contractile apparatus of the cardiac myocyte has two subtypes of myosin heavy chains (MHCs): α-MHC and β-MHC – fast and slow myosin, respectively. T3 can upregulate α-MHC and downregulate β-MHC ( 10 ). Therefore, the myocardial hypothyroid state induces a so

started, thyroid hormone status is regularly monitored by measuring TSH and/or fT4 concentrations depending on the etiology of the thyroid disorder. To illustrate, Hashimoto’s hypothyroidism can sufficiently be monitored by measuring TSH solely and fT4 may

Introduction Central hypothyroidism (CeH) is a rare and heterogenous hypothyroid condition resulting from an insufficient stimulation of an otherwise normal thyroid gland by the hypophyseal thyrotropin hormone (TSH). This loss of central
