Karbek Basak , Kadi Ragip , Goksu Ugur Alp , Arik Nurol

Rhabdomyolysis is a syndrome characterized by muscle necrosis and the release of intracelluler muscle contents into systemic circulation. It can became a life-threatening disorder when complicated by acute tubuler necrosis and renal failure. Fenofibrate, a fibric acid derivate, is used to treat diabetic dyslipidemia, hypertriglyceridemia and combined hyperlipidemia alone or in combination with statins. Rhabdomyolysis associated with fenofibrate is extremely rare. In nearly all...

Extrathyroidal feeding from an artery at one pole of the gland is characteristic which is seen on Doppler imaging. We aimed to present a case series including s...

Aim: Several studies suggest a link between vitamin D and obesity. Vitamin D may play a role in obesity. Ghrelin is an orexigenic peptide which induces obesity by central and peripheral mechanisms. Administration of ghrelin promotes food intake and decreased fat utilisation in rodents. Ghrelin levels are decreased in obese individuals.The aim of this study was to evaluate the relationship between vitamin D status and ghrelin levels.Methods: All subjects ...
