Diagnosis of subacute thyroiditis (SAT) in 2021, during COVID-19 vaccination: observation in a single private secondary endocrine centre in the Savona district, Liguria, Italy

Giusti Massimo , Sidoti Marilena

SAT due to viral infections is a cause of thyrotoxicosis, neck pain and tenderness on palpation. In the COVID-19 era, SAT seems to be a manifestation of the disease which occurs during SARS-CoV-2 infection. In 2021, some SAT cases were reported after COVID-19 vaccination. We reviewed the incidence of SAT from 2000 to 2021.

Liquid vs tablet levo-thyroxine formulation in de novo treatment of hypothyroidism in patients with Hashimoto's thyroiditis: tolerability and changes in quality of life

Sidoti Marilena , Giusti Massimo

Several levo-thyroxine (L-T4) formulations are now available. However, scientific societies discourage the use of generic L-T4 owing to its uncertain bioavailability in comparison with brand L-T4. Recent literature data suggest that using a liquid formulation of brand L-T4 improves the management of hypothyroidism. However, it is not clear whether patient satisfaction improves on liquid (LI) L-T4, as patients may initially...

Short-term effects of thyroid hormone therapy on quality-of-life evaluation by ThyPRO questionnaire in chronic autoimmune thyroiditis

Sidoti Marilena , Giusti Massimo

In chronic autoimmune thyroiditis, increased TPOAb levels have been found to be associated with impaired quality-of-life (QoL). Aim of the study was to evaluate QoL by means of ThyPRO in women with positive TPOAb levels. From January to December 2011, 62 women were invited to the study. Inclusion criteria were: age >18 years, TPOAb >100 mIU/l, no previous therapy for thyroid, no current wish to become pregnant and availability of an E-mail address. Women were randomize...

Growth is an integrated process, resulting from the response of cells to nutrient availability and to hormonal status. Nutrients, in turn, are important regulators of IGF-IGFBP system which are critical regulators of growth. Genetic factors seem to be very important determinant of final stature in countries with high quality of life at variance with underprivileged countries where food intake deficiency is critical. The aim of our study was to evaluate the influence of environ...
