Interest in the role of thyroid hormones (TH) in heart failure is steadily increasing due to evidence for a physiological, homeostatic role of TH and the effects of altered TH metabolism on the cardiovascular system, particularly in presence of heart failure.

    The activity of the thyroid gland diminishes during ageing, but a certain tissue reserve of T3 and its metabolites is maintained. This reserve is thought to play a regulatory role in energy homeostasis during ageing. This review critically assesses this notion. T3 was thought to act...

    In vertebrates, hormones released from the thyroid gland travel in the circulation to target tissues where they may be processed by deiodinating enzymes into more active or inactive iodothyronines. In mammals, there are three deiodinating enzymes described. Type1 (D1), which primarily occurs in...
