dc.description.abstractWe investigated thyroid function in 46 [‎20 female and 26 male]‎ psychiatric outpatients on lithium treatment by assessing triiodothyronine, thyroxine and thyroid stimulating hormone [‎TSH]‎ levels. The presence of thyroid antibodies [‎anti-thyroid peroxidase and anti-thyroglobulin]‎ was also assessed. Out of the 46 patients, 8 [‎17%]‎ displayed overt hypothyroidism. Of the remaining patients, subclinical hypothyroidism was found in 16 patients [‎35%]‎ and euthyroidism in 22 [‎48%]‎. Thyroid antibodies were present in 6 patients in the euthyroid group and 5 patients in the hypothyroid group. The Pearsor product-moment correlation results indicated positive association between TSH level and duration of lithium use and age of the patients with subclinical hypothyroidism. Duration of lithium use and age could be a reasonable indicator for screening asymptomatic patients for subclinical hypothyroidism after starting lithium treatmentEN
