TY - JOUR. T1 - Thyroid Disease in Pregnancy. AU - Neale, Donna M. AU - Cootauco, Alice Chung. AU - Burrow, Gerard. PY - 2007/12. Y1 - 2007/12. N2 - Twenty-seven million Americans are affected with thyroid disease, yet over half of this population remains undiagnosed. Thyroid disease often manifests itself during the reproductive period of a womans life and is the second most common endocrinopathy that affects women of childbearing age. The physiologic changes of pregnancy can mimic thyroid disease or cause a true remission or exacerbation of underlying disease. In addition, thyroid hormones are key players in fetal brain development. Maternal, fetal and neonatal thyroid are discussed here. Moreover, this article serves as a review of the more common thyroid diseases that are encountered during pregnancy and the postnatal period, their treatments, and their potential effects on pregnancy..

OBJECTIVES Associations between autoimmune thyroid disease and antigens of the major histocompatibility complex (MHC) have long been recognized. Graves disease (GD) is associated with the histocompatibility leucocyte antigen (HLA) haplotype A*01-B*0801-DRB1*0301-DQA1*0501-DQB1*0201 (or B8/DR3) whereas autoimmune hypothyroidism (AIH) has been weakly associated with HLA DRB1*03, *04 and *11/*12 alleles (or DR3, DR4 and DR5). However, the presence of important immunoregulatory genes within the HLA Class II and III regions raises the possibility that these genes harbour the primary susceptibility locus. This study examines genetic variation across the MHC in UK Caucasoid subjects with autoimmune thyroid disease.. PATIENTS AND METHODS DNA extracted from venous blood samples from 215 patients with autoimmune thyroid disease (GD 135, AIH 77) and 267 control subjects was analysed. Genotyping was performed using polymerase chain reaction and sequence specific primers for HLA Class I and II alleles and ...
Background Sjogrens syndrome (SS) is a chronic autoimmune epithelitis characterized by disruption of epithelial cells, ensuing lymphoplasmocytic infiltration of exocrine glands, and subsequent dryness of the mouth and eyes. Individuals with SS are more likely to have the thyroid disease. However, this association remains controversial. This meta-analysis aimed to evaluate the risk of thyroid disease in patients with SS. Methods We performed this systematic review by searching both English and Chinese literature databases. Random- or fixed-effects models were used to summarize the association between thyroid disease and SS. The results were subjected to meta-analysis with odds ratios (ORs) and corresponding 95% confidence intervals (CIs). Results The eight articles in this meta-analysis included 988 SS cases and 2,884 controls. Overall, the risk of thyroid disease in patients with SS was significantly increased compared with controls (OR, 3.29; 95% CI [2.08-5.21]). The risk of autoimmune thyroid disease

