Objective: To investigate the relationship between thyroid and kidney function. Design and methods: 13,383 results of serum creatinine and thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) were retrieved from the database of our Laboratory. Results: When compared with euthyroid subjects, those with TSH < 0.2 mIU/L and > 2.5 mIU/L had increased and decreased estimated glomerular filtration rate (e-GFR), respectively. TSH levels were an independent predictor of e-GFR. Conclusions: A mutual relationship was observed between kidney and thyroid status. © 2008 The Canadian Society of Clinical Chemists.
