Sumarac-Dumanovic Mirjana , Jeremic Danka , Stamenkovic-Pejkovic Danica , Milin Jelena , Cvijovic Goran , Micic Dragan

Thyroid dysfunction has been linked to reduced fertility. It is known that changes in SHBG and sex steroids are a consistent feature associated with hyper- and hypothyroidism. It is also has reported that women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) are more insulin-resistant than it would be expected on the basis of their age and BMI. The mechanisms underlying this phenomenon are still not clarified. Hyperandrogenaemia may play a role, but also other factors such as thyroid fu...

Introduction: Secretory adrenal tumors sensitive to luteinizing hormone (LH) and/or human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) are well documented in the literature. LH and hCG share a mutual LH/hCG receptor and a comparable physiological role.Objective: The aim of our study was to evaluate the response of adrenal steroids (cortisol, aldosterone and dehydroepiandrosterone sulphate (DHEAS)) to exogenous hCG stimulation in menopausal patients with adrenal incident...

Introduction: After gastric bypass, gastric secretion decreased and resorption of minerals and vitamins may be compromised. Lower resorpion of serum calcium and vitamin D could stimulate PTH secretion after restictive and malabsorptive bariatric procedures.Methods: We have measured serum calcium, D vitamin and PTH in patients (n=50, 17 males and 33 females) 6 and 12 months after R en Y gastric bypass, 38.6±12.6 years of age, with BMI 43&#17...

Introduction: Various hypothesis exist about the mechanism of changes in glucose control and insulin sensitivity after bariatric surgery.Description of methods/design: The aim of our study was to determine glucose, insulin, C-peptide and GLP-1 levels after test meal (Fresubin drink a 200 ml given at 0 min; 200 kcal, 15% protein, 30% fat and 55% carbohydrate) before (day 0) and 5 days after gastric bypass surgery in a 22 obese patients (age: 36.22±12...

IntroductionThe connection between obesity and tumorigenesis has been well established.AimThe aim of this study was to elucidate if there are any demographic and functional differences in adrenal incidentalomas (AI) with respect to different body mass index (BMI) categories.Patients and methodsThis was an observational, cross sectional study. The AI cohort consist...
