Treatment of amiodarone-induced thyrotoxicosis (AIT) type 2: a RCT

Eskes Silvia A , Wiersinga Wilmar M

Background: AIT type 2 is self-limiting in nature and therefore discontinuation of amiodarone may not be necessary; however, the feasibility of continuing amiodarone has never been tested formally. Potassium perchlorate (KClO4) may have advantage when prednisone is unsuccessful in AIT type 2, possibly due to mixed cases of types 1 and 2. KClO4 also mitigates the cytotoxic effect of desethylamiodarone on thyrocytes in vitro.Ob...

Prevalence of growth hormone deficiency in autoimmune hypothyroidism

Eskes Silvia , Endert Erik , Fliers Eric , Wiersinga Wilmar

Background: Autoimmune hypophysitis can result in growth hormone deficiency (GHD). Although autoimmune hypophysitis is uncommon, it is associated with other autoimmune endocrine diseases like autoimmune hypothyroidism (AIH). Recent studies suggest a high prevalence (5%) of GHD in AIH, which could contribute to the reduced quality of life frequently observed in patients with AIH despite adequate treatment with thyroxine.Objective: To establish the prevale...

Theel Willy , Wiebolt Janneke , Eskes Silvia , Klessens Francoise

ObjectiveThe aim of this study is to evaluate whether an increased preoperative hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) is a risk factor for postoperative complications.MethodsWe retrospectively reviewed a database of patients who underwent a laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy or a laparoscopic gastric bypass. The database was split into two cohort according to the preoperative HbA1c (> or ≤ 7 mmol/l).<p class="abs...
