Erkam Sencar Muhammed , Calapkulu Murat , Ozturk Unsal İlknur , Hepsen Sema , Ozbek Mustafa , Cakal Erman

Background: Hypoparathyroidism is an uncommon disorder of calcium metabolism characterized by hypocalcemia, hyperphosphatemia, and reduced level of parathyroid hormone (PTH). The most common cause of hypoparathyroidism is accidental damage to the parathyroid glands during thyroid surgery. There are no formal guidelines for hypoparathyroidism management. The main goal of treatment is to improve the symptoms of hypocalcemia, to keep the serum calcium within the low normal range,...

Background: Adrenocortical carcinoma (ACC) is a rare cancer that originates from the cortex of the adrenal gland. Although its exact etiology is not clear, it has been found to be associated with some hereditary cancer syndromes. Sometimes patients present with hormonal excess symptoms (virilization, Cushing’s syndrome) or local symptoms consistent with an abdominal mass. In ACC, computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) are preferred imaging modaliti...

Changes in thyroid hormones and free triiodothyronine-to-free thyroxine ratio in euthyroid patients with obesity in terms of different glucose metabolism statuses

Hepsen Sema , Akhanli Pinar , Erkam Sencar Muhammed , Duger Hakan , Bostan Hayri , Kizilgul Muhammed , Emre Arslan Ismail , Cakal Erman

PurposeThyroid hormones are known to have an essential role in the regulation of energy homeostasis and glucose metabolism. Considering to literature data, variations of thyroid hormones within normal ranges change in obesity and type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) in opposite ways. This study aims to evaluate thyroid hormone levels and fT3/fT4 ratio in different glucose metabolism statuses of euthyroid patients with obesity.Methods</p...
