Researchers assessed the effect of thyroid hormone replacement therapy with levothyroxine on bone health among older patients with subclinical hypothyroidism.
A team of researchers investigated the influence of genetic variation on thyroid hormone concentrations.
Investigators evaluated the effect of treatment with liothyronine on quality of life in female patients with hypothyroidism and thyroid-stimulating hormone levels within reference ranges.
Investigators assessed the impact of maternal thyroid dysfunction on hypertensive disorders of pregnancy, such as gestational hypertension and pre-eclampsia.
The urinary loss of protein-bound thyroid hormone may cause or worsen hypothyroidism. A link between proteinuria and hypothyroidism was explored.
The prevalence of statin intolerance (SI) is low, according to a meta-analysis published online Feb. 15 in the European Heart Journal.
Recombinant human thyrotropin (rhTSH) has been used to increase radioiodine uptake and reduce thyroid volume of multinodular goiter. Researchers studied if this benefitted people with the condition.
Investigators sought to determine the rate of transient congenital hypothyroidism in infants diagnosed with congenital hypothyroidism with eutopic thyroid and to analyze the potential predictors of transient congenital hypothyroidism in early infancy.
Premature newborns with hypothyroidism are at risk for developing severe neurological disorders. Researchers examined whether thyroid screening at birth and again later on would yield important diagnostic information.
Hypothyroidism is common in people with affective disorders, and psychiatric drugs may increase thyroid dysfunction. Researchers explored the difference in the age of onset of affective disorders and hypothyroidism.
Thyroid hormone deficiency has a negative impact on cardiac function. Researchers studied whether irisin, a novel myokine, could help predict myocardial injuries.
