OBJECTIVE To determine whether the increasing prevalence of feline hyperthyroidism is the result of aging of the cat population and whether consumption of canned foods at various times throughout life is associated with increased risk of hyperthyroidism. DESIGN Retrospective and case-control studies. STUDY POPULATION Medical records of 169,576 cats, including 3,570 cats with hyperthyroidism, evaluated at 9 veterinary school hospitals during a 20-year period, and 109 cats with… Expand
Risk factors for feline hyperthyroidism in the UK.
TLDR
Exposure to food packaged in a can was identified as the major risk factor for the development of hyperthyroidism in cats from the UK. Expand
Prevalence of and risk factors for feline hyperthyroidism among a clinic population in Southern Germany.
TLDR
Older, female non-purebred cats are predisposed to hyperthyroidism which is frequently diagnosed after the initial clinical suspicion leading to a prevalence of 12.3% among the study population. Expand
Prevalence of and risk factors for feline hyperthyroidism in South Africa
TLDR
Hyperthyroidism does not appear to be uncommon in the South African cat population and no significant relationship between vaccinations, parasite control or indoor environment and hyperthyroidistan was observed. Expand
Prevalence of and risk factors for feline hyperthyroidism in Hong Kong
TLDR
The prevalence of feline hyperthyroidism in Hong Kong was less than that reported for most other parts of the world, despite the presence of previously identified risk factors. Expand
Multivariate analysis of risk factors for feline hyperthyroidism in New Zealand
TLDR
The results of this study support and extend those in several earlier reports and show that cats in New Zealand are, in many respects, similar to cats in Europe and North America in terms of their susceptibility to hyperthyroidism. Expand
Prevalence of feline hyperthyroidism in mature cats in urban population in Warsaw
TLDR
Feline hyperthyroidism in Warsaw is a prevalent disease and probably results from chronic exposure to dietary and environmental factors, considering risk factors. Expand
Prevalence and risk factors for hyperthyroidism in Irish cats from the greater Dublin area
TLDR
The high proportion of hyperthyroid cats without palpableGoitre (> 60%) may reflect failure to detect goitre and account for the perceived low prevalence of this condition in Ireland. Expand
Elevated PBDE levels in pet cats: sentinels for humans?
TLDR
The hypothesis that cats are highly exposed to PBDEs is supported; hence, pet cats may serve as sentinels to better assess human exposure and adverse health outcomes related to low-level but chronic PBDE exposure. Expand
Effect of Feeding an Iodine‐Restricted Diet in Cats with Spontaneous Hyperthyroidism
TLDR
Restricted‐iodine diets were effective at maintaining serum TT4 concentrations within reference ranges for a majority of cats with spontaneous hyperthyroidism over 1 year, although not all clinical signs of hyperthyoidism improved. Expand
Feline hyperthyroidism reported in primary-care veterinary practices in England: prevalence, associated factors and spatial distribution
TLDR
This study highlights feline hyperthyroidism as a high-prevalence disease in England, and reports reduced odds of diagnosis in certain breeds and purebred cats overall. Expand

Evaluation of environmental, nutritional, and host factors in cats with hyperthyroidism.
TLDR
A persistent protective effect of breed (ie, Siamese or Himalayan) was found and results suggested a 2- to 3-fold increase in risk of developing hyperthyroidism among cats eating a diet composed mostly of canned cat food and a 3- fold increase among those using cat litter. Expand
Evaluation of dietary and environmental risk factors for hyperthyroidism in cats.
TLDR
Results suggest that cats that prefer to eat certain flavors of canned cat food may have a significantly increased risk of hyperthyroidism. Expand
Feline hyperthyroidism: A descriptive and case-control study
TLDR
It seems likely, in view of the distinctive nature of the signs and the lack of evidence of thyroid enlargement and clinical signs in previous feline necropsy series, that feline hyperthyroidism is truly occurring with increased frequency today. Expand
Diagnosis of occult hyperthyroidism in cats.
TLDR
This chapter discusses a growing number of cats with clinical signs of hyperthyroidism and palpably large thyroid glands whose serum total thyroxine and triiodothyronine concentrations are within the normal or borderline range, as well as to discuss some of the problems confronted in diagnosing occult hyper thyroidroidism in cats. Expand
Iodine-induced hyperthyroidism: occurrence and epidemiology.
TLDR
More information is needed on the long-term health impact of IIH or "subclinical" IIH, especially in the course of prophylaxis programs with iodized salt or iodinated oil in regions where access to health care is limited. Expand
Hyperthyroidism in the cat: ten cases.
In ten neutered crossbred cats 10 to 14 years old and of both sexes, hyperthyroidism was evidenced by hyperactivity, weight loss despite increased appetite, frequent defecation with bulky stools,Expand
Methimazole treatment of 262 cats with hyperthyroidism.
TLDR
The efficacy and safety of the antithyroid drug methimazole were evaluated over a 3-year period in 262 cats with hyperthyroidism, which included anorexia, vomiting, lethargy, self-induced excoriation of the face and neck, bleeding diathesis, and icterus caused by hepatopathy. Expand
Goitrogens in food and water.

TLDR
Malnutrition and poor socioeconomic conditions, as for iodine deficiency, enhance the action of environmental goitrogens, and a coordinated multidisciplinary approach is essential to solving this public health problem. Expand

TLDR
Future studies should seek to refine diagnoses, include control animals for comparison, and target the elucidation of causes that may lead to preventative recommendations. Expand
Etiopathology of feline toxic nodular goiter.
TLDR
The etiopathology of feline toxic nodular goiter of the cat, the history, morphologic findings, xenotransplantation and cell culture studies, evidence for and against circulating thyroid stimulators and epizootiological studies of the feline disease have been summarized. Expand
