Abstract: In 2010, the prevalence of DM in the United Sates was estimated to be 0.2% in individuals aged <20 years and 11.3% in individuals aged >20 years. In individuals aged >65 years, the prevalence of DM was 26.9%. The prevalence is similar in men and women throughout most age ranges (11.8% and 10.8%, respectively, in individuals aged >20 years). Patients were examined for presence of diabetes mellitus according to ADA criteria for diagnosis of diabetes mellitus.
All diabetic patients were then subjected to estimation of BMI, HbA1C, Serum cholesterol, Serum triglyceride, HDL, VLDL and LDL levels. Then all the patients were evaluated for thyroid dysfunction by testing thyroid profile (T3, T4, TSH and anti TPO Ab). Among 110 diabetes patients in the present study, 33 patients had microvascular complications, of which 8 patients had thyroid dysfunction. There was no significant association present between these two groups (p value was 1.00).
