Inal Salih , Karakoc Mehmet Ayhan , Kan Erdal , Toruner Fusun Balos , Aslan Metin

‘Nondippers’ are individuals with absence of anticipated nocturnal decrease in blood pressure (BP) and increased incidence of target organ damage. The pathogenesis of nondipper hypertension is not clear at present. We aimed to investigate the effect of overt and subclinical hypothyroidism on the development of nondipper blood pressure pattern via 24-hour ambulatory blood pressure monitoring.

Objective: In differentiated thyroid carcinoma (DTC), TSH suppression with levothyroxine (L-T4) is a standard treatment for reducing tumor recurrence after total thyroidectomy. This study aims to evaluate the effect of long-term TSH suppression on the development of sarcopenia and frailty in elderly patients with DTC.Method: Seventy patients aged 60 years and older with stable TSH levels during the last year and under L-T4 due to DTC were included in the...
