Thyroid function profiles correlate with post-stroke fatigue

Takeaway

  • In patients with acute ischaemic stroke (AIS), indicators of thyroid function are related to the risk of post-stroke fatigue (PSF), with higher thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) levels being associated with lower PSF risk.

Why this matters

  • PSF may negatively impact rehabilitation and long-term outcomes of patients who have had AIS.
