The average MMSE score of hypothyroid patients was 22.56±3.36, average MMSE score of control group is 24.94±2.48. When compared the both group shows (p <0.0001) extremely significant. Hypothyroidism patients have low MMSE score than euthyroid participants which reveals hypothyroidism is significantly associated with cognitive impairment.
