Background and purpose: Based on the high prevalence of diabetes mellitus and hypothyroidism and different disorders from their coincidence, the present study was designed to determine the correlation between type 2 diabetes mellitus and hypothyroidism.
Materials and methods: Ïn this case-control study, 103 type 2 diabetic patients were compared with 103 healthy subjects. Âge, gender and family history of thyroid disease were matched between the two groups. For all patients, anti-thyroid peroxidase antibody (Ânti-TPÔ), FBS, Triglyceride, Çholesterol, HDL and LDL were measured. Descriptive analysis, T-test and X2 were used for data analysis.
Results: Ïn each group, 14 (%13.59) cases were men and 89 (%86.4) cases were women. The prevalence of hypothyroidism in the case group and the control group were %17.5 and %26.2, respectively, which was not statistically significant (P>0.05). Twenty eight percent of hypothyroid patients in diabetic group and 55% in the control group had autoimmune hypothyroidism (P<0.05).
Çonclusion: The results of this study showed that the prevalence of hypothyroidism in type 2 diabetic patients is as high as normal population. Because of the interaction between diabetic mellitus and hypothyroidism, screening of hypothyroidism and suitable treatment in diabetic patients is recommended.
