Objectives: The aim of the present study was to investigate the effect of iron deficiency anemia and iron treat ment on the thyroid functions. Materials and methods: In this study, 42 patients and 38 healthy individuals were studied. Iron deficiency ane mia was diagnosed by measurement of serum ferritin and complete blood counts. Free Triiodothyronine (FT3), free thyroxine (FT4), total triiodothyronine, total thyroxine, thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) and cortisol levels were measured in…

Factors associated with anemia among Sri Lankan primary school children in rural North Central Province
Anemia among rural primary school children in NCP cannot be well explained by routinely assessed socioeconomic characteristics which mainly provide clues to access for food, and behavioral factors have been shown to affect nutrition of younger children in Sri Lanka.


Incidence of sideropenia and effects of iron repletion treatment in women with subclinical hypothyroidism.
The results suggest that sideropenia is a common finding in patients with slightly decreased thyroid activity, and that determination of Frt should be routinely advised.
[Serum free thyroid hormones and response of TSH to TRH in nonthyroidal illnesses].
Low concentrations of serum free T3 observed in the majority of the patients with severe NTI were, at least in part, due to the decrease in the peripheral conversion of T4 to T3 and the lowered sensitivity of the anterior pituitary to thyroid hormones and TRH.
Thyroxine therapy in patients with severe nonthyroidal illnesses and low serum thyroxine concentration.
T4 therapy was not beneficial in this population of intensive care unit patients, and by inhibiting TSH secretion, it may suppress an important mechanism for normalization of thyroid function during recovery.
Iron deficiency anemia reduces thyroid peroxidase activity in rats.
Investigation of whether iron (Fe) deficiency lowers thyroid peroxidase (TPO) activity in male weanling Sprague-Dawley rats indicates that Fe deficiency sharply reduces TPO activity and suggests that decreased T PO activity contributes to the adverse effects of IDA on thyroid metabolism.
Serum total thyroxine, total triiodothyronine, free thyroxine, and thyrotropin concentrations in dogs with nonthyroidal disease.
Results indicate that serum total T 4, free T4, and total T3 concentrations may be low (ie, in the hypothyroid range) in dogs with moderate to severe nonthyroidal disease, and serum TSH concentrations are more likely to remain within the reference range in sick dogs.
Evidence for thyroid hormone deficiency in iron-deficient anemic rats.
It is proposed that this abnormal thyroid state is partially responsible for impaired thermogenesis in iron-deficiency anemia and the dampened TSH responses to TRH further facilitate or perpetuate this T3 deficiency.
Relationship between thyrotropin and thyroxine changes during recovery from severe hypothyroxinemia of critical illness.
The very close and consistent temporal relationship between TSH and T4 during the recovery phase suggests that TSH may have an essential role in the return of T4 to normal during recovery from critical nonthyroidal illness.
Impaired thermoregulation and thyroid function in iron-deficiency anemia.
A functional consequence of iron-deficiency anemia in the balance of heat production and loss is demonstrated and it is suggested that thyroid-hormone metabolism may be responsible.
The sick euthyroid syndrome: changes in thyroid hormone serum parameters and hormone metabolism
In practice, the clinician must differentiate the changes in the serum thyroid hormone lcvels induced by illness from those caused by treatable disorders of thyroid function.
