[Full text] Cognitive Impairment factors in Hypothyroid Patients http://pilatesbodys.com/full-text-cognitive-impairment-factors-in-hypothyroid-patients/ Mon, 12 Apr 2021 12:00:26 +0000 http://pilatesbodys.com/?p=1199

Introduction

Hypothyroidism or underactive thyroid is a failure of the thyroid gland to produce enough thyroid hormone to meet the metabolic demands of the body. It may occur as a result of primary gland failure or insufficient thyroid gland stimulation by the hypothalamus and anterior pituitary gland.1

Cognitive impairment is one of the common complications that occur among patients with hypothyroidism.2 It is a condition in which a person has suffered in recalling, learning new things, concentrating, and making decisions that affect his/her everyday life.3 When cognitive impairment occurs it can affect a range of cognitive domains including attention, concentration, language, memory, psychomotor and executive functions.4

There are different causes for cognitive impairment such as genetic factors, exposure to toxic substances, head injury, chronic illnesses, malnutrition, and other lifestyle factors like smoking, chat chewing, and alcoholism. From those wide ranges of causes, hypothyroidism is one of the diseases of the thyroid gland that can cause cognitive impairment.5 Hypothyroidism prevents the brain from adequately sustaining the energy (glucose) needed for neurotransmission, memory, and other higher brain functions and it also causes biochemical and biophysical changes in the hippocampus which is important for cognition.6

Even though there is no global data on to what extent cognitive impairment affects patients with hypothyroidism, there are pieces of evidence across different parts of the world that claimed cognitive impairment is a common problem among these patients. For instance, cognitive impairment affected about 17%, 28%, and 32% of hypothyroid patients in Minnesota, Los Angeles, and India respectively.7–9

Cognitive impairment affects an individual’s functional ability especially instrumental activities of daily life (IADL), such as the use of the telephone, transportation, management of their medications, and money.10 People with cognitive impairment use their senses (sight, hearing, and touch) as a compensatory mechanism for declining cognition. It is reported that they use these strategies to gain a sense of control over their lives rather than to be as effective as before.11 Sensory processing refers to the ability to register and modulate sensory information and to organize this sensory input to respond to situational demand.12,13 Patients with major depressive disorder (MDD) also experienced cognitive deficits, such as visual and verbal memory, working memory, attention, executive function, and processing speed,14 but the most significant impairment is appreciated in executive function.15,16 A defect in cognitive control, which refers to the ability to regulate one’s thoughts and actions to achieve internal goals, has been associated with depression-related complications including suicidality.17,18

Above all low thyroid hormone levels have increased risk of occurrence of dementia commonly among aged females unless the hormone level is corrected early.19

Even though there are no population-based studies to assess the prevalence of hypothyroidism some institution-based studies revealed that hypothyroid disorder is high in Ethiopia.20,21 Despite, hypothyroidism is prevalent and one of the endocrine disorders that can lead to cognitive impairment, there is a paucity of data regarding the prevalence of cognitive impairment and factors associated with it among adult patients with Hypothyroidism. Therefore, this study aimed to assess the prevalence of cognitive impairment and associated factors among adult hypothyroid patients.

Methods and Materials

Study Area and Period

An institution-based cross-sectional study was employed at Amhara Regional State selected Referral Hospitals from February 24 to May 22, 2020, to assess the prevalence of cognitive impairment and associated factors among adult hypothyroid patients. The selected referral hospitals were the University of Gondar Specialized and Comprehensive, Felege Hiwot, and Debre Markos referral hospitals.

Criteria for Inclusion and Exclusion

All already diagnosed adult hypothyroid patients who are on appropriate levothyroxine replacement therapy were included in the study.

Patients who had a history of seizure, epilepsy, stroke, critically ill, had a hearing problem and had known severe psychiatric illness (schizophrenia, major depressive disorder (MDD), bipolar disorders, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), and dementia were excluded.

Sample Size Determination and Sampling Technique

The actual sample size was determined by using the single population proportion formula. Since there was no similar study conducted in Ethiopia, the following assumptions have been made: 95% confidence interval (Zα/2 = 1.96), 50% proportion, and 5% margin of error.

