Cardiovascular system and metabolic effects of thyroid disease


The European Thyroid Journal (ETJ) publishes papers reporting original research in basic, translational and clinical thyroidology. The journal is fully open access, ensuring the highest impact for authors publishing in ETJ.

The journal recognises the importance of studies on the cardiovascular system and metabolic effects of thyroid disease and have collated a collection of high impact papers in the field to share.


Comments from Editor-in-Chief Professor Simon Pearce – University of Newcastle

"The impact of thyroid disorders on cardiac function and metabolic syndrome is often recognised by clinicians during day to day practice. I am delighted to share with you the recent cutting edge papers from European Thyroid Journal concerning this important topic. I hope you enjoy this topic collection, which spans the translational science of thyroid hormone action at the tissue level, as well as epidemiological and clinical studies of pathophysiology."
