Sex hormone binding globulin, total and HMW adiponectin and insulin resistance among normal weight postmenopausal women with metabolic syndrome

Sieminska Lucyna , Walczak Krzysztof

Visceral obesity among postmenopausal women often leads to the development of metabolic syndrome (MS), but there is a subgroup of normal weight postmenopausal women displaying metabolic disturbances who are diagnosed to have MS. These subjects often show insulin resistance, however little is known about the effects of adiponectin and sex hormone binding globuline SHBG) on MS in this subset of women.The aim of the study was: i) to assess serum SHBG, total...

Adiponectin (ADPN), resistin (RSN) and leptin are proteins that affect insulin resistance and atherosclerosis significantly. Although low levels of adiponectin and high levels of resistin and leptin are associated with coronary heart disease and cardiovascular disease risk factors, it is unclear whether adiponectin, resistin and leptin levels are related to the risk of developing ischemic stroke. The aim of the study was to evaluate the adiponectin, resistin and leptin serum l...

Introduction: Hipersecretion of somatotrophin axis hormones in acromegaly favours the development of numerous metabolic and organ complications. The aim of the study was to establish the occurrence integrity of these complications in acromegalics.Material and methods: The tested 72 acromegalics – 32 men aged 46.9±15.2 years and 40 women aged 58.8±12.0 years, for which the period of the illness was determined, the body mass index (BMI) and ...

E-selectin in women with autoimmune thyroiditis and the relationships with metabolic syndrome

Sieminska Lucyna , Kos-Kudla Beata , Marek Bogdan , Nowak Mariusz , Kajdaniuk Dariusz , Foltyn Wanda , Walczak Krzysztof , Borowski Artur

Autoimmune thyroiditis (AIT) is characterised by infiltration of the thyroid by lymphocytes and other immune cells. Autoantibodies to thyroid-specific antigens: thyroglobulin (TG) and thyroperoxidase (TPO) are also produced. The penetration of inflammatory cells into target organ is regulated by cytokines and adhesion molecules expressed on thyroid endothelial cells. E-selectin is one of the selectin family, and is responsible for interaction between leukocytes and endothelium...

Background: Thyroid hormone deficiency is associated with increased cardiovascular morbidity, which cannot be fully explained by the atherogenic changes in lipid profile observed in these patients. Hyperhomocysteinemia could help to explain the increased risk for arteriosclerotic coronary artery disease in hypothyroidism because is an important and independent risk factor for cardiovascular disease. Hypothyroidism decreases hepatic levels of enzymes involved in the remethylati...
