Table 1 Comparison between serum T3, T4, TSH, IL-6 and IL-10 levels in the 60 non-thyroidal illness patients and their 20 control subjects.

From: Relating circulating thyroid hormone concentrations to serum interleukins-6 and -10 in association with non-thyroidal illnesses including chronic renal insufficiency

Tested Parameters Non-thyroidal Illness (n = 60) Healthy Controls (n = 20) Significance Level (p Value)
T3 (n mol/L) 0.936 ± 0.47 1.343 ± 0.45 0.001
T4 (n mol/L) 74.90 ± 28.41 108.30 ± 14.50 <0.0001
TSH (μIU/L) 1.078 ± 0.52 1.921 ± 0.93 <0.001
IL-6 (ng/L) 105.18 ± 72.01 3.34 ± 1018 <0.0001
IL-10 (ng/L) 74.33 ± 52.99 2.64 ± 0.92 <0.00001
  1. Out of the investigated 60 patients, four showed a TSH serum level that was below the sensitivity of the used assay (0.06 μIU/L). These patients were assumed to have a TSH concentration of (0.06 μIU/L) in order to calculate the mean TSH value.
