A STUDY OF CORRELATION OF THE ABNORMALITIES IN THYROID HORMONE LEVELS WITH SEVERITY OF THE CIRRHOSIS OF LIVER, AND PROGNOSIS BY COMPARING WITH CHILD PUGH SCORE AND MELD SCORE

Dr Harish A Rao, Dr Prakash Harischandra.

Abstract
Background:
Cirrhosis was initially thought to be irreversible, but treated cases of haemochromatosis or Wilsonís disease show regression of fibrosis.
Cirrhosis, now is not considered an end stage disease, as with therapy, the progression of cirrhosis may be delayed. With the increasing
use of liver transplantation in the therapy of cirrhosis, there is need for estimation of accurate prognosis, as surgery for transplantation
can be performed at the right time.
Methods:
Study design: It is a hospital based descriptive cross-sectional study with comparison arm
Study setting: Study is conducted in hospitals associated with Kasturba medical college, Government Wenlock hospital, KMC Attavar and
KMC Ambedkar circle.
Sampling method: convenience sampling Sample: 90 cases, 30 controls
Results:
A statistically significant negative correlation existed between T4 and MELD and Child Pugh score.
Conclusion:
No correlation existed between TSH and MELD and Child Pugh scores.

Key words: Cross-sectional, Correlation, Thyroid, Child Pugh Score, MELD score
