Gestational diabetes mellitus and adiponectin levels

Culha Cavit , Gorar Suheyla , Serter Rustu , Demir Yavuz , Karakaya Pinar , Aral Yalcin

Aim: Hypoadiponectinemia is known to be associated with insulin resistance, diabetes and obesity. Since gestational diabetes is together with increased body mass index (BMI) and decreased insulin sensitivity, the evaluation of adiponectin levels in these patients is interesting. We investigated the relationship between adiponectin and glucose tolerance during pregnancy and after delivery.Materials and methods: We evaluated plasma adiponectin levels, insu...

A 49-year-old man with history of nodular goitre operation was referred to our clinic because of MTC in postoperative pathology. He had hypertension, postoperative hypothyroidism, no family history of thyroid carcinoma and sudden death. Laboratuary investigations showed high level of calcitonin (C) (763 pg/ml; normal<150), Carcino embryogenic antigen (CEA) (175 ng/ml; normal<2.5), normal thyroid function tests, parathormone, urinary catecholamines. Ser904 polymorphism ...

Obesity and adipocytokines

Gorar Suheyla , Culha Cavit , Demir Yavuz S , Turgut Ahmet T , Karakaya Pinar , Serter Rustu , Aral Sema , Aral Yalcin

Aim: Comparison of the parameters of obesity with the newly-defined adipocytokines in females applying to our clinic for obesity.Method: Demographical data of 36 obese females were determined. Cases were classified as obese and morbid obese according to BMI values. Biochemical parameters were measured for all the cases. Thicknesses of subcutaneous and visceral fatty tissues were measured on ultrasonography. Statistical significances were evaluated by app...

Background: Low plasma adiponectin concentrations are associated with diabetes mellitus. Resuts from animal studies suggest that adiponectin plays an important role in regulating insulin action. Leptin levels found to be low in patients with diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA). The recent studies showed that insulin replacement during DKA increased leptin concentrations. In our study, we aimed to determine the effect of insulin replacement on serum leptin and adiponectin concentration...
