Influence of certain components of metabolic syndrome on renal function in hypothyroidism (literature review)

O.M. Didushko


The article deals with the influence of certain components of the metabolic syndrome, such as arterial hypertension, obesity and dyslipidemia, on renal function in hypothyroidism, causal relationship between these components and hypothyroidism and renal dysfunction. It has been shown that arterial hypertension, abdominal obesity, hyperleptinemia and dyslipidemia are independent risk factors for renal dysfunction in hypothyroidism.
