Title:
Coronary vasoreactivity in subjects with thyroid autoimmunity and subclinical hypothyroidism before and after supplementation with thyroxine. 
Abstract:
The association of subclinical hypothyroidism (SCH) with increased risk for cardiovascular disease is still controversial. This study aimed to examine coronary vascular reactivity by positron emission tomography (PET) in asymptomatic patients with SCH before and after levothyroxine (LT4) supplementation.Ten patients (7 women and 3 men; mean age 43±15 years) with untreated autoimmune SCH, defined by elevated levels of thyroid-stimulating hormone (mean TSH: 16.9±11.3 ?U/mL), normal levels of free...    »
