The link between Hashimoto's disease and brain health

(NaturalNews) Hashimoto's disease, also called Hashimoto's thyroiditis, is currently the most common cause of hypothyroidism in the United States. But, did you know that this autoimmune disease can threaten your brain health?Hypothyroidism, or underactive thyroid, has become increasingly...

CONCLUSION: Metformin significantly reduces TPOAb level and TgAb level in patients with HT and SH, especially TPOAb. This study is the first to provide a preliminary theoretical basis for the clinical application of metformin in the treatment of HT. PMID: 32741222 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Background: Immunological and hormonal disorders have undoubted influence on the development of atherosclerotic process. Autoimmune diseases accompanying type 1 diabetes (T1D) may additionally accelerate atherosclerosis progression and increase the risk of cardiovascular events in the future. The influence of subclinical hypothyroidism on the cardiovascular system, in particular, has recently aroused great interest. The aim of our study was to assess intima-media thickness (cIMT) of common carotid arteries and the occurrence of classical atherosclerosis risk factors together with selected new biomarkers of cardiovascular d...

CONCLUSIONS: Our data describe a novel murine model of autoimmune thyroiditis which does not require the use of adjuvants to break down tolerance and that will allow investigators to test the effects of hTG variants in the pathoetiology of Hashimoto's thyroiditis (HT).

The objective of the study was to assess the rate of recurrent pregnancy loss in patients with HT isolated or accompanied with non-endocrine autoimmune diseases. METHODS: This is a retrospective observational cohort study with systematic review of the NEAD with concurrent HT in an outpatient Endocrinology Unit at a University Hospital. Among the 3480 consecutively examined women with HT, 87 patients met the criteria of RPL and represented the study group. Sixty-five of them had isolated HT and 22 women had HT+NEAD. RESULTS: The rate of RPL in women with HT was 2.1% versus 5.64% observed in women with HT+NEAD (OR=2....

StroevThe versatile clinical manifestations of the Hashimoto's chronic autoimmune thyroiditis often include psycho-neurological disorders. Although hypothyroidism disturbs significantly the ontogenesis and functions of central nervous system, causing in severe cases of myxedema profound impairment of cognitive abilities and even psychosis, the behavioral, motor and other psychoneurological disorders accompany euthyroid and slightly hypoth...

ConclusionsThe detected alterations of serum protein sialylation might be caused by chronic inflammation in HT. The obtained results completed our previous IgG N-glycosylation analysis in autoimmune thyroid patients and showed that the altered N-glycosylation of serum proteins is characteristic for autoimmunity process in HT.General Significance:Thyroid autoimmunity is accompanied by changes of serum protein sialylation.Graphical abstract

This study raises the possibility of a role for surgery for patients with Hashimoto’s thyroiditis who continue to feel poorly despite optimal treatment with thyroid hormone. However, the study, while well done, is a relatively small one. We need longer-term follow up and confirmation with additional studies done on diverse populations. It’s also important to consider that thyroid surgery in patients with advanced Hashimoto’s thyroiditis is difficult. Rates of complications, including injury to the laryngeal nerve (which controls voice) and the parathyroid glands (which maintain normal blood calcium levels...

The objective of our study is to investigate how often ABO and Rh blood groups are seen in benign thyroid diseases, especially in autoimmune-mediated thyroid diseases, and hence whether there is an association between blood groups and thyroid diseases. A total of 958 patients who were followed due to any benign thyroid disease were included in the study. The study population comprised 958 patients, 550 with Hashimoto's hypothyroidism, 160 with non-Hashimoto's hypothyroidism, 103 with iatrogenic hypothyroidism, 93 with central hypothyroidism, and 28 with Graves' and 24 with non-Graves' hyperthyroidism. Of the patients, 47.1...

Uterus globulin-associated protein 1 (UGRP1) was associated with GD in our previous study. Here we investigated the role of UGRP1 in the development of autoimmune thyroid disease (AITD). The results showed that UGRP1 was expressed in the thyrocyte...
