Objective:To investigate whether there is an association between serum thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) within the normal range and body mass index (BMI).Design and subjects:The study was performed in 6164 subjects (2813 males) who attended the fifth Tromsø study in 2001, and in 1867 subjects (873 males) that attended both the fourth Tromsø study in 1994/1995 as well as the fifth Tromsø study.Measurements:Height, weight, and serum TSH were measured in all subjects, and smoking status was… Expand
Association between serum TSH concentration and body mass index in euthyroid subjects: the role of smoking.
TLDR
It is suggested that a significant positive association exists between TSH and BMI in euthyroid nonsmokers, and in the subgroup with negative thyroid autoimmunity. Expand
Association between a serum thyroid-stimulating hormone concentration within the normal range and indices of obesity in Japanese men and women.
TLDR
Significant positive associations between the serum TSH concentration, body weight and BMI were detected in men only, and an interaction with the smoking status was observed for this association. Expand
Increased TSH in obesity: Evidence for a BMI-independent association with leptin.
TLDR
An increase in TSH observed in obese subjects was the consequence of both fat mass accumulation and a positive energy-balance, and was correlated with leptin independently of BMI. Expand
Association of serum TSH with high body mass differs between smokers and never-smokers.
TLDR
The association of low thyroid function with high body mass was as least as strong in current smokers as in never-smokers, and the results clearly show that the association is not limited to nonsmokers, as previously suggested. Expand
The Relationship Between TSH Levels and Body Mass Index in Overweight Euthyroid Subjects: Role of Autoimmunity
TLDR
In the initial assessment of obesity, the determination of TSH could be associate to ATAs, for identifying, among the patients with increased TSH, those affected by autoimmune thyroiditis. Expand

TLDR
The results suggest that the relationship between TSH and BMI observed in euthyroid subjects is lost when subjects with negative autoimmunity are selected. Expand
Association between serum TSH concentration within the normal range and adiposity.
TLDR
Further longitudinal studies are needed to better understand the mechanisms by which TSH concentration might impact body weight. Expand
Association between Thyroid Function and Body Mass Index: A 10-Year Follow-Up
TLDR
In normal-weight euthyroid individuals, changes in serum concentrations of FT4, but not TSH, may contribute to change in body weight. Expand
Relationship between Thyroid-Stimulating Hormone and Insulin in Euthyroid Obese Men
TLDR
In obese males, insulin resistance is significantly related with impairment of thyroid function, and this situation seems to be attenuated with age. Expand
Determination of age and sex specific TSH and FT4 reference limits in overweight and obese individuals in an iodine-replete region: Tehran Thyroid Study (TTS)
TLDR
Compared to the normal weight population, obese individuals have slightly lower FT4 concentrations accompanied by similar TSH levels, while upper limits of TSH and FT4 show increasing and decreasing patterns, respectively. Expand

Thyroid dysfunction is not associated with alterations in serum leptin levels.
TLDR
It is suggested that leptin levels are not affected by thyroid dysfunction, and there was a significant positive correlation between BMI and leptin level for this subgroup, irrespective of their thyroid status. Expand
Pituitary-thyroid axis, thyroid volume and leptin in healthy adults.
TLDR
The correlation between leptin and thyroid volume in females is probably a consequence that leptin and iodine deficiency patients with thyroid diseases usually have disturbances relating to body weight and thermogenesis, regulated in parallel by variables relating to anthropometry and body composition.

Serum TSH, T(4), and thyroid antibodies in the United States population (1988 to 1994): National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES III).
TLDR
TSH and the prevalence of antithyroid antibodies are greater in females, increase with age, and are more in whites and Mexican Americans than in blacks, which needs more research to relate these findings to clinical status. Expand
Lean body mass is a major determinant of levothyroxine dosage in the treatment of thyroid diseases.
TLDR
Individual l-T(4) requirements are dependent on lean body mass, particularly in subjects with high body mass index values that may be due either to increased muscular mass or to obesity. Expand
Prevalence of thyroid disease, thyroid dysfunction and thyroid peroxidase antibodies in a large, unselected population. The Health Study of Nord-Trondelag (HUNT).
TLDR
In spite of a high prevalence of recognised thyroid disease in the population a considerable number of inhabitants have undiagnosed thyroid dysfunction and also positive TPOAb. Expand
Influence of cigarette smoking on goiter formation, thyroglobulin, and thyroid hormone levels in women.
TLDR
It seems possible that cigarette smoking may have two, calorigenically opposed, effects on thyroid hormone production; it may be goitrogenic (possibly due to inhaled thiocyanate), but it may also enhance the formation of T3 at the expense of rT3 formation. Expand
The Colorado thyroid disease prevalence study.
TLDR
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. Expand
Risk for ischemic heart disease and all-cause mortality in subclinical hypothyroidism.
TLDR
The results indicate that subclinical hypothyroidism is associated with ischemic heart disease and might affect all-cause mortality in men and the influence of thyroid antibody presence is unable to detect. Expand
Subclinical Hypothyroidism Is an Independent Risk Factor for Atherosclerosis and Myocardial Infarction in Elderly Women: The Rotterdam Study
TLDR
This population-based study examined whether subclinical hypothyroidism and thyroid autoimmunity are associated with aortic atherosclerosis and myocardial infarction in elderly women who were participating in the Rotterdam Study. Expand
Clinical review 115: effect of thyroxine therapy on serum lipoproteins in patients with mild thyroid failure: a quantitative review of the literature.
TLDR
It is suggested that T4 therapy in individuals with mild thyroid failure lowers mean serum total and LDL cholesterol concentrations, and the reduction in serum total cholesterol may be larger in Individuals with higher pretreatment cholesterol levels and in hypothyroid individuals taking suboptimal T4 doses.
