Introduction: Thyroid hormones (THs) play a crucial role in growth, brain development and function and metabolic homeostasis. The sensitivity to TH indices seems to be associated with metabolic syndrome (MS), prediabetes and diabetes in adults. We evaluated the sensitivity to TH indices in a pediatric population with neuromotor disability in relationship with the MS presence, using a multivariate analysis (MVA).Patients and Metho...

Objectives: Increased central and peripheral sensitivity to thyroid hormones seems to be associated with an increased risk of developing prediabetes in adulthood. The objective of this study was to evaluate the relationship between the severity of obesity, the presence of glyco-metabolic alterations, and tissue sensitivity to thyroid hormones in prepubertal euthyroid children with simple obesity.Methods: Eighty prepubert...
