Abstract

The paper investigates the serum concentration levels and the association between the levels of ferritin or vitamin D with thyroid dysfunction in Hypothyroid Patients. 90 participants were involved in this study; 47 healthy people (controls) (18 males and 29 females) and 43 hypothyroid patients (16 males and 27 females). Both groups have a mean age (age ± standard error) and body mass index (BMI) (BMI ± standard error) of 34.36. ± 1.19 years and 27.55± 0.52 kg/m2, respectively. The obtained results indicated that the age of participants played an ignorable role in this investigation (P ?0.05), while significant differences were noticed between the patients and controls (P <0.05) in terms of BMI, 25(OH) vit D, ferritin, TSH, T3 and T4. There was also a significant difference (P<0.05) between male and female patients in terms of ferritin, TSH, T3 and T4 in comparison with the controls.
