Introduction: Thyroid dysfunction may cause various psychiatric symptoms and disturbances. In addition, many factors affect the variable responses to hormone replacement. Many patients treated for Hashimoto thyroiditis(HT) report persistent impairments in general well-being despite long-term L-thyroxine (LT4) replacement and restoration of biochemical euthyroidism.Aim: To investigate the prevalence of depression and anxiety in patients with HT on long-te...

Introduction: There is an increasing awareness for intrinsic imperfections of endocrine replacement therapy affecting general well-being in the long-term. For thyroid hormone, many factors affect the variable responses to hormone replacement, like common genetic variations in deiodinase and thyroid hormone transport proteins, and the inability to provide adequate individual combined T4 and T3 therapy. Despite levothyroxine (L-T4)...

Introduction: Selenium (Se) is a trace element that plays key roles in thyroid pathology. In patients with Hashimoto thyroiditis (HT), Se supplementation might reduce antibody levels and may provide additional beneficial effects, such as on cognition.Aim: To evaluate cognitive function (cognitive decline) in patients on long-term levothyroxine replacement for primary hypothyroidism with and without selenium supplementation.Design: ...

Hypopituitarism, in particular growth hormone (GH) deficiency, is common among survivors of traumatic brain injury (TBI). We investigated neurobehavioral consequences of TBI-induced GH deficiency (GHD) in 61 patients (aged 37.7±1.7 years, 44 male/17 female) at least one year (mean, 3.9±0.6 years) after moderate and severe TBI (mean GCS score 10.6). All patients were tested with standard neuropsychological battery (MMSE, TMT, RAVLT, RCF, BNT and WCST for executive cog...
