Aim and Objective: Significance of TSH and Serum Cortisol in patient of anxiety disorder in young adults. Introduction: Anxiety disorders refer to a group of mental disorders characterized by feelings of anxiety and fear, including generalised anxiety disorder (GAD), panic disorder, phobias, social anxiety disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). As with depression, symptoms can range from mild to severe. The duration of symptoms typically experienced by people with anxiety disorders makes it more a chronic than episodic disorder. Variations and hormonal level also play significant role in GAD. Materials and Methods: Detailed data was collected regarding age, occupation, marital status, special habits, smoking and alcohol intake, vegetarian and non vegetarian status, family size status, duration of disease, associated complications, associated medical and surgical conditions, and drug intake. Serum TSH and Cortisol level was detected by standard procedure taking sample from patients under study Results and Discussion: In our study all (100%) participants were young adults. None of the individual was below 15 years of age in this study. Most (45.7%) of the participants belonged to age group of 25-30 years, 65.7% of individuals were male, while 34.2 % were females. Male predominance was seen. Mean RBS of cases was 116.32±17.14 while in control mean RBS is 113.17±18.07. Mean value of TSH in cases is 1.32±0.32 and in control mean TSH is 2.48±0.99.Mean value of Serum cortisol in cases is 295.83±100.27and in control mean cortisol is 122.76±77.10. The difference between values of Serum Cortisol and Serum TSH in case and control is found statistically significant (P<0.05). The vast majority of patients with hyperthyroidism will display a psychiatric disorder such as anxiety, mania, or depression and Cortisol level also play important role in the same. Conclusion: Thus it can be concluded that low level of TSH and high level of cortisol responsible for anxity disorders in adults under study some of the socio- demographic factors like family history.
