AbstractObjective This study focuses on the relationship between calcium ion concentration in human body and thyroid hormones with liver
enzymes to determine the effect of some physiological and biochemical parameter of liver [glutamic oxaloacetic transaminase (GOT),
glutamic pyruvic transaminase (GPT), Bilirubin] and thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH; T3, T4), on the levels of calcium ion in the blood.
Methods The current study included 40 patients from two different hospitals in Karbala city. This study has been investigated to find the
effect of thyroid hormones (T3, T4, TSH) and liver enzymes (GOT, GPT, Bilirubin) on calcium ion concentration.
Results The results revealed there is no significant difference (P > 0.01) between calcium ion concentration and thyroid hormones (T4, T3,
TSH) in each groups of different ages, respectively. Therefore, weak correlation between calcium and hormones pointed to an increase or
decrease of calcium ion concentration effect by these hormones.
Conclusion There is no significant difference (P > 0.01) between liver enzymes (GOT, GPT, Bilirubin) and calcium ion concentration in each
groups of different ages respectively, although weak correlation between calcium and hormones that pointed to an increase or decrease
of calcium ion concentration is also affected by these enzymes.