It is common for people to develop thyroid diseases, such as hyperthyroidism and hypothyroidism. The two main types of autoimmune thyroid disease are Graves disease and Hashimotos thyroiditis.
CANINE AUTOIMMUNE THYROID DISEASE: COMMON PROBLEM OF PUREBRED DOGS. "Most of the confusion about the diagnosis and treatment of thyroid disease in purebred or mixed breed dogs today stems from the expectation that affected animals must show clinical signs of inadequate thyroid hormonal production (i.e. hypothyroidism) in order to have the disease….The most common cause of canine thyroid disease is autoimmune thyroiditis (estimated 90% of cases).. ...
Evidence increasingly suggests that smoking has an effect on autoimmune thyroid disease. In particular, smoking has been shown to worsen Graves disease and Graves ophthalmopathy [1]. The exact role of smoking on the autoimmune mechanism is unclear, but smoking is known to have an antithyroid effect [2, 3]. We investigated antithyroid peroxidase antibodies (TPO-Ab) and antithyroglobulin antibodies (Tg-Ab) in a large cohort of healthy pregnant women before 16 weeks of gestation (n = 349). Levels of TPO-Ab were significantly increased (P , 0.001) in the 32 women who smoked more than 10 cigarettes per day before gestation compared with the 73 women who smoked fewer than 10 cigarettes per day (718 ± 659 U/mL and 101 ± 34 U/mL, respectively) or the 244 women who were nonsmokers (99 ± 22 U/mL). Levels of Tg-Ab were significantly increased (P = 0.009) in pregnant women who smoked more than 10 cigarettes per day compared with those who smoked fewer than 10 cigarettes per day (125 ± 105 U/mL and 37 ± ...
Background: Several screening studies have indicated an increased prevalence of celiac disease (CD) among individuals with autoimmune thyroid disease (ATD), but estimates have varied substantially. Objective: The aim of this study was to examine the prevalence of CD in patients with ATD. Method: A systematic review was conducted of articles published in PubMed Medline or EMBASE until September 2015. Non-English papers with English-language abstracts were also included, as were research abstracts without full text available when relevant data were included in the abstract. Search terms included "celiac disease combined with "hypothyroidism or "hyperthyroidism or "thyroid disease. Fixed-effects inverse variance-weighted models were used. Meta-regression was used to examine heterogeneity in subgroups. Results: A pooled analysis, based on 6024 ATD patients, found a prevalence of biopsy-confirmed CD of 1.6% [ confidence interval (CI) 1.3-1.9%]. Heterogeneity was large (I-2 = 70.7%). The ...
Do you have trouble maintaining a healthy weight? If you are you one of the millions of Americans dealing with thyroid disease, the answer is probably yes. As someone suffering from thyroid disease, especially hypothyroidism, maintaining a healthy weight can be especially challenging, and the foods you should consume and the foods you should avoid are not necessarily going to be the same as for those without the condition. As more and more experts are discovering, what constitutes a healthy diet may vary from person to person, and learning which foods will help you and which foods will agitate your condition is the first step to overcoming symptoms. For example, if you have hypothyroidism, lightly steaming kale or adding it to soups or stews may be a better choice than adding it raw to your morning smoothie. Learning the best ways to manage your diet can make it easier to manage your thyroid disease, and understanding what works for and what works against your thyroid is the best way to feel in ...

Sixty to seventy percent of IFN-γ−/− NOD.H-2h4 mice given sodium iodide (NaI)-supplemented water develop a slow onset autoimmune thyroid disease, characterized by thyrocyte epithelial cell (TEC) hyperplasia and proliferation (H/P). TEC H/P develops much earlier in CD28−/− mice and nearly 100% (both sexes) have severe TEC H/P at 4 mo of age. Without NaI supplementation, 50% of 5- to 6-mo-old CD28−/−IFN-γ−/− mice develop severe TEC H/P, and 2-3 wk of NaI is sufficient for optimal development of severe TEC H/P. Mice with severe TEC H/P are hypothyroid, and normalization of serum thyroxine levels does not reduce TEC H/P. Activated CD4+ T cells are sufficient to transfer TEC H/P to SCID recipients. Thyroids of mice with TEC H/P have infiltrating T cells and expanded numbers of proliferating thyrocytes that highly express CD40. CD40 facilitates, but is not required for, development of severe TEC H/P, as CD40−/−IFN-γ−/−CD28−/− mice develop severe TEC H/P. Accelerated ...
Background: Infectious agents have been suspected as a triggering factor for development of autoimmune thyroid disease (ATD). Some reports from Western countries have suggested association between Helicobacter pylori (HP) infection and ATD. Objective: To investigate the association of ATD with Cag A seropositivity in a population with high rate and early age of onset of HP infection. Methods: IgG anti HP and anti Cag A antibodies were measured in 88 patients with ATD and compared with results of 112 healthy individuals. Results: The rate of infection with HP was not significantly different in patient and control groups, but there was significant association between ATD and infection with Cag A strains (p|0.005). This association was significant for both hypothyroidism (p|0.005) and Graves disease (p|0.02). Cag A antibody level correlated with titers of thyroid auto antibodies (p|0.001). Conclusion: In a population with high rate and early age of onset of HP infection, only infection with Cag A positive

Are you taking thyroid medications and wish there was a safe alternative? Do you have all the symptoms of thyroid disease, but you are continually told it is normal? Often small variations in thyroid levels that are within the medically normal range can create severe symptoms.. Many physicians only test the TSH, however to accurately diagnose thyroid disease it is necessary to order the appropriate tests and to interpret them correctly.. It is important to run T3 uptake, T4, T7 and at times other tests like Reverse T3, thyroid immunoglobins, and TSH. Other tests that may help influence the thyroid include heavy metal analysis, iodine levels, and lifestyle evaluations.. ...

