Burak Oz Muhammed , Ugur Kader , Dila Oz Zeynep , Fazıl Akkoc Ramazan , Aydin Suleyman

Purpose: Diabetes is one of the most common metabolic disease which has got many peptide hormones have in its etiology. Phoenixin (PNX), a recently discovered neuropeptide appears to have a role in energy management and metabolism through regulating insulin neogenesis and secretion, according to research. There is no research has been studied on the association between diabetes and PNX levels. The aim of the study was to see if there was a relation between PNX levels in the se...

Ugur Kader , Artas Hakan , Balin Mehmet , Aykut Esra , Demircan Selcuk , Orhan Bedrettin , Gozel Nevzat

Introduction: Vitamin D is a fat soluble prohormone and can be produced in the body with adequate sunlight exposure or taken up by consumed foods or supplements. Recently vitamin D deficiency has been seen in pandemic. A rare disease, vitamin D intoxication is usually iatrogenic. High levels of 25(OH) vitamin D increases the intestinal calcium absorption and causes severe and refractory hypercalcemia. In this case report we presented a patient with pancreatitis and hypercalcem...

Serum apelin, salusin-α and salusin-β levels in type 2 diabetes mellitus and hypertension

Ugur Kader , Aydin Suleyman , Yusuf Sener Selcuk , Yildirim Kadriye , Ozkan Yusuf

Introduction: Diabetes mellitus (DM) is a metabolic illness caused by insulin resistance or lack of it. Hypertension (HT) has been seen frequently in diabetic patients, and causes morbidity and mortality with its complications. Salusins are vasodilator and hypotensive peptids which function most in cardiovascular system. Apelin is an insulin-sensitive, vasoconstructive, positive inotropic-effective peptide. In this study, determining the levels of serum salusin-α, salusin...

Microalbuminuria by concentration serum and urine levels of adropin in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus

Ugur Kader , Oz Burak , Ozkan Yusuf , Sener Selcuk Yusuf , Orhan Bedrettin , Aydin Suleyman

Introduction: Diabetes mellitus is an important public health problem due to defects of the effect of the insulin or insulin deficiency, accompanied by chronic microvascular complications with diabetic nephropathy is characterised by proteinuria that the increasing number of patients progress to end stage renal disease. Many peptide hormone made in etiopathogenesis is situated, although adropin which discovered in recent years involves in glucose homeostasis, its relation to d...

The comparison of serum cerebellin and catecholamine levelsin patients with newly diagnosed hypertension and type 2 diabetic whose had newly diagnosed hypertension

Cicek Sedat , Ugur Kader , Yardim Meltem , Sahin Ibrahim , Karatas Ahmet , Kilinc Faruk , Aydin Suleyman

Background/purpose: The combination of DM and HT accelerates vascular complications and increases the risk of mortality and morbidity. Hypertension is seen in half of diabetic patients. HT can be detected in approximately 40% of newly diagnosed diabetic patients. DM frequency increased 2.5 times in hypertensive patients. The association of HT and DM is due to the common mechanism responsible for the pathogenesis of both diseases. There is a limited number of studies investigat...

Antibiotic susceptibilities of Gram-negative bacteria as infectious agents isolated from community-acquired urinary tract infections in diabetic and non-diabetic patients

Ugur Kader , Denk Affan , Sener Selcuk Yusuf , Bal Isa Ahmet , Tartar Ayse Sagmak , Orhan Bedrettin , Donder Emir , Ozkan Yusuf

Introduction: Diabetes mellitus is a metabolic disease which causes acute and chronic complications including insulin deficiency and ineffectiveness or both its incidence is increasing every day. Urinary tract infections are more frequently seen and can lead a more aggressive course in diabetic patients when compared with the population in general. The aim of this study is to determine antibacterial susceptibilities of Gram-negative bacteria isolated from diabetic and non-diab...

Evaluation of serum and salivary subfatin and asprosin hormone levels in patients with nonalcoholic steatohepatisis

Cosar Ugurcan , Ugur Kader , Fazıl Akkoç Ramazan , Yardım Meltem , Aydın Süleyman

Objective: Nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) is a metabolic disease characterized by liver steatosis. There is a correlation between liver steatosis and metabolic hormone dysregulation. Subfatin and asprosin are two important metabolic components of adipose tissue and play a role in carbohydrate metabolism, insulin resistance, and glucose regulation. Therefore, the primary aims of this study were to determine how serum and salivary subfatin and asprosin levels change simulta...
