Thyroid dysfunction has been traditionally related to several lipid abnormalities. Indeed, even within the normal range of thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) values, a linear increase in total cholesterol, low-density lipoprotein cholesterol and triglycerides and a linear decrease in high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C) levels has been observed with increasing TSH. With respect to serum high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol concentrations, high, normal, or low values have been reported in different series. The aim of this report is to evaluate HDL-cholesterol subfractions analysed through nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) through thyroid function spectrum in a Brazilian population.