, where Z statistics (at 95% CI=1.96), p (population proportion), and d (margin of error)

However, based on the six hospitals’ monthly report of hypothyroid cases, the total number of patients who could present during the data collection period was 460 which was< 10,000. Hence we had used a population correction formula to determine our final sample size.

Population correction formula,

Where:

  • nf = final sample size
  • n = sample size before population correction
  • N = total number of patients who could be presented

Finally, we had added a 5% non-response rate which made our final sample size 219.

A single-stage cluster sampling technique was employed to recruit the study participants. In the first step, six referral hospitals found in Amhara Regional State (University of Gondar Comprehensive and Specialized Referral Hospital (UOGCSH), Felege Hiwot Referral Hospital (FHRH), Debre Markos Referral Hospital (DMRH), Tibebe Gion Referral Hospital (TGRH), Dessie Referral Hospital (DRH), and Debre Berhan Referral Hospital (DBRH) were considered as a cluster and three of them (University of Gondar Comprehensive Specialized Referral Hospital (UOGCSH), Felege Hiwot Referral Hospital (FHRH) and Debre Markos Referral Hospital (DMRH)) were selected on a random basis. Following that, we included all patients who had to follow up at the outpatient department (OPD) and those who were receiving inpatient services on the selected referral hospitals.

Study Variables

Dependent Variable

Cognitive impairment

Independent Variables

Socio-demographic variables (including age, sex, marital status, educational status, and job status), comorbid medical conditions (including hypertension, cardiovascular diseases, diabetes mellitus, and chronic kidney disease), behavioral factors like khat chewing, alcohol drinking, and cigarette smoking, thyroid function tests (TSH, T4 & T3 levels) and duration of illness.

Operational Definition

Hypothyroidism

Serum TSH level > 4.5 mIU/L, FT4 < 10.3 pmol/I or FT3 < 2.3 pmol/diagnosed as hypothyroid and were included in the study.20,22

Data Collection Tools and Procedures

Data was collected by a pretested interviewer-administered structured questionnaire and SMMSE tool. The questionnaire was prepared by the investigator after reviewing different pieces of literature.7–9,23,24 The recent TSH and thyroid hormone levels were taken from the patient’s medical chart. Cognitive impairment was assessed through a face to face interviews by using the SMMSE tool used by other studies conducted in Ethiopia among type 2 diabetic patients.25 The SMMSE has five components including orientation, registration, attention, and calculation, recall and language each having 10, 3, 5, 3, and 9 items respectively.26 For participants who cannot read and write, the last three items measuring the language component of SMMSE were excluded since they require writing or reading skills.27 Participants who had SMMSE score below 22 with no or primary level education, less than 24 for those with secondary level education, and less than 25 for those with diploma and above educational status were diagnosed to have cognitive impairment.25

The data collectors used hand sanitizers, gloves, and face masks throughout the data collection process following the introduction of the coronavirus pandemic. In addition to this, the face-to-face interview was done by keeping the recommended distance (2 meters) to prevent coronavirus transmission. Moreover, each participant was asked for the symptoms of the coronavirus infection by the data collectors before starting any data collection in addition to the screening service given by the hospitals.

Data Quality Assurance

Initially, the questionnaire was developed in English by the investigator then forward and backward translation was done by Amharic and English versed personals to keep its consistency. Necessary amendments were made to the questionnaire based on the translation. A one-day training was given to both the data collectors and supervisors by the principal investigator about the purpose of the study, data collection procedures, and ethical issues during data collection.

