CONTEXT AND OBJECTIVE: End-stage renal disease patients have a higher risk of thyroid disease compared to those without kidney disease. While thyroid dysfunction is associated with higher death risk in the general population and those undergoing hemodialysis, little is known about the impact of thyroid disease upon mortality in peritoneal dialysis (PD) patients. Design, Setting, Participants, and Main Outcome: We examined the association of thyroid status, assessed by serum TSH, with all-cause mortality among PD patients from a large national dialysis organization who underwent one or more TSH measurements over five years (1/2007-12/2011)...

Chronic kidney disease has been known to affect thyroid hormone metabolism. Low serum levels of T3 and T4 are the most remarkable laboratorial findings. A high incidence of goiter and nodules on thyroid ultrasonography has been reported in patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD). Our objective is to evaluate the prevalence of laboratorial and morphologic alterations in the thyroid gland in a cohort of patients with ESRD on hemodialysis (HD). Sixty-one patients with ESRD on HD were selected and compared with 43 healthy subjects matched by age, gender, and weight...

Crow-Fukase syndrome, also known as POEMS syndrome, is a rare plasma dyscrasia characterized by monoclonal gammopathy and various combinations of polyneuropathy, organomegaly, endocrinopathy and dermatological changes, and their initials stand for the acronym POEMS. Substantial kidney involvement is rarely related to this disease. Our report is about five patients suffering from the POEMS syndrome with kidney involvement that rapidly progressed to end-stage renal disease. Our report is about three females and two males with a mean age of 60...

INTRODUCTION: The clinical syndrome of uremia is a bedside diagnosis which mimics a wide spectrum of other clinical disorders, most commonly thyroid disease. End-stage renal disease (ESRD), as a disorder, frequently alters thyroid hormone metabolism, and this is not significantly normalized by dialysis. Although the thyroid and parathyroid glands are considered independent organs, their anatomical juxtaposition in the neck, as well as sharing a common embryological origin, might play a role in some of the possible association between thyroid and parathyroid disease...

The increased frequency of cardiovascular disease observed in hemodialysis patients is secondary to the combination of many traditional (age, male sex, hypertension, smoking, diabetes mellitus, and dyslipidemia) and novel and uremia-related (inflammation, uremic toxins, adipokine imbalance, coagulation disorders, protein-energy wasting, volume overload, endothelial dysfunction, hyperparathyroidism, and subclinical hypothyroidism) risk factors. Usually, in the latter group, oxidative stress is included. However, after decades of research, it remains essentially unknown if oxidative stress has a causative role in the development of cardiovascular disease in long-term hemodialysis patients because adequate longitudinal studies are lacking...

CONTEXT: Hypothyroidism is a common condition that disproportionately affects hemodialysis patients. In the general population, hypothyroidism is associated with higher mortality, particularly in populations with underlying cardiovascular risk. Despite their heightened cardiovascular mortality, the impact of hypothyroidism on the survival of hemodialysis patients remains uncertain. OBJECTIVE: To examine whether hypothyroidism is independently associated with higher mortality in hemodialysis patients...

Hypothyroidism occurs relatively common and is a significant cause of morbidity and mortality during the course of chronic kidney disease. Rhabdomyolysis is a potentially life-threatening condition characterised by necrosis of muscular tissue and rarely associates with hypothyroidism. Here we describe a case of rhabdomyolysis due to severe hypothyroidism in a 56-year-old female hemodialysis patient.

BACKGROUND: Although thyroid diseases exist in patients with renal failure, thyroid function tests are not routine tests in patients on chronic hemodialysis (HD). Therefore, the impact of thyroid diseases on erythropoietin (EPO) dosage in HD patients is not well defined. This study evaluated the relationship between the dose of EPO and the presence or absence of thyroid dysfunction in HD patients. METHODS: This study included 1013 adult patients on HD who did not have a malignancy, liver cirrhosis, thalassemia, iron deficiency, gastrointestinal bleeding, or a major operation within 6 months...

Hypothyroidism has been reported rarely as the cause of rhabdomyolysis in adults and children. We present here a non-compliant adolescent with a diagnosis of hypothyroidism who developed rhabdomyolysis and acute renal failure with no additional predisposing factor. A 13-year-old girl with a previous history of hypothyroidism due to thyroid hypoplasia presented with generalized myalgia, malaise, vomiting, and oliguria lasting for three days. Neurological examination revealed bilateral marked weakness and tenderness of muscles of both lower and upper extremities...

BACKGROUND: Non-autoimmune hypothyroidism has been reported in children with congenital nephrotic syndrome. The hypothyroid state was attributed to massive prolonged thyroid hormone loss. However, this endocrine abnormality has not been reported in steroid-resistant nephrotic syndrome (SRNS) despite similar long-standing proteinuria. METHOD: We describe all the patients with SRNS in our clinic's follow-up who developed non-autoimmune hypothyroidism. RESULTS: Five children aged 3-11 years at diagnosis of SRNS and followed for 5-42 months developed hypothyroidism (depressed free thyroxin and elevated thyrotropin levels) without evidence of autoimmune thyroiditis...
