OBJECTIVE: To determine if various medical conditions affect the serum concentrations of 3,3'-diiodothyronine (3,3'-T2). METHODS: A total of 100 patients who were recruited from a group of inpatients and outpatients with a diverse range of medical conditions, donated a single blood sample that was assayed for thyroid hormone derivatives using liquid-chromatography tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS). The associations between 3,3'-T2 concentrations and physiologic data and medical conditions were assessed...

CONTEXT: In low-risk differentiated thyroid cancer (DTC), postoperative (131)I remnant ablation should employ a minimum effective activity; reports increasingly suggest efficacy of low activities, e.g. 1110 MBq/30 mCi. OBJECTIVES, DESIGN, PATIENTS, AND INTERVENTIONS: We retrospectively studied the ablation capability and diagnostic utility of the Minidose protocol, two 740-MBq/20 mCi outpatient administrations, 6-18 months apart, plus related diagnostic procedures, in 160 consecutive (near-) totally thyroidectomized low-risk DTC (pT1/N0-Nx) patients...

AIM: The aim of this study was to test the possibility of enhancing blood calcium levels in totally thyroidectomized patients by supplementation with 1 L/d carbonate-bicarbonate-high-calcium mineral water. METHODS: This study enrolled 95 outpatients, totally thyroidectomized four months earlier, and hence treated with oral calcium and vitamin-D. At recruitment, ionized blood calcium was either below (Group A; N. 55) or above (Group B; N. 40, randomly divided in Group B1 [N...
