Abstract
ABSTRACT
The article presents information on the results of several medical research. Overt hypothyroidism has been found to be associated with cardiovascular disease. Moreover, subclinical hypothyroidism is a strong indicator of risk for aortic atherosclerosis and myocardial infarction. Recent prospective studies have provided compelling evidence that obesity is a risk factor for the occurrence of clinical coronary events. However, the link between angiographically determined coronary atherosclerosis and obesity still remains controversial.
