The effect of starvation and refeeding with oral versus intravenous glucose on serum 3,5-,3,3'-and 3'-5'-diiodothyronine and 3'-monoiodothyronine.

The effect of complete fasting on the serum concentrations of the iodothyronines 3,5-diiodothyronine (3,5-T2), 3,3'T2, 3', 5'-T2 and 3'-monoiodothyronine (3'-T1) was evaluated. Fourteen obese women underwent a complete fasting for 4 days. Caloric restriction resulted in the following serum hormone levels (before vs 3. day): T4: 103 vs 109 nmol/l (NS), T3: 1… CONTINUE READING
