Stroke risk increases with low-normal TSH levels

September 28, 2016

Patients with thyroid-stimulating hormone levels within the upper limit of the reference range have a lower risk for stroke compared with those whose levels are nearer the lower limit, according to recently published findings.

Robin P. Peeters, MD, PhD, of the Rotterdam Thyroid Center, department of internal medicine, department of epidemiology at Erasmus University Medical Center in the Netherlands, and colleagues collected individual participant data from 17 studies identified through a systematic literature search and the Thyroid Studies Collaboration on 43,598 adults with TSH levels within the 0.45 mIU/L to 4.49 mIU/L reference range. Follow-up was a median of 11.6 years and included 449,908 person-years.
