Relationship between clinical classification of hyperthyroidism for three grades of severity and level of triiodothyronine (T3) and thyroxine (T4) concentrations in serum



Relationship between clinical classification of hyperthyroidism for three grades of severity and level of triiodothyronine (T3) and thyroxine (T4) concentrations in serum



Endokrynologia Polska 43(3): 288-297



The aim of the study was to assess the relationship between the clinical classification of hyperthyroidism based on the 3-degree score system and T3 and T4 serum concentration. 161 patients with Graves disease or toxic goiter were studied. By comparing the number of scores separating the 3 subgroups in relation to the severity of disease with T3 and T4 serum concentration of tyreotoxic patients we found a very high statistically significant correlation. We also found the marked (by +50%) statistically significant increase in the serum T3 concentration related to the degree of hyperthyroidism severity.
