A profound state of unconsciousness associated with depressed cerebral activity from which the individual cannot be aroused. Coma generally occurs when there is dysfunction or injury involving both cerebral hemispheres or the brain stem RETICULAR FORMATION.
A syndrome that results from abnormally low secretion of THYROID HORMONES from the THYROID GLAND, leading to a decrease in BASAL METABOLIC RATE. In its most severe form, there is accumulation of MUCOPOLYSACCHARIDES in the SKIN and EDEMA, known as MYXEDEMA.
Lower than normal body temperature, especially in warm-blooded animals.
A common form of hyperthyroidism with a diffuse hyperplastic GOITER. It is an autoimmune disorder that produces antibodies against the THYROID STIMULATING HORMONE RECEPTOR. These autoantibodies activate the TSH receptor, thereby stimulating the THYROID GLAND and hypersecretion of THYROID HORMONES. These autoantibodies can also affect the eyes (GRAVES OPHTHALMOPATHY) and the skin (Graves dermopathy).
The major hormone derived from the thyroid gland. Thyroxine is synthesized via the iodination of tyrosines (MONOIODOTYROSINE) and the coupling of iodotyrosines (DIIODOTYROSINE) in the THYROGLOBULIN. Thyroxine is released from thyroglobulin by proteolysis and secreted into the blood. Thyroxine is peripherally deiodinated to form TRIIODOTHYRONINE which exerts a broad spectrum of stimulatory effects on cell metabolism.
Conditions of abnormal THYROID HORMONES release in patients with apparently normal THYROID GLAND during severe systemic illness, physical TRAUMA, and psychiatric disturbances. It can be caused by the loss of endogenous hypothalamic input or by exogenous drug effects. The most common abnormality results in low T3 THYROID HORMONE with progressive decrease in THYROXINE; (T4) and TSH. Elevated T4 with normal T3 may be seen in diseases in which THYROXINE-BINDING GLOBULIN synthesis and release are increased.

Regulation of thyrotropin receptor protein expression in insect cells. (1/96)

Expression of large quantities of conformationally intact thyrotropin receptor (TSHR) is essential to understand the structure-function relationship of the receptor. We expressed three different constructs of full-length human TSHR in insect cells: (a) a TSHR cDNA lacking signal sequence (TSHR-ns), (b) a TSHR cDNA containing human TSHR signal sequence (TSHR-hs) and (c) a TSHR cDNA with baculovirus envelope protein encoded signal sequence gp-67 (TSHR-gp). No unique protein band, corresponding to any of these recombinant proteins, was visible upon Coomassie Blue staining after SDS-PAGE. However, Western blot using TSHR specific monoclonal antibody showed unique bands around 80, 100 and 100 kDa in TSHR-ns, TSHR-hs and TSHR-gp virus infected insect cells respectively. All three full-length TSHR proteins could neutralize the TSH binding inhibitory immunoglobulin (TBII) activity from sera of experimental animals. However, only glycosylated proteins (TSHR-hs and TSHR-gp) neutralized the TBII activity of sera from autoimmune thyroid patients, confirming the importance of glycosylation for patient autoantibody reactivity. Expression levels of full-length TSHR proteins were much lower than the levels of similarly produced corresponding ectodomains of TSHR proteins. Southern blot and Northern blot analyses showed that DNA and RNA levels in full-length TSHR virus infected insect cells were comparable to the levels found in cells infected with viruses encoding only the ectodomain of TSHR. These data suggest that full-length TSHR expression is very low and is regulated at the translational level.  (+info)

Aorto-coronary dissection during angioplasty in a patient with myxedema. (2/96)

