AIM This study aimed to compare thyroid functions, thyroid autoantibodies, and the existence of nonthyroidal illness syndrome (NTIS) according to vitamin D level. MATERIALS AND METHODS The study included age- and BMI-matched healthy volunteers with and without vitamin D deficiency. In addition, the nonthyroidal illness syndrome status was evaluated. (More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the effects of ultrasound (US)-guided percutaneous laser ablation (PLA) in the treatment of benign solid hypoactive thyroid nodules on nodule volume, thyroid functions, nodule cytology and patients' complaints. MATERIAL AND METHOD Criteria for enrollment in the study were as follows: patients with euthyroid, benign, hypofunctional(More)
Autoimmune thyroiditis (AIT) is a systemic disease. It is well-known that overt thyroid dysfunction is a cardiovascular risk factor. However, the influence of euthyroid status is unclear. The aim of this study was to evaluate the metabolic parameters and carotid intima-media thickness (CIMT) in euthyroid premenopausal women with AIT. Fourty-eight(More)
INTRODUCTION The coexistence of thyroid nodules and autoimmune thyroid disease (ATD) has been widely reported. The aim of our study was to retrospectively evaluate the prevalence and sonographic features of malignancy of thyroid nodules in ATD patients. MATERIAL AND METHODS We retrospectively analysed data from 500 patients with ATD in our hospital. We(More)
Both insulin resistance (IR) and vitamin D deficiency (VDD) are found to be associated with many cancer types. In this study, we evaluated the presence of IR and VDD in thyroid cancer patients based on controls. Total 344 papillary thyroid cancer and 116 controls were part of the study. Glucose, insulin, homeostasis model analysis-insulin resistance(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of hyperprolactinemia on body fat, insulin sensitivity, inflammatory markers, and cardiovascular risk in patients with prolactinoma. METHODS The study included 35 untreated hyperprolactinemic patients with pituitary adenomas, and 36 age-, gender-, and body mass index (BMI)-matched healthy controls(More)
CONTEXT Several studies have reported increased risk of cardiovascular disease due to early development of endothelial dysfunction and structural vascular changes in patients with acromegaly. OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to evaluate subclinical cardiovascular disease with epicardial fat thickness (EFT), aortic stiffness and serum levels of cell(More)
OBJECTIVE Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is one of the most common endocrine disorders affecting reproductive-age women and is reported to be associated with an increased risk of cardiovascular disease and early atherosclerosis. Epicardial fat thickness (EF) is clinically related to subclinical atherosclerosis and visceral fat changes. Therefore, the(More)
AIMS We aimed to investigate, circulating vaspin, apelin-12 and apelin-36 levels in subjects with metabolic syndrome (MetS) and also to search for the association of vaspin and apelin levels with insulin resistance (IR), high sensitivity C-reactive protein (HsCRP), Carotid Artery Intima-Media Thickness (CIMT) and cardiovascular risk factors. METHODS In(More)
