Introduction: Subclinical and clinical primary hypothyroidism potentially makes a negative influence on the patient’s quality of life. Present study examined the level of hypothyroid symptoms and signs expression as well patient’s quality of life before levothyroxine and after substitutionally-induced laboratory euthyroidism.Material and methods: Prospective case–control study consisted of 75 female patients divided into three groups based...

Background: Hypothyrosis is an atherosclerosis-promoted condition. On the other hand, nitric oxide (NO) has antiatherogenic cardioprotective properties. By some Doppler ultrasound parameters (intima-media complex thickness (IMCT) and systolic velocity (SV)), one can point out the level of atherosclerosis presence in cardiovascular system out of histopathology.We primarily determine NO levels in studied population and then examine their influence on menti...

Quality of life (QoL) of hypothyroid patients can be estimated by use of numerous instruments (GHQ12 and TQ20). By rank transformation of obtained answers, calculated QoL score further determined groups, named as no distress (0–15 patients.), minor distress (16–24 patients.) and major distress (≥25 patients.). Rank transformation can be performed through Likert 0–3 as well modified 0–4 model. To groups with distress, levo-thyroxine (L-T...
