UNLABELLED The association between coronary heart disease and subclinical hypothyroidism (SCH) is unclear. We aimed to determine hs-CRP concentrations in patients with SCH. Seventy-seven patients (age 34.6 +/- 13.7 yr) with SCH (TSH > 4.2 microIU/ml and serum free thyroxine level between 0.932-1.71 ng/dL), and 80 control subjects (age 33.9 +/- 13.3 yr) were studied. Thyroid hormones, C-reactive protein, insulin, glucose, total, HDL, LDL and VLDL-cholesterol levels and HOMA-IR index were also… CONTINUE READING
