Table 2 Descriptive statistics for the levels of TSH, FT 4 and FT 3 before radioiodine administration and at three months after radioiodine administration (Friedman ANOVA test), Group 2, n=20; SD – standard deviation; SEM – standard error of mean; p – level of significance

From: In contrast to matrix metalloproteinases, serum adiponectin concentrations increase after radioiodine treatment of thyrotoxicosis

  1. Reference ranges: TSH - 0.4-4.0 mIU/l,
  2. FT4 - 11.5-22.7 pmol/l (1 pmol/l x 0.0777 = ng/dl),
  3. FT3 - 2.76-6.45 pmol/l (1 pmol/l x 0.6493 = pg/ml).