A pretest was done at Tibebe Gion Referral hospital among 12 hypothyroid patients (5% of the total sample size) for the assessment of the questionnaire clarity and sociocultural compatibility. Moreover, cognitive impairment was assessed by using a commonly used screening tool (SMMSE) with sensitivity and specificity of 84.1% and 73% respectively.28 In addition to this, the reliability of the instrument was established based on the internal consistency reliability assessment using Cronbach alpha (α = 0.84).29

Data Processing and Analysis

The collected data were checked for completeness, accuracy, and clarity before analysis. The data were entered into Epidata 4.6 and transferred to SPSS version 25 for analysis. Descriptive statistics, frequencies, and proportions were computed. The total score of the SMMSE was used to screen cognitive impairment. Bivariable binary logistic regression analysis was employed to identify factors that are candidates for multivariable analysis at a p-value of less than 0.2. Multivariable binary logistic regression analysis was done to declare the presence of statistical significance. Model fitness was checked with the Hosmer and Lemeshow goodness of fit test and it was 0.1. Furthermore, multicollinearity between the explanatory factors was assessed with the variance inflation factor (VIF) to identify and avoid redundant variables that may affect our estimate. The VIF was in the acceptable range (1–4). Indeed, a p-value < 0.05 and a 95% confidence interval was used to determine statistical significance.

Results

A total of 216 hypothyroid patients were included in the study with a response rate of 98.6%. The mean age of the participants was 42.5 (± 11) years with an age range of 18–72 years. The majority (73.1%) of the participants were females. (Table 1).

Table 1 Sociodemographic Characteristics of Adult Hypothyroid Patients Who Attend Amhara Regional State Referral Hospitals, Amhara Ethiopia 2020 (n=216)

Clinical Characteristics and Substance Use History of the Participants

Of the total respondents, 13 (6%) of them had known comorbid illness. Specifically, 5 (2.3%) of them were hypertensive, 4 (1.9%) had heart disease and 4 (1.9%) of them had other comorbidities (gastritis, asthma). The mean duration of the illness (hypothyroidism) was 4.5 (± 2.6) years and ranges from 1–13 years. The mean TSH level among them was 6.98 ± 6.8 (mIU/L).

Regarding substance usage, more than half (53.7%) of the study participants had a lifetime history of alcohol intake. Of those who had a lifetime alcohol history, 65 (56%) of them had a history of alcohol intake history in the last one month. All most of them (98%) were used to drink local beverages, tella, or areki. Indeed, only 9 (4.2%) and 1 (0.5%) of the study participants had ever Khat chewing and ever smoking history, respectively (Table 2).

Table 2 Clinical Characteristics and Substance Use History of Adult Hypothyroid Patients Who Attended Amhara Regional State Referral Hospitals, Amhara, Ethiopia, 2020 (n=216)

We have recorded the frequency and amount of alcohol that the patients took but are difficult to state because most of the participants took local beverages and they are unable to recall the amount and the frequency of alcohol since they drink occasionally.

Alcohol abuse was assessed by masking symptoms of alcohol abuse such as drinking to relax, problems with family and friends because of drinking, neglecting their responsibilities because of drinking, and whether they were experiencing legal problems because of alcohol drinking) but there was no participant with such experiences.

Prevalence of Cognitive Impairment

Based on the adjusted SMMSE score the prevalence of cognitive impairment was 27.3% (95% CI (21.7, 33.8)). The prevalence of cognitive impairment was higher among females 50 (31.6%) and among participants from rural areas 44 (30.3%) as compared to their counterparts. Moreover, the prevalence of cognitive impairment was found to be higher among participants having an educational level of grade 8th and lower, 54 (30%) than participants having secondary and above educational status. The mean TSH level of participants with cognitive impairment was 9.5 (± 12.4) mIU/L and it was higher than participants with normal cognitive function.

Factors Associated with Cognitive Impairment

In the bivariable logistic regression analysis, independent variables with p- the value of less than 0.2 were passed to be included in the multivariable logistic regression analysis. Those variables were age, sex, marital status, residence, educational status, monthly income, duration of the illness, and TSH level. The output of the multivariable logistic regression analysis showed that age (AOR = 1.23, 95% CI (1.11, 1.34)), duration of illness (AOR = 1.48, 95% CI (1.14, 1.9)), and TSH level (AOR = 1.3, 95% CI (1.1, 1.6)) of the participants were significantly associated with hypothyroid associated cognitive impairment. A unit increase in age of the participant increases the odds of having cognitive impairment by 23% and as the duration of illness (hypothyroidism) increases the odds of having cognitive impairment among the participants was increased by 48%. Finally, a unit increase in the TSH level of the participants increases the odds of having cognitive impairment by 30% (Table 3).

