Cytokine levels and the effect of the Covid-19 pandemic on the course of Graves’ disease under antithyroid treatment

Sarıbeyliler Goktuğ , Oyacı Yasemin , Merve Ok Ayşe , Şenturk Ciftci Hayriye , Pehlivan Sacide , Yarman Sema

Objective: Graves’ disease (GD) occurs as a result of genetic and environmental factors that trigger autoimmunity. Some pro-inflammatory cytokines have already been linked to an increased susceptibility of developing GD. Recently, it has been reported that Covid-19 infection and SARS-CoV-2 vaccination trigger the emergence of new GD cases or disease recurrence as environmental factors due to the pandemic. However, there is no data in the literature reporting the effects o...

Comparison of the effects of gliclazide and glibenclamide on insulin resistance and metabolic parameters

Gokturk Rabia , Ataoglu Hayriye Esra , Yenigun Mustafa , Ahbap Suleyman , Saglam Zuhal , Temiz Levent , Çetin Faik , Sar Fuat , Kumbasar Baki

Introduction: It has been shown with many studies that sulphonylureas may have a negative effect on parameters of insulin resistance while improving glucose regulation. However not all of the sulphonylureas have the same effect. This analysis assessed the different effects of sulphonylureas on some metabolic parameters of insulin resistance.Method: Newly diagnosed 25 T2DM individuals who were naive of oral antidiabetic therapy were recruited and randomiz...

Sarıdaş Filiz Mercan , Aydemir Ensar , Ates Coskun , Hocaoğlu Erhan , Cander Soner , Gul Ozen Oz , Ersoy Canan , Erturk Erdinc

Introduction: Brown tumor refers to the skeletal change that develops as one of the complications of hyperparathyroidism, in which cystic and fibrous changes occur in the bone. It occurs in approximately 10−20% of patients with primary hyperparathyroidism. Parathyroid cancer is a rare cause of primary hyperparathyroidism and accounts for approximately 1% of cases. In some cases, hyperparathyroidism may be asymptomatic until it becomes a pathological fracture and may be t...

Mercan Sarıdaş Filiz , Akif Otegeceli Mehmet , Aydemir Ensar , Ates Coskun , Hocaoğlu Erhan , Cander Soner , Oz Gul Ozen , Ersoy Canan , Erturk Erdinc

Introduction: Hemichorea-hemiballismus, secondary to hyperglycemia, is a rare but easily treatable condition that is usually associated with poorly controlled type II diabetes mellitus. Diagnosis is based on clinical assessment and imaging. Etiology includes primarily cerebrovascular diseases, metabolic, degenerative, infectious diseases, space-occupying lesions, basal ganglia damage due to drugs and toxic substances.Case: Here we report a rare case of a...

The association between carotid artery intima-media thickness and cardiovascular mortality and morbidity in Type 2 diabetes: a retrospective study

Ataoglu Hayriye Esra , Yenigun Mustafa , Saler Tayyibe , Yigit Zehra , Temiz Levent , Saglam Zuhal , Çetin Faik , Kumbasar Baki , Sar Fuat , Ahbap Suleyman

Carotid artery intima-media thickness (CCA-IMT) highly correlates with cardiovascular events in type 2 diabetes (T2DM). We aimed to determine the cardiovascular mortality and morbidity incidence regarding CCA-IMT and Framingham Score compared with preceding results of T2DM individuals. Our aim was to determine whether ultrasonographic evaluation of carotid arteries may predict cardiovascular mortality, morbidity and diabetic complications in T2DM patients.<p class="abstext...

Success rate of adrenal vein sampling: A ten-year experience

Martínez Montoro José Ignacio , Damas Fuentes Miguel , Fernández Valero Andrea , Picón César María José , Tinahones Madueño Francisco José

Introduction: Adrenal vein sampling (AVS) is the gold standard test to distinguish between unilateral adenoma and bilateral hyperplasia in primary hyperaldosteronism. This is a technical complicated procedure with a variable success rate. Our aim was to report our 10-year-success rate and results as regards to this procedure.Material and Methods: Retrospective observational study including data from patients undergoing AVS between 2009 and 2019.<p cl...
