Method: The sample of this research was collected crosssectionally on 40 patients with liver cirrhosis based Child-Pugh score. Ultrasonography and Triiodothyronine (T3), Tetraiodothyronine (T4), Freethyoxine (FT4), thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) levels examinations to know the difference between liver cirrhosis patients with Child-Pugh A, B, and C with ELISA method.

Results: Statistical analysis showed there are not found significant differences in T3, T4, FT4, TSH levels in patients with of the liver cirrhosis based on the Child-Pugh score.

Conclusion: Not found significant differences in thyroid hormone levels among patients with liver cirrhosis Child-Pugh A, B, and C.
