Review on hyperemesis gravidarum.

Hyperemesis Gravidarum is a Syndrome of Metabolic and Endocrine Disturbances: A Case Description

The management of one case riddled with multiple metabolic events of hyperemesis gravidarum, a clinical syndrome characterized by excess vomiting, dehydration and weight loss associated high human chorionic gonadotropin levels, is described.

Hyperemesis gravidarum: current concepts and management

A general outline of the hyperemesis gravidarum, its relation to the gastrointestinal system and thyroid, mild and rare severe complications, and conventional treatment versus newer options are discussed.

Severe Hyperemesis Gravidarum Masking the Presentations of Hyperthyroidism

Goiter and refractory tachycardia are the useful clues to detect occult hyperthyroidism in patients with hyperemesis gravidarum.

Thyroid Function and Serum Free BHCG Levels in Hyperemesis Gravidarum

This study investigated the relationship between beta human chorionic gonadotrophin (BHCG) and throyid function with HG among pregnant women admitted to Sari Imam Khomeini Hospital.

Hyperemesis gravidarum can be a risk factor for postpartum thyroid dysfunction and thyroid antibodies must be checked in the hyperemesis population in an endemic goitre region and/or iodine replacement regions.

The clinical management, including the indications for the use of thioamide or antithyroid medications, will be discussed in the context of pregnancy, and considerations for the management of the postpartum and/or breastfeeding patient with hyperthyroidism will be reviewed.

Transient hyperthyroidism and hyperemesis gravidarum: clinical aspects.

Increased concentration of the free β‐subunit of human chorionic gonadotropin in hyperemesis gravidarum

Sera from singleton gestations with hyperemesis gravidarum contained a higher proportion of free β hCG compared to controls of comparable gestational age, as well as other conditions associated with high total hCG.

Hyperemesis Gravidarum and the Sex of the Offspring

Findings provide evidence that pregnant women with a diagnosis of hyperemesis gravidarum in the first trimester give birth to a higher proportion of female newborns than do all mothers, regardless of whether they are hospitalized.

Familial gestational hyperthyroidism caused by a mutant thyrotropin receptor hypersensitive to human chorionic gonadotropin.

Some degree of stimulation of the thyroid gland by human chorionic gonadotropin is common during early pregnancy, but overt hyperthyroidism may ensue when serum chorionics concentrations are abnormally high.

Severity of hyperemesis gravidarum correlates with serum levels of reverse T3

The data are consistent with a shift from T3 to rT3 as products of 5′-monodeiodination of thyroxine in hyperemesis gravidarum, and a control mechanism may be postulated wherein T3 production is minimized, thereby reducing weight loss and lipolysis in patients with hyperemetic women.

Thyrotropic action of human chorionic gonadotropin.

The clinical significance of the thyrotropic action of hCG is now also recognized in normal pregnancy and hyperemesis gravidarum, and the severity of vomiting as indicated by clinical and biochemical parameters correlated with the degree of thyroid stimulation.
