    Author(s): Abdel-Gayoum AAAbdel-Gayoum AA

    The overt and subclinical hypothyroidism is more prevalent in patients with diabetes mellitus than in general population. Recently, more studies have been warranted to elucidate the relationship between thyroid hormones disorders and the insulin activity. The present study aims to investigate the correlations between the thyroid hormone levels in subclinical and overt hypothyroid patients with the insulin resistance and their impact on serum lipid profiles and kidney function. Methods: A total of fifty newly diagnosed hypothyroid patients were recruited for the study and classified into: 1) Subclinical hypothyroid (SH) group: n-26; 2) Overt hypothyroid (OH) group: n=24, and control (C) group: n=18. Fasting blood was collected and serum was used for biochemical analysis. Results: The fasting serum insulin, glucose levels and the estimated.. View More»
