Abstract
Obesity is a state of excess of adipose tissue body mass index (BMI) (Weight/Height2 in Kg/M2) is most widely used method to gauge obesity (1). BMI >30 is most commonly used as threshold for obesity in men and women. Obesity has become major public health problem in developed and developing countries.
Aim: To access the obesity and to study the states of hypothyroidism and Insulin resistance.
Materials and Methods: We examined 60 Females, The age group between 20 years and 50 years and whose body mass index is more than 30Kg/M2 and studied for 1 year i.e From 2015 Feb to 2016 Jan. Subjects who are on thyroid preparations Lithium, Amiodarone and Corticosteroid were excluded in this study blood samples were collected to assess fasting blood sugar, T3, T4, TSH, HOMAIR and fasting Insulin.
Results: In 14 subjects only TSH is elevated. 24% were having subclinical Hypothyroidism. The mean age is 29.8±6.32 years Insulin resistance is seen in 38% subjects. Insulin resistance is seen in 21% of subjects whose thyroid function test are normal.
Conclusion: As obese person are more pore to develop diabetes, hypertension, coronary artery disease it is necessary to investigate Insulin resistance and Thyroid profile is obese person. In our study Insulin resistance is seen in 38% of obese subjects.