In the past decade, there has been increasing recognition of thyroid diseases as a common health problem. While there have been few major new advances in treatment, there is much greater understanding of why thyroid disorders occur and the long-term health effects of thyroid disease.
Dr. Kevin Passero and his special guest Mary Shomon will be discussing the book, Beautiful Inside and Out: Conquering Thyroid Disease with a Healthy, Happy, Thyroid Sexy Life. Mary Shomon is a patient advocate and author who transformed her 1995 thyroid diagnosis into a mission to educate and empower others struggling with thyroid and hormonal conditions. Her latest book, co-authored with former Baywatch star Gena Lee Nolin, starts out with Genas story including her time in Hollywood, struggling with symptoms that were eventually diagnosed as thyroid disease. Beautiful Inside and Out includes chapters to help other women understand what the thyroid does, recognize the possible signs of a thyroid problem, find and deal with the right doctors, have the appropriate tests, get properly diagnosed, and choose the most effective treatments.
Neuropathy symptoms include those having to do with nerve functions throughout the body. Common neurological symptoms include headaches, numbness or tingling in the hands and/or feet (peripheral neuropathy), abnormal reflexes and muscle weakness and spasms. Thyroid disease is an endocrine gland disorder (hormone related) and all disorders in this category, including diabetes have potential to cause neurological symptoms. In the case of thyroid disease, the hormones produced by this endocrine gland regulate the metabolism in every cell of the body, including those related to nerve function. When a disorder affecting thyroid hormone balance develops or they thyroid gland is surgically removed, the function of the nervous system can be sped-up or slowed down, resulting in nerve-related symptoms ...

Th1 cells promote autoimmune inflammatory reactions and Th2 cells enhance the production of autoantibodies, although teleologically the prime purpose of these subsets is in the defence mechanisms against microbial and protozoal infections, respectively. It would therefore make sense if Th1 cells predominated in Hashimotos thyroiditis (HT) and Th2 cells predominated in Graves disease (GD). However, such a neat dichotomy would not explain the huge levels of thyroid autoantibodies in HT compared to the distinctive TSH receptor stimulating antibodies in GD. We also know that the thyroid is a major site of autoantibody synthesis in AITD and, yet, the analysis of intrathyroidal cell populations has not shown any clear Th1 or Th2 predominance in either disease (see Ajjan & Weetman, in Autoimmunity 2003). This may be because the notion of Th1 and Th2 is too simplistic for application to human pathological processes, which are chronic and complex. It is not always appreciated that even the exact ...
TY - GEN. T1 - Thyroid dysfunction in women with systemic sclerosis. AU - Marasini, Bianca. AU - Ferrari, Pier Alda. AU - Solaro, Nadia. AU - Selmi, Carlo. PY - 2007/6. Y1 - 2007/6. N2 - Hypothyroidism has been frequently reported in systemic sclerosis (SSc), but whether SSc itself increases the risk of thyroid dysfunction is still controversial. The aim of the present study was to determine whether routine thyroid function screening in SSc should be warranted. Serum levels of free triiodothyronine, free thyroxine, and thyroid-stimulating hormone, and the presence of thyroid-specific autoantibodies (antithyroid peroxidase and antithyreoglobulin) were measured in 79 women with SSc and 81 age-matched women with osteoarthritis (OA) serving as controls. Hyperthyroidismwas found in 2 of 79 (2.5%) SSc and in 4 of 81 (5%) OA cases. Hypothyroidism was found in 16 of 79 (20%) patients with SSc (subclinical in 14/16 cases) and in 9 of 81 (11%) patients with OA (subclinical in all cases; P = 0.131). ...

The association of systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) and thyroid autoimmunity has been reported by several studies in a wide range of variability. However, from a review of the literature, discrepant results have been reported. The aim of the study was to evaluate the prevalence of clinical and subclinical thyroid disorders in patients with SLE vs sex- and age-matched controls. Thyroid hormones and the presence of antithyroid antibodies were tested and thyroid ultrasonography was performed in 213 patients with SLE vs 426 sex- and age-matched controls, from the same geographic area, with a well-defined status of iodine intake. The odds ratio for subclinical hypothyroidism for female patients with SLE with respect to controls was 4.5 (95% confidence interval [CI], 2.5-8.4); for antithyroid peroxidase antibody (AbTPO) positivity, it was 2.6 (95% CI, 1.7-4.1); and for thyroid autoimmunity, it was 2.9 (95% CI, 2.0-4.4). The mean values of thyroid-stimulating hormone and AbTPO were higher in female ...
Google "thyroid disease" and youll find well over five million references.. And thats precisely the problem, says thyroid expert Sara Rosenthal.. While the Internet has helped to correct what was previously a lack of information about the bodys butterfly gland, it has now created another problem: Too much misinformation.. "If you are a newly diagnosed thyroid disease patient and dont know anything about thyroid disease, you will come away from the Internet with some facts that are true but a lot of facts that are not true," Rosenthal told me recently.. The former thyroid cancer patient who heads up the program for bioethics at the University of Kentucky, wrote The Thyroid Sourcebook, a go-to-guide for credible, easy-to-understand information on living with thyroid disease.. The thyroid, located near the Adams apple at the base of the throat in front of the windpipe, is important because it affects and regulates virtually every bodily activity, she says..

