Advanced diagnostic approaches and current management of thyroid pathologies in Guinea pigs

, : Advanced diagnostic approaches and current management of thyroid pathologies in Guinea pigs. Veterinary Clinics of North America. Exotic Animal Practice 13(3): 509-523

The authors have encountered multiple clinical cases of clinical hyperthyroidism in the guinea pig, which responded positively to clinical treatment. Hyperactive thyroids in the guinea pig appear to exist causing typical clinical signs. An early accurate diagnosis of this pathologic state is important in the clinical setting. One of the authors has encountered a few clinical cases of hypothyroidism in guinea pigs. Hypothyroidism appears to be a rare condition and has been described anecdotally in the German literature. Because of the rarity of hypothyroidism, the text focuses mainly on the guinea pig as a hyperthyroid case. A short description of the clinical presentation of the hypothyroid animal is included at the end of the text.

Altered expression of the facilitated glucose transporter GLUT1 affects pathways implicated in the pathogenesis of diabetic nephropathy. There is indication that variation of GLUT1 gene (SLC2A1) contributes to development of microangiopathy in dia...
