ABSTRACT


 Thyroid hormones (T3, T4) are important hormones affecting body metabolism. Any change in their levels results in appearance of many complications including changes in blood sugar levels. In this study we determined blood sugar level in cases of hyper, hypo and euthyroidism. It was found that there was highly significant elevation in blood sugar level in case of hyperthyroidism ( p<0.01). There is obvious correlation (r=-0.237) between blood sugar level and TSH value in patients with hypothyroidism.
