Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Globally, type 2 diabetes, obesity, and thyroid disorders are three of the most prevalent endocrinological and metabolic clinical problems, reaching epidemic proportions.

Regardless of whether they occur separately or coexist and comprise an unfavorable set of clinical disorders, they pose a threat to progress in human population health and life expectancy, which have been progressing for the last century.

This Special Issue aims to publish significant findings in the field of clinical studies on type 2 diabetes, obesity, and thyroid disorders.

The complexity of the processes underlying these disorders, further aggravated by the complicated correlation between them, is why we would not like to narrow our scope and aims.

These clinical problems cover a broad range of research fields, from genetic and molecular research through to clinical research and clinical care, as well as some of the most crucial public health issues. We also invite researchers to publish reviews based on their own professional experience and published literature. We especially encourage submissions of papers presenting new findings that substantially widen the current knowledge and can be directly introduced into clinical practice.

Thus, this Special Issue will readily welcome every outstanding contribution in the field of type 2 diabetes, obesity, and thyroid disorders.

Best regards,

Dr. Zbigniew Adamczewski

Background: Diagnostics of thyroid disorders (TD) are frequently based on the measurements of thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) concentration only. If TSH is outside the reference range, the diagnostic procedure used in patients with TD isintroduced. Observations indicate that in a considerable number of these patients, TD is not confirmed. The aim of the study was to assess the incidence of transient hyperthyrotropinemia in healthy children during acute infections of the respiratory system. Patients and Methods: The study included consecutive children (49 boys and 45 girls), aged 2.2–17.3 years, who visited one General Practitioner (GP) due to respiratory tract infections. The tests: complete blood count (CBC), C-reactive protein (CRP), TSH and FT4 were run on the next day after the visit at the physician’s (initial visit) and ≥2 weeks after recovery. Results: Among these children, elevated TSH values were found in about 10% of patients, and they went back to normal values after recovery. A prospective analysis showed a reduction of TSH values in approx. 65% of all groups and TSH at the follow-up visit was significantly lower. Conclusions: Transient hyperthyrotropinemia was observed in about 10% of children with acute respiratory tract infection. This preliminary finding remains unexplained. Full article
