Immobilization induced hypercalcemia

Koseoğlu Derya , Helvacı Nafiye

Introduction: Immobilization induced hypercalcemia, which was first described in 1941 by Albright, is an uncommon reason for hypercalcemia. It is associated with increased bone remodeling disorders and conditions associated with limited movement such as medullar lesions or vascular events. The exact mechanism of the disorder is unknown. Diagnosis requires an detailed evaluation to rule out other causes of hypercalcemia.Case presentation: A 24 year old ma...

Bronchogenic cyst mimicking adrenal mass

Köseoğlu Derya

Introduction: Primary retroperitoneal bronchogenic cysts are rarely seen. Bronchogenic cysts are mostly benign which originate from the remnants of the primitive foregut during the embryonic development.These lesions can be seen near or inside any organ that originates from the embryonic foregut. Bronchogenic cysts are most often found in the thoracic cavity, especially in the mediastinum. Except this many distant sites, such as abdomen, retroperitoneum,...

The effects of exenatide treatment on thyroid

Koseoglu Derya , Baser Ozden Ozdemir , Berker Dilek

Glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) is an increatin hormon with various glucoregulatory effects, and exenatide is a GLP-1 receptor agonist used in the management of type 2 diabetes mellitus. C cell hypertrophy was seen in animals treated with GLP-1 receptor agonists, but the effects of GLP-1 agonists on C-cell proliferation or neoplasia in humans have not been documented formerly. The aim of this study was to evaluate the impact of exenatide on structural and functional features o...

Celik Selda , Bulbul Elif , Erdem Esin , Gokmen Derya

Aim: Self-monitoring of blood glucose has an important place in ensuring diabetes management. This study aims to develop a reliable instrument to assess blood glucose measurement knowledge in diabetic patients. The purpose of the scale is to assess blood glucose measurement knowledge in diabetic patients.Method: The data were collected from 240 patients in the diabetes polyclinic of a training and research hospital between March and September 2022. The s...

Development and Validation of the Blood Glucose Measurement Competence Evaluation Form- BGM-CEF

Celik Selda , Bulbul Elif , Erdem Esin , Gokmen Derya

Aim: Self-monitoring of blood glucose has an important place in ensuring diabetes management. For diabetic individuals to measure their blood glucose level correctly with recommended frequency and technique, their blood glucose measurement technique, knowledge, and skills should be checked regularly with reliable measurement tools. This study aimed to develop a reliable instrument for assessing blood glucose self-monitoring skills in diabetic patients. The purpose of the scale...

PTH levels in vitamin D deficiency

Catak Merve , Koseoglu Derya , Baser Ozden Ozdemir , Berker Dilek

Introduction: High level of Parathormone (PTH) impair bone health by increasing the risk of fracture. The aim is to determine the threshold value of PTH elevation to accompany deficiency or failure of Vit D. This may be an important parameter in assessing bone metabolism in clinical practice.Material and method: 931 patients who were referred to the endocrinology clinic were retrospectively studied and 880 patients diagnosed with Vit D deficiency include...

Impact of overweight and obesity on cardiac diastolic function

Soysal Atile Neslihan , Baykiz Derya , Ekiz Bilir Betul , Bilir Bulent

Introduction: Left ventricular diastolic dysfunction (LVDD) is a common cause of heart failure in obese patients. The aim of this study is to evaluate diastolic function and its relation to body mass index (BMI) in overweight and obese patients by using transthoracic echocardiography.Material and method: A total of 133 cases were enrolled in the study. All anthropometric and laboratory measures were recorded. After measuring two-dimensional and M-mode ec...

Relation between Serum 25-hydroxy-vitamin D Levels and TSH receptor antibody seropositivity

Saglam Fatma , Koseoglu Derya , Berker Dilek , Guler Serdar

Objective: Vitamin D is an immune-modulator that may play a role in thyroid related autoimmunity. But the relation between Vitamin D and GravesÂ’ disease (GD) is not well defined yet. The aim of this study was to investigate the association of 25-hydroxy-vitamin D (25[OH]D) levels and TSH receptor antibody (TRab) levels in GD.Design: A total of 429 GD patients were analyzed retrospectively. 122 of 429 patients had vitamin D levels were enrolled in th...

46, XX male syndrome- testicular disorder of sexual differentiation

Köseoğlu Derya , Helvaci Nafiye

Introduction: 46, XX male syndrome–testicular disorder of sexual differentiation (DSD) is a rare condition, that was first described by la Chapelle et al. in 1964. The phenotypes of 46, XX testicular DSD include males with normal phenotype, males with genital ambiguities or males with true hermaphrodites. The diagnosis may be more difficult in adults with normal gender development than in children. Here, we present hormonal and cytogenetic conditions of an adult male who...

Paraoxonase is reduced in patients with GH deficiency: a risk factor for atherosclerosis?

Bayram Fahri , Baskol Gulden , Tanriverdi Fatih , Kocer Derya , Cakir Ilkay

Objective: GH deficiency is associated with an increased cardiovascular mortality. Increased oxidative stress has been associated with development of cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases. In the present study, we aimed to determine i) serum PON1 activities, an established lipid antioxidant, ii) MDA levels which are end products of lipid peroxidation induced by ROS and iii) thiol groups as an antioxidant for evaluating oxidative stress in patients with GHD before and aft...
