OBJECTIVE: Diabetes mellitus and thyroid disease are the two common endocrinopathies seen in adult population. Studies to evaluate thyroid disorders in patients with type 2 diabetes are lacking. The aim of this study was to compare prevalence of thyroid dysfunction and autoim-munity in type 2 diabetic patients with age and sex matched non-diabetic control group. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Among pat...متن کامل
Background: Chronic urticaria (CU) is a common skin disorder that accounts for 15%-20% of dermatological cases. There is growing evidence that some cases of chronic idiopathic urticarial (CIU) are associated with various autoimmune diseases, including thyroid autoimmunity. This study aims to identify the thyroidprofile, including thyroid autoantibodies, in patients with CU.Methods: This case-co...متن کامل
Three women are described from a study of patients with postpartum thyroiditis whose sera gave spuriously increased concentrations of free thyroid hormone because of antibody binding of radiolabeled thyroxin (T4) and triiodothyronine (T3) analogs. All of the women showed increased serum concentrations of thyroid autoantibodies. The antibody binding of radiolabeled analogs and its effect on free...متن کامل
Thyroid hormone replacement one day before 131I therapy in patients with well-differentiated thyroid cancer
Objective: The current study aimed to determine the efficacy of radioiodine-131 (131I) ablation therapy with thyroid hormone replacement one day before 131I administration in patients with well-differentiated thyroid cancer (DTC). Methods: This retrospective study included 29 patients who underwent 131I therapies twice for DTC during 6-12 months. Since all the patients obviously had residual l...متن کامل
The Relationship between Thyroid Hormone Levels and Body Iron Status in Iranian Hypothyroidism Patients
Backgrounds and Aims: Thyroid hormones have a crucial physiological role to maintain balance of metabolism of body. Thyroid hormones have an important role in metabolism and proliferation of blood cells. Thyroid gland also has a vital influence on erythropoiesis by induction of erythropoietin secretion and proliferation of erythroid progenitors. In the present study, it was tried to evaluate th...متن کامل
OBJECTIVE: Due to the increased prevalence of thyroid dysfunction in subjects with type 2 diabetes and also this fact that antibodies could potentially identify subjects at risk of thyroid dysfunction, this study was conducted to investigate thyroid autoimmunity in type 2 diabetic patients. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Among patients referred to Yazd Diabetes Research Center, 4000 type 2 diabetic pat...متن کامل
