Trh test in subclinical thyroid disease


Bollettino Societa Italiana Biologia Sperimentale 58(11): 663-665
Trh test in subclinical thyroid disease
The TRH test is a useful tool for diagnostic purposes in thyroid disease. Four groups of patients (non toxic diffuse goiter, nodular goiter (Plummer's disease), euthyroid ophthalmic Graves' disease and hemithyroidectomy) who showed no symptoms and presented normal values of total thyroid hormones, in comparison with a control group were challenged with TRH. These groups displayed normal and pathological (blunted or absent and exaggerated) responses of TSH to TRH. The TRH-test represents a good way to recognize subclinical forms of both hyperthyroidism and hypothyroidism.
