Background: Thyroid function regulates a wide array of metabolic parameters and significantly affects lipoprotein metabolism. Subclinical hypothyroidism (SCH) is the most common thyroid disorder, with a prevalence up to 10% in adult populations. Subclinical hypothyroidism is defined as mild elevation in thyroid stimulating hormones (TSH) in presence of normal free thyroxine (fT4) and free triiodothyronine (fT3). This mild elevation of serum TSH is caused by a minor initial dec...
