Goals: This study was designed to investigate the clinical features of nonthyroidal illness syndrome (NTIS) compared with euthyroid patients in Crohn’s disease (CD), to explore the etiology of NTIS in CD, to evaluate the clinical outcomes of NTIS patients, and to inspect the correlation of clinical variables and NTIS, and their ability of differentiating NTIS from euthyroid patients. Background: NTIS has been described for more than 30 years. However, only few studies focused on the… Expand
Nonthyroidal illness syndrome in patients with short bowel syndrome.
TLDR
A potential pituitary thyrotroph dysfunction and hypodeiodination condition may play a role in the pathophysiology of NTIS in SBS and IGF-1 is a meaningful predictor for distinguishing NTIS from euthyroid. Expand
Concomitant Thyroid Disorders and Inflammatory Bowel Disease: A Literature Review
  • T. Shizuma
  • Medicine
  • BioMed research international
  • 2016
TLDR
There might be no obvious differences of fatal prognoses between IBD patients with thyroid diseases and patients with Thyroid diseases without IBD, but concomitant UC and HT might be relatively common in patients with multiple autoimmune disorders, and AG is one of the complications with CD patients. Expand
Infliximab Therapy Could Decrease the Risk of the Development of Thyroid Disorders in Pediatric Patients With Crohn's Disease
TLDR
The data suggest the protective role of IFX therapy in the development of thyroid disorders and indicate the usefulness of thyroid ultrasound to identify the risk of probable AITD in pediatric patients with CD. Expand
Inflammatory bowel disease severity and activity are correlated to thyroid gland nodularity, chronic nonthyroidal illness, and thyroid autoantibodies but not thyroid dysfunction
TLDR
A significant negative correlation existed between free T3 and free T4 and several indices of IBD activity/severity and AITD and altered thyroid function were the same among IBD patients and controls. Expand
Serum markers of Inflammatory Bowel Disease: A literature review
TLDR
C-reactive protein is an acute phase reactant which is best used to assess inflammation in IBD and Fecal calprotectin and lactoferrin are reliable fecal markers to monitor disease activity. Expand
Nonthyroidal Illness Syndrome in Cardiac Illness Involves Elevated Concentrations of 3,5-Diiodothyronine and Correlates with Atrial Remodeling
TLDR
This study confirms reduced FT3 concentrations in patients with POAF and is the first to report on elevated 3,5-T2 concentrations in cardiac NTIS, indicating the pathogenesis of NTIS seems to involve more differentiated allostatic mechanisms. Expand
A review of literature on thyroid hormone disorders originated from extra thyroidal illness
TLDR
There is not any suggestion that hypothyroidism originated from non-thyroidal illness can be rapidly leads to fatal outcome but such low reduction in thyrod hormones and particularly T3 can be considered as a key factor for the initiating the medical attendance and the necessary steps to prevent further clinical complication.

Prevalence of Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) Among Teachers in Abha City; Saudi Arabia
Background: The Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) is part of the larger group of functional gastrointestinal (GI) disorders that despite differences in location and symptom patterns, share commonExpand
Circadian rhythm abnormalities - Association with the course of inflammatory bowel disease.
TLDR
The aim of this review is to show the current state of knowledge about the relationship between circadian rhythm disorders, sleep disturbance and inflammation in the GI tract and to analyze the possibility of employing this knowledge in diagnosis and treatment of IBD. Expand
Calculated Parameters of Thyroid Homeostasis: Emerging Tools for Differential Diagnosis and Clinical Research
TLDR
An overview of current clinical research on the basis of mathematical thyroid models is delivered, including a summary of large clinical trials and previously unpublished results of validation studies based on simulation and clinical samples. Expand

TLDR
This study retrospectively assessed in a cohort of Italian IBD patients, the co-occurrence of IBD diagnosis and diagnosis of thyroid disorders other than cancer, and found an increased risk for thyroid disease overall was not found. Expand

TLDR
A higher rate of thyroid disease apperance at IBD patients is found in accordance with several works published in literature. Expand
Dangerous Dogmas in Medicine: The Nonthyroidal Illness Syndrome
TLDR
The condition has been called the euthyroid sick syndrome, but an alternative designation, which does not presume the metabolic status of the patient, is nonthyroidal illness syndrome (NTIS), which seems a preferable name in light of present knowledge and will be used in this review. Expand
The AQUA-FONTIS study: protocol of a multidisciplinary, cross-sectional and prospective longitudinal study for developing standardized diagnostics and classification of non-thyroidal illness syndrome
TLDR
The identification and differentiation of different functional states of thyrotropic feedback control in order to define relevant evaluation criteria for the prognosis of affected patients and the significance of an innovative physiological index approach (SPINA) in differential diagnosis between NTIS and latent (so-called "sub-clinical") thyrotoxicosis is assessed. Expand
The prevalence of hyper- and hypothyroidism in patients with ulcerative colitis.
TLDR
It is concluded that the prevalence of hyper-/hypothyroidism is relatively low in patients with ulcerative colitis, at least in this country, and does not justify a systematic investigation of the thyroid function, except in selected cases, probably those with scarce or no response to standard therapeutic measures. Expand
Coexistence of hyperthyroidism and ulcerative colitis: report of 4 cases and a review of the literature.
TLDR
The clinician must bear in mind that coexistence of hyperthyroidism and ulcerative colitis in some patients, although infrequent, nevertheless is a reality, which obviously is very important for the patient's outcome. Expand
Euthyroid Sick Syndrome in Pulmonary Tuberculosis before and after Treatment
TLDR
Data suggest that an undetectable free T3 concentration at presentation reflects severity of illness and predicts a subsequent high mortality in patients admitted with newly diagnosed pulmonary tuberculosis. Expand
Thyroid involvement in patients with active inflammatory bowel diseases.
TLDR
The association of IBD with thyroid disorders, as well as the involvement of various organs, confirms the view that IBD is a systemic disease. Expand

TLDR
Based on the nature of the complaints, investigations to diagnose either form of IBD or to assess disease activity will vary and will also be influenced by geographic variations in other conditions that might mimic IBD. Expand
