Thyrotoxic periodic paralysis in young Caucasian

Simovic Nikola , Gluvic Zoran , Rasic-Milutinovic Zorica , Tica Jelena , Popovic-Radinovic Vesna , Vujovic Marina , Lackovic Milena

Thyrotoxic periodic paralysis (TPP) is uncommon complication of Graves’ disease mainly observed in young males of Asian origin. It is rarely seen among white hyperthyroid patients (0.1–0.2%), usually presented as lower extremities muscle weakness of sudden onset, probably cause by hypokalemia. Possible mechanism of hypokalemia is an increased sodium–potassium–adenosine triphosphatase pump activity with consequent massive shift og potassium from extracellula...

Body composition and bone mineral density in hemodialysis patients

Rasic-Milutinovic Zorica , Perunicic-Pekovic Gordana , Stojanovic Olivera , Tica Jelena , Popovic Vesna , Vujovic Marina , Gluvic Zoran

Aim/hypothesis: Chronic renal failure maintenance hemodialysis (HD) patients are at risk for low bone mineral density (BMD) and fractures. Parathyroid hormone (iPTH) plays a pivotal role in the pathophysiology of uremic bone disease, but in healthy population body weight and particularly body composition are more important determinants of bone mass.Patients and methods: We studied BMD (results were recorded as g/cm2) and T score using D...

The effect of body composition and iron status on insulin resistance in hemodialysis patients

Rasic Zorica , Perunicic Gordana , Tica Jelena , Popovic Vesna , Vujovic Marina , Gluvic Zoran

Background/Aims: High level of inflammatory cytokines was present within malnourished and chronic renal failure maintenance hemodialysis (MHD) patients, but there were conflicting data about the role of inflammation on development of insulin resistance (IR) in non-obese and overweight MHD patients.Methods: We selected 23 well-nourished and 20 middle- to moderate-malnourished, sex and age-matched, stable MHD patients, 23 male and 20 female, with median di...

The lipid profile in patients with subclinical hypothyroidism and metabolic syndrome

Radinovic Vesna Popovic , Milutinovic Zorica Rasic , Jevtic Jelena Tica , Vujovic Marina , Lackovic Milena , Simovic Nikola , Ilic Maja Stojadinovic

Background: We know that lipid profile is disturbed in both subclinical hypothyroidism (SH) and metabolic syndrome (MetSy). In this study we observed lipid profile in newly diagnosed patients with SH and MetSy.Materials and methods: We chose 70 patients (all females) with newly discovered SH and 20 healthy controls, mean age 51.1 (±6.79). The parameters that we determined are: TSH, FT4, anti-TPO-At, triglycerides, whole, LDL and HDL chole...

Ectopic thyroid tissue presented as left adrenal mass – a case report

Samardzic Vladimir , Gluvic Zoran , Lackovic Milena , Tica Jelena , Popovic-Radinovic Vesna , Vujovic Marina , Obradovic Milan , Isenovic Esma R.

Introduction: Ectopic thyroid tissue is a rare developmental abnormality with the prevalence of 1 per 100.000–300.000 persons in the general population. It is most commonly detected in younger women and presented as lingual thyroid. Here we report a rare case of ectopic thyroid tissue in the left adrenal gland.Case report: A 29-year old female without previous medical history was incidentally diagnosed with left adrenal gland mass detected on routi...

The influence of subclinical hypothyroidism on glucose levels

Radinovic Vesna Popovic , Milutinovic Zorica Rasic , Jevtic Jelena Tica , Vujovic Marina , Gluvic Zoran , lackovic Milena , Ilic Maja Stojadinov

Background: Recently many authors are questioning the existing of elements of metabolic syndrome (MetSy) in patients with subclinical hypothyroidism (SH). In this cross sectional study we observed glycemia, as an element of MetSy, in newly diagnosed patients with SH.Materials and methods: Seventy females participated in study. Among them there were 50 patients with SH, mean age 58.3 (±8.53), and 20 controls without SH, mean age 51.1 (±6.79). We...

Insulin analogue management: subjective and objective assessment of life quality in patients previously managed with human insulin

Gluvic Zoran , Rasic-Milutinovic Zorica , Tica Jelena , Lackovic Milena , Vujovic Marina , Popovic-Radinovic Vesna , Isenovic-Milivojevic Esma , Jankovic Jelena

Introduction: By using insulin analogue, it is expected to improve glycemic regulation in poorly controlled type 2 diabetes (t2DM). The aim of the study was to examine the quality of glycemic control and quality of life (QoL) of patients managed with insulin analogues, previously treated with human insulin.Materials and methods: The pilot study included 30 t2DM outpatients, divided into two groups (15 subjects) – the first group was treated with hum...

The effect of erythropoietin treatment on insulin resistance and inflammatory markers in patients on maintenance hemodialysis

Rasic-Milutinovic Zorica , Vujovic Marina , Perunicic-Pekovic Gordana , Popovic Vesna , Tica Jelena , Gluvic Zoran , Lackovic Milena , Bokan Ljiljana

Background and aim: Iron overload and inflammation might participate in the pathogenesis of insulin resistance in community. The improvement of insulin resistance in hemodialysis (HD) patients is frequently seen after correction of anemia. The aim of this study was to investigate the influence of recobinant humam erythropoietin (Epo) treatment on insulin resistance in non-diabetic HD patients.Patients and methods: We investigated the effects of 6 months-...

Have the hypothyroid patients really had ‘euthyroid' quality of life after the euthyroid state is established with levothyroxine-substitution?

Gluvic Zoran , Tica Jelena , Popovic-Radinovic Vesna , Vujovic Marina , Rasic-Milutinovic Zorica , Lackovic Milena , Isenovic Esma , Paunovic Nevena

Introduction: Subclinical and clinical primary hypothyroidism potentially makes a negative influence on the patient’s quality of life. Present study examined the level of hypothyroid symptoms and signs expression as well patient’s quality of life before levothyroxine and after substitutionally-induced laboratory euthyroidism.Material and methods: Prospective case–control study consisted of 75 female patients divided into three groups based...

Subclinical hypothyroidism and bone mineral density

Rasic-Milutinovic Zorica , Milicevic Dusan , Gluvic Zoran , Vujovic Marina , Tica Jelena , Popovic-Radinovic Vesna , Perunicic-Pekovic Gordana , Popin-Taric Marija

Objective: Hyperthyroidism is accompanied by low bone mass. Because the reference range of TSH levels is defined statistically, some individuals with high-normal TSH levels (TSH <10 mU/l), may have mild hypothyroidism (subclinical hypothyroidism) and reduced bone mass. We therefore determined whether serum TSH levels correlate with bone mineral density (BMD) in persons with subclinical hypothyroidism.Design: A cross-sectional study.<p class="abst...
