Karakaya Pinar , Pehlivan Bahar , Mert Meral , Karagoz Hamide , Okuturlar Yildiz

Introduction-aim: Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is a clinical condition of uncertain etiology, in whose pathogenesis several mechanisms are involved and which is defined by fat vacuoles in more than 5% of hepatic histiocytes in the absence of serious alcohol consumption. It is frequently comorbid with obesity and insulin resistance. However, NAFLD is also seen in non-obese individuals. The purpose of this study was to compare insulin resistance and metabolic parame...

Introduction: Both overweight/obesity and central obesity were inversely associated with anemia in the studies. In our study, we aimed to determine the relationship between different haemoglobin (Hb) levels and BMI.Materials and methods: A total of 146 patients (131 (89.1%) female and 15 (10.2%) male) were enrolled in the study. Patients were divided into five groups namely group-1 (Hb ≤7 g/dl), group-2 (7 g/dl<Hb ≤10 g/dl), group-3 (10 g...

Cicek Beyza , Okuturlar Yildiz , Cem Deniz Orhan , Okuturlar Ozgur , Celik Ozlem , Serteser Mustafa , Şahin Sevgi

Aims: Glycosylated hemoglobin (HbA1c) is a marker which demonstrates 3-month average level of blood glucose level. In individuals with high blood sugar level for a long time is associated with increased risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD). There is a need for simple and cost-effective markers to determine the risk of CVD in primary health care settings. In this study, we aimed to investigate the value of HbA1c for predicting cardiovascular risk in healthy non-diabetic individ...

Preoperative preparation of the hyperthyroid patient for thyroidectomy is imperative to avoid perioperative complications due to severe thyrotoxicosis. 24-years old woman was admitted at our clinic for uncontrolled Graves’ disease. In our case, agranulocytosis introduced by propylthiouracil. Therefore, surgery was the only chance of an effective therapy. In cases when the patient is unresponsive to medical therapy or when such therapy is contraindicated, therapeutic plasm...

The relationship between androgen levels and NLR in hirsutism

Sayilan Samet , Mert Meral , Sayilan Aylin Aydin , Ozturk Ebru , Okuturlar Yildiz , Kocoglu Hakan

Introduction: Hirsutism is a disease in which, women chin, upper lip, chest, abdomen, showing the terminal structure to increase hair growth in the male pattern of distribution as androgen sensitive back and thighs are seen. Neutrophil/lymphocyte ratio (NLR) has been proposed as a simple inflammatory marker of response. Increased value of NLR cardiovascular venture in patients was found to be an indicator of poor prognosis. In our study, we aimed to determine the association b...

Introduction: The aim of this study is to determine the relationship of Beck Depression Inventory (BDI) with vitamin D levels and total and visceral fat mass in cancer patients.Methods: A total of 219 patients were included in the study. All patients underwent blood tests including prealbumin, vitamin D. Also patients’ BMI values were calculated and total and visceral fat masses of all patients were measured by bio-impedance analyzer. All subjects c...

Introduction: It was aimed to evaluate the biochemical and hormonal parameters in female patients with and without polycystic ovary and presenting with symptoms of hirsutism.Materials and methods: In this study, 217 female patients presenting with symptoms of hirsutism were enrolled. Seventy-two female patients having polycystic ovaries by ultrasonography were named as group 1 and 145 female patients with normal ovaries were named as group 2. FSH, LH, pl...

Is there any effect of the treatment on mean platelet volume in patients with hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism?

Okuturlar Yildiz , Soylu Aliye , Tekin Enver , Mert Meral , Harmankaya Ozlem , Kumbasar Abdulbaki

Introduction: Mean platelet volume (MPV) which is part of a complete blood count measures the platelet size. There are many studies in the literature that it is an indicator of platelet function in thrombotic and inflammatory diseases. However, the number of studies about changes in MPV after treatment in thyroid disease is very limited. In this study, we aimed to reveal the MPV change with treatment in patients with hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism.Ma...

Introduction: Insulinomas are rare pancreatic islet cell tumours with an incidence of four cases per million per year. About 10% of all insulinomas are malignant. We here examined an insulinoma with aggressive driving in a young male patient with severe hypoglycaemia in the emergency room.Case report: 34-year-old male patient was admitted to the emergency department with the blurring of consciousness. Blood glucose was 19 mg/dl, consciousness tends to sl...