Discussion

This study assessed the prevalence of cognitive impairment and associated factors among adult hypothyroid patients in Amhara regional state selected referral hospitals.

In the present study, the prevalence of cognitive impairment among adult hypothyroid patients was 27.3% (95% CI (21.7, 33.8), and it was significantly associated with increased age, increased duration of illness, and high thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) level.

This result is in harmony with the study done in India (32.2%)9 and Los Angeles (28%).8 On the other hand, the result of the present study is higher than that of the study conducted in Minnesota (17%).7 The discrepancy may be elucidated by differences in sociodemographic characteristics of the participants which are educational level. Higher educational levels among Minnesota participants might be associated with health literacy that increases the degree to which individuals can obtain, process, and understand basic health information and services needed to make appropriate health decisions.30 In addition to the above, the discrepancy may be due to the use of different assessment techniques. The study conducted in Minnesota use extensive psychometric tests involved 9 cognitive tests (Logical Memory–II (delayed recall) and Visual Reproduction–II (delayed recall) from the Wechsler Memory Scale-Revised and the Auditory Verbal Learning Test for memory domains, Trail Making Test B, and Digit Symbol Substitution from Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale-Revised for executive function; Boston Naming Test and Category Fluency Test for language; and Picture Completion and Block Design from the Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale-Revised for visuospatial skills) and age-adjusted scaled scores in each domain were summed to obtain the domains score, and impairment in a domain was determined by comparing the scores with the mean (SD) of the population norm since the study assesses each domain in-depth it may decrease overestimation of cognitive impairment.7 Indeed it may decrease the prevalence of cognitive impairment among hypothyroid patients in Minnesota.

In the current study, cognitive impairment among adult hypothyroid patients was significantly associated with increased age, which is supported by a study conducted in Los Angeles.8 This increased prevalence of cognitive impairment with an increase in age could be due to aging-induced changes in T4 transport into the brain areas that are important for cognitive function, altered brain conversion of T4 into T3, decreased brain thyroid receptor number or affinity. Decreased T4 and T3 levels might be associated with a decreased metabolic activity that consequently decreases the brain glucose-consuming process needed for neurotransmission, memory, and other higher brain functions involved in cognitive function.23 Naturally, the distribution of nuclear T3 receptors varies with the region and the cell types, and the highest concentration is found in the amygdala, hippocampus, and cortex. Hence the higher functions of the brain including cognition are dependent on the amount of these receptors in the neurons of the aforementioned areas of the Central Nervous System (CNS).31 Indeed the decrement of thyroid receptors among aged hypothyroid patients can increase the prevalence of cognitive impairment. Additionally, it may be due to age-related changes in the structure and function of synapses and changes in neuronal networks involved in higher brain functions including cognition.32 In fact, in advanced age, the cognitive capabilities of individuals also drop in a very impressive manner and make neuronal functions defective in processing and integrations of information.33

Longer duration of illness was another independent factor that was significantly associated with cognitive impairment among hypothyroid patients in the present study. This finding is supported by a study conducted in Canada.23 As the duration of thyroid hormone deficiency becomes longer it can cause severe damage in brain areas that had a significant role in cognitive functions, as a result, it might be accompanied by increased cognitive impairment.34 Furthermore, in the present study cognitive impairment among hypothyroid patients was significantly associated with increased TSH level. Which is supported by studies conducted in India,9 and in the united kingdom.35

Limitation of the Study

It may not possible to establish causal relationships because of the cross-sectional nature of the study. In addition to this, undiagnosed mental illnesses might have affected the performance of the study subjects on the SMMSE items, and then on the overall score. Moreover, the tool (SMMSE) used to assess cognitive impairment was not validated for the study population. Hence, the measurement results may over or underestimated the outcome of interest despite this the reliability of the instrument was in the acceptable range.

Strength of the Study

In the presence of the aforesaid limitations, the present study addresses the overlooked issue in hypothyroid patients and it could be consumed by successive researchers as preliminary information on the area of interest.

