Effect of diabetic control on the level of circulating thyroid hormones.

Abstract
Basal plasma levels of thyroxine (T4), triiodothyronine (T3) and reverse T3 were determined by radioimmunoassay in 44 control subjects, 44 Type 1 (insulin-dependent) and 39 Type 2 (non insulin-dependent) diabetic patients aged from 15 to 75 years. All were clinically euthyroid. The quality of diabetic control was assessed by the percentage of glycosylated haemoglobin. In both the diabetic groups there was a significant decrease in T3 and a rise in reverse T3 whereas T4 was normal. We found no significant differences between plasma thyroid hormone levels in Type 1 and Type 2 diabetic patients. In the poorly controlled diabetics (glycosylated haemoglobin greater than or equal to 12%), T3 was 90 +/- 5 ng/dl, which differed significantly from the level found in the better controlled patients (106 +/- 5 ng/dl, p less than 0.01). In the diabetic patients without associated illness, a negative linear correlation was found between T3 and glycosylated haemoglobin and a positive correlation between reverse T3/T3 and glycosylated haemoglobin. No correlation between T3 or reverse T3 and fasting blood glucose could be established. In conclusion, many diabetics showed a low T3 syndrome suggesting that there may be an impairment in the extrathyroidal conversion of T4 to T3. This may well be enhanced by a poor diabetic control (glycosylated haemoglobin greater than or equal to 12%).
