161. The association of maternal thyroid function with placental hemodynamics. Full Text available with Trip Pro

The association of maternal thyroid function with placental hemodynamics. What is the clinical association of maternal thyroid function with placental hemodynamic function?A higher free thyroxine (FT4) concentration in early pregnancy is associated with higher placental vascular resistance.Suboptimal placental function is associated with preeclampsia (which, in turn, further deteriorates placental hemodynamics and impairs the fetal blood supply), fetal growth restriction and premature delivery (...) . Studies have suggested that thyroid hormone (TH) has a role in placental development through effects on trophoblast proliferation and invasion.This study was embedded in The Generation R cohort, a population-based prospective study from early fetal life onwards in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. In total, 7069 mothers with expected delivery date between April 2002 and January 2006 were enrolled during early pregnancy.Thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) and free thyroxine (FT4) concentrations were measured

participating in the 2-year Prevention of Obesity Using Novel Dietary Strategies (POUNDS) LOST randomized clinical trial. Changes in body weight and RMR were assessed during the 2-year intervention. Thyroid hormones (free triiodothyronine (T3), free thyroxine (T4), total T3, total T4 and thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH)), anthropometric measurements and biochemical parameters were assessed at baseline, 6 months and 24 months.Participants lost an average of 6.6 kg of body weight during the first 6 months (...) and subsequently regained an average of 2.7 kg of body weight over the remaining period from 6 to 24 months. Baseline free T3 and total T3 were positively associated, whereas free T4 was inversely associated, with baseline body weight, body mass index and RMR. Total T4 and TSH were not associated with these parameters. Higher baseline free T3 and free T4 levels were significantly associated with a greater weight loss during the first 6 months (P<0.05) after multivariate adjustments including dietary

167. Effect of Roux-en-Y gastric bypass on thyroid function in euthyroid patients with obesity and type 2 diabetes. (Abstract)

Effect of Roux-en-Y gastric bypass on thyroid function in euthyroid patients with obesity and type 2 diabetes. The impact of bariatric surgery on thyroid hormone levels is poorly understood.To investigate changes in serum-free thyroxine (FT4) and thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) after Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) in euthyroid patients with obesity and type 2 diabetes.University Hospital, China.Eighty-one euthyroid Chinese patients with obesity and type 2 diabetes who underwent RYGB, and 20 (...) healthy volunteers were enrolled in this retrospective study. Participants were evaluated for changes in anthropometric parameters, metabolic indexes, FT4, and TSH at baseline and 6 months after surgery. Multiple linear regression analysis was used to identify factors that could predict changes in FT4 and TSH.Mean FT4 levels decreased from 16.26-14.59 pmol/L (P<.01), while TSH levels decreased significantly (2.19±1.09 mIU/L versus 1.97±1.12 mIU/L, P = .027) 6 months postsurgery.