A 67-year-old man with overt hypothyroidism and medically controlled hypertension was admitted for coronary angiography because of exertional angina. His triiodothyronine (T3) and thyroxine (T4) levels had been low for 4 years. Although signs and symptoms of hypothyroidism were apparent, his hypercholesterolemia was mild. Coronary angiography revealed an eccentric stenosis in the distal portion of the right coronary artery and it was decided to perform angioplasty because his angina had continued in spite of medication. The dissection appeared at the lesion site after the first nominal inflation, and a subsequent image disclosed a spiral dissection from the dilated site to the aortic sinus and peripheral coronary artery. Although emergency stenting could not prevent the extension near the origin of the brachiocephalic artery, the false lumen thrombosed and then diminished with conservative therapy. Aorto-coronary dissection is potentially life-threatening and has been recently reported as a complication during cardiac catheterization procedures. Chronic hypothyroid insufficiency may be one of the risk factors for this complication.  (+info)

Myxedema coma: diagnosis and treatment. (3/96)

Myxedema coma, the extreme manifestation of hypothyroidism, is an uncommon but potentially lethal condition. Patients with hypothyroidism may exhibit a number of physiologic alterations to compensate for the lack of thyroid hormone. If these homeostatic mechanisms are overwhelmed by factors such as infection, the patient may decompensate into myxedema coma. Patients with hypothyroidism typically have a history of fatigue, weight gain, constipation and cold intolerance. Physicians should include hypothyroidism in the differential diagnosis of every patient with hyponatremia. Patients with suspected myxedema coma should be admitted to an intensive care unit for vigorous pulmonary and cardiovascular support. Most authorities recommend treatment with intravenous levothyroxine (T4) as opposed to intravenous liothyronine (T3). Hydrocortisone should be administered until coexisting adrenal insufficiency is ruled out. Family physicians are in an important position to prevent myxedema coma by maintaining a high level of suspicion for hypothyroidism.  (+info)

Thyroxine treatment induces upregulation of renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system due to decreasing effective plasma volume in patients with primary myxoedema. (4/96)

BACKGROUND: In experimental animals and humans, hypothyroidism is associated with fluid retention and generalized oedema, increased antidiuretic hormone (ADH), decreased atrial natriuretic hormone (ANH), and decreased renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system (RAAS), which subsequently can be corrected by thyroid hormone replacement. The purpose of this study was to determine the effect of thyroxine therapy on RAAS and neurohormones affecting water and electrolyte metabolism and the reason for these changes in patients with primary myxoedema. METHODS: We measured changes in the plasma renin activity (PRA), serum aldosterone (Aldo), ADH, ANH levels, serum and 24 h urinary electrolytes and osmolalities, and cardiac function in 22 female patients with primary myxoedema before and after correction of hypothyroidism. We also evaluated age-, sex-, and BMI-matched 15 healthy control subjects (Cont). RESULTS: It took an average of 4.3 months (range, 3-9 months) to normalize thyroid function. The mean reductions of body weight and estimated plasma volume were 1.8+/-1.0 kg (P=0.002) and 8.5% (P<0.001), respectively. In addition, serum Na+ and osmolality and the haematocrit were significantly elevated after correction of hypothyroidism (P<0.01 and P<0.001, respectively). Increased F(E)Na and C(OSM) (P<0.05) levels in patients with hypothyroidism (Ho) compared with those in Cont did not change after thyroxine therapy (Eu). However, C(H(2)O), U(E)K, F(E)K, and TTKG levels as well as creatinine clearance (Ccr) were markedly increased in Eu compared with Ho and Cont (P<0.01, respectively). Increased plasma ADH concentration and decreased plasma ANH concentration were normalized compared to Cont after thyroxine therapy (P<0.001 and P<0.01, respectively). Low PRA and serum Aldo concentration in Ho were significantly increased in Eu (P<0.001 and P<0.01, respectively). In addition, increased left ventricular mass index and decreased cardiac output in Ho were normalized compared to Cont after thyroxine therapy (P<0.01, respectively) CONCLUSIONS: These findings suggest that the exaggerated upregulation of RAAS after correction of hypothyroidism in patients with primary myxoedema is associated with an increase in Ccr and a decrease in plasma volume resulting from water diuresis, natriuresis, osmotic diuresis and inappropriate changes in plasma ADH and ANH levels. The improved renal function coincided with an amelioration of cardiac function. These changes seem to be an adaptive response for preventing excessive plasma volume and weight loss after thyroxine therapy.  (+info)

