Abstract: Diabetic patients have a higher prevalence of thyroid disorders compared with the normal population. Because patients with one organ-specific autoimmune disease are at risk of developing other autoimmune disorders, and thyroid disorders are more common in females, it is not surprising that up to 30% of female type1 diabetic patients have thyroid disease. A thorough clinical examination including vitals, general physical examination, systemic examination and investigations was carried out. Biochemical investigations were carried out using proper aseptic precautions for collecting blood. It is seen that, in the present study patients were divided into 2 groups based on duration of diabetes. There were 52 diabetic patients in ≤3 months group, of which 40 patients were euthyroids and 12 patients had thyroid dysfunction. There were 58 diabetic patients in ≥3 months group, of which 44 patients were euthyroids and 14 patients had thyroid dysfunction. However there was no statistically significant difference between these two groups.(p value was 1.00).
