Now a days thyroid related disease likes sub-clinical hypothyroidism, hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism are the major problems of population mainly in elder women. Thyroid function test is used to evaluate the functions of thyroid gland and disease status. So the present study was aimed to estimate the levels of circulating markers of thyroid gland in sera and to interpret the results to know the prevalence and pattern of abnormal condition of thyroid in the people of Indore city. The parameters studied were T3, T4 and TSH. It was found that 10.76% (9.95% female and 0.81% male) populations was affected by sub-clinical hypothyroidism, 3.25% (2.55% female and 0.69% male) was affected by hypothyroidism, 3.25% (2.89% female and 0.35% male) by sub-clinical hyperthyroidism, 2.2% (1.27% female and 0.93% male) by primary hypothyroidism, 1.63% (1.39% female and 0.23% male) by primary hyperthyroidism and 1.39% (1.04% female and 0.35% male) was affected by hyperthyroidism. It was concluded from the present study that sub-clinical hypothyroidism was the most prevalent than other disorder of the thyroid gland in the people of Indore city and females were more affected than males by all forms of thyroid disease.