Exophthalmus-myxoedema circumscriptum praetibiale-osteoarthropathia hypertrophicans (E.M.O.) syndrome in Graves' disease: a review of eight cases reported in Japan. (5/96)

Case 1 showed recurrence of hyperthyroidism accompanied by pretibial myxedema and digital clubbing 14 years after thyroidectomy for Graves' disease. Case 2 had had pretibial myxedema for the past 20 years and myxedema tuberosum at the right shoulder for the past 10 years, and on admission showed exophthalmos and digital clubbing with thyroid gland demonstrating histological picture of chronic thyroiditis. This case was in slight hypothyroidism and serum LATS was highly positive. Eight cases of E.M.O. syndrome have so far been reported in Japan, including our own. Six cases of these were males. Two cases did not show any sign of hyperthyroidism throughout their entire courses, including our Case 2 described here. Three cases had never received treatment for Graves' disease prior to the occurrence of this syndrome. The serum LATS was positive in all 5 cases thus far reported.  (+info)

Evidence for thyrotropin receptor immunoreactivity in pretibial connective tissue from patients with thyroid-associated dermopathy. (6/96)

Pretibial myxedema (PTM), mainly characterized by the accumulation of glycosaminoglycans in the dermis and subcutaneous tissue, is an extrathyroidal manifestation of autoimmune Graves' disease (GD), almost always associated with Graves' ophthalmopathy (GO). The thyrotropin receptor (TSH-R) has been proposed as the common target antigen in GD, GO and PTM, with evidence for receptor transcripts and/or protein in these locations. The aim of this study has been to investigate whether receptor protein is present in the pretibial tissues. Skin biopsies were obtained from two patients with PTM and two normal subjects without thyroid disease. A portion of each sample was fixed to produce semi-thin sections for Toluidine Blue or Periodic Acid Schiff (PAS) staining. The remainder was snap frozen to generate cryostat sections for immunohistochemical analysis using three monoclonal antibodies against TSH-R. In the skin from the two patients suffering from PTM, the dermis was infiltrated by inflammatory cells (lymphocytes, B cells, macrophages, mast cells) and adipocytes. The collagen fibers were dissociated by edema and by the accumulation of a PAS-positive material. Immunodetection of TSH-R produced positive staining on cells localized in the dermis, beneath the epidermis or close to the hypodermis. These cells were elongated and resembled fibroblasts. No immunoreactivity was observed in the dermis from control patients without thyroid disease. In conclusion, we have evidence for TSH-R immunoreactivity in the pretibium of patients with GD, GO and PTM. Further studies are needed to unambiguously identify the positive cells and determine whether the reactivity is due to the receptor itself or to a cross-reacting protein.  (+info)

Intravenous immunoglobulins control scleromyxoedema. (7/96)

BACKGROUND: Scleromyxoedema is a variant of papular mucinosis affecting the skin and internal organs. The different therapeutic approaches proposed for scleromyxoedema are still unsatisfactory. Intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIg) has been successfully employed in the treatment of connective tissue diseases and vasculitides. PATIENTS: The successful treatment of three cases of scleromyxoedema with IVIg is reported here. CONCLUSIONS: The relatively low risk of the drug and the high effectiveness seen in three patients suggest that IVIg is a new treatment potentially useful in scleromyxoedema.  (+info)

Myxedema accompanied by huge portal-systemic shunt without portal hypertension. (8/96)

A 43-year-old woman with a huge portal-systemic shunt accompanied by myxedema showed slow speech and behavior. Several imaging studies revealed a bold portal-systemic shunt from the splenic vein to the left renal vein. In addition, hypothyroidism caused by chronic thyroiditis was diagnosed, and synthesized thyroxine replacement was effective for the symptoms. However, the serum ammonia and indocyanin green retention remained in the abnormal range, nevertheless the portal vein pressure was normal and findings of liver cirrohsis were not recognized histologically. Surgical shunt closure was performed, resulting in normalized serum ammonia levels and serum branched chain amino acids /aromatic amino acids ratio, and improvement of the ammonia tolerance test.  (+info)

