Abstract
BACKGROUND: Despite the high prevalence of subclinical hypothyroidism in patients with chronic kidney disease, little is known about the clinical features and implications of this disorder in end-stage renal disease patients. This study aimed to investigate the clinical implications of subclinical hypothyroidism in continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD) patients. METHODS: This is a cross-sectional study with 51 stable patients who were maintained on CAPD for more than 3 months. A thyroid function test with blood sampling and echocardiography were conducted. Subclinical hypothyroidism was defined as a thyrotropin (TSH) level over 5 mIU/l and normal free T(4). RESULTS: Of the 51 patients, subclinical hypothyroidism was detected in 14 (27.5%). Among those with subclinical hypothyroidism, only 4 (28.6%) patients had autoimmune thyroiditis. Patients with subclinical hypothyroidism had lower left ventricular ejection fractions (LVEF; 61.5 vs. 70.0%, p = 0.002) and lower fractional shortening at endocardial levels (endoFS; 33.9 vs. 40.0%, p = 0.009) compared to those with normal TSH levels. In addition, logTSH was inversely associated with LVEF (r = -0.361, p = 0.009) and endoFS (r = -0.320, p = 0.022). In a multivariate linear regression, adjusted for age, diabetes, previous coronary artery disease and logCRP (C-reactive protein), logTSH was an independent correlate with LVEF (beta = -0.388, p < 0.001). CONCLUSION: This study suggests that subclinical hypothyroidism is common and might be implicated in cardiac dysfunction in CAPD patients.
