Introduction: The relationship between subclinical hypothyroidism (SCH) and cardiovascular disease is not fully understood. We investigated risk factors for cardiovascular disease (lipid profile, lipoproteins, insulin resistance, C-reactive protein [CRP] homocysteine [Hcy] and fibrinogen levels) and their relationships with thyroid hormones in SCH patients and controls.
