Abstract

Background: Although prooxidant and antioxidant status were reported to be changed in clinical and experimental hypothyroidism, obtained results are conflicting. In addition, in subclinical hypothyroidism, scarced and controversial data are available about oxidative stress. Therefore, we aimed to investigate prooxidant-antioxidant status only in Hashimoto's thyroiditis (HT) patients with subclinical (sHT) and overt hypothyroidism (oHT).
