Fasting TSH, T3, T4, FT3, FT4 and recent blood sugar levels measured along with other routine laboratory investigations. TSH, T3, T4, FT3, FT4 were estimated by chemiluminescence method. Results Of the 100 patient studied 21 were suffering from Type I DM whereas the rest had Type II DM. The prevalence of euthyroid, hypothyroid, hyperthyroid, subclinical hypothyroid & subclinical hyperthyroid was 76 %, 12 %, 3 %, 5 %, 4 % respectively.
