Abstract

Low thyroid hormone (TH) levels and myocardial damage are common in dialysis patients and are associated with mortality. However, little is known about the role of THs on myocardial damage as has been described in primary thyroid diseases. The aim of this study was to explore the potential relationship between low total triiodothyronine (total T3) and biomarkers of myocardial damage and the effect of their interaction on mortality, to ascertain if cardiovascular damage is the link between low THs and the risk of death in dialysis patients with CKD. TH plasma levels, nutritional markers, inflammation and myocardial damage were studied in 296 patients undergoing peritoneal dialysis or haemodialysis, who were followed up for 16 months to ascertain the association between biochemical variables and mortality. Low total T3 levels were found in 45% of patients, which was inversely correlated with C-reactive protein (CRP) and NT-proBNP, and directly correlated with albumin and transferrin. Diabetes, CRP and total T3 were risk factors for all-cause mortality, and CRP, NT-proBNP and total T3 for cardiovascular mortality. Low total T3 levels are common in dialysis patients and are associated with inflammation, malnutrition and myocardial damage. The latter may be the link between low THs and all-cause and cardiovascular mortality.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 05 March 2018.
All research outputs
#10,079,267
of 12,600,122 outputs
Outputs from Nefrología (Madrid)
#108
of 213 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#203,521
of 271,861 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Nefrología (Madrid)
#2
of 5 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 12,600,122 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 11th percentile – i.e., 11% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 213 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 1.7. This one is in the 28th percentile – i.e., 28% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 271,861 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 13th percentile – i.e., 13% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 5 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has scored higher than 3 of them.
