Low serum triiodothyronine (T3) concentration is frequently found in patients with chronic renal failure (CRF). To test the hypothesis that this may serve to minimize protein catabolism in these patients, we measured nitrogen balance (Nb) in seven CRF and four control subjects in the basal state and when serum T3 concentration was elevated by L-triiodothyronine (LT3) and suppressed by sodium ipodate administration. In the basal state, both the controls and the CRF patients were in positive Nb… CONTINUE READING