Myxedema coma is a state of decompensated hypothyroidism. A person may have lab values identical to a normal hypothyroid state, but a stressful event (such as an infection, myocardial infarction or stroke) precipitates the myxedema coma state, usually in the elderly. Primary symptoms of myxedema coma are altered mental status and low body temperature. Low blood sugar, low blood pressure, hyponatremia, hypercapnia, hypoxia, slowed heart rate, and hypoventilation may also occur. Myxedema, although included in the name, is not necessarily seen in myxedema coma.[citation needed] According to newer theories myxedema coma could result from allostatic overload in a situation were the effects of hypothyroidism are amplified by non-thyroidal illness syndrome.

We present a case of a hypothermic, unconscious patient transferred to our Intensive Care Unit with sepsis requiring mechanical ventilation. The absence of any known past medical history as well as concurrent obstructive uropathy and bacteremia made initial diagnosis challenging. He was eventually found to be in myxedema coma in light of evolving signs and laboratory investigations. This case emphasizes the need to consider myxedema coma in the differential diagnosis of profound hypothermia, especially when other clinical signs and symptoms may obscure its initial diagnosis, and lead clinicians to focus on the triggering event in isolation rather than concurrently managing hypothyroidism. This case highlights a challenging presentation of an uncommon, but life-threatening condition. We discuss the signs and symptoms present in the hypothyroid patient with myxedema coma; emphasize the pathophysiology of myxedema coma as well as the evidence-based acute management of this condition.
SUMMARY. This paper presents the first systematic study relating myxedema to coronary artery disease. It reviews the autopsy records of 38 white women with myxedema and a pathological diagnosis of chronic thyroiditis or thyroid atrophy and fibrosis. There was a statistically significant increase in coronary narrowing in myxedema patients when compared with age-, sex-, and race-specific controls. This increase was entirely related to the marked increase in severity of coronary narrowing in myxedema hypertensive patients when compared with hypertensive controls, despite similar ages, heart weights, and left ventricular thicknesses. Myxedema did not appear to predispose to coronary artery disease in the normotensive group. ...

9.1 HISTORICAL. The full-blown expression of hypothyroidism is known as myxedema. Adult myxedema escaped serious attention until Gull described it in 1874 1 . That it was a state resembling the familiar endemic cretinism, but coming on in adult life, was what chiefly impressed Gull. Ord 2 invented the term myxedema in 1873. The disorder arising from surgical removal of the thyroid gland (cachexia strumipriva) was described in 1882 by Reverdin 3 of Geneva and in 1883 by Kocher of Berne 4 . After Gulls description, myxedma aroused enormous interest, and in 1883 the Clinical Society of London appointed a committee to study the disease and report its findings 5 . The committees report, published in 1888, contains a significant portion of what is known today about the clinical and pathologic aspects of myxedema. It is referred to in the following discussion as the Report on Myxedema. The final conclusions of the 200-page volume are penetrating. They are as follows:. 1. That myxedema is a well-defined ...
MalaCards based summary : Myxedema is related to congenital hypothyroidism and graves disease. An important gene associated with Myxedema is TSHR (Thyroid Stimulating Hormone Receptor), and among its related pathways/superpathways are Allograft rejection and Aldosterone synthesis and secretion. The drugs Methimazole and rituximab have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include thyroid, heart and pituitary, and related phenotypes are hypothyroidism and muscle weakness ...
Myxedema is an endocrine disease that is associated with a situation where organs and tissues cannot be fully supplied with thyroid hormones. Myxedema is essentially an extreme form of hypothyroidism (acquired) in adults (in children, an extreme form of hypothyroidism (may be congenital) is called cretinism).
Recent investigations of myxedema have greatly increased our knowledge of the disease. Attention has been directed to newly recognized symptoms, to changes in the cholesterol and carbohydrate metabolism, and especially to the heart findings. The following case histories are presented because they illustrate these and other features of the disease. Since the cardiovascular changes in myxedema have been the object of so much discussion, they have been stressed in this article. A hypothesis to explain these changes on a pathological physiological basis is presented. ...