Its very important to start treating a thyroid disorder at its earliest signs. The disregarded disease can lead to skin problems, fragility of hair, changes in cognitive functions (memory loss, irritability, etc.), changes in twilight vision, snoring, adenoma of the pituitary gland, anemia, secretions from the mammary glands, abundant menstruation.. Of course, a good experienced doctor can make the correct diagnosis and assign a therapy. But, at the same time, traditional medicine recognizes that it is not able to completely cure thyroid diseases, especially at later stages, and completely restore its functions. The treatment is mainly aimed at stopping the disease development and maintaining a stable hormonal background.. Thus it is very important to be aware of the first possible symptoms of thyroid gland diseases to be able to notice its earliest symptoms, and to know the most modern strategies in this area.. To help you with this, weve prepared an overview of information sources on thyroid ...
When I asked for a thyroid test, long before I knew anything about this, my TSH came out about 3, and I was told I didnt have a problem. This was when I felt at my worst in terms of thyroid symptoms, my body temperature was consistently about 2 degrees below the norm, I had all the classic symptoms. I probably had sky-high antibody levels too, but they didnt bother to test them. TSH isnt by itself a reliable test, a good doctor should take into account fT4 and antibody levels according to my Endo, was very angry that most GPs make diagnoses solely on the basis of TSH results. I also had high cholesterol and bad HDL/LDL ratio, I was only 30 at the time. So, ask for thyroid antibody tests, get your cholesterol measured, and if you do have autoimmune thyroid disease and elevated cholesterol, try to make a case for trying thyroxine in terms of lowering your lipids, theres plenty of evidence now that this is the best way to lower lipids in people who have subclinical thyroid disease ...
More tired than usual? Losing hair? Feeling low? Irritable? Shedding pounds when youre not even trying? Or dieting like crazy and the scale wont budge? These are all symptoms of thyroid disease.. The thyroid, which is in the front of the neck above the collarbone, is a critical organ. When its working right it provides energy to nearly every part of the body. It gets its marching orders from the pituitary gland, which sits in the base of the brain. The pituitary signals the thyroid to get to work by releasing a thyroid stimulating hormone known as TSH.. When it receives the signal, the thyroid produces two primary hormones - T4 (Thyroxine) and T3 (Triiodothyronine). Under normal circumstances, these thyroid hormones circulate in the bloodstream and help regulate a host of important functions - breathing, heart rate, body temperature, menstrual cycles and more.. If the pituitary gland senses that more thyroid hormone is needed, it sends a stronger signal in the form of more TSH. If it senses ...

Even moderate thyroid dysfunction during early pregnancy significantly increases the risk of serious complications, underscoring the need for universal screening in the first trimester, a new study finds. The results will be presented Saturday at The Endocrine Societys 94th Annual Meeting in Houston.. "These findings add to the now increasing evidence from previous studies that all pregnant women, irrespective of their risk for thyroid problems, probably should be screened for thyroid dysfunction within the first three months of getting pregnant," said study lead author Jubbin Jagan Jacob, M.D., associate professor at Christian Medical College and Hospital, Ludhiana in Punjab, India.. Thyroid hormone is produced by the thyroid gland, which is located in the neck, and helps regulate the process of turning food into energy. Excessively low hormone production, or hypothyroidism, may cause symptoms like fatigue, sensitivity to cold temperatures, constipation, and depression.. During pregnancy ...
Thyroid disease in pregnancy can, if uncorrected, cause adverse effects on fetal and maternal well-being. The deleterious effects of thyroid dysfunction can also extend beyond pregnancy and delivery to affect neurointellectual development in the early life of the child. Demand for thyroid hormones is increased during pregnancy which may cause a previously unnoticed thyroid disorder to worsen. The most effective way of screening for thyroid dysfunction is not known.[1] A review found that more women were diagnosed with thyroid dysfunction when all pregnant women were tested instead of just testing those at high-risk of thyroid problems (those with family history, signs or symptoms).[1] Finding more women with thyroid dysfunction meant that the women could have treatment and management through their pregnancies. However the outcomes of the pregnancies were surprisingly similar so more research is needed to look at the effects of screening all women for thyroid problems.[1] ...

