Objective: The study was designed to find out the effect of hypothyroidism on some electrolytes and total calcium levels.

Blood samples were taken from both (patients and control) to evaluate thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) by ELISA method, as well as potassium, sodium and calcium were measured automated by Genex Elyte 4 device.

Results: It was found the levels of total calcium and sodium were decreased significantly (p<0.05) cases as compare with control group, while the level of potassium was decreased no significantly (p>0.05) in cases than control. Also, the results were indicated to a significant negative correlation between serum TSH value and calcium level in patients. Increased the TSH levels, lower will be the levels of serum calcium, sodium and potassium levels.
