Management of persistent TSH elevation in hypothyroid patients

Eligar Vinay , Min Thinzar , Jones Martin

Inappropriately raised TSH levels in patients on thyroxine replacement therapy are frequently encountered in clinical practice. Following discussing patient compliance with medication, causes of thyroxine malabsorption including drug interactions, coeliac disease or autoimmune gastritis should be considered. We describe the investigation of a patient with persistently elevated TSH levels in spite of apparently taking adequate thyroxine replacement.Case H...

Insulin and glucose homeostasis 5 years after bariatric surgery

Min Thinzar , Barry Jonathan , Caplin Scott , Stephens Jeffrey

Background: Literature suggests that whole glucose excursion, rather than plasma glucose concentration at a point, provides more information about glucose tolerance. The glucose area under the curve (AUC) is an index of whole glucose excursion after glucose load. We sought to investigate changes in insulin and glucose homeostasis, including the glucose AUC, 5 years after bariatric surgery.Method: A non-randomised prospective study of 18 participants with...

Temporal effect of bariatric surgery on predicted 10-year and lifetime cardiovascular risk at 1 and 6 months and 5 years

Min Thinzar , Caplin Scott , Barry Jonathan , Stephens Jeffrey

Background: Bariatric surgery aims to decrease cardiovascular risk factors. The Swedish Obese Subjects study reported that bariatric surgery was associated with reduction in long-term cardiovascular (CV) event. However, uncertainty remains regarding the effect of bariatric surgery on long-term CV risk. One way to predict long-term CV risk after bariatric surgery is to use cardiovascular risk assessment models.Aim: The aim of this study is to investigate ...
