Abstract

Introduction: The relationship between vitamin D and extraskeletal system disorders is still being investigated. Researches about a possible relation between adrenal diseases and vitamin D levels are ongoing in recent years. Our aim in this study was to evaluate the vitamin D levels in patients with nonfunctional adrenal adenomas.

Methods: This study included 50 patients with non-functional adrenal adenoma and 30 healthy controls. BMIs were normal in 15 of the control group and the remaining 15 were obese. BMI and waist circumference of the patients were measured. The 25 OH vitamin D levels, lipid parameters, glucose levels, insulin levels, C-peptide levels were measured and HOMA of the patients were calculated.

Results: Patients with non-functional adrenal adenomas were compared with obese and non-obese control groups. Also, patients were compared with whole control group. There was not statistically significant difference 25 OH vitamin D levels, lipid parameters, glucose levels, insulin levels, C-peptide and HOMA levels. In the correlation analysis, in patients with 25 hydroxy vitamin D levels under 20ng/ml, BMI levels were inversely correlated with 25 OH vitamin D levels in both patient and control groups.

Conclusion: In patient with nonfunctional adrenal adenomas 25 hydroxy vitamin D levels were not different from the normal population.
