Study of the Biochemical Markers of Liver and Renal Function in Moderate -To- Heavy Cigarette Smokers’ Men in Mosul City
Keywords:Non-smokers, biochemical markers, liver, renal.
Smoking has been associated with adverse health effects on body organs. The effect of smoking on the
liver’s enzymes and kidney’s parameters, and their relationships with some blood parameters need more
evaluation. This study aimed to investigate the association of cigarette smoking to liver and kidney functions
in 68 males, all of them not suffer from chronic disease and their ages were between (25-45) years, by
estimating the levels of alanine aminotransferase (ALT), aspartate aminotransferase (AST) and alkaline
phosphatase (ALP) as liver enzymes as well as estimating of creatinine, urea, and uric acid in the serum
of smokers comparing with non-smokers groups (control). Also, this work aimed to study the effects of
smoking on some blood profiles, white blood cell counts (WBC), red blood counts (RBC), hemoglobin
(HB), mean corpuscular volume (MCV), and platelet (PLT) . The results showed a significant increase in
(ALT), (AST), (ALP) enzymes, urea, creatinine (WBC), (RBC), (HB) and (MCV) ,the result also showed
a significant decrease in uric acid while no significant decrease in (PLT) in smokers comparing to nonsmokers’ group. In conclusion a cigarette smoking negatively affected in biochemical markers of liver and
