Oxidative stress leads to or accompanies with numerous disease. Oxidative balance in subclinical hypothyroid or euthyroid state in Hashimoto disease are not known. Effect of levothyroxine therapy on oxidative balance are also not known in hashimoto disease.
Condition or disease
oxidative stress markers will be measured initially(TAS,TOS,OSI,PARAOXONASE,ARYLESTERASA,PON1 PHENOTYPİNG,LİPİDPEROXİD).After 3 months therapy with levothyroxine measurements will be repeated except PON1 phenotyping.
