IntroductionSubclinical thyroid dysfunction is a possible risk factor for cognitive impairment in old age, but results are inconsistent. Aim of the present study was to evaluate the prevalence of thyroid dysfunction among older community-dwelling adults and to see whether thyroid function impacts the cognitive status of the elderly.MethodsWe included 1750 participants from the Study on Aging and Dementia in Mexico (SADEM). All subjects were evaluated clinically via specific interviews. TSH… 

Subtle Thyroid Dysfunction Is Not Associated with Cognitive Decline: Results from the ELSA-Brasil.

Thyroid function and hormone levels were not associated with cognitive decline during 4 years of follow-up in middle-aged and older adults without overt thyroid dysfunction, and the implications of subtle thyroid alterations in cognition could be clarified.

Prevalence and Risk Factors of Thyroid Dysfunction in Older Adults in the Community

The prevalence of thyroid dysfunction in older adults is nearly 25%.

Relevance of TSH evaluation in elderly in-patients with non-thyroidal illness

The present results confront the idea that TSH levels at admission are irrelevant in this clinical context and suggest that patients with NTI with a lower TSH at admission were associated with a reduced ability to raise their T SH levels later on.

The results showed an association of subclinical thyroid disorders with biomarkers of sub clinical atherosclerosis, measured by carotid intima-media thickness and coronary artery calcium, insulin resistance, metabolic syndrome, and some psychiatric disorders.

The Association Between Thyroid Diseases and Alzheimer’s Disease in a National Health Screening Cohort in Korea

In this large national sample, a nested case-control study, significant relationships between several thyroid diseases and AD are found, which could better support to appreciate the pathophysiology of AD.

The relation between thyroid dysregulation and impaired cognition/behaviour: An integrative review

The need for long‐term prospective studies to capture the course of brain functional changes associated with the incidence and progression of thyroid dysregulations along with the confounding effects of non‐modifiable risk factors such as gender and ethnicity is highlighted.

Association of Hypothyroidism and the Risk of Cognitive Dysfunction: A Meta-Analysis

Hypothyroidism was associated with a reduced risk of cognitive dysfunction after adjustment for vascular-disease comorbidities, and more prospective observational studies are needed to investigate the relationship between hypothyroidistan and cognitive dysfunction.

Depressive Symptoms and Cognitive Decline Among Chinese Rural Elderly Individuals: A Longitudinal Study With 2-Year Follow-Up

Investigating the longitudinal associations between changes in depressive symptoms and cognitive decline and MCI incidence among Chinese rural elderly individuals found increased depressive symptoms were associated with more Cognitive decline and higher risks of incident MCI among rural residents.

Association between hot flashes severity and oxidative stress among Mexican postmenopausal women: A cross-sectional study

The findings suggest an association between HFs severity and OS in Mexican postmenopausal women and no association in premenopausalWomen is seen.



Subclinical Thyroid Dysfunction and Cognitive Decline in Old Age

The data are not in support of treatment of subclinical thyroid dysfunction to prevent cognitive dysfunction in later life, and only large randomized controlled trials can provide definitive evidence.

Subclinical hypothyroidism and functional mobility in older adults.

Generally, well-functioning 70- to 79-year-old individuals with subclinical hypothyroidism do not demonstrate increased risk of mobility problems, and those with mild elevations in TSH level show a slight functional advantage.

Treated hypothyroidism, cognitive function, and depressed mood in old age: the Rancho Bernardo Study.

Long-term treated hypothyroidism is not associated with impaired CF or depressed mood in old age, and the lack of association with CF is reassuring with regard to long-term use of thyroid hormone therapy.

Is Subclinical Thyroid Dysfunction in the Elderly Associated with Depression or Cognitive Dysfunction?

This study provides good evidence that subclinical thyroid dysfunction is not related to disorders of cognition and mood in older persons, and examines possible associations in a large community-based cohort of persons 65 years of age or older (the Birmingham Elderly Thyroid Study).

The Colorado thyroid disease prevalence study.

The results confirm that thyroid dysfunction is common, may often go undetected, and may be associated with adverse health outcomes that can be avoided by serum TSH measurement.

Prevalence of thyroid disorders among older people: results from the São Paulo Ageing & Health Study.

There was no difference in prevalence rates according to gender, but almost 40% of women were diagnosed and under treatment compared to 9% of men, and the burden of thyroid disorders in this sample is high and most participants were not aware of them.
