Setting of the present study was performed in Teaching Hospital in Erbil city - Iraq from 1st of October 2017 to 1st of March 2018. A total of 433 female were participated for blood tests to estimate thyroid function. Only 323 (74.6%) cases showed overall variation in hormonal level and 110 (25.4%) cases were normal.

Generally 291(90%) of cases were married. 52% of the cases were 41 to 45 age group and 14.2 % cases was in both 26 to 30 and 31-35 age groups.
About 59 (18.3%) cases had high TSH level only 13 (4%) case is considered as hypothyroidism when examined by consultation and collaboration with senior physician, while 54 (16.7%) cases had low TSH level but 41(12.7%) cases were considered hyperthyroidism. The result shows that 4 (1.7%) case have high T3 level and 52 (16.09%) case have low T3 level. While 26(8.04%) case have high T4 level and 61 (18.9%) case have low T4 level. In conclusion, we believe that thyroid diseases are more prevalent in women in Erbil and hyperthyroidism patient was more than hypothyroidism.
