SERUM ELECTROLYTES CHANGES WITH ATHEROGENIC INDEX OF PLASMA IN HYPOTHYROID DIABETIC (TYPE-2) YOUNG MALESAbstract
Background: Atherogenic index of plasma, a newly emerging lipid parameter, has been employed only in a few studies of diabetics and not at all in hypothyroid type -2 diabetic young males with electrolytes imbalance.
Methods: Association between diabetic hypothyroid and electrolytes with atherogenic index of plasma in 50 subjects and aged (25-45 years) matched healthy controlled were studied retrospectively. Glucose and lipid parameters were measured on fully automated analyzer using standard reagent kits. Serum TSH and serum Electrolytes were measured by TOSOH-AIA-360, immunoassay method and Easylyte Na/K analyzer, respectively.
Results: On comparing the different parameters, a significant correlation (r=-0.38, p=0.005) between serum sodium and AIP was seen.
Conclusions: Decrease sodium values and increased AIP values indicated the higher risk of CVD, in the type -2 diabetic hypothyroid young males, while there were no changed in serum potassium values.
