Effect of triiodothyronine on leucine kinetics, metabolic rate, glucose concentration and insulin secretion rate during two weeks of fasting in obese women.

Abstract

We investigated the effect of the fasting-induced reduction in triiodothyronine (T3) on metabolic changes that occur during fasting. In five obese women (T3 group) the serum T3 level during a 2200 kcal/day diet was 3.34 +/- 0.23 nmol/l while taking 20 micrograms T3 8-hourly, 0.65 +/- 0.04 after one week of fasting while not taking T3, and 2.9 +/- 0.3 after… (More)
