In previous studies, metabolic complications were reported to be relatively rare in APL, while they were quite common in other types of lipodystrophy syndromes. However, so far, there has been no systematic study on metabolic complications in APL.Methods: We have systematically evaluated 21 APL patients in the Turkish Lipodystrophy Study Gr...

While the medical treatment was mostly planned according to disease activity by hormonal evaluation, the therapeutic decision has tried to be standardized with the SAGIT instrument. The aim of this study is to reassess the therapeutic decisions by clinicians in the management of acromegaly according to the SAGIT instrument.Material and Method: This multicente...
