Aim: Gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) is a disorder which is described as impaired glucose tolerance which firstly occurs first time during pregnancy. We aimed to evaluate the tear function tests such as Schirmer, tear break-up time (TBUT), tear film osmolarity (TFO), and ocular surface disease index (OSDI) score in pregnant with GDM.Methods: Pregnant women with GDM and healthy pregnant who were matched in both age and gestational age were enrolled in...

Calapkulu Murat , Erkam Sencar Muhammed , Duger Hakan , Kizilgul Muhammed , Ucan Bekir , Ozturk Unsal İlknur , Akhanli Pinar , Cakal Erman

Background: Adrenocortical carcinoma (ACC) is a rare cancer that originates from the cortex of the adrenal gland. Although its exact etiology is not clear, it has been found to be associated with some hereditary cancer syndromes. Sometimes patients present with hormonal excess symptoms (virilization, Cushing’s syndrome) or local symptoms consistent with an abdominal mass. In ACC, computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) are preferred imaging modaliti...

Changes in thyroid hormones and free triiodothyronine-to-free thyroxine ratio in euthyroid patients with obesity in terms of different glucose metabolism statuses

Hepsen Sema , Akhanli Pinar , Erkam Sencar Muhammed , Duger Hakan , Bostan Hayri , Kizilgul Muhammed , Emre Arslan Ismail , Cakal Erman

PurposeThyroid hormones are known to have an essential role in the regulation of energy homeostasis and glucose metabolism. Considering to literature data, variations of thyroid hormones within normal ranges change in obesity and type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) in opposite ways. This study aims to evaluate thyroid hormone levels and fT3/fT4 ratio in different glucose metabolism statuses of euthyroid patients with obesity.Methods</p...
