MRI-based proton-density fat fraction measurements reveal alterations of abdominal fat, bone and muscle composition in lean women with PCOS

Oguz Seda H. , Idilman İlkay S. , Helvaci Nafiye , Karcaaltincaba Musturay , Yildiz Bulent Okan

Background: Proton-density fat fraction (PDFF), derived from chemical shift encoding-based water-fat magnetic resonance imaging, has emerged as an important surrogate method for calculation of fat composition in a number of tissues including liver, vertebrae and muscles. This study aims to determine whether fat composition of these tissues, as well as visceral and subcutaneous adiposity differ between women with PCOS and healthy controls.Methods: 17 lean...

Background and aim: Incidentally discovered adrenal masses (adrenal incidentalomas (AI)), generally 1 cm or more in diameter, are mostly benign and asymptomatic and are often considered as nonfunctional tumors. The aim of this study was to perform the imaging characteristics, endocrinologic screening and histologic diagnoses of adrenal incidentaloma cases encountered in our institute.Methods: This retrospective evaluation of patients with AI includes 543...

Effects of L-thyroxine treatment on resistin and high-sensitive CRP levels in patients with subclinical hypothyroidism

Aksoy Duygu Yazgan , Harmanci Ayla , Cinar Nese , Yildiz Bulent Okan , Usman Aydan , Bayraktar Miyase

Background: Subclinical hypothyroidism (SH) is an endocrine disorder defined by increased thyrotropin (TSH) levels associated with normal free thyroxine (fT4) and free triiodothyronine (fT3). Resistin is secreted from the adipose tissue and is reported to be associated with insulin resistance and/or inflammation. High-sensitive CRP (hs-CRP) is a reliable marker of inflammation. Data related to levels of resistin and hS-CRP in SH is limited.<p class="a...

Primary hyperparathyroidism and synchronous thyroid disorders: a single center experience

Gedik Arzu , Aksoy Duygu Yazgan , Harmanci Ayla , Yildiz Bulent Okan , Bayraktar Miyase

Background: High association of concomitant thyroid and parathyroid disorders has been reported. The aim of this study was to determine the prevalence and characteristics of thyroid disorders associated with primary hyperparathyroidism (PHPT) in Turkey, a country with mild iodine deficinency.Material and method: We retrospectively reviewed the records of patients diagnosed with PHPT between 1980 and 2007 at our clinic and analyzed the data related to thy...

Aksoy Duygu Yazgan , Cinar Nese , Levendoglu Fuat , Canikli Yasemin , Yildiz Bulent Okan , Bayraktar Miyase , Usman Aydan , Ilbars Zafer

Introduction: Complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) is a group of diverse medical and health care systems, practices, and products that are not presently considered to be part of conventional medicine. For most of CAM, there are key questions that are yet to be answered through well-designed scientific studies. Obesity is one of the chronic health disorders which is difficult to deal and most of the obese patients are unable to lose or keep weight with diet, exercise or...

Aim: Gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) is an important public health issue associated with significant short- and long-term morbidity both for mother and offspring. Prevalence rates of GDM show considerable variation among different countries and regions of the world. The primary aim of this study was to determine the nationwide prevalence and predictors of GDM in Turkey.Materials and methods: We conducted a prospective nationwide screening among pregn...
