This study was aimed to study the effect of thyroid hormones on some biochemical tests of liver function in Iraqi male patients and to study the relationship between them. A controlled study included 135 samples from patients and controls, group B, 45 patients with a liver disorder, and group C: 45 patients with a thyroid disorder, and group A: 45 healthy people (as the controls group). The study concluded that there were significant statistically significant differences for patients with liver disease, as well as for patients who suffer from abnormalities in the functions of the thyroid gland. For triiodothyronine (T3) and thyroxine (T4), there was clear importance and a slight impact for patients with liver disease. Because of the defect in the liver enzymes, this led to an increase in the TSB percentage, which increased significantly. Alkaline and Albumin levels indicate statistical significance within the results of our study. Serum protein levels had no significant changes in our study.
