BACKGROUND: Heart type fatty acid binding protein (H-FABP) is a small protein and released into the circulation when myocardial damage has occurred. Previous studies have demonstrated that H-FABP is closely associated with cardiac and some endocrinologic disorders including prediabetes, metabolic syndrome, and acromegaly. Hyperthyroism is a well-known disorder associated with cardiovascular diseases. We aimed to investigate the effect of hyperthyrodism on H-FABP levels. METHODS: Forty six patients with hyperthyroidism with no known history of coronary artery disease and 40 healthy controls are involved in the study...

Due to stimulated overall metabolism, a state of nutritional inadequacy often ensues, during thyrotoxicosis. We aimed to investigate circulating levels of some major components of the system that regulates energy stores, glucose, and fat metabolism, during thyrotoxicosis compared to euthyroidism. Fasting serum ghrelin, leptin, adiponectin, insulin, glucagon, glucose, as well as body fat composition were analyzed during thyrotoxicosis in 40 hyperthyroid patients (50.5 ± 15.2 years old, 22 females, 31 with Graves disease, and 9 with toxic nodular goiter)...

The co-existence of a hydatidiform mole with a living fetus is a rare phenomenon. The condition is a dilemma with respect to the diagnosis and management of associated maternal (a risk of maternal complications, such as preeclampsia, hyperthyrodism, and a risk of malignancy) and fetal (elevated risk of spontaneous abortion, neonatal thyrotoxicosis) complications. A 27-year-old woman was referred to our hospital with a diagnosis of hydatidiform mole and live fetus. The pregnancy was unremarkable except for the complaints of excessive nausea and vomiting...

The findings in hyperthyroid patients with Graves' orbitopathy (GO) of antibodies against antigens shared between the thyroid and orbit, such as the TSH-receptor (TRAb) and a novel protein G2s (G2sAb), suggested a possible common therapeutic strategy. However, the gold therapeutic standard for hyperthyrodism in these patients remains still unsettled and is mainly based on personal experience. Studies on the effect of total thyroidectomy (TT) alone or followed by radioiodine ablation (RAI) of thyroid remnants showed often conflicting results...

AIM: Increased carotid intima media thickness (CIMT) is recognized as the early indicator of atherosclerosis. We aimed to evaluate the effect of impaired fasting glucose (IFG) and impaired glucose tolerance (IGT) on the CIMT. METHODS: We evaluated 51 dysglycemic patients (IFG [N.=22]; IGT [N.=29]) and 25 controls who have similar age and gender. Patients who were known to have coronary heart disease, cerebrovascular disease, hypertension, hyperlipidemia, diabetes mellitus and hypo-hyperthyrodism were excluded...

Subclinical thyroid dysfunction is a frequent disorder characterized by abnormal levels of thryotropin (TSH) and normal thyoid hormones. Subclinical hypothyroidism can be associated with unspecific symptoms and dyslipidemia, a substitution is generally recommended if the TSH is > 10 microU/l. With lower TSH-levels, the indication for substitution is individual, depending on other risk factors or diseases like dyslipidemia, smoking, goiter, pregnancy or clinical symptoms. Subclinical hyperthyrodism is a risk factor for atrial fibrillation and reduced bone mass densitiy...

The radioiodine therapy can favour and induces of autommunological reaction in thyroid gland. The aim of the study was evaluation of antithyroid autoantibodies in patients with multinodular large toxic goiter treated with repeated doses of 131I before and after therapy. Studies were conducted in 24 women (age range: 65-84 yrs) with multinodular large toxic goiters--goiter volume assessed by USG over 100 ml. Serum TSH, fT4, antithyroid antibodies (anti-TPO, anti-Tg, TSHR-Ab) levels were estimated in all patients parallel with radioiodine uptake test (after 5 and 24 hours), 131I thyroid scintigraphy and fine needle biopsy...

Subclinical thyreopathies are pathological states of the thyroid gland that show no corresponding clinical symptoms, yet may be detected sporadically by laboratory examination or screening methods. They represent a novel diagnostic entity (analogous to glucose tolerance impairment--IGT or impaired fasting glycemia--IFG), which appeared due to innovations in laboratory diagnostics (sensitive TSH detection methods) and recent focus on pre-clinical stages of manifestative diseases. From a wider point of view, subclinical thyreopathies include subclinical hypothyroidism, subclinical hyperthyrodism, thyroid volume or structure changes found accidentally by sonography, initial stages of malignancy--accidental detection of a microcarcinoma and subclinical forms of thyroiditis...

Subclinical hyperthyroidism is a state of increased thyroid function with few or no clinical definitive signs or symptoms of hyperthyroidism. It is characterised by a decrease of serum (TSH) concentration below 0.1 mU/L, when serum levels of total and free thyroxin and triiodothyronin concentration are within normal reference ranges. It is not a rare finding and rates between 0.02% and 11.3% have been reported in different groups. The clinical diagnosis of subclinical hyperthyroidism is very difficult in the absence of the typical symptoms of hyperthyroidism...

A brief description of human iodine metabolism is given. The results of 4 hours, 24 hours and 48 hours thyroid I-131 uptake and 48 hours PBI-131 measurements in 88 (28 males, 60 females) euthyroid volunteers are presented (Table I, fig. 2 and 3). The uptake in Icelandic euthyroids is ca. 50% lower than in euthyroids in Great Britain and U.S.A. (Table II). A 4 hours uptake > 21% of dose is the best criterion for hyperthyrodism, but a 48 hours uptake < 5% the best criterion for hypothyroidism. 48 hr PBI-131 is of no aid in diagnosis of hypothyroidism, but of some value in the diagnosis of hyperthyroidism (> 0...

OBJECTIVES: The effects of triiodothyronine (T(3)) and hypoxia on 2,3-bisphosphoglycerate (2,3-BPG) studied in vitro are unclear. To clarify these effects we selected a more physiologic approach: the in vivo study in rabbits. We also present the changes produced by T(3) and hypoxia on phosphoglycerate mutase (PGAM), which requires 2,3-BPG as a cofactor, and 2,3-BPG synthase (BPGS), the enzyme responsible for 2,3-BPG synthesis in erythroblasts and reticulocytes. METHODS: Hyperthyroidism was induced by daily T(3) injection (250 microg/kg), hypoxia by a mixture of 90% nitrogen and 10% oxygen and hypothyroidism by propylthiouracil (PTU) added to drinking water...
