Background: Overt and subclinical hypothyroidisms are associated with altered cerebral blood flow (CBF) which may be reversed with levothyroxine treatment (T4T). Subclinical hypothyroidism (SCH) is associated with fatigue but it is unclear whether fatigue is related to abnormal CBF and whether T4T has a beneficial impact. We therefore studied fatigued SCH patients before and after T4T and euthyroid non-fatigued healthy controls (HC).Methods: CBF was meas...
