When chronic renal failure becomes advanced, the serum levels of most hormones are altered because of several interplaying mechanisms. This study was carried out to evaluate the level of total thyroxine (T4), triiodothyronine (T3) and thyrotropin (TSH) in 96 clinically euthyriod patient with chronic renal failure and 25 healthy individual as control. The patients were grouped into two groups, 62 patient on conservative management and 34 patients on chronic haemodialysis. The patient of both groups showed significant decrease in total T3 and T4 level as compared to normal control. Serum TSH level were similar in both groups as well as in control and were with in normal limit except 3 patients on conservative management which showed TSH level above normal chronic haemodialysis did not have positive effect in alteration of serum T3, T4 and TSH level.
