Summary: Purpose of investigation is to determine
incidence and features of thyroid disease in diabetic patients : how
often they are, do they depend on the type, severity and duration of
diabetes mellitus, what is their impact on control of glycaemia and
finally do they differ from the similar thyroid disease in nondiabetic
patients. Available data are older and are not complete. New data deal
with type I diabetes and are related to diabetes in childhood.
Keywords: Thyroid disease, hypothyroidism, hyperthyroidism, goiter, thyroiditis, thyroid neoplasm, nonthyroidal illness, in diabetes mellitus, in IDDM, in NIDDM.
Research goals: 1)Determine the incidence of thyroid disease in our
diabetic patients. 2)Are there any differences in the incidence of thyroid
disease as whole or in the incidence of particular thyroid disease between
patients with insulin dependent and insulin independent type of diabetes
mellitus. 3)Determine influence of duration and severity od diabetes
mellitus on occurrence of thyroid disease. 4)Do the treatment modalities
have any influence. 5)Do the epidemiologic, clinical and laboratory
features of thyroid disease in diabetic patients as whole group and in
patients with type I and type II diabetes mellitus respectively differ
from the same thyroid pathology in patients without diabetes mellitus. 6)
What is the impact of thyroid disease on glycaemia control in diabetic
patients. Other information about the project.
