BACKGROUND: Metformin was found to reduce elevated serum thyrotropin levels. No previous study has compared the effect of this drug on serum levels of thyrotropin and thyroid hormones between men and women. METHODS: The study included 23 women and 12 men with subclinical hypothyroidism, who because of coexisting diabetes or impaired fasting glucose were treated with metformin (1.7-3.0g daily). Fasting plasma glucose levels, the homeostatic model assessment 1 of insulin resistance ratio (HOMA1-IR), glycated hemoglobin, serum levels of thyrotropin, free and total thyroid hormones and prolactin, as well as thyroid peroxidase and thyroglobulin antibodies were assessed at baseline and after 4 months of metformin treatment...

The recent discovery of browning of white adipose tissue (WAT) has raised great research interest because of its significant potential in counteracting obesity and type II diabetes. However, the mechanisms underlying browning are still poorly understood. Liver X receptors (LXRs) are one class of nuclear receptors, which play a vital role in regulating cholesterol, triglyceride and glucose metabolism. Following our previous finding that LXRs serve as repressors of UCP1 in classic brown adipose tissue in female mice, we found that LXRs, especially LXRβ, also repress the browning process of subcutaneous adipose tissue (SAT) in male rodents fed a normal diet...

Myo-inositol and phosphatidylinositol(s) play a pivotal function in many metabolic pathways that, if impaired, impact unfavorably on human health. This review analyzes several experimental and clinical investigations regarding the involvement of this class of molecules in physiological and pathological situations, with a major focus on thyroid. Central issues are the relationship between phosphatidylinositol and thyrotropin (TSH) signaling on one hand, and phosphatydylinositol and autoimmunity on the other hand...

BACKGROUND: Chronic metformin treatment was found to reduce elevated thyrotropin levels. Amiodarone treatment is associated with a range of effects in thyroid function from mild derangements to overt thyroid dysfunction. No previous study has investigated the effect of metformin on hypothalamic-pituitary-thyroid axis activity in patients with amiodarone-induced hypothyroidism. METHODS: The study included three age-, sex- and weight-matched groups of amiodarone-treated patients with type 2 diabetes: patients with treated overt hypothyroidism (group I, n=15), patients with untreated subclinical hypothyroidism (group II, n=15), and subjects without thyroid disorders (group III, n=18)...

Several studies have now reported associations between gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) and low free thyroxine (fT4) during the second and third trimesters, but not in the first trimester. The present study further examines relationships between low fT4, maternal weight, and GDM among women in the FaSTER (First and Second Trimester Evaluation of Risk) trial, in an effort to determine the extent to which thyroid hormones might contribute to causality. The FaSTER cohort includes 9351 singleton, euthyroid women; 272 of these women were subsequently classified as having GDM...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Increased carotid artery intima-media thickness (IMT) and the presence of plaques have been shown to be predictors of cardiovascular disease. The cardiovascular risk in patients with overt thyroid diseases is related to increased risk of atherosclerosis, but there has been no clear evidence about subclinical disorders. We have assessed whether subclinical thyroid dysfunction is associated with arterial thickening and plaque. METHODS AND RESULTS: The SardiNIA study is a population-based survey on the Italian island of Sardinia...
