Unusual presentation of primary hyperparathyroidism with coexisted thyroid carcinoma

Basaran Yalcin , Ince Semra , Alagoz Engin , Meric Coskun , Taslipinar Abdullah

Introduction: Brown tumor is a rare benign bone lesion with incidence ranging from 1.5% in primary hyperparathyroidism to 13% in secondary hyperparathyroidism. Common sites of involvement are pelvis, femur and ribs, but may appear in any bone. Since the incidence of thyroid disease is higher among patients with hyperparathyroidism than the general population, these lesions must be distinguished from metastases from thyroid carcinoma.We present a patient ...

Add on exenatide treatment in obese type 2 diabetic patients under intensive insulin regiments

Sonmez Alper , Dinc Mustafa , Taslipinar Abdullah , Aydogdu Aydogan , Meric Coskun , Basaran Yalcin , Haymana Cem , Demir Orhan , Azal Omer

Introduction: Intensive insulin treatment in obese patients with type 2 diabetes (T2DM) is often difficult. Insulin dosages are much higher, which further increase weight gain and the risk of hypoglycemia. Glucagon like peptide 1 receptor agonists (GLP-1RAs) are the promising treatment modalities causing weight loss and reducing the risk of hypoglycemia. There is no published data about the effect of adding on GLP1RAs to obese T2DM patients with un-controlled glucose levels un...

Does follicle stimulating hormone effect adiposity in patients with hypergonadotrophic hypogonadism: a retrospective study

Demirci Ibrahim , Haymana Cem , Gulcelik Nese Ersoz , Sonmez Yusuf Alper , Meric Coskun , Aydogdu Aydogan , Demir Orhan , Azal Omer

Introduction: Recent studies showed that post-menopausal osteoporosis and weight gain starts at the perimenopause stage, a period characterized by relatively stable estrogen and rising FSH levels. FSH is found to be associated with adiposity in women, which is also a great risk factor for type 2 DM. There is also a sharp increase in visceral adiposity during this life stage, which coincides with the emergence of disrupted energy balance and reduced physical activity. There is ...

Hematological indices in congenital hypogonadism and the effect of testosterone replacement therapy: A retrospective study

Haymana Cem , Demirci Ibrahim , Dinc Mustafa , Demir Orhan , Akin Onur , Meric Coskun , Aydogdu Aydogan , Sonmez Alper , Azal Omer

Introduction: Patients with hypogonadism are at increased risk for cardiovascular diseases. Mean platelet volume (MPV), platelet-to-lymphocyte ratio (PLR), and neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio (NLR) are hematological indices that are surrogate markers of adverse cardiovascular outcomes. This study investigated the platelet count, MPV levels, PLR, and NLR in patients with congenital hypogonadotrophic hypogonadism (CHH) and also studied the effect of testosterone replacement thera...

TSH suppression increases the risk of sarcopenia and frailty in the long-term follow-up of elderly patients with differentiated thyroid carcinoma

Objective: In differentiated thyroid carcinoma (DTC), TSH suppression with levothyroxine (L-T4) is a standard treatment for reducing tumor recurrence after total thyroidectomy. This study aims to evaluate the effect of long-term TSH suppression on the development of sarcopenia and frailty in elderly patients with DTC.Method: Seventy patients aged 60 years and older with stable TSH levels during the last year and under L-T4 due to DTC were included in the...

Endothelial dysfunction, inflammation and insulin resistance in patients with Klinefelter Syndrome

Haymana Cem , Aydogdu Aydogan , Demirci Ibrahim , Dinc Mustafa , Demir Orhan , Torun Deniz , Yesildal Fatih , Meric Coskun , Basaran Yalcin , Sonmez Alper , Azal Omer

Introduction: The prevalence of cardiometabolic disorders such as type 2 diabetes mellitus, dysipidemia and metabolic syndrome is increased in patients with Klinefelter syndrome (KS). The mechanism by which cardiometabolic risk increases in patients with KS remains to be completely elucidated. We investigated the presence of inflammation, insulin resistance and endothelial dysfunction in an unconfounded population of KS.Methods: A total of 31 patients wi...

The investigation of oxidative stress-related parameters in congenital hypogonadism

Haymana Cem , Aydogdu Aydogan , Soykut Bugra , Erdem Onur , Ibrahimov Tural , Dinc Mustafa , Meric Coskun , Taslipinar Abdullah , Basaran Yalcin , Sonmez Alper , Azal Omer

Introduction: Patients with hypogonadism are at increased risk of cardiac and metabolic diseases. The pathogenesis of increased cardio-metabolic risk in hypogonadal patients is not clear. Oxidative stress plays an important role in the pathogenesis of cardio-metabolic diseases. The aim of this study was to search for any difference of the oxidative stress parameters between in patients with hypogonadism and healthy controls.Materials and Methods: Thirty ...

The effect of testosterone replacement on endothelial dysfunction, inflammation and insulin resistance in male hypogonadotrophic hypogonadism

Sonmez Alper , Taslipinar Abdullah , Aydogdu Aydogan , Tapan Serkan , Meric Coskun , Basaran Yalcin , Sertoglu Erdim , Yilmaz Mahmut I , Serdar Muhittin A , Ozgurtas Taner , Bolu Erol , Kutlu Mustafa

Objective: Metabolic disorders are common in patients with hypogonadism. Testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) significantly improves symptoms of testosterone deprivation such as mood, libido or musculoscelatal power. However, whether the metabolic and cardiovascular risk is improved is not clearly known. We aimed to search for the metabolic and cardiovascular effects of TRT.Design: Prospective study, performed in the outpatient units of Gulhane Medical...

HDL cholesterol subfractions and the effect of testosterone replacement in hypogonadism

Bolu Erol , Sonmez Alper , Tapan Serkan , Taslipinar Abdullah , Aydogdu Aydogan , Meric Coskun , Basaran Yalcin , Uckaya Gokhan , Serdar Muhittin A , Kurt Ismail , Azal Omer

Metabolic disorders and cardiovascular events are increased in hypogonadism. Serum HDL composition is a better cardiovascular predictor than the HDL counts. However, there is no information about the HDL subfractions in patients with hypogonadism. We designed a prospective study to investigate the HDL subfractions in treatment naïve subjects with hypogonadism and the effects of two different testosterone replacement regimens on the HDL subfractions. Seventy young male pat...

Depression screening in adults with diabetes

Demirci Ibrahim , Haymana Cem , Sonmez Yusuf Alper , Bolu Abdullah , Kirnap Nazli Gulsoy , Demir Orhan , Dinc Mustafa , Meric Coskun , Aydogdu Aydogan , Azal Omer

Introduction: Elevated depressive symptoms and depressive disorders affect one in four patients with type 1 or type 2 diabetes (1). Thus, routine screening for depressive symptoms is indicated in this high-risk population. Current guidelines all recommend screening for depression in diabetic population(2). The Patient Health Questionnaire-9 (PHQ-9) is a valid screening tool for depression in individuals with diabetes (3). There is no specific data about the prevalence of depre...
