BACKGROUND Heart rate recovery (HRR) and chronotropic incompetence (CI) in patients with subclinical hypothyroidism (SCH) has not been explored previously. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the HRR and CI in patients with SCH. METHODS Twenty-five patients (11 men, 14 women with a mean age of 36 + or - 10 years) who were diagnosed SCH determined by an increased serum thyrothrophine (TSH) concentration (>4.0 ng/mL) and the normal free triiodothyronine (fT3) and free thyroxin (fT4… CONTINUE READING
