The Relationship between Serum Cholesterol and Serum Thyroid Hormones in Male Patients with Suspected Hypothyroidism

The relationship between serum cholesterol, thyrotropin, thyroxine and triiodothyronine was investigated in 456 male patients with suspected hypothyroidism. The correlation between serum cholesterol and serum thyroxine (r = 0·0572) and between serum cholesterol and serum triiodothyronine (r = 0·1136) were not significant but the correlation between serum cholesterol and TSH (r = 0·0376) was significant (P< 0·001). The mean serum cholesterol was only significantly increased in the patient groups with a serum TSH greater than 20 mU/L. In 26 patients treated for hypothyroidism with thyroxine replacement there was a significant correlation between the decrease in serum cholesterol and the decrease in serum TSH (r = 0·5334, P<0·01) but there was poor correlation between the decrease in cholesterol and either the increase in serum triiodothyronine or the increase in serum thyroxine.
