ABSTRACT
 
Objective: To evaluate the correlation between blood pressure, heart rate and lipid profile in Clinical hypothyroidism.
Study Design: Comparative Cross-sectional study.
Place and Duration: Department of Physiology, Islamic International Medical College, Rawalpindi from January 9, 2013 to December 8, 2013.
Methodology: The subjects were selected through non-probability, purposive sampling and divided into 2 groups on the basis of thyroid profile. i.e. control (euthyroids), and case (clinical hypothyroids). Clinical assessment of vital parameters such as heart rate, blood pressure and laboratorial evaluation of blood for lipid profile was analyzed in a systematic way.
Results: A highly statistically significant association was found in serum cholesterol, triglyceride and low density lipoprotein levels (the calculated probability was less than 0.01). Likewise, a statistically significant association was found in heart rate (the calculated probability was equal to 0.02) and maximum heart rate (the calculated probability was equal to 0.03) Additionally, A highly statistically significant association was found in mean arterial blood pressure, systolic and diastolic blood pressure (the calculated probability was less than 0.01) between the two study groups.
Conclusion: Clinical hypothyroid patients have higher risk of hypertension and pro-atherogenic lipid abnormalities.
Keywords: Hypothyroidism, Heart rate, Blood pressure, Hyperlipidemia, Tri-iodothyronin, Thyroid stimulating hormone.
