(2007)We determined the prevalence of congenital hypothyroidism and the rate of consanguinity among parents of hypothyroid neonates among 93 381 neonates born in 17 hospitals in Isfahan from May 2002 to April 2005. Serum thyroxine [T4] and thyroid stimulating hormone [TSH] levels were measured on the 3rd-7th day of birth and neonates with abnormal levels were recalled and the levels reassessed. Those with TSH </= 10 mIU/L and T4 < 6.5 micro g/dL on the second assay were considered hypothyroid. In all, 1038 neonates were recalled and 274 were diagnosed ...
Prevalence and risk factors for hypothyroidism in Jordanian women: comparison between different reference ranges Alkafajei, A.; Amarin, Z.; Alazaizeh, W.; Khader, Y.; Marji, M. (2012)The aim of this cross-sectional study in Jordan was to estimate the prevalence of hypothyroidism among women during early pregnancy and to assess the association of risk factors with hypothyroidism. According to internationally adopted thyroid stimulating hormone [TSH] and thyroxine [T4] pregnancy reference ranges [TSH >/= 2.6 mIU/L and T4 10.6-20.4 pmol/L], 67 of 322 [20.8%] women were diagnosed with sub-clinical hypothyroidism. When the general laboratory criteria were applied [TSH >/= 4.6 mIU/L and T4 < 10.6 pmol/L] the prevalence dropped to ...
