25(OH)D vitamin D status and anthropometric parameters among patients hospitalized in geriatric department

Nowak Justyna , Jabczyk Marzena , Hudzik Bartosz , Zubelewicz-Szkodzińska Barbara

Introduction: Vitamin D deficiency is observed across all age groups and both sexes. Moreover vitamin D deficiency is common in elderly especially along elderly patients. Elderly people are prone to develop of vitamin D deficiency caused by various factors such as deceased dietary intake, impaired intestinal absorption, reduced sunlight exposure, impaired skin synthesis as well as impaired hydroxylation in the liver and kidneys. Vitamin D deficiency may leads to rickets, osteo...

Pentraxin-3 as a more sensitive marker of coronary artery disease severity than C-reactive protein

Szkodzinski Janusz , Hudzik Bartosz , Danikiewicz Aleksander , Pietka-Rzycka Anna , Lekston Andrzej , Zubelewicz-Szkodzinska Barbara

Introduction: Pentraxin-3 (PTX3) is an acute-phase reactant that shares structural and functional homology with C-reactive protein (CRP). However, unlike CRP, which is synthesized mainly in the liver, PTX3 is produced at the site of inflammation. It has been suggested that PTX3 plays the same role in the periphery that CRP does in circulation. PTX3 may represent a rapid marker for local inflammation.Methods: Fifty three patients with stable coronary arte...

Vitamin D as a biomarker of long of hospital stay in geriatric department – preliminary study

Nowak Justyna , Jabczyk Marzena , Hudzik Bartosz , Barbara Zubelewicz-Szkodzinska

IntroductionInadequate low serum of 25(OH) vitamin D leads to skeletal effect (rickets, osteoporosis, osteomalacia) and furthermore exhibits nonskeletal effects – increase the risk of cardiovascular diseases, type 2 diabetes, mental illness and many others. Vitamin D deficiency is associated with a severe morbidity burden and low functional performance among elderly patients. A long length-of-stay (LOS) among elderly patients is related to revere mo...

Association between cortisol/DHEA-S ratio and inflammatory indicators in patients with non-functioning adrenal incidentalomas

Kowalska Joanna , Zielen-Zynek Iwona , Nowak Justyna , Włodarczyk Aleksander , Hudzik Bartosz , Zubelewicz-Szkodzińska Barbara

Introduction: It is well known that DHEA and DHEA-S has and impact on lipid metabolism, cardiovascular system and others. De Castro et al. showed that cortisol/DHEA-S ratio was an independent predictor of long-term mortality in patients with sepsis. Chronic inflammation is an important factor in cardiovascular diseases development that reduce quality and life expectancy. CVDs are more common in patients with adrenal incidentaloma than in general population. Literature data on ...

Discordance between body-mass index and body adiposity index in classification of adiposity status in the elderly

Nowak Justyna , Hudzik Bartosz , Kulik-Kupka Karolina , Zieleń-Zynek Iwona , Kowalska Joanna , Zubelewicz-Szkodzińska Barbara

Introduction: The prevalence of obesity in elderly population increased. Obesity leads to increased morbidity and mortality as well as worsens quality of life in older individuals. Body-mass index (BMI) is the most widely used adiposity index. BMI correlates with body fatness but this index does not account for fat mass versus fat-free mass. Recently a new index of body adiposity the body adiposity index (BAI) was introduced. This novel index correlates well (in comparison to ...

Which of the anthropometric indicators is the most useful tool in the assessement of potential inflammation in patients with non-functioning adrenal incidentalomas

Kowalska Joanna , Zielen-Zynek Iwona , Nowak Justyna , Korzonek-Szlacheta Ilona , Hudzik Bartosz , Zubelewicz-Szkodzińska Barbara

Introduction: Chronic inflammation is an important factor in type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular diseases development. Studies demonstrate that body fat, estimated by anthropometric indicators, correlates with inflammation indicators in chronic diseases. Ipso facto, it seems reasonable to suppose, that there would also be a correlation between anthropometric parameters and both, old and new inflammation indicators in patients with non-functioning adrenal incidentalomas.<p c...

Does 25-OH vitamin D concentration correlate with adipocytokines inpatients with non-functioning adrenal incidentalomas – preliminary study

Kowalska Joanna , Zielen-Zynek Iwona , Nowak Justyna , Hudzik Bartosz , Danikiewicz Aleksander , Szlacheta Patryk , Zubelewicz-Szkodzińska Barbara

Introduction: Vitamin D has pleiotropic effect on human body. Several studies showed that vitamin D deficiency has an influence on inflammation status in endocrine diseases (PCO-S, Graves disease, autoimmune endocrine disorders) and could reflect body fat tissue contain. Both, resistin and leptin, show pro-inflammatory effect.Aim: The aim of the study was to asses resistin and leptin serum concentration and its relationship with 25-OH vitamin D concentra...

Adropin concentration correlates with selected anthropometric and biochemical parameters – preliminary report

Nowak Justyna , Kulik-Kupka Karolina , Zielen-Zynek Iwona , Kowalska Joanna , Hudzik Bartosz , Bedkowska-Szczepanska Agnieszka , Zyla Anna , Zubelewicz-Szkodzinska Barbara

Adropin, hormone playing an important role in carbohydrates and lipids metabolism, improves mainly the glucose homeostasis. It could also play a protective role in pathogenesis and development of cardiovascular diseases. The purpose of the study was to assess the adropin concentration and some parameters of nutritional status (BMI, WHtR, BAI, VAI) as well as biochemical parameters (fasting glucose and insulin, and lipid profile). 25 patients (84% of group was women, n...

Visfatin concentration and anthropometric/biochemical parameters in healthy individuals-preliminary study

Nowak Justyna , Kulik-Kupka Karolina , Kowalska Joanna , Zielen-Zynek Iwona , Hudzik Bartosz , Zyla Anna , Stanuch Beata , Zubelewicz-Szkodzinska Barbara

Visfatin (pre-B cell colonyenhancing factor) is a adipocytokine playing an important role in glucose homeostasis. High concentrations of visfatin are observed in obese people. Previous studies suggest that estimation of visfatin concentration could be a promising tool for predicting obesity or its metabolic consequences. The aim of the study was to evaluate the correlation between visfatin concentration, selected anthropometric parameters (BMI, WHR, BAI, VAI index) and biochem...

Could omentin concentration be an indicator of cardiovascular risk in PCO-S

Zielen-Zynek Iwona , Kowalska Joanna , Nowak Justyna , Kulik-Kupka Karolina , Korzonek-Szlacheta Ilona , Danikiewicz Aleksander , Hudzik Bartosz , Zubelewicz-Szkodzińska Barbara

Introduction: There have been described that about 50% of women diagnosed with PCO-S, present lipid metabolism disorders, insulin resistance and incorrect blood pressure. They suffer not only from fertility disorders, but also present a risk of metabolic complications such as: obesity, type 2 diabetes and hypertension, which increase diet-related cancers and cardiovascular risk.Aim: To explore if serum omentin concentration could be an indicator of cardi...
