Background: The management of subclinical hypothyroidism (SH) is still challenging in particular for mild forms with TSH levels ranging between 4.5 and 10 mU/L. Although SH in children seems to be a bening condition, ongoing scientific investigations have highlighted the presence of subtle proatherogenic abnormalities among children with modest elevations in their TSH levels. Data on cardiac performance in children with SH are still scanty.Aim: To compar...

Background: A variety of hormones may be down-regulated in CHF patients. Impaired activity of the GH/IGF-1 axis has been described and is associated with poor clinical status and outcome. Moreover, a decrease in serum T3 is correlated to the severity of the heart disease as assessed by the NYHA classification. Aim of this study was to evaluate a possible correlation between IGF-1 levels and T3 status in a cohort of CHF outpatients.M...
