Abstract

Objective: To evaluate the prevalence of vitamin D deficiency in postmenopausal women in light of
restrictions imposed by the Covid-19 pandemic.
Methods: This was a single-center cross-sectional study with total of 167 women patients (post-menopausal
:133, pre-menopausal: 24) who were divided into two groups according to age.
Result: There were significant negative links between serum T4 hormone levels and each of serum calcium
values (r=-0.049, p <0.001) in post-menopausal. Serum T4 hormone levels are negatively correlated to TSH
hormone levels (r=-0.032, p < 0.001) but T3 hormone levels shows significantly negative correlation (r=-
0.277p<0.001). The correlation between serum T4 hormone levels vs Glucose in patients was significantly
negative (r= -0.017, p <0.001),The results show that significant decrease(p<0.01) in serum levels T4, T3
hormone, vit. D in post-menopausal women compared as compared to pre-menopausal, correlation of
vitamin D with serum calcium (0.23 and T4, hormone (0.137) was significantly positive, and high fasting
glucose in post-menopausal as compared to pre-menopausal .
Conclusion: Baseline serum vitamin D levels are inversely related with thyroid hormone in post-menopausal
women
