SCH participants who were at an intermediate-to-high risk of developing CAD (AR10y) were significantly more likely to exhibit region-specific CV fat tissue (TAT) and noninvasive visceral adipose indices (CVAI and BRI) than EU individuals, especially in Taiwanese women. These findings suggest that mild thyroid failure also independently contributes to the development of abnormal fatty distribution.
