Hemoglobin and thyroid dysfunction in postmenopausal women: Descriptive clinical study
Author(s): Dr. Shigil Mathew Varghese and Dr. Riji Varghese
Abstract: Clinical hyperthyroidism has been associated with systolic hypertension, increased pulse pressure, and possibly hyperhomocysteinemia. Additionally, patients with overt hyperthyroidism have a hypercoagulable state and an increased risk of thrombosis. Project was submitted to ethical committee, got approval from the ethical committee. Test and control population were recruited after obtaining all necessary consent in their local regional language. Haemoglobin and its effect on thyroid profile were evaluated. Mean haemoglobin values for euthyroid subjects were10.3g%, sub-clinical hypothyroid 11.1g%, overt hypothyroid 10.7g% and hyperthyroid subjects 10.1g%. Result indicate that Free T3 and haemoglobin have negative correlation. This means, as the Hb increases Free T3 decreases and vice versa. Similarly Free T4 and haemoglobin also have negative correlation. Whereas TSH and haemoglobin have positive correlation, that is, as haemoglobin increases TSH also increases and vice versa.
