Thyrotoxic periodic paralysis (TPP) is uncommon complication of Graves’ disease mainly observed in young males of Asian origin. It is rarely seen among white hyperthyroid patients (0.1–0.2%), usually presented as lower extremities muscle weakness of sudden onset, probably cause by hypokalemia. Possible mechanism of hypokalemia is an increased sodium–potassium–adenosine triphosphatase pump activity with consequent massive shift og potassium from extracellula...

Background: We know that lipid profile is disturbed in both subclinical hypothyroidism (SH) and metabolic syndrome (MetSy). In this study we observed lipid profile in newly diagnosed patients with SH and MetSy.Materials and methods: We chose 70 patients (all females) with newly discovered SH and 20 healthy controls, mean age 51.1 (±6.79). The parameters that we determined are: TSH, FT4, anti-TPO-At, triglycerides, whole, LDL and HDL chole...

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...
