Effects of Infection with Toxoplasma Gondii to the Levels of Thyroid Hormones

Taghreed Ahmed Mustafa Al-Issawi, Aysir Saleh Mohammed.

Abstract
The present study was designed to detect the effect of toxoplasmosis in the thyroid hormones level Samples were collected during the period from July2019 to January 2020. Where the separated serum was preserved at a temperature (-20) until use. The enzyme-linked immunosorbent technique (ELISA) was used to detect toxoplasmosis. Hormone levels (TSH, TSH, T3 and calcitonin) were also measured using ELISA technology, Hormonal study, the results of the current study showed significant increase (P <0.05) in TSH, T3, and calcitonin levels in the infected group compared with control group and significant decrease (P <0.05) in T4 levels compared with control group. On the other hand, there was an increase in TSH levels in the hypothyroidism group compared with control group, with a significant decrease in the levels of T4, T3 and calcitonin compared with control group. A significant decrease (P <0.05) was found in TSH levels in the hyperthyroid group. Hyperthyroidism group showed significant increase (P <0.05) in the levels of T4, T3 and calcitonin compared with control group.

Key words: Hyperthyroidism , Hypothyroidism, Calcitonin, Toxoplasmosis
