Abstract
Previous results have demonstrated a) an association with increased total IgE levels; b) high IL-5 serum levels in hyperthyroid Graves?ophthalmopathy and c) The balance shift of IL-12 to IL-5 during methimazole therapy represented a remarkable difference between patients with the presence and absence of ophthalmopathy. Other authors found an influencing effect of elevated IgE levels on the lower remission rate of Graves? hyperthyroidism through the smaller declined TRAK values. Author here argues that the presence of allergic events does not only influence the remission rate but also may play an inducing factor for thyroid autoimmunity. Allergy was studied in Graves? disease, Hashimoto?s thyroiditis and euthyroidgoiter using Allergy Screen test for 20 aeroallergens and 20 food allergens. Thyroid hormones (TSH, FT4, FT3), autoantibodies against thyroid peroxidase (anti-TPO), thyroglobulin (anti-Htg) and TSH receptor (TRAK) were measured. A high frequence of sensitized Graves? and Hashimoto?s patients was found showing age-related decrease in sensitization, even though some of these patients had no clinical signs of allergy. Sensitized Graves? patients represented a larger allergen spectrum connecting with hyperthyroidism and seasonality, as well as higher values of allergen-specific IgE levels. All plantain and mugwort sensitized patients were also TRAK positive. Soyabean-specific IgE levels demonstrated a strong connection to elevated anti- TPO levels and Graves? ophthalmopathy. Recently, data on mugwort-specific all immunoglobulin isotype levels (IgG, A, M, E) suggest their inducing role for TSH receptor antibodies via antigen mimicry in Graves? hyperthyroidism. In summary, increased aeroallergic sensitization was demonstrated in autoimmune thyroid diseases, particularly in Graves? disease, which may influence the thyroid autoimmunity.
