Introduction: Osteoporosis is a disease that is characterized by bone mass loss and deterioration in bone micro-architecture. One of the most important risk factors is dietary habits. The effects of the amount of calcium intake via eating, and low calcium consumption on the development of osteoporosis is still an active research area. The intestinal absorption of calcium and its renal excretion are still not understood very well. Even though the effects of carbohydrates on cal...

Introduction: Prolactinomas are thought to arise from the proliferation of a mutated pituitary stem cell which is subjected to the growth stimuli of several permissive factors, although the pathogenetic mechanisms underlying the tumorigenesis still remain unclear. The present study aimed to investigate the role of p16 (540C→G and 580C→T) and MDM2 (SNP309T→G) gene polymorphisms in tumorigenesis and characteristics of prolactinoma.Methods...

Introduction: Oxidative stress is one of the possible mechanisms involved in the pathogenesis of the obesity-related metabolic complication. In this study, we aimed to investigate effect of weight loss with bariatric surgery on IMA, high sensitive C-reactive protein (hs-CRP), serum total antioxidant status (TAS), total oxidant status (TOS) levels.Materials and methods: In this prospective study, plasma IMA, hs-CRP, TAS and TOS levels were measured before...

Objective: To evaluate the level of awareness among patients with thyroid disorders presenting to our hospital and determine patient profiles.Design: The present study was conducted using a survey technique on patients aged between 18 and 75 years, who were admitted to our hospital for follow-up between December 1, 2014 and December 31, 2014. The pregnant women and those with a thyroid malignancy and patients who did not consent for the study were exclud...