I have a thyroid disorder and I will need to take thyroid medication every day for the rest of my life. I think its rather odd to be prescribed thyroid medication for depression if your T3, T3 and TSH are normal -- that mightve been the time to get a second opinion. But, I am not a doctor so I cant tell you if this thyroid medicine will permanently mess up your thyroid. What I can say is, thyroid medicine is very cheap, even without health insurance, and if youre taking thyroid hormone replacement to speed up your thyroid, very safe. So totally I understand your concern and wanting to get to the bottom of this and I think you should continue, but if it does turn out to be permanent, just know tons of people deal with it and its not a big deal on the hierarchy of medical disorders to deal with.

If you feel tired or cant loose weight in spite of diet and exercise you may be suffering from a thyroid condition.. Twenty percent of Americans suffer from thyroid disease, it is estimated that 60% are unaware of the condition. Autoimmune thyroid disease is 6 times more frequent in women than in men, being Hashimoto disease the most common form. The causes of thyroid problems are largely unknown in Western medicine.. In Japan the thyroid gland is considered the shock absorber of the body, in Chinese medicine hypothyroidism is the result of a long term debilitation of the 5 viscera due to overwork, stress, poor diet, too many pregnancies and sometimes constitutional and hereditary factors.. The adrenal glands play an important role in the manifestation of thyroid disease; people that experience insufficiency of the thyroid gland may have suffered trauma or an emotional shock that lead to adrenal exhaustion followed by an imbalance of the thyroid gland.

For the last couple of years, Ive heard a lot about thyroid disease from family and friends. A friends who cant loose 20 lbs. despite dieting on an accredited program; husband was recently treated; a teenager with thyroid cancer and many more…… it makes me wonder. I am posting 2 articles on this page, so please read both. The first article is from a medical Doctor who is a board certified Internist who also integrates holistic medicine into this practice. He believes the thyroid also controls our autoimmunity to a degree and could be the root cause of a number of diseases. While he doesnt mention IBD, its worth reading. Its important to watch the video as it explains how blood tests are often inconclusive. You need to dig deeper. The second article talks about the implications of soy in our diet and its effect on the thyroid. Soy is a problem for most IBDers. We cannot digest it. Interesting reading….from 2 PhDs and 1 board certified Internist. ...
BACKGROUND: Populations that practice a subsistence lifestyle are at higher risk of ingesting endocrine disrupting substances, such as organochlorine pesticides, PCBs, dioxins, and synthetic and plant-derived estrogens. Because the Quileute Tribe is a population that has traditionally been dependent on hunting and fishing for sustenance and because the tribe is relatively isolated, tribal members may be at risk for development of thyroid disorders at a higher rate than other populations due to the ingestion of exogenous endocrine disruptors. OBJECTIVE: To discover whether there is a higher than average prevalence of thyroid disorder in the Quileute tribe of La Push, Washington. STUDY DESIGN: A confidential chart review was conducted on the Quileute Reservation July 24-28, 2006. Adults (18 or older) receiving health care at the Quileute Health Clinic who were members of the Quileute Tribe and who visited the clinic between 7-2001 and 7-2006 were eligible/or inclusion in this study.

The aim of the study was to assess some physical changes of the skin in the presence of moderate thyroid dysfunction. SETTING: University Hospital. PATIENTS AND METHODS: A total of 119 adults suffering from hypothyroidism or hyperthyroidism and 60 healthy controls were enrolled in this study. Hormonal dosages (TSH, fT3, fT4) were assessed in the serum. A series of biometrological assessments were also performed on the volar and dorsal aspects of the forearms. These included electrometric assessments (Nova Dermal Phase Meter, Corneometer), evaporimetry (Tewameter)), colorimetry (Mexameter), ultrasound shear wave propagation (Reviscometer) and squamometry X. Correlations were searched between each of the serum hormonal dosages and each of the biometrological parameters. RESULTS: The hormonal changes in the untreated patients with thyroid dysfunction were modest in ...

