Background: The polyethylene glycol (PEG) method, which utilizes the addition of PEG to precipitate immunoglobulin fractions in order to measure free thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH), has been implemented as a tool for investigating incongruities in TSH measurement.Aim of the study: To investigate the practical application of PEG-TSH testing in pediatric scenarios with a discrepancy between elevated TSH and normal free ...

Background: We previously reported on the strong predictive value of the muscle-to-fat ratio (MFR) z-score in the development of early-onset metabolic syndrome components in children with overweight/obesity. Data on the role of the balance between muscle and fat in the development of childhood onset nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) are sparse. In the current study we explored the interplay between MFR and surrogate markers of NAFLD in children with ove...
