Refractory graves’ disease dramatically responded to adjunctive colestyramine, case report and literature review.

Bilal Jajah Mohammad , Wong Heng Chun , Jayaweera Jayamalee

Background: Graves’ Disease usually responds well to medical treatment with thionamides. However, in some cases, it fails to respond to this treatment, even at maximum doses. A few reported cases have shown that colestyramine helps to restore normal thyroid function when added to the ongoing anti-thyroidal medications in refractory thyrotoxicosis. We reported a case of relapsing refractory Graves’ disease, in which colestyramine has helped to restore normal thyroid f...

T4+T3 combination therapy of refractory hypothyroidism to levothyroxine treatment, in a subject after ablative radioactive iodine treatment for differentiated thyroid cancer. A case report and review of literature.

Kermaj Marjeta , Zaimi Irsa , Resuli Klotilda , Kapia Mariola , Ylli Agron

Introduction: Hypothyroidism is considered refractory to oral levothyroxine substitution, when there is biochemical (serum level of TSH (thyroid stimulating hormone) above the upper target level) or clinical evidence of hypothyroidism, despite increasing dosages of oral levothyroxine beyond 2.5 μg/kg daily. In these circumstances, further increments in the dosage of levothyroxine may not always be the most appropriate intervention. In such a situation, physicians need to ...