Myxedema coma is a rare condition in dogs characterized by an under-functioning thyroid gland (hypothyroidism). Affected dogs become cold, extremely weak, and mentally dull/depressed. Animals with myxedema have a drop in metabolism, in the oxygen production in their cells, and in calorie production. This diseased condition has a high mortality rate. Affected animals may progress from depressed, to comatose, to dead in relatively short order. Successful treatment is reliant upon early recognition of the disorder and prompt and appropriate medical treatment.. The name myxedema refers to the swelling above the eyes, and in the jowls that these patients display. This edema occurs because of an increase in dermal ground substances in their skin (the jelly like material in which collagen bundles are based in the skin).. Myxedema coma has been most commonly reported in Doberman pinschers.. ...
Answer: D. This presentation is consistent with myxedema coma, a hypothyroid emergency with a high mortality rate. This condition can arise in a poorly controlled longstanding hypothyroid patient or can be triggered by an acute event such as infection or surgery in a patient with a history of hypothyroidism. Thyroid hormone - T4 and T3 - should be given promptly for this diagnosis, in addition to continued supportive care (which may include intubation). Steroids will be given as well provided that coexisting adrenal insufficiency is still a possibility and sepsis will also be in your differential. Keep an eye out for myxedema coma in patients taking lithium or patients presenting with a pericardial effusion as well!.

Myxoedema madness was first described as a consequence of severe hypothyroidism in 1949. Most cases were secondary to long-standing untreated primary hypothyroidism. We present the first reported case of iatrogenic myxoedema madness following radioactive iodine ablation for Graves disease, with a second concurrent diagnosis of primary hyperaldosteronism. A 29-year-old woman presented with severe hypothyroidism, a 1-week history of psychotic behaviour and paranoid delusions 3 months after treatment with radioactive iodine ablation for Graves disease. Her psychiatric symptoms abated with levothyroxine replacement. She was concurrently found to be hypertensive and hypokalemic. Primary hyperaldosteronism from bilateral adrenal hyperplasia was diagnosed. This case report serves as a reminder that myxoedema madness can be a complication of acute hypothyroidism following radioactive iodine ablation of Graves disease and that primary hyperaldosteronism may be associated with autoimmune ...

The most common cause of low thyroid production is a condition called Hashimotos disease, similar to Graves disease in that its an autoimmune disorder. With Hashimotos disease, the bodys immune system mistakenly attacks the thyroid itself, damaging the glands cells and reducing the amount of hormone it can produce [source: NEMDIS].. With cases of hypothyroidism that are less severe, ovulation can occur normally, much like with hyperthyroidism. However, the condition has to be closely monitored and possibly treated if a woman becomes pregnant.. In addition, there is one type of hypothyroidism that is extremely dangerous both to women trying to get pregnant and those already carrying a child. Though rare, a condition known as myxedema coma can occur in women with hypothyroidism.. Myxedema coma is a potentially lethal condition where thyroid hormone levels drop an extreme amount. It is often accompanied by a drop in body temperature, low blood pressure, low blood sugar levels, a decrease in ...

Graves disease, the most common form of hyperthyroidism in iodine-replete countries, is associated with the presence of immunoglobulins G (IgGs) that are responsible for thyroid growth and hyperfunction. In this article, we report the unusual case of a patient with acromegaly and a severe form of Graves disease. Here, we address the issue concerning the role of growth hormone (GH) and insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF1) in influencing thyroid function. Severity of Graves disease is exacerbated by coexistent acromegaly and both activity indexes and symptoms and signs of Graves disease improve after the surgical remission of acromegaly. We also discuss by which signaling pathways GH and IGF1 may play an integrating role in regulating the function of the immune system in Graves disease and synergize the stimulatory activity of Graves IgGs. ...
The classification of autoimmune throid disease (AITD) includes Hashimotos thyroiditis (HT) or chronic autoimmune thyroiditis and its variants, Graves disease (GD) and autoimmune atrophic thyroiditis or primary myxedema. HT is characterized by the presence of goitre, thyroid autoantibodies against thyroid peroxidase (TPO) and thyroglobulin (Tg) in serum and varying degrees of thyroid dysfunction. During HT, self-reactive CD4+ T lymphocytes (Th) recruit B cells and CD8+ T cells (CTL) into the thyroid. Disease progression leads to the death of thyroid cells and hypothyroidism. Both autoantibodies and thyroid-specific cytotoxic T lymphocytes (CTLs) have been proposed to be responsible for autoimmune thyrocyte depletion. In GD, the TSH-R is the most important autoantigen. Antibodies directed against it mimic the effects of the hormone on thyroid cells, TSH, stimulating autonomous production of thyroxine and triiodothyronine and causing hyperthyroidism. The presence of TSH-R-blocking antibodies ...

