Background: Pituitary prolactin secretion is physiologically supressed by dopaminergic tonus from hypothalamus, which itself is under regulation by various hypothalamic releasing factors. We Disturbed dopaminergic tonus in patients with liver cirrhosis is suspected.The aim of our study was to measure prolactin levels in patients with cirrhosis and to investigate the relatioship between the severity of liver disease and other clinical and laboratory param...

Background: Thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) might influence bone mineral density (BMD) through its regulation of the thyroid hormones thyroxine (T4) and triiodthyronine (T3). Direct effect of TSH on bone turnover, mediated through its receptors on both osteoblast and osteoclast precursors, has been suggested. We wanted to explore the relationship between serum TSH, fT4 and BMD in women with different TSH levels after a long-term observation of thyroid function and bone statu...
