The aim of this study was to evaluate the lipid profile of patients with different degrees of hypothyroidism and the effect of levothyroxine replacement in subclinical hypothyroidism (SH). Initially, a cross-sectional study was performed with 226 participants [SH = 133 participants, manifest hypothyroidism (MH) = 23 participants, and euthyroidism (EU) = 70 participants]. The mean levels of atherogenic lipid variables were greater in MH than in SH and were greater in SH than in EU, although the… CONTINUE READING
