Objective: Cushing’s syndrome (CS) is related to diabetes mellitus, dyslipidaemia, hypertension, and obesity, which lead to cardiovascular disease (CVD). CVD is the major cause of mortality and morbidity in CS. The aim of our study was to investigate CVD risk markers, such as asymmetric dimethylarginine (ADMA), lipoprotein-associated phospholipase A2 (Lp-PLA2), highly sensitive C-reactive protein (hsCRP), homocysteine, lipid levels, ankle-brachial index (ABI), and carotid...

Ozkan Cigdem , Akturk Mujde , Altinova Alev Eroglu , Cerit Ethem Turgay , Gulbahar Ozlem , Yalcin Mehmet Muhittin , Cakir Nuri , Toruner Fusun Balos

Cardiovascular deleterious effects of short term hypothyroidism are not well known. We aimed to investigate proprotein convertase subtilisin/kexin type 9 (PCSK9), soluble lectin-like oxidized LDL receptor 1 (sLOX-1) and ankle brachial index (ABI) in patients with thyroid cancer with short term overt hypothyroidism due to thyroid hormone withdrawal (THW). Twenty-one patients who require radioactive iodine (RAI) ablation or RAI scan and thirty-six age, sex, BMI similar euthyroid...
