    Objectives: The aim of this study was to investigate the 25-hydroxyvitamin D [25(OH)D] status of children with growing pains and to evaluate the efficacy of vitamin D treatment on the resolution of pain symptoms. Subjects and Methods: One hundred and twenty children with growing pains were included in a prospective cohort study. Serum 25(OH)D and bone mineral levels were measured in all subjects at the time of enrollment. The pain intensity of those with vitamin D deficiency was measured using a pain visual analog scale (VAS). After a single oral dose of vitamin D, the pain intensity was remeasured by means of the VAS at 3 months. The 25(OH)D levels and VAS scores before and after oral vitamin D administration were compared by means of a paired Student-s t test. Results: In the 120 children with growing pains, vitamin D insufficiency was noted in 104 (86.6%). Following vitamin D supplementation, the mean 25(OH)D levels increased from 13.4 +/- 7.2 to 44.5 +/- 16.4 ng/ml, the mean pain VAS score decreased from 6.8 +/- 1.9 to 2.9 +/- 2.5 cm (a mean reduction of -3.8 +/- 2.1, p < 0.001) and the difference was statistically significant. Conclusion: Supplementation with oral vitamin D resulted in a significant reduction in pain intensity among these children with growing pains who had hypovitaminosis D. (C) 2015 S. Karger AG, Basel

    Significantly Lower Serum Adiponectin Levels in the Postmenopausal Age may be Specific for Breast Cancer Risk
    (2020-09-01T00:00:00Z) AKSOY, TURGUT; Trabulus, Didem Can; Aral, Hale; Serin, Erdinc; Talu, Canan Kelten; AKSOY, TURGUT
    Introduction: To date, biomarkers have played a minimal role in the early diagnosis of breast cancer. Although its effects on metabolism are not well known, studies have shown that hypoadiponectinaemia is associated with increased insulin resistance and risk for type-2 diabetes. We aimed to investigate the value of adiponectin together with laboratory results, anthropometric measurements and histopathological findings in assessing the risk of breast cancer and for use in early diagnosis.
