Introduction: Permanent hypothyroidism is a common side effect of thyroidectomy. Thyroxine binding globulin (TBG) deficiency is characterized with low total thyroid hormones (TH) in the presence of normal free THs and thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH).Case report: A previously healthy 37-year-old man underwent annual health check-up.

Yavuz Dilek Gogas , Yalin Serap , Yazici Dilek , Yasar Mehmet , Deyneli Oguzhan

Aim: Nonenzymatic advanced glycation and oxidation end-products, advanced glycation end-products (AGEs), impart a potent impact on vessels in diabetic state and in euglycaemic conditions with increased oxidative stress.The aim of this study is to measure AGEs and its relationship with carotid intimae media thickness (CIMT) in acromegaly patients.Method: A case–control study was performed in 225 acromegalic patients (F/M: 116/1...

Acromegaly alters elasticity, structure and function of the respiratory system and respiratory disorders constitute 25% of all deaths recorded in acromegalic patients. Respiratory mortality is three fold higher than in normal subjects. However, respiratory dysfunction in acromegaly has seldom been investigated.We aimed to evaluate the extent of pulmonary dysfunction in acromegalic patients with respiratory function tests (RFT). Sixty one acromegalic pati...

Non adherence to medication schedules by patients with chronic illnesses has long been recognized as a problem. The aim of this study is to evaluate levothyroxine (L-T4) compliance, daily dosage and TSH levels under treatment in primary hypothyroid patients.We included 1636 primary hypothyroid patients over 1 year under L-T4 (F/M: 1469/167, 46±13 years of age) included from 11 tertiary health care ...