Graves disease, also known as toxic diffuse goiter, is an autoimmune disease that affects the thyroid.[1] It frequently results in and is the most common cause of hyperthyroidism.[4] It also often results in an enlarged thyroid.[1] Signs and symptoms of hyperthyroidism may include irritability, muscle weakness, sleeping problems, a fast heartbeat, poor tolerance of heat, diarrhea and unintentional weight loss.[1] Other symptoms may include thickening of the skin on the shins, known as pretibial myxedema, and eye bulging, a condition caused by Graves ophthalmopathy.[1] About 25 to 80% of people with the condition develop eye problems.[1][3] The exact cause is unclear; however, it is believed to involve a combination of genetic and environmental factors.[2] A person is more likely to be affected if they have a family member with the disease.[1] If one twin is affected, a 30% chance exists that the other twin will also have the disease.[5] The onset of disease may be triggered by physical or ...

We report a fortuitous finding of concurrent HT and PTC from a resource-limited setting. The case is more perplexing as the HT seemed to stem from the PTC. It is a challenge to manage such a rare case from a remote district of Cameroon as the country has a poorly developed healthcare referral system and only 20 % of the population has access to referral centres [15].. Graves disease, though the most common cause of HT [1, 2, 16], is less likely the diagnosis since the goiter was not diffuse, the eyes were normal and there was no pretibial myxoedema. A hyperfunctioning thyroid nodule therefore took precedence as the probable aetiological diagnosis, with a toxic adenoma being the most likely aetiology. Since the patients TSH levels were low, the most appropriate next step would have been a thyroid scan (scintigraphy) to determine if the nodule is hot [1, 7, 17]. That notwithstanding, even if the HT were due to a hyperfunctioning (hot) nodule, it is very rare for such a nodule to have malignant ...

Liothyronine is the most potent form of thyroid hormone and it acts on the body to increase the basal metabolic rate and effect protein synthesis. Body builders use it to burn the excessive fat and to prepare for competitions. Citomed comes in boxes, each unit containing 60 pills (50 mcg/pill).. Bodybuilders prefer to use Citomed for its ability to burn off body excess fat. It is very often used for contest preparation and can considerably decrease the amount of stored fat without being forced to severely restrict calories diet Citomed has the capacity to increase the athletes metabolism. Since Citomed is the synthetic equivalent of the latter hormone, it causes the same processes in the body as if the thyroid ...

