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....

CONCLUSIONS: These findings are the first to indicate that HT induces a nonreceptive endometrial milieu in the euthyroid state, which may underlie the detrimental effects of HT itself on embryo implantation. PMID: 31729993 [PubMed - in process]

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...

Abstract Hashimoto's thyroiditis is one of the most common organspecific autoimune diseases and the most frequent cause of hypothyroidism in areas with sufficient iodine supply. Excessively stimulated T cells CD4+ and their differentiated cells are known to play a key role in the pathogenesis. It is currently accepted that on the one hand genetic susceptibility, environmental factors, existential factors (gender difference) play an important role, on the other hand gut and intestinal microbiota seem to contribute to its development too. Diagnosis requires a detailed medical history, sonography, and ...

Authors: Soh SB, Aw TC Abstract Thyroid disorders are common, affecting more than 10% of people in the US, and laboratory tests are integral in the management of these conditions. The repertoire of thyroid tests includes blood tests for thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH), free thyroxine, free triiodothyronine, thyroglobulin (Tg), thyroglobulin antibodies (Tg-Ab), thyroid peroxidase antibodies (TPO-Ab), TSH receptor antibodies (TRAb), and calcitonin. TSH and free thyroid hormone tests are frequently used to assess the functional status of the thyroid. TPO-Ab and TRAb tests are used to diagnose Hashimoto's thyroiditis...

CONCLUSIONS: Our findings support the evidence that women with SSc can have successful pregnancies despite a higher prevalence of PD/IUGR. Diffuse SSc and Scl-70 positivity may predispose SSc women to PF. Routine thyroid workup may be included in the multi-specialist monitoring of SSc women for the early detection of thyroid dysfunctions. PMID: 28825764 [PubMed - in process]

CONCLUSION: Diagnosis and management of fetal hyperthyroidism can be challenging. TSH receptor antibody testing should be considered in pregnant women with any history of autoimmune thyroid disease and symptoms of fetal hyperthyroidism. PMID: 27813690 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

By: Dr. Alan Christianson When someone you know is living with hypothyroidism, it can be tempting to think that if only the doctor would prescribe an extra helping of thyroid hormone, your friend or loved one would feel so much better and would enjoy life more. And in some cases, an extra helping might be in order. In other cases, not so much. Too much thyroid hormone can actually be dangerous, which is why doctors are loathe to bump the levothyroxin dosage up an extra 25 micrograms or so for one of their patients who's still experiencing hypothyroid symptoms. Tests always come first, and there's a good reason for that....
