121. Effects of short term hypothyroidism on the lipid transfer to HDL and other parameters related to lipoprotein metabolism in patients submitted to thyroidectomy for thyroid cancer. (PubMed)

a short period of overt hypothyroidism.Eighteen women (age 44 ± 11 years; body mass index 27.9 ± 5.2 kg/m2) were studied before total thyroidectomy for thyroid cancer, when they were euthyroid, and after thyroidectomy, in overt hypothyroidism for three weeks, following levothyroxine withdrawal for performance of a whole-body scan.Thyrotropin and free thyroxine confirmed hypothyroidism; low thyroglobulin and radioiodine uptake indicated near absence of thyroid tissue.

122. Marked improvement of thyroid function and autoimmunity by Aloe barbadensis miller juice in patients with subclinical hypothyroidism (PubMed)

subclinical hypothyroidism (SCH). Upon checking her biochemical thyroid panel when taking daily Aloe barbardensis Miller juice (ABMJ) for thyroid-unrelated reasons, she noticed a decrease in serum thyroperoxidase autoantibodies (TPOAb) and thyrotropin (TSH) and an increase in serum free thyroxine (FT4). Based on this observation, we enrolled 30 consecutive HT women with levothyroxine-untreated SCH and high TPOAb levels. All of them took ABMJ (50 ml daily) for nine months and were tested for serum TSH, FT4 (...) , free triiodothyronine (FT3) and TPOAb. Measurements were performed at baseline and at months 3 and 9. TSH, FT4 and TPOAb improved significantly already at month 3 and further (-61%, +23% and -56%) at month 9. However, FT3 decreased significantly at month 3 (-16%) with no further decrease at month 9, so that the FT4:FT3 ratio increased significantly (+33% and + 49%). At baseline, 100% of women had TSH > 4.0 mU/L and TPOAb > 400 U/ml, but frequencies fell to 0% and 37%, respectively, at month 9

124. Effect of Prepregnancy Obesity on Litter Size in Primiparous Minipigs (PubMed)

(follicle-stimulating hormone, luteinizing hormone, estradiol, progesterone, testosterone, and prolactin) and peptide hormones (insulin-like growth factor, glucagon, cortisol, growth hormone, free thyroxine, free triiodothyronine, insulin, and leptin). We also measured weight, abdominal circumference, neck circumference, and body length and then calculated the porcine obesity index. Data were analyzed by one-way ANOVA, and means were compared by least significance difference testing. Pearson correlation (...) between parameters and litter size was analyzed. Prepregnancy porcine obesity index and litter size were negatively correlated in primiparous minipigs. Litter size was influenced by luteinizing hormone, estradiol, progesterone, testosterone, prolactin, follicle-stimulating hormone, cortisol, insulin-like growth factor 1, growth hormone, free thyroxine, insulin, and leptin. In conclusion, prepregnancy obesity reduces litter size in primiparous minipigs.

We found possible evidence of (chronic) low-grade metabolic inflammation (ferritin and HDL-C). FT3, TT3, TT4, and rT3 correlated positively with hsCRP in CFS patients and all subjects.

130. Impaired Sensitivity to Thyroid Hormones Is Associated With Diabetes and Metabolic Syndrome. (PubMed)

Impaired Sensitivity to Thyroid Hormones Is Associated With Diabetes and Metabolic Syndrome. Diabetes prevalence and incidence increase among individuals with hypothyroidism but also among those with hyperthyroxinemia, which seems contradictory. Both high free thyroxine (fT4) and high thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) are present in the resistance to thyroid hormone syndrome. A mild acquired resistance to thyroid hormone might occur in the general population and be associated with diabetes. We (...) aimed to analyze the association of resistance to thyroid hormone indices (the Thyroid Feedback Quantile-based Index [TFQI], proposed in this work, and the previously used Thyrotroph T4 Resistance Index and TSH Index) with diabetes.We calculated the aforementioned resistance to thyroid hormone indices based on a U.S. representative sample of 5,129 individuals ≥20 years of age participating in the 2007-2008 National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES).