The thyroid gland, located in the front of the neck just below the larynx, secretes hormones that control metabolism. These are the T3 and T 4 as above.. The secretion of both hormones is controlled by the pituitary gland and the hypothalamus, which is part of the brain. Thyroid disorders may result not only from defects in the thyroid gland itself but also from abnormalities of the pituitary or hypothalamus.. Hypothyroidism or underactivity of the thyroid gland, may cause a variety of symptoms and may affect many body functions. The bodys normal rate of functioning is low. The symptoms may vary from mild to severe with the most severe form called myxedema, which is a medical emergency.. The most common cause of hypothyroidism is Hashimotos thryoiditis, a disease of the thyroid gland where the bodys immune system attacks the gland.. Failure of the pituitary gland to secrete a hormone to stimulate the thyroid gland (secondary hypothyroidism) is a less common cause.. Other causes include ...
Pretibial edema causes - What is prepattelar and pretibial edema? Was part of my MRI knee findings. What causes this? Common finding. It means there is some fluid in the tissues along the front of your knee. It can be caused be being on your knees a lot. Plumbers, carpet layers, house cleaners, etc. But I also see it not uncommonly as just an incidental finding and it doesnt necessarily mean much.
We report on 2 cases of hypothyroidism presenting clinical symptoms that occurred after radiotherapy for cancer of the head and neck and on the results of estimating thyroid function in patients with head and neck cancer who received radiotherapy.. The first patient underwent total laryngectomy for laryngeal cancer without sacrificing the thyroid gland and partial gastrectomy for gastric cancer. Radiotherapy of the neck was carried out postoperatively.. Two years later, the patient developed chest pain; pericardial effusion was detected, leading to a diagnosis of myxedema caused by hypothyroidism. The second patient received radiotherapy alone for laryngeal cancer. Two months later, low serum sodium concentration and anemia were detected in this patient.. The cause of these changes was subsequently found to be hypothyroidism. Based on our experience with these 2 cases, we measured thyroid function in 35 patients who had undergone neck radiation for head and neck cancer at our hospital over the ...
Advanced hypothyroidism to the clinical stage of myxedema is associated with hyponatremia involving both the nonosmotic release of AVP and diminished GFR (1,13-15). These events, which impair urinary dilution in advanced hypothyroidism, override the defect in urinary concentrating capacity, which also has been observed with hypothyroidism (1,2). In the present study, a model of moderate hypothyroidism was investigated in which neither hyponatremia nor a diminished GFR occurred, but a reversible decrease in maximal urine concentration was observed. With the use of molecular probes, it was possible to examine the perturbations in transporters and aquaporins that are involved in this hypothyroid-related defect in urinary concentration.. In the present study, the cardiac hemodynamics characteristic of hypothyroidism were demonstrated, including a decrease in cardiac output, heart rate, and left ventricular fraction of shortening as examined by echocardiography. Perturbations in these hemodynamic ...
Both men and women can have an underactive thyroid, although its more common in women. Children can also develop an underactive thyroid and some babies are born with it.. All babies born in the UK are screened for congenital hypothyroidism using a blood spot test when the baby is about 5 days old.. Treatment for an underactive thyroid involves taking daily hormone replacement tablets, called levothyroxine, to raise your thyroxine levels.. Youll initially have regular blood tests until the correct dose of levothyroxine is reached. This can take a little while to get right.. Once youre taking the correct dose, youll usually have a blood test once a year to monitor your hormone levels.. Youll usually need treatment for the rest of your life. However, with proper treatment, you should be able to lead a normal, healthy life.. If an underactive thyroid isnt treated, it can lead to complications, including heart disease, goitre, pregnancy problems and a life-threatening condition called myxoedema ...
Psychosis from a general medical condition. Endocrine diseases. Endocrine diseases are the prototype for systemic illnesses that affect the brain and lead to a wide variety of neuropsychiatric symptoms. Thyroid disease in the form of hyperthyroidism or hypothyroidism (myxedema madness) can be associated with psychosis.18-20 Steroid-producing tumors, located in either the adrenal gland (Cushing disease) or other tissues (eg, ectopic Cushing syndrome from small-cell lung cancer) need to be considered, particularly in cases of refractory psychosis.21,22 Insulinomas can present with an array of psychiatric symptoms, including confusion and bizarre behavior that can be falsely attributed to psychiatric illness.23 A pheochromocytoma is yet another rare hormone-producing tumor that characteristically produces episodic anxiety states but can present with psychosis.24. Metabolic diseases. Among the metabolic disorders, only acute intermittent porphyria (AIP) is sufficiently common to be routinely ...
You have hypothyroidism. This means your thyroid gland is not making enough thyroid hormone. This hormone is vital to body growth and metabolism. If you dont make enough, many body processes slow down. This can cause symptoms throughout the body. Hypothyroidism can range from mild to severe. The most severe form is called myxedema.. There are a number of causes of hypothyroidism. A common cause is Hashimotos disease. This disease causes the bodys own immune system to attack the thyroid gland. When you have certain treatments, such as surgery to remove the thyroid gland, this can also cause hypothyroidism.. Symptoms of hypothyroidism can include:. ...
Common symptoms of hypothyroidism arising after early childhood include lethargy, fatigue, cold-intolerance, weakness, hair loss and reproductive failure. If these signs are severe, the clinical condition is called myxedema. In the case of iodide deficiency, the thyroid becomes inordinantly large and is called a goiter. The most severe and devestating form of hypothyroidism is seen in young children with congenital thyroid deficiency. If that condition is not corrected by supplemental therapy soon after birth, the child will suffer from cretinism, a form of irreversible growth and mental retardation. Most cases of hypothyroidism are readily treated by oral administration of synthetic thyroid hormone. In times past, consumption of dessicated animal thyroid gland was used for the same purpose. Hyperthyroidism results from secretion of thyroid hormones. In most species, this condition is less common than hypothyroidism. In humans the most common form of hyperthyroidism is Graves disease, an immune ...
A thyroid function test measures the efficiency of thyroxine and triiodothyronine production by the thyroid gland. These two thyroid hormones which contain iodine, regulate body metabolism. If the hormones are deficient, as in the condition called myxedema, metabolism is slowed down. If they are in excess, as in exophthalmic Goiter, metabolism is accelerated. The oldest method of measuring thyroid function is the determination of the basal metabolic rate, or BMR. The relationship of the BMR to thyroid hormone levels, however, is indirect and inexact. The BMR test has thus been superseded by such test as the radiation method, which measures the rate at which injected radioactive iodine become concentrated in the thyroid gland. This rate is directly related to the rate of thyroid hormone synthesis. Other test include measurement of the competitive protein binding of thyroxine, serum thyroxine, the level of thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH), free thyroxine in blood and urine, and triiodothyronine ...

Subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) is a devastating cause of stroke, occurring in relatively young people. It has been suggested that some immune-mediated diseases may be associated with an increased risk of SAH. We analysed a database of linked statistical records of hospital admissions and death certificates for the whole of England (1999-2011). Rate ratios for SAH were determined, comparing immune-mediated disease cohorts with comparison cohorts. There were significantly elevated risks of SAH after hospital admission for the following individual immune-mediated diseases: Addisons disease, ankylosing spondylitis, autoimmune haemolytic anaemia, Crohns disease, diabetes mellitus, idiopathic thrombocytopenia purpura, myxoedema, pernicious anaemia, primary biliary cirrhosis, psoriasis, rheumatoid arthritis, scleroderma, Sjogrens syndrome, SLE and thyrotoxicosis. Elevated risks that were greater than 2-fold were found for Addisons disease (rate ratio (RR) = 2.01, 95% confidence interval 1.3-2.97),
Syndrome of inappropriate ADH secretion is a situation where the ADH hypersecretion is... inapropriate... in contrast to all the other situations where it might be elevated appropriately. Now, one must acknowledge that a raised ADH level is a perfectly reasonable response to hypovolemia, but it is difficult to use the word appropriate to describe ADH elevation in states of apparent volume depletion such as cirrhosis, congestive cardiac failure or myxoedema. The name syndrome of inconvenient ADH secretion might have been better, and we can still keep the acronym.

Hypothyroidism may cause several cardiac manifestations including conduction abnormalities, pericardial effusion, decreased myocardial contractility and accelerated coronary atherosclerosis. Although cardiac output is reduced in hypothyroidism, frank heart failure (HF) is relatively rare because of the low peripheral oxygen demand. Several mechanisms have been postulated in hypothyroid-induced HF, including genomic as well as non-genomic actions of thyroid hormone. Dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) of other aetiologies is usually progressive, and is associated with significant morbidity and mortality. We report a case of DCM associated with severe hypothyroidism with marked improvement on restoration of euthyroid state. Our case is unique in that the patient had no known risk factors for cardiac disease and experienced marked improvement despite being on minimal doses of HF medications, illustrating the relationship between hypothyroidism and development of left ventricular dysfunction, and its ...
