    Introduction: Hypothyroidism is a common endocrinal disorder in which thyroid gland does not produce enough thyroid hormones. The disease mainly occurs in female and its prevalence rises with age. Hypothyroidism may be the underlying cause of dyslipidemia and alteration of plasma glucose levels as thyroid hormones plays a key role in lipid and carbohydrate metabolism. It also helps in the growth and development of kidney; hence hypothyroidism may alter the uric acid level in serum due to altered secretion of uric acid at renal tubules. Aims and Objectives: To evaluate if there is any significant correlation between lipid parameters, uric acid, fasting plasma glucose with thyroid parameters in female. Methodology: We included 35 cases and 35 controls (Aged between 20-45 years) and estimated their serum TSH, FT4 by E.. View More»
