Core Tip Thyroid dysfunction is the second most common endocrine disorder after diabetes mellitus. Both diseases are strong associated. Hypothyroidism is claimed to cause insulin resistance. Some available reports are in agreement and others are against this suggestion. In our study, we did not find a significant effect of hypothyroidism or thyroxine replacement on insulin resistance as calculated by insulin resistance was estimated using homeostasis model assessment. Thyroxine therapy leads to a significant reduction of total cholesterol but it does not change triglycerides. This may partially explain the association between hypothyroidism and dyslipidaemia as well as cardiovascular risk.
