Abstract:
Background: The present study was conducted for assessing patients with ischemic stroke and impact of thyroid profile.
Materials and Methods: A total of 50 subjects with presence of acute ischemic stroke were enrolled in the present study. Complete demographic and clinical details of all the subjects was obtained. A thorough clinical examination of all the subjects was carried out. All the subjects were broadly divided into two study groups as follows: Group 1:25 subjects with normal consciousness and preserved effective verbal communication, and Group 2:25 subjects with poor verbal communication. Blood samples were obtained from all the patients and serum thyroid profile was evaluated.
Results: Among group 1 and group 2 subjects, majority of them had serum TSG and fT4 values within normal reference range. However, fT3 values were significantly altered among subjects of group 2.
Conclusion: Although most of the patients with acute ischemic stroke have normal thyroid function, a small proportion of patients requires further evaluation
