Lipid parameters during pregnancy

Mladenovic Violeta , Andjelkovic Marija , Gluvic Zoran , Mitrovic Milena , Macut Djuro

Introduction: The basic characteristics of metabolism in pregnancy are changes from anabolic to catabolic conditions with an increase in insulin resistance, moderate, reversible increase in lipid concentration in the blood, and accumulation of fat stores in the mother’s tissues. Lipid metabolism is essential for the development of healthy pregnancy, and fatty acids are a significant source of energy and a key element for membrane synthesis, while cholesterol, in addition ...

Variation of parameters of thyroid function during pregnancy

Mladenovic Violeta , Andjelkovic Marija , Gluvic Zoran , Mitrovic Milena

Introduction: The basic characteristics of metabolism in pregnancy are changes from anabolic to catabolic conditions. During early gestation, the fetus is dependent on maternal thyroid hormones that cross the placenta. Thyroid disease in pregnancy is a common clinical problem, at least 2–3% of women have thyroid dysfunction. Pre-conceptual education and appropriate diagnosis and treatment of thyroid dysfunction in early pregnancy are of great importance, with the aim of ...

Thyroid function in relation to pregnancy outcome

Mladenovic Violeta , Andjelkovic Marija , Gluvic Zoran , Djukic Aleksandar , Macut Djuro

Introduction: Thyroid disease in pregnancy is a common clinical problem, at least 2–3% of women have thyroid dysfunction, and it is estimated that about 5–20% of women of reproductive age suffer from autoimmune thyroid disease. Subclinical thyroid disease during pregnancy may be associated with adverse outcomes. In the first trimester, the ‘normal’ range for TSH is reduced to 0.1–2.5 mIU/l, and in the second and third trimester is 3.0 mIU/l.<p clas...

Pregnancy outcome in relation to a disorder of glucose tolerance during pregnancy

Mladenovic Violeta , Nesic Jelena , Andjelkovic Marija , Gluvic Zoran , Djukic Aleksandar , Macut Djuro

Introduction: Pregnancy as a state of insulin resistance can predict diabetes development in some women, and is associated with increased risk for adverse outcome of neonate and for mother.Aim: The aim of this study is to analyse pregnancy outcome in relation to a disorder of glucose tolerance during pregnancy.Matherial and methods: The study included 77 healthy pregnant women in third trimester registered in Center for endocrinolo...

Thyrotoxic periodic paralysis in young Caucasian

Simovic Nikola , Gluvic Zoran , Rasic-Milutinovic Zorica , Tica Jelena , Popovic-Radinovic Vesna , Vujovic Marina , Lackovic Milena

Thyrotoxic periodic paralysis (TPP) is uncommon complication of Graves’ disease mainly observed in young males of Asian origin. It is rarely seen among white hyperthyroid patients (0.1–0.2%), usually presented as lower extremities muscle weakness of sudden onset, probably cause by hypokalemia. Possible mechanism of hypokalemia is an increased sodium–potassium–adenosine triphosphatase pump activity with consequent massive shift og potassium from extracellula...

Body composition and bone mineral density in hemodialysis patients

Rasic-Milutinovic Zorica , Perunicic-Pekovic Gordana , Stojanovic Olivera , Tica Jelena , Popovic Vesna , Vujovic Marina , Gluvic Zoran

Aim/hypothesis: Chronic renal failure maintenance hemodialysis (HD) patients are at risk for low bone mineral density (BMD) and fractures. Parathyroid hormone (iPTH) plays a pivotal role in the pathophysiology of uremic bone disease, but in healthy population body weight and particularly body composition are more important determinants of bone mass.Patients and methods: We studied BMD (results were recorded as g/cm2) and T score using D...

The effect of body composition and iron status on insulin resistance in hemodialysis patients

Rasic Zorica , Perunicic Gordana , Tica Jelena , Popovic Vesna , Vujovic Marina , Gluvic Zoran

Background/Aims: High level of inflammatory cytokines was present within malnourished and chronic renal failure maintenance hemodialysis (MHD) patients, but there were conflicting data about the role of inflammation on development of insulin resistance (IR) in non-obese and overweight MHD patients.Methods: We selected 23 well-nourished and 20 middle- to moderate-malnourished, sex and age-matched, stable MHD patients, 23 male and 20 female, with median di...

Serum ferritin levels correlate with ultrasonography-determined liver steatosis severity in type 2 diabetes patients with NAFLD

Mitrovic Bojan , Samardzic Vladimir , Gluvic Zoran , Tomasevic Ratko , Obradovic Milan , Sudar-Milovanovic Emina , Isenovic Esma R.

IntroductionNon-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is a component of metabolic syndrome (MetS). Hence, it is frequently associated with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). The low-grade inflammation associated with NAFLD usually explained the changes in serum iron metabolism. This study aims to assess the link between liver steatosis severity and serum iron, ferritin, and transferrin levels.Material and methods<p class="abstext...

Ectopic thyroid tissue presented as left adrenal mass – a case report

Samardzic Vladimir , Gluvic Zoran , Lackovic Milena , Tica Jelena , Popovic-Radinovic Vesna , Vujovic Marina , Obradovic Milan , Isenovic Esma R.

Introduction: Ectopic thyroid tissue is a rare developmental abnormality with the prevalence of 1 per 100.000–300.000 persons in the general population. It is most commonly detected in younger women and presented as lingual thyroid. Here we report a rare case of ectopic thyroid tissue in the left adrenal gland.Case report: A 29-year old female without previous medical history was incidentally diagnosed with left adrenal gland mass detected on routi...

The influence of subclinical hypothyroidism on glucose levels

Radinovic Vesna Popovic , Milutinovic Zorica Rasic , Jevtic Jelena Tica , Vujovic Marina , Gluvic Zoran , lackovic Milena , Ilic Maja Stojadinov

Background: Recently many authors are questioning the existing of elements of metabolic syndrome (MetSy) in patients with subclinical hypothyroidism (SH). In this cross sectional study we observed glycemia, as an element of MetSy, in newly diagnosed patients with SH.Materials and methods: Seventy females participated in study. Among them there were 50 patients with SH, mean age 58.3 (±8.53), and 20 controls without SH, mean age 51.1 (±6.79). We...
