OBJECTIVES We evaluated the relationships between sex steroid levels and heart rate variability (HRV) parameters. STUDY DESIGN The study included 114 male subjects (mean age 46.6±11.3 years) presenting to our department for cardiologic evaluation. Hormonal analysis included serum levels of luteinizing hormone, prolactin, total testosterone (TT), free(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to investigate the presence of autonomic dysfunction in patients with osteoporosis. DESIGN This is a prospective controlled trial. Sixteen postmenopausal female patients with osteoporosis and 10 age-matched postmenopausal nonosteoporotic controls were included in the study. Participants were divided into the(More)
To evaluate the relationship between the adiponectin levels and left ventricular mass index (LVMI) in uncomplicated obese subjects. Fifty-nine subjects were assigned to the obese (BMI> or =30 kg/m(2)) and 58 to the lean (BMI<30 kg/m (2) ) group. Plasma glucose, insulin, serum total cholesterol and high density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol, low density(More)
OBJECTIVES We investigated differences in autonomic activity in normotensive individuals having optimal, normal and high-normal blood pressure (BP) levels according to the guidelines of the European Society of Hypertension and European Society of Cardiology (ESH/ESC). STUDY DESIGN The study included 294 normotensive subjects (135 males, 159 females; age(More)
AIM In this study, we aimed to investigate the relationship between heart rate recovery (HRR) time and Chronotropic Index (CHIND) parameters, which also reflect autonomic function, after exercise stress test (EST) in males with or without erectile dysfunction (ED), and we investigated the relationship between HRR and CHIND and serum steroid hormone levels.(More)
OBJECTIVE We aimed to investigate the effects of autonomic and left ventricular functional and structural changes on QT interval and dispersion differences between normal and prehypertensive patients. METHODS A total of 291 normotensive patients (<140/90 mmHg) (135 males, age range: 16-75 years, mean age: 45+/- 11 years; 156 females, age range: 17-71(More)
OBJECTIVES To investigate the effect of statin treatment on serum sex steroid levels, heart rate variability, erectile function, and libido in patients with hyperlipidemia. METHODS A total of 74 patients (mean age 44.7 +/- 7.1 years) with hyperlipidemia were enrolled into this study. After a cardiac examination, the serum lipid levels were measured, and(More)
BACKGROUND We aimed to investigate differences in circadian autonomic changes in patients suffering from hyperlipidemia with and without erectile dysfunction and compared results to control cases. MATERIALS AND METHODS A total of 77 patients (age range: 24-74, mean age: 45.3 ± 9.3) with uncontrolled hyperlipidemia (total cholesterol >200 mg/dL and/or LDL(More)
OBJECTIVE It is known that increased sympathetic activity and decreased parasympathetic activity are present in patients with fibromyalgia syndrome (FMS). This study aims to investigate the correlations of autonomic dysfunction and differences in autonomic circadian activity with arrhythmia prevalence in women with FMS. METHODS Fifty female patients with(More)
