Abstract: Background:According to some recent studies, a connection exists between type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) and the occurrence of subclinical hypothyroid (SCH).This purpose of this research was therefore, to determine the proportion of SCH in those diagnosed with T2DM. Materials and Methods: Data was obtained for this cross-sectional study by analyzing 278 patients suffering from T2DM for at least 1 year. The collected data include glycemic control (HbA1c) and thyroid hormone. Those with triiodothyronine (fT3), thyroxine (fT4), and TSH (≥4 μIU/ml) were suffered from SCH and examined with ultrasonographic (USG) for clinical screening of thyroid diseases. Results:Approximately 7.2% patients with T2DM were above 60 years with significant differences in number of men and women diagnosed with diabetes mellitus. There is also a significant correlation between HbA1c and SCH in T2DM. Among 20 subjects with SCH, USG thyroid suggested thyroiditis in 15 subjects. Conclusions:The prevalence of SCH among T2DM patients is high, therefore, all those with T2DM need to be examined for thyroid dysfunction.