Conclusion

The prevalence of cognitive impairment among adult hypothyroid patients was high. Increased age, increased duration of illness and high TSH level were factors that were associated with cognitive impairment. Hence, early screening of cognitive impairment among hypothyroid patients with increased age, increased duration of illness and high TSH level should be given due emphasis to increase patients quality of life and to decrease economic burden on individuals, family, and country level. Moreover, early screening can decrease the progression of mild cognitive impairment to dementia by giving appropriate replacement therapy.

Recommendation

Periodic screening of cognitive functions among hypothyroid patients with increased age increased duration of illness, and high TSH levels to prevent further complications should be given due emphasis.

Longitudinal studies are good to assess causality and decrease errors made in the documentation of TSH and thyroid hormone levels.

After realizing that the prices wouldn’t work within the Philippines, Energant set its sights on the Chinese language market, the place the federal government is supporting the event of those applicable applied sciences.

In Tune to track it stands on a special shore, interacting with world-famous musical acts, from Lykke Li to Iggy Pop, of their pure habitats – competition levels and grounds.

Outdoors of the latest South by Southwest film premiere, Fassbender received the cellphone with Filmmaker for a short dialogue of diving into the fiercely unique visible poetry of Terrence Malick.

Michael Fassbender as a cook dinner in Tune to track, his first collaboration with Terrence Malick

Carlos Aguilar, Filmmaker Charger (MM): Terrence Malick is understood for his unconventional directing type. How is the method of working with him totally different from what you undergo as an actor on a studio undertaking like Alien: Covenant?

Michael Fassbender (MF): I assume it is totally different from all structural movies, not simply the large funds scale or the hit mildew. He has his personal approach, and it is a approach that does not contain a whole lot of repetition, so it includes little or no continuity. They’re in a method the staples of most of his works.

MM: Is there a method for an actor to organize to be in a Malick film? Or does not preparation matter, given the best way he makes his movies?

There’s at all times a particular contact when Terry places on [a film] collectively. It has been seven weeks of incessant filming: you’re taking a half-hour lunch break, then it is take after take, otherwise you do voiceover. It is a very intense expertise, so it’s totally attention-grabbing to see it in a modified kind.

MM: What had been a few of the highlights for you in reaching Tune to track?

MF: Simply the best way [Malick] method issues. He’s a really distinctive artist. He’s undoubtedly a poet, and in addition a terrific human being. There’s additionally the chemistry on set, and the way it permits you to actually discover the scene with out a whole lot of notes, just a few persuasion. Highlights would even be merely being in and amongst Austin in the course of the competition. [the film shot scenes at both SXSW and Austin City Limits].

MF: I feel it is a very troublesome enterprise – particularly these days, when it comes to asking for fulfillment instantly after which persevering with to achieve success, whereas earlier than you had the chance to have three albums earlier than. that you just actually needed to ship financially. The touring aspect of a band must be very exhausting. The hours are lengthy, however there’s a very shut household inside it, which could be very evident. Music is one thing which is a common language. You need not translate music. Arithmetic and music are the 2 common languages. Having actual legends from the music world be a part of the movie, working with them, it was an actual deal with.

MM: track to track has a number of scenes in Mexico, and people scenes particularly give the impression of blending actuality with the characters within the fictional story.

MF: All of us cherished going to and filming Yucatan. I feel it was simply two days. As Terry stated, it was to discover a purer and simpler lifestyle. There’s a lot to tug the characters in all instructions after they’re in Austin, however then they arrive all the way down to Mexico and discover some form of concord. We cherished filming there; it was unbelievable.

MM: Does filming in the true world make the method extra complicated for an actor?

MF: It actually provides one thing to it. There’s one other aspect. I assume being able to be pretty free in a public surroundings is an added angle within the shoot that Terry put us into.

MM: One other aspect that appears to be vital in Malick’s movies is the aspect of damaged brotherhood, and I really feel like there’s one thing like that between your character and the character of Ryan Gosling, BV.

MF: Yeah, I feel there have been hints to that after we had been filming: the concept of ​​a bodily a part of the connection. Terry was like, “I need some brutality.” And there is a nice form of connection between them at one level, after which there’s absolute friction, and in some methods, violence.
