Plasma Kisspeptin Levels in Hypothyroidism and Premature Newborns

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2015.287
Pages: 
525-28
Synopsis: 
Kisspeptin may play a role clarification in the newborn period of various changes. A statistically significant kisspeptin levels was determined between hypothyroid and the control groups and also a statistically significant kisspeptin levels was seen between the premature and control groups.

ABSTRACT

Aim: The purpose of this study was to determine kisspeptin levels in healthy newborns and to show whether there is significant difference kisspeptin levels between males and females in hypothyroid newborns and healthy term newborns.

Pages: 
616–21

Prevalence and Predictors of Vitamin D Insufficiency in Adolescents Living at an Intermediate Altitude

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2015.060
Synopsis: 
Vitamin D insufficiency in adolescents living at an intermediate altitude; and optimal serum 25(OH) vitamin D levels in relation to serum PTH levels was evaluated. In spring, vitamin D deficiency was detected in 17.7 % and vitamin D insufficiency was detected in 72 % of subjects. At the end of summer these rates were 1.6 % and 41.1 % respectively. Serum 25(OH)vitamin D levels at which plasma PTH concentrations begin to form a plateau is 22 ng/mL.

ABSTRACT

Although vitamin D insufficiency is very common health problem in the world, its prevalence and predictors in adolescents are controversial. We planned to evaluate prevalenve and predictors of vitamin D insufficiency in adolescents living at an intermediate altitude. We also want to give optimal serum 25(OH) vitamin D levels in relation to serum PTH levels.

The Effect of Serum Magnesium Levels and Serum Endothelin-1 Levels on Bone Mineral Density in Protein Energy Malnutrition

Issue: 
Pages: 
213–8
Synopsis: 
This study suggests that lower magnesium levels and higher endothelin-1 levels might be important factors in changes of bone mineral density in malnutrition. We recommend that the malnourished patient, especially with hypomagnesaemia, be treated with magnesium early.
