Esposito Received: 8 August 2017 / Accepted: 20 August 2017 / Published online: 30 August 2017 © Italian Society of Endocrinology (SIE) 2017 Abstract correlation was observed between TSH levels and glycemic Purpose A relationship between thyroid dysfunction and values (r = −0.27; p = 0.01), CONGA index (r = −0.35; diabetes mellitus has been described by several authors but p = 0.001) and HBGI (r = −0.28; p = 0.01) but not with the role of glycemic variability is still unclear. We planned HbA1c (r = −0.1; p = 0.47). the present study to evaluate the influence of glycemic Conclusions Our results suggest a direct action of glyce- variability on thyroid hormones and TSH concentrations in mic excursions on TSH secretion, regardless of variations patients with type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM). of thyroid hormone concentrations. Thus, the evaluation of Methods Seventy-seven young patients with T1DM were thyroid function through the assay of TSH concentrations in enrolled and evaluated for basal glucose concentrations, these patients should be made, if
