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.

Radiological Score in Malnourished and Well-nourished Children with Active Rickets

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2015.008
Pages: 
616–21
Synopsis: 
Radiological evidence and healing process of rickets were similar in both the well-nourished and malnourished groups with rickets. We also recommend that radiological follow-up duration may be extended to at least 12 weeks.

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.

The Evaluation of the Effects of Paternal and Maternal Silent Coeliac Disease on Birthweight and Gestational Age in Newborns

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2013.166
Pages: 
470–3
Synopsis: 
Silent coeliac disease may occur in parents especially in mothers of preterm and small gestational age infants even in the absence of apparent clinical indications.
ABSTRACT
 

Objective: Coeliac disease is a chronic disease and is common all over the world. It has many other associated systemic side effects. This study investigated the effect of paternal and maternal  silent coeliac disease on birthweight and gestational age in newborns.

Association between Anthropometric Hormonal Measurements and Bone Mineral Density in Puberty and Constitutional Delay of Growth and Puberty

Issue: 
Pages: 
125–30
Synopsis: 
The most important finding was the determination of body composition and hormonal measurement changes in puberty in boys. Oestradiol was the most potent determinant of bone mineral density among pubertal boys.

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.

Adverse Reaction of Topical Etofenamate: Petechial Eruption

DOI: 
Doi:10.7727/wimj.2011.029

Etofenamate is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID). Clinical findings caused by etofenamate are uncommon. Allergic contact dermatitis is the most common cutaneous reaction reported. But petechial eruption due to etofenamate had not been reported yet. This report concerns an 11-year old male with petechial eruption after application of topical etofenamate.
Physicians need to be aware that patients can develop an asymptomatic purpuric eruption when etofenamate is ordered.

Effects of Steroid Treatment on Bone Mineral Metabolism in Children with Glucocorticoid-sensitive Nephrotic Syndrome

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2011.046
Pages: 
627–30
Synopsis: 
Bone mineralization was negatively affected by steroid treatment in children with nephrotic syndrome. These children should undergo regular bone mineral density evaluation, and an appropriate therapeutic approach should be planned.
