Modern study of life quality of women with subclinical hypothyroidism

Karimova Dilfuza , Adkhamova Madina , Mirzaeva Rakhshona

Objective: To study the life quality of patients with subclinical hypothyroidism by using questionnaire SF-36 before and after replacement therapy.Methods: All patients were collected at the Department of Endocrinology 3rd clinics of Tashkent Medical Academy. The study included 55 women with subclinical hypothyroidism and 20 women for the control group. The age surveyed had an average of 37,6 ± 8,83 years. Patients included in the study do not take re...

Ventricular extrasystoles as a consequence of hypothyroidism

Ghasaboghlyan Mari , Sanamyan Armine , Petrosyan Karen

Background: Hypothyroidism is a clinical condition caused by a deficiency of thyroid hormones or a decrease in their biological activity. Premature ventricular contractions (PVCs) are early depolarizations of the myocardium originating in the ventricles. Rhythms with frequent and apparently idiopathic PVCs are considered to be a benign condition that can be managed with conservative measures. Beta blockers are considered to be quite effective.Objective: ...

Characteristics of specialists delivering clinical care for hypothyroidism in eupope: the “THESIS” study (treatment of hypothyroidism in europe by specialists: an international survey)

Zarkovic Milos , Attanasio Roberto , Hegedus Laszlo , V. Nagy Endre , Negro Roberto , Papini Enrico , Perros Petros

Objectives: Some hypothyroid patients are critical of their care, although this appears to vary between countries. The quality of thyroid care delivered, and the perceived patient experience may be influenced by characteristics of specialists such as age, sex, experience, and workplace setting. Here, we aimed to explore geographical differences in thyroid specialist characteristics.Methods: THESIS is a large European questionnaire survey of thyroid speci...

Sex hormones levels and chronic autoimmune thyroiditis in a cohort of obese male patients

Sagnella Alfonso , Ciuoli Cristina , Bufano Annalisa , Benenati Nicoletta , Fralassi Noemi , Cartocci Alessandra , Grazia Castagna Maria

Introduction and Aim: Obesity is associated with an increased risk of hypothyroidism and chronic autoimmune thyroiditis (AIT). However, little is known about the underlying pathogenic mechanisms. Recently it has been evaluated the role played by sex hormones in the onset of AIT and, analysing the data from a large cohort of normal/overweight males, a positive correlation between an increased ratio of estradiol/testosterone levels (E2/T) and AIT was found. Since obese males are...

A case of late-onset dyshormonogenic goiter with hypothyroidism due to a homozygous mutation of SLC26A7 gene

Introduction: Congenital hypothiroidism (CH) is the most common neonatal endocrine disorder, affecting up to one in 1500 to 2000 newborns, if mild forms of hypothyroidism with eutopic and normal-sized thyroid gland are included. It is caused by either dysgenesis or dyshormonogenesis. Recently a novel iodide transporter, SLC26A7 (a member of the SLC26 transporter family), whose dysfunction affects thyroid hormonogenesis in humans, has been identified. The main purpose of this s...

Use of iodine in the treatment of congenital hypothyroidism with an in situ thyroid gland and of non-autoimmune subclinical hypothyroidism

Pignata Luisa , Montanelli Lucia , Bagattini Brunella , Sciarroni Elisabetta , Agretti Patrizia , De Marco Giuseppina , Ferrarini Eleonora , Tonacchera Massimo , Di Cosmo Caterina

Introduction: Congenital hypothyroidism (CH) with in situ thyroid gland (GIS) and non-autoimmune subclinical hypothyroidism (NASI) are functional defects of thyroid gland occurring at birth and after birth, respectively. In recent years, a higher incidence of these disorders has been documented. The etiology remains unclear, with only an almost 50% of cases attributable to mutations in known dyshormonogenesis-associated or TSH-receptor genes. Although replacement ther...

Evolution of congenital hypothyroidism with in situ thyroid gland in children and adolescents: Clinical and biochemical features at diagnosis and after retesting

Bagattini Brunella , Agretti Patrizia , De Marco Giuseppina , Ferrarini Eleonora , Orsolini Francesca , Sciarroni Elisabetta , Tonacchera Massimo , Montanelli Lucia , Pignata Luisa

Background: In recent years, increasing cases of congenital hypothyroidism (CH) with in situ thyroid gland (GIS) are identified. Outcome of children affected from CH with normally sited thyroid of normal size is still unknown. The objective of our study is to describe the natural history of this specific form of CH.Methods: We retrospectively evaluated clinical, biochemical and instrumental data of 89 patients with diagnosis of CH and GIS, refer...

Isolated hypothyroxinemia - not only in pregnancy

Molnar Jeannette

Isolated hypothyroxinemia is rarely and briefly mentioned in medical textbooks and seldom discussed at endocrine conferences. It is most often, but not exclusively encountered in pregnancy. The author presents cases of isolated hypothyroxinemia encountered at a private endocrine practice in Budapest, Hungary and a specialized medical practice in Berlin, Germany. In the last seven years the author encountered about thirty cases: app. 60% in women who were 17-85 years old and ap...

Human cerebral organoids as in vitro platform to assess thyroid hormone system disrupting chemicals

Fernandez-Vallone Valeria , Hellwig Lina , Opitz Robert , Obermayer-Wasserscheid Benedikt , Wiese Niklas , Rijntjes Eddy , Kohrle Josef , Mergenthaler Philipp , Stachelscheid Harald

Thyroid hormones (TH) play a fundamental role in brain development. Changes on TH availability during pregnancy and early childhood can lead to neurological disorders. Accordingly, concerns are mounting that exposure to environmental compounds capable of interfering with TH action can disrupt neuronal development. Current approaches to categorize chemicals as thyroid hormone system disrupting chemicals (THSDC) are mainly based on determination of changes in circulating TH conc...
