MTE 13: management of male osteoporosis

Yavuz Dilek Gogas

Osteoporosis in men is recently recognized as a major underestimated public health problem. In 2050, the incidence of hip fracture in men is expected to increase by 310% worldwide. After the age of 50, one out of three osteoporotic fractures are seen in men. Men suffering any major fracture have a higher mortality rate than women osteoporotic fractures. Screening is usually recommended in many guidelines above the age of 65 or 70 years and those younger aged with risk for oste...

Do metabolic syndrome and diabetes affect skin autofluorescence in patients with morbid obesity?

Apaydin Tugce , Yavuz Dilek Gogas

PurposeObesity, diabetes mellitus, and metabolic syndrome (MetS) have been known to be associated with increased skin autofluorescence (SAF). In patients with MetS, higher SAF measurements were found to be associated with an increased number of the components of MetS. In this cross-sectional study, we aimed to evaluate the association of MetS and its’ components with skin autofluorescence in severely obese patients and to examine whether diabetes or...

Decreased muscle strength is associated with vitamin D and albumin levels after bariatric surgery

Yavuz Dilek Gogas , Uygur Meliha Melin

Bariatric surgery patients are at risk of decreasing in muscle mass, vitamin and protein deficiency. The aim of this study is to asses muscle strength, serum protein and vitamin levels after bariatric surgery.Methods: 264 patients underwent bariatric surgery who completed 6 th month policlinic visits were included in the study. Patients were followed appropriately supplemented protein and vitamins as suggested; all study parameters were assessed before a...

Bone mineral density and bone turnover markers after bariatric surgery

Uygur Meliha Melin , Yavuz Dilek Gogas

Although bariatric surgery has beneficial effects on obesity related complications, rapid weight loss might have negative effects on skeletal health. The objective of our study was to evaluate changes in bone mineral density (BMD) and bone biochemical markers in patients, before and 1 year after bariatric surgery.Methods: One hundred and two morbidly obese subjects (mean 43±15 years, BMI 48,5 g/cm2) performed either Roux en Y gastric bypa...

Skin autofluorescence and serum carboxymethyllysine levels in hypothyroid and hyperthyroid patients

Yavuz Dilek Gogas , Yazici Dilek , Temizkan Sule

Levels of thyroid hormones may effect the levels of the glycation product and those of the oxidation products.Objective: To evaluate the relationship between skin autofluorescence (SAF), and serum advanced glycation end products (AGEs) parameters in hypothyroid and hyperthyroid patients.Method: Newlydiagnosed or untreated 100 overt and subclinical hypothyroid patients (42±13 yrs) and 50 overt-subclinical hyperthyroid patients ...

A micromegaly case: Difficult to determine whether a metabolic state or an acromegaly subset

Uygur Meliha Melin , Yavuz Dilek Gogas

Introduction:Acromegaly is caused by excess levels of growth hormone (GH) and insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF1), which usually result from a pituitary adenoma. At the presence of classical symptoms, the diagnosis is confirmed by increased serum IGF1 concentrations and high serum levels of GH that are not suppressed in an an oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT). A nadir GH cut-off of 0.4 µg/lwith ultrasensitive assays is considered as diagnostic. How...

Efficacy of plasmapheresis in the management of severe hypertriglyceridemia

Yazan Ceyda Dincer , Imre Eren , Yavuz Dilek Gogas

Objective: Severe hypertriglyceridemia is one of the leading causes of acute pancreatitis which is associated with increased mortality and morbidity. Here we evaluate the effectiveness of plasmapheresis on triglyceride levels in our group of patients who had plasmapheresis in our endocrinology clinic.Method: We retrospectively evaluate clinical and laboratory reports between 2016–2018, for demographic parameters and the lipid levels before and immed...

Clinical staging of well differentiated thyroid cancer patients according to american thyrid association risk calculator version 7 and 8 models

Elbasan Onur , Dincer Ceyda , Imre Eren , Yavuz Dilek Gogas

Aim: The aim of the present study was to compare version 7 of ATA risk calculating tool, developed for the staging of well differentiated thyroid cancers,and is used commonly in the clinical practice with its version 8 developed in 2018 with respect to clinical staging.Material and method: 295 patients followed with the diagnosis of well differentiated thyroid cancer were included in the present study. According to pathology reports and clinical data, th...

The effects of vitamin D on advanced glycation end-products in prediabetic and type 2 diabetic patients with vitamin D deficiency

Tekin Bahar , Bayram F. Buket , Yavuz Dilek Gogas

Aim: There is strong evidence regarding vitamin D being a risk factor for Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus (T2DM). In this study, we aimed to investigate the effects of vitamin D on advanced glycation end-products in prediabetic and type 2 diabetic patients with vitamin D deficiency.Methods: Forty type 2 diabetic patients, 40 prediabetic patients and 40 healthy controls with the levels of vitamin D <20 ng/ml were included in the study. All three groups were ...

Endocrinologic outcomes of gamma knife radiosurgery for acromegaly: from an endocrine clinic

Uygur Meliha Melin , Deyneli Oguzhan , Yavuz Dilek Gogas

Although surgical resection is the usual initial treatment for patients with acromegaly, it does not always lead to a remission. Gamma knife radiosurgery (GKRS) is an important additional strategy for unresected clinically active pituitary adenomas.Objective: We evaluated retrospectively pituitary hormone status as well as the efficacy of GKRS for patients with acromegaly referred to our tertiary endocrinology clinic. Prognostic factors related to outcom...
