Thyroid dysfunction related abnormalities in adiponectin and glucose metabolism before and after treatment

Ozdemir Didem , Dagdelen Selcuk , Usman Aydan

Objective: Thyroid dysfunctions have various effects on glucose and lipid metabolism. Adiponectin (ADP) is an adipokine decreased in obesity and insulin resistance. In this study, we aimed to investigate the role for ADP in thyroid dysfunction related changes in glucose and lipid metabolism.Methods: Newly diagnosed overt hypothyroid (n=20) and thyrotoxic (n=23) adult patients with a body mass index (BMI)<30 kg/m2 were include...

Ozdemir Didem , Topaloglu Oya , Aydogan Leyla , Ersoy Reyhan , Cakir Bekir

Introduction: The aldosterone-to-renin ratio (A/R) is the most frequently used screening test for primary hyperaldosteronism (PH) and a confirmation test is recommended when it is high. We aimed to determine the frequency of PH in patients with high A/R and investigated possible clinical features that might help to prevent unnecesary confirmation tests.Method: Patients who underwent saline infusion test because of high A/R (>3.8) were retrospectively...

Relationship between diabetes mellitus and hemostasis: a prothrombotic condition

Arpaci Dilek , Saglam Fatma , Ozdemir Didem , Ersoy Reyhan , Cakir Bekir

Background: Diabetes is very common disorder. Many studies have shown that patients with diabetes mellitus have incresing trombotic complications both arterial and venous trombosis. Bad control diabetes increases risk of trombosis. Recent reports have shown that shortened APTTs and increased fibrinogen indicate procoagulan situations. In this study, we aimed to evaluate whether chronic hyperglisemia or bad control diabetes causes trombosis which is reflected by shortened APTTs...

Aim: Familial hypercholesterolemia (FH) is an autosomal dominant genetic disease characterized by increased levels of low density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-chol). Despite relatively high prevalance and significant association with increased mortality, the awareness of physicians and patients is low and it is an underdiagnosed and undertreated disease. We aimed to detect patients with FH and determine treatment status and compliance.Materials and metho...

Introduction: Hysterosalphingography (HSG) is the radiographic examination of uterine cavity and fallopian tubes. It is generally used during evaluation of infertility and radioopaque contrast is injected through cervical duct during the procedure. Lipiodol which is the most commonly used contrast media in HSG is a fatsoluble iodinated contrast media. This iodine is progressively cleared from the body in a period ranging from a few weeks to a few months. Here, we present a 6 w...
