Serum samples from thirty patients with thyroiditis disease (hyperthyroidism and hypothyroidism) were collected from visits to the endocrinology departments of the Baghdad Teaching Hospital and the Oncology Teaching Hospital and were compared to twenty control samples from healthy people. The results helped researchers determine the causes of the two conditions by applying theoretical analyses of the thyroid gland, which included calculating the total hormone concentration in the thyroid gland. Thyroiditis was shown to occur more frequently in females than in males, and to peak amongst the ages of 20-40. T3, T4, and TSH levels were all shown to be significantly different between hypothyroid, hyperthyroid, and control patients (P0.005). Serum levels of potassium and sodium are within the normal range, whereas chloride is slightly higher.
