Introduction: Selenium (Se) is a trace element that plays key roles in thyroid pathology. In patients with Hashimoto thyroiditis (HT), Se supplementation might reduce antibody levels and may provide additional beneficial effects, such as on cognition.Aim: To evaluate cognitive function (cognitive decline) in patients on long-term levothyroxine replacement for primary hypothyroidism with and without selenium supplementation.Design: ...

Which is the best tool to use when initiating the differential diagnosis of a thyrotoxic patient? A challenge to current guideline recommendations

Perdomo Carolina , Ramos Elisa Gil , Buey Gala Gutierrez , Llavero Maria , Gargallo Javier , Arbizu Javier , de la Higuera Magdalena , Galofre Juan C

Aim: Differential diagnosis (DD) of thyrotoxicosis is critical as the treatment of the three main causes of this condition (Graves’ disease [GD], Toxic Multinodular Goitre [TMG], and Thyroiditis [TS]) differs substantially. Recently published diagnostic algorithms investigating hyperthyroidism embrace the presence of thyrotropin receptor (TSH-R) antibodies (TRab) as the first and most cruicial diagnostic step. Although TRab measurement has important limitations (some can ...

Cardiovascular risk factors in patients with autoimmune thyroiditis

Neves Joao Sergio , Cunha Catarina , Neves Celestino , Oliveira Sofia Castro , Sokhatska Oksana , Dias Camila , Esteves Cesar , Pereira Miguel , Medina Jose Luis , Delgado Luis , Carvalho Davide

Background: Overt thyroid dysfunction is associated with an increased cardiovascular risk. The impact of subclinical hypothyroidism and autoimmunity in the increased cardiovascular risk remains controversial. Aim: To evaluate the interrelations between thyroid function, thyroid autoimmunity and cardiovascular risk factors, in patients with autoimmune thyroiditis (AIT).Methods: 353 subjects with AIT were evaluated. We defined three groups based on TSH lev...

Evaluation of the effectiveness of personalized radioiodine treatment in Graves’ disease

Fernandes Ana , Faria Teresa , Oliveira Ana , Pereira Jorge , Coelho Pedro

Aim: Radioiodine activities for the treatment of Graves’ disease hyperthyroidism are still subject to discussion, as is the use of a fixed approach over a dosimetric one. We aimed to evaluate our success rate using a personalized dosimetric approach: instead of the “(MBq I-131×g gland mass×100)/(percentage uptake at 24 h)” activity calculation, we further adjusted for factors such as gender, age, diagnosis, 2 h and 4 h radioiodine uptake, previous medi...

Citrus flavanones naringenin and hesperetin induced mild functional alteration in thyroids of old-aged Wistar rats

Miler Marko , Ajdzanovic Vladimir , Ristic Natasa , Filipovic Branko , Uscebrka Gordana , Miljic Dragana , Milosevic Verica , Sosic-Jurjevic Branka

Aging is a complex process characterized by a progressive decline in cellular function, alterations of the endocrine system and the increased incidence of thyroid diseases. Citrus flavanones naringenin (NAR) and hesperetin (HES) may contribute to maintenance of health at old age however they may also affect thyroid hormone economy. The aim of this study was to test weather NAR or HES administration alter thyroid functioning. NAR or HES were administrated orally (15 mg/kg) to m...

The oxford multidisciplinary thyroid eye disease (TED) clinic; can short waiting times and use of steroid sparing agents (SSA) reduce total steroid dose and requirement for surgery/radiotherapy?

Turner Helen , David Joel , Norris Jonathan

Introduction: The Oxford multidisciplinary thyroid eye disease (TED) clinic comprising an oculoplastic surgeon, rheumatologist and endocrinologist with access to orthoptics, neuroradiology and radiotherapy was established in 2013. The aim was to facilitate rapid referral and treatment in a specialist centre in keeping with Amsterdam Declaration. Early use of steroid sparing agents (SSA) and recently rituximab forms part of the treatment regimen.Methods: ...

24-month efficacy of a single radiofrequency ablation on autonomously functioning thyroid nodules

Bernardi Stella , Stacul Fulvio , Michelli Andrea , Calabro Veronica , Giudici Fabiola , Dobrinja Chiara , Fabris Bruno

Background: Radiofrequency ablation has been advocated as an alternative to radioiodine and/or surgery for the treatment of autonomously functioning benign thyroid nodules. However, only a few studies have measured radiofrequency ablation efficacy on autonomously functioning benign thyroid nodules. The aim of this work was to evaluate the 24-month efficacy of a single session of radiofrequency ablation (performed with the moving shot technique) on solitary autonomously functio...

Association of vitamin D levels with thyroid function and autoimmunity

Raposo Luis , Martins Sandra , Ferreira Daniela , Guimaraes Joao Tiago , Santos Ana Cristina

Introduction: Vitamin D is a hormone that acts through the Vitamin D receptor (VDR) not only on the skeletal system but on a great number of target tissues, including thyroid gland. In recent years the association of vitamin D with autoimmune thyroid diseases (AITD), has been suggested.VDR gene polymorphisms had been associated with an increased risk of AITD. In addition a recent meta-analysis showed that AITD patients had lower level of 25-hydroxyvitami...
