CORRELATION OF THYROID FUNCTION TEST WITH BIOCHEMICAL MARKERS OF RENAL FUNCTION IN CKD PATIENTS ON HEMODIALYSIS

Vinit Ramesh Chaudhary, Sushilkumar Sunil Gharge.


Abstract

Introduction: Thyroid replacement therapy when it comes to chronic kidney disease (CKD) patients has the potential to save renal function. It is therefore of utmost importance to identify such cases and recognize when to initiate thyroid replacement therapy. Methods: This observational study was conducted on a cohort of 70 CKD patients from June 2020 to July 2020. All clinically stable patients for the last six months and on hemodialysis were included. Results: Around 30 (42.9%) cases belonged to stage 5, 37 (52.9%) belonged to stage 4, and 3 (4.3%) belonged to stage 3 of CKD. Hypothyroidism was seen in 17 (24.3%) cases. Conclusion: We found that the T3 hormone is inversely correlated with blood urea, creatinine levels, and positively correlated with hemoglobin levels.

Key words: Thyroid Function test, biochemical markers, renal function, chronic kidney disease, hemodialysis
