Yesim Tijen , Durupinar Unsal , Ucak Sema , Saler Tayyibe , Altuntas Yuksel

Smoking is a modifyable risk factor in the incidence of impaired glucose tolerance and type 2 diabetes, but the data concerning the effect of smoking on the course of type 2 diabetes is limited. In this study, we aimed to investigate a possible relationship between smoking and the need of insulin therapy in patients with type 2 diabetes. 470 patients with type 2 diabetes were assessed for smoking habitus, marital and educational status, duration of diabetes, duration of insuli...

Aydogan Unsal Yasemin , Altay Mustafa , Unsal Oktay , Kaplanoglu Veysel , Cagir Yavuz , Yildiz Canan , Beyan Esin , Uysal Ramadan Selma

Aim: Overt/subclinic hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism are known to be associated with cardiovascular risks. There have been no studies evaluating the relationship between nodule presence and arterial stiffness in individuals with euthyroid nodular goitre. Our aim in this study is to demonstrate whether nodule presence and nodule stiffness affect arterial stiffness in individuals with euthyroid nodular goitre by using pulse wave analysis (PWA).Materials...

Nonfunctional adrenal incidentaloma affects central blood pressures and arterial stiffness parameters

Akkan Tolga , Altay Mustafa , Unsal Yasemin Aydogan , Dagdeviren Murat , Beyan Esin

Introduction: In recent years, it is thought that cardiovascular risk is increased in patients with nonfunctional adrenal insidentaloma (NFAI). There are not enough studies in the literature that evaluating this condition in patients with NFAI who don’t have traditional cardiovascular risk factors. The aim of our study is to determine peripheral and central blood pressures and arterial stiffness in patients with NFAI who don’t have traditional risk factors and autono...

Somatostatin Analogue Treatment of a Persistant TSH-Secreting Adenoma: a report of case

Unsal İlknur Ozturk , Cakal Erman , Apaydın Mahmut , Karakose Melia , Ucan Bekir , Ozbek Mustafa

Introduction: Thyrotropinomas are usually considered when the TSH level is inappropriately elevated or normal in a hyperthyroid patient with increased serum T4 levels, regardless of the presence of visible tumor on imaging. The prevalence of these adenomas, which account for 0.5–3% of all pituitary tumors has been estimated to be around one case per million. Most thyrotroph adenomas are large and invasive at diagnosis, and present with signs and symptoms of an ...

Karakose Mellia , Hepsen Sema , Cakal Erman , Arslan Muyesser , Tutal Esra , Akin Safak , Unsal Ilknur , Ozbek Mustafa

Background and aim: Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is one of the most common endocrine disorder in women with reproductive age. Nodular goiter and autoimmune thyroid disease (AITD) are frequently seen endocrinological abnormalities. The aim of this study was to identify the prevalence of AITD and nodular goiter in PCOS patients and investigate whether PCOS related hormones and metabolic factors affect these thyroid disorders.Methods: Ninety-seven with ...

Karakaya Serdar , Altay Mustafa , Kaplan Efe Fatma , Karadag Ibrahim , Unsal Oktay

Aim: In our study we aimed to investigate neutrophil/lymphocyte (N/L) ratio, variations in leukocytes and leukocyte subtypes and relationship between N/L ratio and insulin resistance (IR) in obesity.Material and methods: In this study 250 obese patients data were scanned retrospectively and 96 patients that are convenient to inclusion criteria and has complete file information were included in the study. Forty healthy individual with similar age and sex ...
