BACKGROUND: High intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) is a promising ablation technique for benign thyroid nodules. However, its effect on underlying thyroid function remains unknown. We aimed to evaluate the 6 months changes in serum thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) and free thyroxine (FT4) after HIFU treatment. METHODS: Eighty-three consecutive patients who underwent single HIFU ablation for symptomatic benign thyroid nodule were analysed. Eligible patients had serum TSH and FT4 checked before treatment (baseline), 1 week, 3 and 6 months following HIFU treatment...

OBJECTIVE: The definition itself of subclinical hyperthyroidism (SHyper) and, therefore, the therapeutic approach to patients with SHyper still remains undefined and controversial. Therefore, the interest of finding a novel and alternative therapy for SHyper has caught the attention. An observational pilot study was performed to assess the effects of l-carnitine and selenium in the management of SHyper symptoms and endocrine profile in patients affected by this disease. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Patients with TSH levels between 0...

PURPOSE: Overt hypothyroidism has adverse clinical consequences and might worsen prognosis in critically ill elderly patients. However, the difficult interpretation of thyroid function tests (TFT) due to non-thyroidal illness (NTI) has led to discouragement of screening for thyroid dysfunction. Our aim was to determine the prevalence of TFT compatible with hypothyroidism and to study its influence on mortality among hospitalized elderly patients. METHODS: In this prospective study we consecutively included all patients ≥60 years admitted by the Internal Medicine Department to the hospital ward (n = 451) of the Cesar Milstein Hospital in Buenos Aires, Argentina...

REVIEW
Jia Liu, Jing Fu, Yuan Xu, Guang Wang
Graves' disease (GD) is the most common cause of hyperthyroidism worldwide. Current therapeutic options for GD include antithyroid drugs (ATD), radioactive iodine, and thyroidectomy. ATD treatment is generally well accepted by patients and clinicians due to some advantages including normalizing thyroid function in a short time, hardly causing hypothyroidism, and ameliorating immune disorder while avoiding radiation exposure and invasive procedures. However, the relatively high recurrence rate is a major concern for ATD treatment, which is associated with multiple influencing factors like clinical characteristics, treatment strategies, and genetic and environmental factors...

PURPOSE: Children from smoking mothers have a higher risk of developing obesity and associated comorbidities later in life. Different experimental models have been used to assess the mechanisms involved with this increased risk. Using a rat model of neonatal nicotine exposure via implantation of osmotic minipumps in lactating dams, we have previously shown marked sexual dimorphisms regarding metabolic and endocrine outcomes in the adult progeny. Considering that more than four thousand substances are found in tobacco smoke besides nicotine, we then studied a rat model of neonatal tobacco smoke exposure: adult male offspring had hyperphagia, obesity, hyperglycemia, hypertriglyceridemia, secondary hyperthyroidism and lower adrenal hormones...

BACKGROUND: Antiviral treatment is currently not recommended for patients with chronic hepatitis B with a low viral load. However, they might benefit from acquiring a functional cure (hepatitis B surface antigen [HBsAg] loss with or without formation of antibodies against hepatitis B surface antigen [anti-HBs]). We assessed HBsAg loss during peg-interferon-alfa-2a (peg-IFN) and nucleotide analogue combination therapy in patients with chronic hepatitis B with a low viral load. METHODS: In this randomised controlled, open-label trial, patients were enrolled from the Academic Medical Center (AMC), Amsterdam, Netherlands...

A 54-year-old man diagnosed with type 2 diabetes and hyperthyroidism was prescribed propylthiouracil (PTU) after the patient developed hepatic dysfunction on thiamazole. At 50 mg/day of PTU, he was stable with thyroid-stimulating hormone receptor and thyrotropic antibody titers remaining stable. After four years of taking PTU, he was referred to the Department of Nephrology due to a rapid increase in his serum creatinine (Cr) level. He showed impaired renal function (Cr 2.26 mg/dL; estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR), 25 mL/min)...

Dyschromatosis symmetrica hereditaria (DSH) is a rare genodermatosis characterized by various sizes of both hyper- and hypopigmented macules arranged in reticulated patterns on the face and the dorsal aspects of the extremities. There are also cutaneous and extracutaneous abnormalities, but they are rare. As far as we know, DSH associated with immune-mediated conditions has not been reported. We report the first case of DSH, which is associated with cutaneous lupus erythematosus and hyperthyroidism.

Children with low levels of thyroid hormones (hypothyroidism) have delayed tooth eruption, enamel hypoplasia, micrognathia, and anterior open bite, whereas children with hyperthyroidism may suffer from accelerated tooth eruption, maxillary, and mandibular osteoporosis. However, it is still unknown whether thyroid function variations within the normal or subclinical range also have an impact on hard dental tissues in healthy children. The objective of this study was, therefore, to investigate the association between thyroid function from the fetal period until early childhood and dental development at school age...

The thyroid hormones (THs), triiodothyronine (T3) and thyroxine (T4), are very important in organism metabolism and regulate glucose utilization. Hexokinase (HK) is responsible for the first step of glycolysis, catalyzing the conversion of glucose to glucose 6-phosphate. HK has been found in different cellular compartments, and new functions have been attributed to this enzyme. The effects of hyperthyroidism on subcellular glucose phosphorylation in mouse tissues were examined. Tissues were removed, subcellular fractions isolated from eu- and hyperthyroid (T3, 0...
