  • Epinephrine was found to increase urinary I131 (primarily as iodide) after the administration of labeled L-thyroxine, D-thyroxine and L-triiodothyronine as compared to the I131 excretion after injection of these thyronines without epinephrine. Epinephrine had no effect on the excretion of isotope after the administration of radioactive iodide. Fecal I131 from these sources was slightly lowered by epinephrine. Other thyronine derivatives were studied without epinephrine and were found to have… CONTINUE READING
