Baser Husniye , Baser Salih , Kirnap Nazli Gulsoy , Sakaci Murat , Gursoy Gul

Introduction: Aminoterminal pro B type natriuretic peptide (NT-pro BNP) is the inactive degradation product of pro BNP. Thyroid diseases are known to have effect on NT-pro BNP levels. In this study, we aimed to determine possible changes in NT-pro BNP levels in patients with thyroid dysfunctions.Material and method: Fifteen patients with hyperthyroidism, 8 with subclinical hyperthyroidism, 12 with hypothyroidism, 15 with subclinical hypothyroidism and 35...

Background: Osteocalcin (Ost) is an osteoblast derived protein locally acting on bone formation. Ost could also have a role in regulation of glucose and fat metabolism. It has been shown that Ost can directly stimulate proliferation of β cells and have effect on secreting insulin, and can act on insulin sensitivity by cytokines. It was not fully investigated in gestational diabetes mellitus. The aim of our study was to investigate osteocalcin in Turkish gestational diabet...

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...
