Aim of this study was to see any effect on respiratory functions in hypothyroid patients after pranayama (yoga). The subjects for the study were 20 hypothyroid females, 39.70 +/- 8.27 years of mean age referred from medicine department of UCMS & G.T.B. Hospital. Spiro metric recordings were taken with hypair (version-1.28). Baseline (first) recordings were taken when patient came for the first time. Patients came to yoga lab in physiology department for 21 days continuously where they were… 
Improvement in Ventilatory Function through Yogic Practices
Objective: The present study was carried out to evaluate the effect of three months yogic practices on ventilatory functions. Methods: Sixty (n=60) healthy male volunteers (age range 21–33 years and
Effect of yoga training and detraining on respiratory muscle strength in pre-pubertal children: A randomized trial
This study suggests that practice of yoga for a short duration (3 months) of time can significantly improve respiratory muscle strength in pediatric population.
Aim: To see the effect of Yoga on thyroid function tests, quality of life [WHO-QOL-BREF (WHO quality of life Brief version)], depression [BDI-II (Beck Depression Inventory)] and quality of sleep
Inspiratory muscle training versus Aerobic training: Improvement on pulmonary function, exercise capacity and cardiorespiratory itness in females with hypothyroidism
The effect of hypothyroidism on the respiratory system is proven in various studies. The study is aimed to compare Inspiratory muscle training and Aerobic training on lung functions, exercise
Effect of 6 months intense Yoga practice on lipid profile, thyroxine medication and serum TSH level in women suffering from hypothyroidism: A pilot study
6 months practice of yoga may help in improving cholesterol level, serum TSH, may also help in reducing the thyroxine requirement in female patients suffering from hypothyroidism, however, further randomized controlled studies need to be conducted to confirm the present finding.
Effect of short-term naturopathy and yoga intervention on anthropometric variables, lipid profile and thyroid profile in obese hypothyroid patients: a randomised controlled trial
Reduction in the body weight, BMI and improvement in serum lipid profile and serum thyroid profile in case group subjects compared to control group suggest that naturopathy and yoga have therapeutic and protective effects in the management of obese hypothyroid patients.
Efficacy of yoga in controlling subclinical-hypothyroidism: a randomized controlled trial
If the yoga intervention used in this study is effective, it will be a low-cost feasible treatment for subclinical hypothyroidism in India.
Study of therapeutic role of yoga (Hathyoga) on lipid profile in dyslipidemic individuals of Ahmedabad city
Yoga (Hathyoga) can be a new added adjuvant and cost effective therapy for the patients with abnormal lipid profile and a significant reduction was observed in Total Cholesterol, Total Triglycerides, LDL-ch cholesterol and VLDLcholesterol as well as a significant elevation of HDL-cholesterol.
Impact of Overt and Subclinical Hypothyroidism on Exercise Tolerance: A Systematic Review
A limited body of knowledge exists concerning exercise tolerance in treated patients with hypothyroidism, and there is an insufficient amount of quantitative studies on the effects of a physical training program.


Airway response to inhaled salbutamol in hyperthyroid and hypothyroid patients before and after treatment.
It is suggested that an inverse relationship exists between the level of thyroid function and airway beta adrenergic responsiveness and there was a negative correlation between the AUC and serum thyroxine values.
Oxygen consumption during pranayamic type of very slow-rate breathing.
To determine whether the yogic Ujjayi pranayamic type of breathing that involves sensory awareness and consciously controlled, extremely slow-rate breathing including at least a period of
Oxygen Consumption and Respiration Following Two Yoga Relaxation Techniques
The idea that a combination of yoga postures interspersed with relaxation reduces arousal more than relaxation alone does supports the idea that the combination of both “calming and stimulating” measures may be especially helpful in reaching a state of mental equilibrium.
Respiratory muscle strength in hypothyroidism.
It is concluded that hypothyroidism affects respiratory muscle strength and that this weakness is linearly related to thyroid hormone levels.
Effect of Rhythmic Breathing (Sudarshan Kriya and Pranayam) on Immune Functions and Tobacco Addiction
It is concluded that the inexpensive and easy to learn and practice breathing processes (SK and P) demonstrated an increase in NK cells and a reduction in tobacco consumption, which could mean that the regular practice of SK and P might reduce the incidence and progression of cancer.
Immediate effects of heavy exercise on the circulating thyroid hormones.
It appears that the circulating thyroid hormones are not acutely affected after maximal or near-maximal exercise; however, the patient population was highly select.
Response of thyrotropin, prolactin and free thyroid hormones to graded exercise in normal male subjects.
Serum levels of thyrotrophin (TSH), prolactin (PRL), free thyroxine (FT4) and free triiodothyronine (FT3) were determined before and after physical exercise in 21 normal male subjects. The subjects
Studies of autonomic functions in practitioners of Yoga in India.
Testing various claims of voluntary control of autonomic functions and recording physiological changes during Yogic meditation were the major purposes in going to India.
Effects of exercise and physical fitness on the pituitary-thyroid axis and on prolactin secretion in male runners.
The effects of acute exercise and thyrotropin-releasing hormone on the pituitary-thyroid axis were examined in men placed into three well-defined categories of physical fitness. There were 20
Ventilatory control in myxedema and hypothyroidism.
It is concluded that both myxedema and hypothyroid states produce depression of hypoxic ventilatory drive that is responsive to replacement therapy, which may contribute to the hypoventilation seen in myxingema.
