We have investigated the effects of modifying the dose of thyroxine on resting energy expenditure (REE) and on the thermic effect of glucose (TEG) in 9 randomly recruited patients on chronic treatment with this hormone. The initial dose was changed twice in each patient at 6-8 wk intervals, aiming to have a normal, a slightly reduced, and a slightly elevated serum TSH concentration. A total of 27 dose points for each measured variable (3 per patient) were gathered. Dose changes were monitored… Expand
