Both overweight and obesity have been identified as risk factors for sexual dysfunction in men, but the relationship between sexual function and amount of body fat in females is still obscure. There are few reported studies in women assessing the relationship between female sexual function index (FSFI) and body weight. The aim of this study was to identify(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to elucidate the effectiveness of lithium carbonate prior to thyroidectomy or radioiodide therapy in patients with thyrotoxicosis. SUBJECTS AND METHODS Lithium carbonate was used as preoperative preparation or radioiodide therapy in 5 patients with Graves' disease and in 1 patient with toxic multinodular goiter because(More)
OBJECTIVE Our aim was to evaluate serum concentrations of GH, IGF-I, and insulin-like growth factor-binding protein-3 (IGFBP-3) in patients with subclinical thyroid dysfunction before and after normalization of thyroid function. DESIGN AND METHODS The study included 51 patients (mean age 42.2+/-1.8 years) with subclinical hypothyroidism and 30 patients(More)
BACKGROUND/AIM Despite combined therapy consisting of surgery, external X-ray, and medical therapy, a significant number of acromegaly patients continue to have uncontrolled growth hormone (GH) secretion and active disease. These patients, particularly those with large or invasive tumors, require additional therapy to decrease their GH levels. Our aim was(More)
The article describes a case of Graves' disease treated with methimazole and examines the influence of methimazole-induced alterations of thyroid hormone concentrations during warfarin therapy. A 22-year-old woman presented at our endocrinology outpatient clinic with palpitations, sweating, fatigue, tremors, and diarrhea. She had a pain in her right leg and(More)
BACKGROUND Adiponectin is an adipocytes-derived hormone which has been shown to possess insulin-sensitizing, antiatherogenic, and anti-inflammatory properties. In acromegaly, the data on adiponectin is contradictory. The relationship between adiponectin levels and cardiac parameters has not been studied. OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to find out(More)
OBJECTIVE Familial partial lipodystrophy (FPLD) is a rare genetic disorder characterized by partial lack of subcutaneous fat. METHODS This multicenter prospective observational study included data from 56 subjects with FPLD (18 independent Turkish families). Thirty healthy controls were enrolled for comparison. RESULTS Pathogenic variants of the LMNA(More)
Alterations in thyroid function are associated with changes in body weight, metabolism, and low-grade inflammation abnormal thyroid function may be associated with disturbances in the production of adipokines also. Although there have been studies showing changes in visfatin levels in thyroid dysfunction, exact relationship between them was still unclear.(More)
BACKGROUND Acromegaly is characterized by excess growth hormone and insulin-like growth factor-1 concentrations. There is conflicting evidence as to whether acromegaly is associated with an increased risk of atherosclerosis. Apelin is an adipose tissue-derived peptide that may be associated with hyperinsulinemia. Fetuin-A is a hepatocyte produced plasma(More)
