Djurovic Marina , Popovic Dragan , Jankovic Dragana , Jemuovic Zvezdana , Petakov Milan

Presumption, nausea, bowel distension, abdominal pain and early satiety are very common in patients with Anorexia nervosa (AN). These problems may give rise to significant medical complications and may contribute to increased difficulties with refeeding and weight restoration. The aim of our study was to evaluate the influence of gatrointestinal treatment on weight gain in AN patients. Esophagogastroduodenoscopy with gastric mucose biopsy were performed in 19 AN patients (DSM-...

Calcitonin response to calcium infusion test in patients with primary hyperparathyroidism

Jemuovic Zvezdana , Djurovic Marina , Pekic Sandra , Miljic Dragana , Stojanovic Marko , Doknic Mirjana , Muzurovic Emir , Petakov Milan

Introduction: Primary hyperparathyroidism (PHPT) is disorder of one or more parathyroid glands, characterized by inadequately increased PTH secretion, almost always followed by hypercalcemia. Calcitonin, secreted by parafollicular C-cells in thyroid gland, is hypocalcemic hormone which partly acts as physiological antagonist of PTH.Aim: To evaluate calcitonin response in calcium infusion test in patients with primary hyperparathyroidism.<p class="abs...

Depression and anxiety in hashimoto thyroiditis after long-term levothyroxine replacement

Djurovic Marina , Pereira Alberto , Jemuovic Zvezdana , Vasovic Olga , Pavlovic Dragan , Petakov Milan , Miljic Dragana , Damjanovic Svetozar

Introduction: Thyroid dysfunction may cause various psychiatric symptoms and disturbances. In addition, many factors affect the variable responses to hormone replacement. Many patients treated for Hashimoto thyroiditis(HT) report persistent impairments in general well-being despite long-term L-thyroxine (LT4) replacement and restoration of biochemical euthyroidism.Aim: To investigate the prevalence of depression and anxiety in patients with HT on long-te...

Quality of life in primary hypothyroidism after long-term levothyroxine replacement

Djurovic Marina , Pereira Alberto , Vasovic Olga , Jemuovic Zvezdana , Pavlovic Dragan , Petakov Milan , Salak Biljana , Damjanovic Svetozar

Introduction: There is an increasing awareness for intrinsic imperfections of endocrine replacement therapy affecting general well-being in the long-term. For thyroid hormone, many factors affect the variable responses to hormone replacement, like common genetic variations in deiodinase and thyroid hormone transport proteins, and the inability to provide adequate individual combined T4 and T3 therapy. Despite levothyroxine (L-T4)...

Metabolic syndrome and cardiovascular risk in frail elderly people

Vasovic Olga , Lalic Katarina , Trifunovic Danijela , Jemuovic Zvezdana , Djurovic Marina Nikolic

Introduction: Objective of this study was to examine the importance of metabolic syndrome (MetS) as a predictor of cardiovascular mortality in frail elderly people.Methods: Participants of the study were 253 community dwelling elderly aged 65–99 years. It was a prospective study with 32 months follow-up period. Patients were divided into four main groups according to the presence of MetS and prior major cardiovascular event (MACE): group A – pa...

Metabolic phenotype in acromegaly

Djurdjevic Sandra Pekic , Prpic MIlica , Doknic Mirjana , Miljic Dragana , Stojanovic Marko , Jemuovic Zvezdana , Djurovic Marina Nikolic , Petakov Milan

Introduction: Previous studies reported increased unfavorable metabolic phenotype in patients with active acromegaly.Aim of the study: We studied the metabolic phenotype in unselected cohort of 133 patients with active acromegaly (83 female, 62.4%), diagnosed at Clinic of Endocrinology, University Clinical Center, Belgrade, Serbia in the period 2007–2018. Mean age at diagnosis of acromegaly was 50.5±1.2 years and mean BMI was 28.4±0.4 kg/m...

Vertebral fractures are prevalent among patients with acromegaly in spite of normal bone mineral density reflecting overall duration of disease regardless of biochemical control or cure

Stojanovic Marko , Miljic Dragana , Pekic Sandra , Doknic Mirjana , Djurovic Marina Nikolic , Jemuovic Zvezdana , Popovic Vera , Petakov Milan

Introduction: Skeletal complications of acromegaly are among its most persistent and invalidating impacts. Dual-X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) alone might be insufficient or even misleading for bone health assessment in acromegaly.Patients and methods: Patients with acromegaly (N=170) were classified as active (N=104), operatively cured (N=34) or medically controlled (N=32). 57 males and 113 females were included, 52.8 (22...

Cognitive status, anxiety and depression in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus on selective DPP4 inhibitor therapy

Djurovic Marina Nikolic , Jemuovic Zvezdana , Vasovic Olga , Pekic Sandra , Miljic Dragana , Stojanovic Marko , Djokic Biljana Salak , Krljanac Gordana , Petakov Milan

Introduction: Cognitive functions and mood (anxiety and depression) are often impaired in diabetes mellitus (DM). Dipeptidyl peptidase-4 inhibitor (DPP-4) has been shown to exert beneficial effects on insulin sensitivity and glycoregulation in T2DM patients. Introducing DPP-4 therapy leads to maintaining control of glucose levels which could ameliorate or slow down further cognitive and mood disorders impairment.Aim: To evaluate influence of selective DP...

Background: Hypopituitarism is characterised by multiple pituitary hormone deficiencies causing adverse metabolic milleu and body composition changes. Aim: Our aim was to investigate the gender related differences in the prevalence of metabolic syndrome (MetS) and metabolic profiles in patients with hypopituitarism compared to obese controls. Patients and methods: A retrospective study of 282 patients with hypopituitarism (136 wome...
