INTRODUCTION Obesity is a disease that brings several complications and increases the risk of other diseases like metabolic syndrome, diabetes mellitus type 2, or coronary heart disease. Disturbances in secretion of adipokines caused by obesity have an influence on the development of metabolic complications. The aim of this study was an investigation of(More)
Malnutrition is a common clinical problem in dialysis patients. So far the management of malnutrition in this population has not been fully successful. The aim of the study was to evaluate the efficacy and safety of use of megestrol acetate suspension in malnourished dialysis patients. Twenty-six hypoalbuminemic (albumin < or = 3.8 g/dl) dialysis patients(More)
The aim of this study was to establish the corresponding heritability estimates were 0.54 for FPI and 0.66 for RIR. Adjusting for age, gender, contribution of genetic factors to the variance of plasma insulin concentration in healthy, and body mass index did not affect heritability estimates for either FPI or RIR. Our data indicate normotensive twins.(More)
Patients with defective plasminogen activator inhibitor protein (PAI-1) or with PAI-1 deficiency can experience hemorrhage as a result of a hyperfibrinolysis. In these patients, a normal thrombus forms, but endogenous lysis is unchecked as tissue plasminogen activator is unopposed. Treatment includes anti-fibrinolytic agents, including oral tranexamic acid.(More)
BACKGROUND There is evidence that dyslipidemia is associated with chronic kidney disease (CKD) and it has been implicated in the progression of renal damage. Optimal management of dyslipidemia should therefore lead to renal benefits. A number of experimental models demonstrate a beneficial effect of statins in ameliorating renal damage. However, the exact(More)
Serum dopamine-beta-hydroxylase (DBH) activity was determined in the following diagnostic groups of patients (DSM-III-R criteria): panic disorder (n = 16), generalized anxiety disorder (n = 10), hypochondrical disorder (n = 16). Twenty healthy persons constituted the control group. Enzyme activity in the group of panic disorder (9.3 +/- 12.5 IU/l) was(More)
