OBJECTIVE The significance of dyslipidemia in subclinical hypothyroidism (SH) and the effect of thyroid substitution on lipids remain controversial. The present study aimed to assess the association of SH with lipid abnormalities and to quantify the effect of L-thyroxine therapy on serum lipid profiles. DESIGN Serum lipid parameters of 66 patients with SH and 75 age- and sex-matched euthyroid controls were evaluated in a cross-sectional study. RESULTS Patients with SH had higher total… CONTINUE READING
