Marco Campinho, principal researcher of the Algarve Biomedical Center-Research Institute (ABC-RI), from University of Algarve, has announced the publication as editor of a new book exploring the connection between Covid-19 and the thyroid. This comprehensive guideline delves into the latest research and provide new data on thyroid involvement in SARS-CoV-2 infection.
This ebook offers a timely and crucial resource for understanding this complex interaction, from the triggering pathophysiological mechanisms to the clinical outcomes and its proper management.
Should we screen thyroid dysfunction during Covid-19? Is Covid-19 more frequent or are its consequences larger in patients with thyroid dysfunctions? Can Covid-19 induce thyroid dysfunctions or thyroid autoimmunity? Can pre-existing thyroid disease or low T3 syndrome affect the Covid-19 prognosis? Does levothyroxine dose need to be checked or adjusted after Covid-19? Can Covid-19 vaccines affect thyroid function? What would be the best clinical management for an affected patient?
These are some of the questions the editor seeks to answer throughout the publication.
