Evaluation of hs-CRP and lipid profile in patients diagnosed with the hypothyroid condition


Dr. Yogesh Kumar Dubey, Dr. Ramdhan Kumar Kamat

Thyroid disorders are known to influence lipid metabolism and other CV risk factors predominantly. Dyslipidaemia is a well-recognized association of thyroid dysfunction which should be considered in the process of evaluating and treating dyslipidemic patients. Hence based on above findings the present study was planned for Evaluation of hs-CRP and lipid profile in Patients Diagnosed with the hypothyroid Condition. The present study was planned in Department of General Medicine, Indira Gandhi Institute of Medical sciences, Patna, Bihar. In the present study 30 cases of the newly detected hypothyroid adults were enrolled in the Group A. The 30 cases of control were also enrolled in Group B for comparative evaluation. The data generated from the present study concludes that hypothyroidism is associated with dyslipidemia and low-grade inflammation. Subclinical hypothyroidism was found to be more common than clinical hypothyroidism. The mild and inconsistent changes which were observed in the biochemical parameters in hypothyroidism may be due to the preponderance of subclinical hypothyroid cases in this study. However, dyslipidemia and inflammatory markers were found to be increased in the cases that helped in prediction and evaluation of patients at risk of cardiovascular disease.
