  1. Results are expressed as average ± SEM for the four groups indicated as control (CTL), hyperthyroid (HYPER) and hypothyroid (HYPO) where TG = plasma triglyceride, TChol = total cholesterol, LDL-C = LDL cholesterol, HDL-C = HDL cholesterol and NEFA = non-esterified fatty acids. Significance was calculated by ANOVA with Bonferroni post-hoc test where differences vs. control (CTL) group are indicated as *P < 0.05,**P < 0.01,***P < 0.001; and differences between hyperthyroid and hypothyroid are indicated as p < 0.05, ††p < 0.01, †††p < 0.001.
