Introduction: Several studies identified pre-treatment parameters that could help in the prediction of the thyroid functional outcome after radioactive iodine therapy (RAI) in Graves’ disease. However, the role of the thyroid peroxidase antibody (TPO Ab) status is not well studied.Objectives: We investigated if a positive TPO Ab status before radioactive iodine (RAI) therapy in patients with Graves’ hyperthyroidism is a predictive factor for de...

Aim: To determine the association between thyroid function and the risk for gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) and adverse pregnancy outcomes.Methods: This case-control study was a sub-analysis of the BEDIP-N study, in which 199 GDM women were matched for age and body mass index with 398 controls. Thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH), free thyroxine (fT4), free triiodothyronine (fT3), and thyroid peroxidase (TPO) antibodies were measured at 6-14 weeks and ...
