Hyperthyroidism is associated with exercise intolerance. Previous research, however, has shown that cardiac output is either normal or enhanced during exercise in the hyperthyroid state. We therefore hypothesized that blood flow to working skeletal muscle is augmented in hyperthyroid animals during in vivo submaximal exercise and, consequently, that noncardiovascular factors are responsible for intolerance to exercise. To test this hypothesis, rats were made hyperthyroid (Hyper) over 6-12 wk… CONTINUE READING
