BACKGROUND Endothelial dysfunction (ED) is regarded as an early step in the development of atherosclerosis. Recent experimental data showed a crosstalk between endothelial NO-synthase activity and thyrotropin production. Therefore we studied whether basal TSH can predict flow associated vasodilation (FAD) in a cohort of healthy young subjects with normal… CONTINUE READING
