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 ...

Hepsen Sema , Ucan Bekir , Akhanli Pinar , Ozturk Unsal Ilknur , Cakal Erman

Introduction: Acromegaly is caused by growth hormone (GH) and insulin-like growth factor (IGF-1) excess and leads to various comorbidities. However, the association between acromegaly and thromboembolic diseases is unclear. Herein, we present a newly diagnosed acromegaly patient with massive pulmonary embolism.Case report: A 61-year-old female was hospitalized with acromegaly pre-diagnosis. She complained about extensive arthralgia and snoring. She had h...

The diagnostic value of elastography score and strain indexfor the evaluation of thyroid micronodules

Cakal Erman , Karakose Melia , Unsal Ilknur , Sahin Mustafa , Ucan Bekir , Ozbek Mustafa

Background and aim: In the general population, the frequency of thyroid micronodules is increasing and the prevalence of malignancy is higher in nodules at this size. The ultrasonographic features of these nodules are neither spesific nor sensitive Elastography gives information about the degree of hardness at the tissue level and provides assessment of malignancy risk of the nodule. The aim of the study was to investigate the diagnostic value of elastography in patients with ...

Aim: Cardiac rhythm abnormalities have been documented in acromegalic patients. Our aim is to evaluate atrial electromechanical delay (EMD) with tissue doppler imaging (TDI) in patients with acromegaly.Material and methods: Fourty patients with acromegaly (13 patients with remission disease and 27 patients with active disease; 22 women and 18 men; mean aged 46.1±10.3 years), and 37 age- and sex-matched healthy controls were enrolled in the study. At...

Serum H-FABP levels in patients with overt hypothyroidism

Tutal Esra , Ozbek Mustafa , Arslan Muyesser Sayki , Topaloglu Oya , Demirci Taner , Karakose Melia , Caliskan Mustafa , Unsal Ilknur Ozturk , Gungunes Askin , Cakir Evrim , Ucan Bekir , Bozkurt Nujen Colak , Ozturk Gulfer , Sahin Mustafa , Cakal Erman , Delibasi Tuncay

Aim: Overt hypothyroidism affects mostly women with an increased prevalence in individuals by age. Hypothyroidism is associated with accelerated atherosclerotic cardiovascular diseases, possibly caused by the higher incidence of hyperlipidemia, insulin resistance, hypertension which all are associated to hypothyroidism. Heart-type fatty acid binding protein (H-FABP) is specific for cardiomyocytes and a sensitive marker of myocardial injury. The purpose of this study is examini...

Ghrelin may have a role in obesity pathogenesis in patients with vitamin D deficiency

Arslan Muyesser Sayki , Topaloglu Oya , Karakose Melia , Ucan Bekir , Tutal Esra , Karbek Basak , Unsal Ilknur Ozturk , Gungunes Askin , Demirci Taner , Caliskan Mustafa , Ginis Zeynep , Sahin Mustafa , Cakal Erman , Ozbek Mustafa , Delibasi Tuncay

Aim: Several studies suggest a link between vitamin D and obesity. Vitamin D may play a role in obesity. Ghrelin is an orexigenic peptide which induces obesity by central and peripheral mechanisms. Administration of ghrelin promotes food intake and decreased fat utilisation in rodents. Ghrelin levels are decreased in obese individuals.The aim of this study was to evaluate the relationship between vitamin D status and ghrelin levels.Methods: All subjects ...
