Reversible alterations of peripheral nerve function in thyroid dysfunction

, : Reversible alterations of peripheral nerve function in thyroid dysfunction. Eeg-Emg Zeitschrift für Elektroenzephalographie, Elektromyographie und Verwandte Gebiete 10(2): 101-105

In 7 patients with hyperthyroidism and 9 patients with hypothyroidism both thve before treatment and after a period of normal thyroid function of at least one year duration. As far as conduction velocity and relative refractory period are concerned there was no difference between hyperthyroid patients and normal persons, whereas in cases of hypothyroidism before treatment the conduction velocity was shown to be significantly reduced; moreover a prolonged relative refractory period and a decline in amplitude of the nerve action potential were found. These alterations of peripheral nerve function, interpreted as evidence of neuropathy, proved to be reversible when the thyroid function returned to normal.

A 2-stage reaction (fast then slow) occurred when 1% beta -lactoglobulin solutions at pH 2.5 were heated at 90 deg C for 1 h. With a solvent ionic strength (IS) of 0-0.15 there was protective action against denaturation; with IS of 0.2-0.35 clear...
