Plasma norepinephrine kinetics, dopamine-beta-hydroxylase, and chromogranin-A, in hypothyroid patients before and following replacement therapy.

Abstract

Whether the increased plasma norepinephrine level reported in hypothyroidism is the result of impaired norepinephrine (NE) clearance or increased NE release by nerve terminals is unknown. We, therefore, measured plasma NE levels and clearance in 11 hypothyroid patients before [T4 index, 41.2 +/- 7.7 nmol/L (mean +/- SEM); TSH, 71.4 +/- 23.0 mU/L] and 4… (More)
