Serum irisin level in different thyroid dysfunction states and its relation to markers of muscle dysfunction

Halawa Mohamed Reda , Abdelsalam Mona Mohamed , Mostafa Bassem Mourad , Ahmed Amira Galal

Introduction: Irisin is a myokin secreted by myocytes responsible for transmission of signals from muscles to other body tissues. It improves systemic metabolism by increasing energy expenditure and has a significant influence on the body metabolism and thermogenesis. Thyroid disorders are characterized by a disrupted thermo-metabolic state and muscular damage, and the underlying mechanisms still not clear.Aim: To evaluate serum Irisin levels in patient ...

Cryoablation of goiter irrespective of thyroid profile

Hamed Mohamed , Mansour Sherif , Halawa Mohamed , Bahaaeldin Ahmed , Ibrahim Nesma , Ghoneim Ashraf

Introduction: Thyroid nodules are extremely common. By age 60, about one-half of all people have a thyroid nodule. Cryoablation is used in a variety of clinical applications, using hollow needles (cryoprobes). Cryoprobes are inserted into or placed adjacent to diseased tissue which is desired to be ablated.Objectives: To evaluate the effect of Cryoablation on the size & function of thyroid nodule, which may replace the need for surgery or radiotherap...

El Sattar El-Deeb Abd , Halawa Mohamed , Saad Ahmed , Sabry Inas , Mahdy Maram , Abd El Aziz Mohamed , Roshdy Nagwa

Background: Diabetic retinopathy (DR) is a clinically well-defined sight-threatening complication in type 2 diabetes. Angiopoietin 1 (Ang1) has been shown to promote endothelial cell survival without causing proliferation, stabilise endothelial interactions with surrounding support cells and can block the vascular permeability effects of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF). More recent data suggest that balance between these growth factors may affect vascular endothelial...

The association of vitamin D with peripheral neuropathy among prediabetic individuals and the effect of vitamin D supplementation

Halawa Mohamed Reda , Ahmed Iman , Abouelezz Nahla Fawzy , Hendawy Laila Mohamed , Abdelaziz Naira Hany , Mohamed Nagwa Roshdy

BackgroundVitamin D deficiency seems to be more prevalent among diabetic patients with distal symmetrical polyneuropathy. Besides, those patients have a lower pain threshold; there is a shortage of data concerning pre-diabetic individuals with peripheral neuropathy (PN).AimFirst, to study the association of vitamin D deficiency with PN severity. Second, to determine the effect of vitamin D supplementation on ...
