weight than their matched counterparts. The etiology is still unknown. Serum adiponectin and leptin levels are related to fat mass and thyroid hormones. We aimed to evaluate the influence of thyroidectomy on body composition, serum adiponectin, leptin levels in euthyroid obese and non-obese patients who underwent total thyroidectomy for goiter.Methods: We conducted a prospective...

Bisphenol-A and Pentocholorophenol Sodium Levels in Patients with Acne Rosacea

Demircioglu Deniz , Cinar Nese , Pektas Suzan Demir , Edgunlu Tuba , Unal Mustafa , Yazgan Aksoy Duygu

Objective: Rosacea is an inflammatory dermatosis. Telangiectasias, edema, erythema, and acneiform eruptions are the main symptoms. Several genetic and environmental factors have been linked to rosacea; however, the etiology of the disease is still not known. It is considered a systemic disease rather than a skin disorder. Endocrine-disrupting chemicals are substances people are exposed to through water, food, self-care products, and the environment. They interfere with normal ...

Differences in adrenocortical steroid response to ACTH in women with post-adolescent severe acne and PCOS

Cinar Nese , Cetinozman Fatma , Aksoy Duygu yazgan , Elcin Gonca , Yildiz Bulent O

Introduction: Increased adrenocortical production appears to be associated with acne and hirsutism in PCOS. However, the etiological role of androgens in the pathogenesis of acne per se is far from being clear. In the present study, we aimed to evaluate adrenocortical function in women with post-adolescent severe acne in comparison with patients with PCOS and healthy women.Design: The study included 32 women with post-adolescent severe acne, 32 ...

Regulation of visceral adipose tissue-derived serin protease inhibitor in overt and subclinical hypothyroid patients

Cinar Nese , Gulcelik Nese Ersoz , Aydin Kadriye , Akin Safak , Usman Aydan , Gurlek Alper

Introduction: Visceral adipose tissue-derived serine protease inhibitor (vaspin) is a novel adipocytokine which might exert an insulin-sensitizing effect. It is thought that vaspin mRNA expression may be a compensatory mechanism associated with obesity and insulin resistance. Given the fact that subclinical and overt hypothyroidism are known risk factors for insulin resistance, we aimed to assess the regulation of vaspin by thyroid hormones in humans.Met...

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...

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...

Periodontal disease in polycystic ovary syndrome

Dursun Erhan , Guncu Guliz , Cinar Nese , Harmanci Ayla , Ozbek Murat , Karabulut Erdem , Tozum Tolga F , Kilinc Kamer , Akalin F Alev , Yildiz Bulent O

Background: Periodontal disease (diseases of the tissues around teeth) and polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) are common disorders in women with a significant public health impact. Both disorders appear to be associated with diabetes and cardiometabolic risk. There are no published data regarding periodontal disease in PCOS.Objective: To determine periodontal status in women with PCOS compared to healthy women.Methods: We studied 25 ...
