Abstract

The interactions between thyroid and kidney functions are well determined thyroid hormones affect renal development and physiology and kidney is required in the regulation of thyroid hormones metabolism.The goal of the current study was to evaluate the prevalence of thyroid dysfunction in patients with chronic kidney diseases (CKD). The study included (50) hemodialysis patients. All subjects were investigated with laboratory tests to estimate thyroid function, including: serum free tri iodothyronine (FT3), free thyroxine ( FT4) and thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH). Results were compared with the same measurements in (50) control groups. The incidence of CKD detected among those both with subclinical hypothyroidism (40.0%) and overt subclinical hyperthyroidism (34.0%) and low FT3 in H.D patients (5.6976±1.85334) in comparison with control groups. In conclusion. We observed high of thyroid function disorders in CKD patients. Low FT3 syndrome and high subclinical hypothyroidism are the frequently thyroid function disorders in CKD patients.
