PREVALENCE OF THYROID DYSFUNCTION IN PATIENTS WITH TYPE 2 DIABETES MELLITUS
Keywords:Thyroid, Type-2DM, Complication
Background: Patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus are more prone to thyroid disorders. Hypothyroidism in them leads to an aggravation of microvascular complications. Diabetic patients with hypothyroidism also are at an increased risk of cardiovascular disease. Screening for thyroid dysfunction in diabetic patients will allow early treatment of hypothyroidism.
Methods: All patients were evaluated for thyroid status; assessment of T3, T4 and TSH levels and Blood glucose levels and HbA1c.
Results: 22.00% patients were present with subclinical hypothyroidism, 18.00% patients were present with hypothyroidism and 4.00% patients present with hyperthyroidism
Conclusion: Screening for thyroid disease disease among patients with diabetes mellitus should be routinely performed for early detection and treatment of thyroid dysfunction to delay the complications of diabetes
