Hypomagnesemia induced disturbance of consciousness in alcoholic cirrhosis

Muzurovic Emir , Boskovic Olivera

Introduction: Serum calcium (Ca) is a major regulator of PTH secretion, but serum magnesium (Mg)also can modulate PTH secretion. Intracellular Mg depletion impairs the ability of the parathyroid to secrete PTH,which subsequently cause fall in the serum Ca concentration.Case report: A 67 year old male patient was admitted to intensive care unit because of disturbance of consciousness, due to suspected hepatic encephalopathy. In his previous history, he ha...

The impact of vitamin D supplementation on HOMA IR and ovulation in patients with polycystic ovarian syndrome

Muzurovic Emir , Vujosevic Snezana

Introduction: Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOs) is a common cause of ovarian dysfunction in women with anovulation. Vitamin D plays a physiologic role in reproduction including ovarian follicular development and luteinization via altering anti-müllerian hormone (AMH) signalling, follicle-stimulating hormone sensitivity and progesterone production in human granulosa cells. Low vitamin D levels may exacerbate the symptoms of PCOS, including insulin resistance, ovulatory, m...

Painful fat necrosis as a consequence of insulin application - an unsolvable problem?

Borozan Sanja , Muzurovic Emir , Vujosevic Snezana

We report a case of 39–year-old female presented with painful, scaling skin lesions on insulin application sites. She was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM) at the age of 21 years and treated with intensified conventional insulin therapy. Three months before hospital admission, she suddenly started to feel pain at insulin injection sites, followed by oval subcutaneous deposits and skin ulcer in the further course. Identical local changes repeated after subcuta...

Two types of thyroid cancer in one patient

Muzurovic Emir , Borozan Sanja , Vujosevic Snezana

A 65–year-old male was referred to endocrinologist due to significantly elevated calcitonin level of 3662 pg/ml. Previously, almost 3 decades before, the patient underwent right thyroid lobectomy for papillary carcinoma. Then, 9 years afterwards, he was reoperated and total thyroidectomy with neck exploration was performed. In pathohistological finding, metastatic papillary carcinoma was proved. Radioactive iodine ablation was used as a post surgical treatment. After comp...

The role of lipids in prediction of gestational diabetes mellitus

Muzurovic Emir , Boskovic Olivera , Vujosevic Snezana

Introduction: Gestational diabetes(GDM) is a kind of diabetes that can happen during pregnancy. Many women who have GDM, get type 2 diabetes later in life. GDM is more likely for women who are overweight, women with family members who have type 2 diabetes and women who are American Indian. During pregnancy of healthy women, it is usual for blood lipids to increase significantly. Total cholesterol, HDL- and LDL-cholesterol increase 25-50%, triglycerides increase twice to four t...

Quality of life of patients with active acromegaly which didn’t underwent surgery

Boskovic Olivera , Kovacevic Zlata , Muzurovic Emir , Vujosevic Snezana

Acromegaly is chronic disease caused by hypersecretion of growth hormone (GH), most common caused by adenoma of pituitary gland. Cardiovascular risk, respiratory complication and malignancy are more common in this patients. Most often onset is between 30 to 50 years old, equally between gender. Therapy is almost always surgery, it can be combined with radiotherapy and gamma knife. Medicament therapy with somatostatin analogues, dopamine agonists and GH receptor antagonist. Goa...

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...

Nursing networking for insulin pump therapy

Minic Sanja , Medenica Sanja , Muzurovic Emir , Kavaric Sreten , Djogo Aleksandar , Krnjevic Djordjije , Boskovic Olivera , Vujosevic Snezana

Objective: Diabetes mellitus is among the most common of chronic disorders with increasing prevalence worldwide, affecting 50 000 citizens in Montenegro. The insulin pump is a medical device that works on the principle of continuous insulin injection, and is used in the control of diabetes in insulin dependent patients. The objective of this study was to highlight the role of nurse in education of the patients, implantation of insulin pump and nursing networking for insulin pu...

The impact of different glucose-lowering regimens on cardiovascular disease in type 2 diabetes

Vujosevic Snezana , Agic Selim , Borozan Sanja , Vucetic Sanja , Kavaric Sreten , Boskovic Olivera , Djogo Aleksandar , Krnjevic Djordjije , Muzurovic Emir , Madzgalj Dragomir

Introduction: American Heart Association considers diabetes mellitus (DM) to be one of seven major controllable risk factors for cardiovascular disease. At least 68% of patients age 65 or older with DM die from some form of heart disease while 16% die as a consequence of stroke. Studies conducted in patients with type 2 DM (T2DM) have not confirmed a significant association between a certain types of glucose-lowering drugs and a presence of cardiovascular events.<p class="...

Calcium infusion test in primary hyperparathyroidism- sensitivity of calcium sensing receptor, possible new theories?

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

Objective: Ionized calcium via calcium sensing receptors (CaSR) mediates feedback inhibition of parat hormone (PTH) secretion. The aim of this study is to evaluate the difference in PTH response during calcium infusion test (CIT), between patients with primary hyperparathyroidism (PHPT) and healthy control (HC).Methods: Study consisted of 15 patients with confirmed PHPT and parathyroid adenoma (57.20±11.38yrs) and 15 healthy subjects-HC (57.20±...
