It is generaily believed that the alterations in total body oxygen consumption which accompany functional disturbances of the thyroid gland reflect widespread metabolic changes in all cells and tissues (1, 2). Numerous studies have identified some of the tissues that participate in the over-all disturbance of metabolic rate. For example, in vitro, kidney, liver, heart, and skeletal muscle tissues of animals previously treated with thyroid substance or thyroxine display increased oxygen… CONTINUE READING
