There is evidence of an association between hypothyroidism and coronary heart disease. We decided to look at the relationship between hypothyroidism and LDL subclasses' pattern including small, dense LDL to define a biochemical basis for better management of the CHD risk of these patients. We utilized a case-control design to evaluate differences in lipid parameters between cases and controls. Univariate analysis revealed that many factors were associated with LDL particle size.
