Serum Ghrelin Levels in Patients with Chronic Urticaria and Atopic Dermatitis and Its Relation with Metabolic Syndrome

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2015.392
Synopsis: 
We detected higher serum ghrelin levels in the patients with chronic urticaria and atopic dermatitis than the controls. We think that, the high levels of serum ghrelin in the patients with chronic urticaria and atopic dermatitis may be related to the other mechanisms.

 

ABSTRACT

Objective: Chronic urticaria is a systemic inflammatory disease. Atopic dermatitis is a chronic immunological disease that is characterized by an increase in systemic inflammatory response. In several studies, chronic urticaria and atopic dermatitis were reported to be associated metabolic syndrome (MetS). In this study, we aimed to investigate the serum ghrelin levels in the patients with chronic urticaria and atopic dermatitis.
