Blood samples were taken for standard laboratory analysis, total and free thyroid hormone levels. Results: On comparing patients with and without psychiatric illness and their potassium values, there was a significant association (p< 0.05) between abnormal potassium values and psychiatric illness. There was a significant association (p< 0.05) between psychiatric illness and total bilirubin values. The thyroid profile, there was a significant association (p< 0.05) between abnormal FT3, FT4 values and psychiatric illness. Conclusions: Our study showed that functional thyroid gland disorders are more common among patients having psychiatric morbidity undergoing haemodialysis compared with healthy subjects and reveal their link with time on dialysis.
