Evidence suggests that acute and chronic hyperglycemia can cause oxidative stress in the peripheral nervous system which, in turn, can promote the development of diabetic neuropathy. Recent studies have found increased expression of glial fibrillary acidic protein (GFAP) and S100B, both of which are indicators of glial reactivity, in the neural and retinal(More)
Data examining the association between vitamin D and diabetic peripheral neuropathy are limited. This study investigated the serum levels of vitamin D, vitamin D-binding protein (VDBP), and vitamin D receptor (VDR) in diabetics in the Yozgat region of Turkey, and assessed their relationships with diabetic peripheral neuropathy. 69 diabetic patients and 49(More)
Arteriovenous fistula presents rarely with ascites. Diagnosis, with an elusive clinical presentation, is often incidental or delayed. A 35-year-old woman presented with ascites and cardiac decompensation. Contrast enhanced computed tomography revealed arteriovenous fistula between the left common iliac artery aneurysm and the left common iliac vein. The(More)
OBJECTIVES Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV) is a frequently encountered condition that can severely affect quality of life. Present study was undertaken to investigate whether the platelet (PLT) indices, including mean platelet volume (MPV), platelet distribution width (PDW), and platelet crit (PCT), could serve as diagnostic tools in patients(More)
We report a 20-year-old woman with sickle cell disease (SCD) who presented with a severe pulsating headache, nausea, and vomiting. Her history was significant for a past thrombotic event during which she had not used anticoagulation therapy as prescribed. Her mental status was mildly confused. On funduscopic examination, papilledema and retinal hemorrhages(More)
Evidence suggests that migraine is associated with metabolic syndrome, which is also implicated in non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). Reported for the first time, we aimed to investigate the relationship between migraine and NAFLD in patients with migraine. A total of 90 consecutive migraine patients were enrolled in this cross-sectional study. The(More)

Objective. Recent studies have demonstrated that enteric glial cells (EGC) participate in the homeostasis of the gastrointestinal tract. This study investigated whether enteroglial markers, including S100B protein and glial fibrillary acidic protein (GFAP), can serve as noninvasive indicators of EGC activation and disease activity in UC patients. Methods.(More)
Irritability is one of the main moods of humans. It is a behavioral manifestation of easy annoyance, touchiness and is characterized by emotion of anger and temper outbursts [1]. Esomeprazole, which is the last member of proton-pump inhibitors (PPIs) presented to the market, is used to treat gastrooesophageal reflux, gastritis, and peptic ulcer diseases.(More)
