The objective of this study was to evaluate the lipid profile and thyroid function in hyper and hypotensive patients. This case-control study was conducted among the hyper and hypotensive patients from Jan to June, 2018 in Baghdad. The participants were evaluated out of which 40 were hypertensive, 37 were hypotensive and 66 were enrolled as a normal control group. The levels of serum cholesterol, triglyceride, HDL, LDL and VLDL were determined by a spectrophotometer, as well as serum levels of thyroid hormones (TSH, fT4 and fT3) were determined by ELISA technique. The results indicated the presence of a significant increase in serum levels of cholesterol, triglyceride, VLDL and fT4 for patients with hypertension (p<0.05), and a significant decrease in serum level of triglyceride in patients with hypotension when compare with control. In addition, the results show the presence of a significant increase in cholesterol, triglyceride, HDL and VLDL levels as well as a highly significant decrease in fT4 level of patients with hypertension compared with patients with hypotension.
