Adipose tissue secreted hormonal mediators, adipokines play pivotal roles in the regulation of, among others, central nervous and immune systems influencing body weight, insulin action and inflammatory responses. The aim of our present study was to investigate possible associations of thyroid function with plasma levels of three of known adipokines, i.e. leptin, adiponectin and resistin in 74 Caucasian subjects without any endocrine diseases or related therapy. In order to cre...

Pregnancy induces hormonal and metabolic changes that result in profound alterations of thyroid hormone economy and regulation. Adaptation of the pituitary-thyroid axis may be influenced by the iodine supply, especially iodine deficiency.The aim of the study was to define characteristics of changes in certain biochemical parameters and regulation of thyroid function during pregnancy in a mildly iodine-deficient region of Hungary. Thirty-eight healthy pre...

Background: Widespread use of imaging has led to the detection of an increasing number of thyroid nodules. Thyroid societies have recommended the use of Thyroid Imaging, Reporting and Data System (TIRADS). However, there is a multitude of such risk stratification systems (RSS) for selecting thyroid nodules for FNA. They may be time consuming and consensus on thyroid nodule descriptors lacks. Also studies have suggested that operatorsÂ’ experience may not be inferior to usi...
