In this paper, researchers assessed the ability of high-throughput NMR metabolomics to distinguish thyroid disorders, such as Grave's disease and Hashimoto's thyroiditis.

Although the analysis yielded significant associations between thyroid disorders and some blood metabolites, such as triglycerides in small VLDL, triglycerides in very small VLDL, and triglycerides in large LDL, the analysis was not able to distinguish clear metabolic patterns between different thyroid disorders.
