Aim: Thyroid hormones have many effects on the cardiovascular system. May studies have showed that apparent or subclinical hypothyroidism increase the risk of hypertension hyperlipidemia and so lead to atherosclerosis susceptibility. This risk can be reduced by treatment. But, studies on the relationship between thyroid function tests and cardiovascular risk in euthyroid subjects are contradictory. This study was designed to investigate the effect of TSH, free T3, f...

The position of immunoglobuline G4 positive in Hashimoto’s thyroiditis

Cetin Zeynep , Can Bulent , Catak Merve , Baser Ozden Ozdemir , Berker Dilek , Guler Serdar

Aim: There are studies showing that Hashimoto’s thyroiditis (HT) progresses more rapidly, thyroid echogenicity is lower and thyroid autoantibodies are higher titer positive in immunoglobulin G4 (IGg4) positive patients.But a small number of studies that do not support this data have also been published.We planned this study to evaluate the findings of IgG4 (+) Hashimoto’s thyroiditis cases.Materials and methods: New diagnosis without treatment ...

Anti-thyroid drugs are usually the first choice of the treatment but surgery and radioactive iodine can also be used in treatment of hyperthyroidism. Plasmapheresis is a rapid and effective treatment option in cases where immediate euthyroidism is needed to be obtained due to complications of thyrotoxicosis and major side effects of antithyroid drugs.</p...