How did I apply this to the real world? Now, I take phone calls outside, bare feet in the grass. Its great to be outside, in the sun, breathing fresh air as I work instead of trapped inside. Were on our phones so much that "earthing" really gives me an opportunity to take a breath and it keeps me energized and clear headed. I find that when I sit at my desk too long, I zone out, get tired and it depresses my mood.. As I live near the beach as well, I find myself dipping my toes in the sand all the time, but I especially feel the shift when I was along the shore where the ocean meets the sea. Where can you find opportunities to get your "earth" on? Id love to hear your ideas in the comments!.

by Werner Vosloo , Aug 16, 2011 , Auto-Immune, New, Thyroid Health. BACKGROUND: Hashimotos thyroiditis (HT) is a common disease, and is the most prevalent cause of hypothyroidism. Symptoms and diseases associated with HT are considered to be caused by hypothyroidism. We hypothesized that higher antithyroperoxidase (anti-TPO) antibody levels would be associated with an increased symptom load and a decreased quality of life in a female euthyroid patient collective.. METHODS: In a prospective cohort study 426 consecutive euthyroid female patients undergoing thyroid surgery for benign thyroid disease were included. Main outcome measures were preoperative anti-TPO levels, a symptom questionnaire and the SF-36 questionnaire, and lymphocytic infiltration of the thyroid tissue as evaluated by histology.. RESULTS: Histology revealed HT in 28/426 (6.6%) subjects. To maximize the sum of the predictive values, a cut-off point for anti-TPO of 121.0 IU/mL was calculated (sensitivity 93.3% [95% ...

More amazing revelations from the New Scientist magazine. IN 1953 a physician named Louis Sokoloff laid a 20-year-old college student onto a gurney, attached electrodes to his scalp and inserted a syringe into his jugular vein. For 60 minutes the volunteer lay there and solved arithmetic problems. All the while, Sokoloff monitored his brainwaves and…
This is addressing Paul and his ridiculous comment. While you want to call us foolish for seeking the best possible treatment, you are showing your COMPLETE IGNORANCE regarding thyroid disease.. This disease is NOT brought on or cured by lifestyle and its regard to exercise, diet, elimination, stress or ones spiritual state. Had you done your homework, you would know this. You should be completely embarrassed for opening your mouth on this forum and posting such a STUPID comment!. Ill use my own situation as an example for you, listen up you might learn something. My thyroid disease is autoimmune and hereditary. SEVERAL generations in my family have suffered with this disease and presently I have more than a dozen female first and second cousins suffering with thyroid disease. My particular struggle began in the early 1980s and no amount of proper diet, trips to see the homeopath, exercise, stress reducing regimes or spiritual pursuit has made any difference. Oh and by the way, the 20+ years ...
Letting the trickling waterfall be my guide, I became conscious of my breath; breathing in 5 counts and out 7 counts. I did this over and over until my brain started to power down a bit….something it hadnt done in months.. Next I took a few minutes to journal out the "crazy." By a few, I mean about 40 minutes. Once I got going, I couldnt stop. All the stress, the pressure, the conquests and the defeats began flowing from my pencil. What a release! I finally let all that gunk that had gotten jammed up in my heart out of my body. Its important to release what doesnt serve you. Emotions that are suppressed within the body, tend to manifest as illnesses or complications wherever theyve been stored. In fact, in many ancient traditions, thyroid disease IS a disease of blocked communication. Chew on that a minute. Honestly, almost everyone I know with thyroid dysfunction has challenges expressing their emotions or making their voice heard so look for ways to write, sing or dance "it" out if you ...
Although studies have examined the relationship between thyroid disorder (TD) and type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM), the information on TD and type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) is limited, say researchers from Shahid Beheshti University of Medical Sciences and Aja University of Medical Science in Tehran, Iran, who report on an 11-year follow-up from the Tehran Thyroid Study. However, undetected TDs may compromise metabolic control of patients with diabetes mellitus (DM), impaired glucose tolerance, or impaired fasting glucose, the researchers point out. Undetected TDs also may increase the risk of cardiovascular diseases. And DM and prediabetes can affect thyroid tests.. ...
