The study was aimed to investigate the impacts of 16 weeks aerobic exercise on plasma level of thyroid hormones concentration changes in females’ individuals with intellectual disabilities. A total of eight female children with intellectual disabilities were taken though purposive sampling. The training program consisted of 16 weeks moderate-intensity aerobic exercises with an intensity of 45-75 HR. These exercises were performed three sessions a week and each session take 45-minutes, 15 minutes warming up, 30 minutes main and 5 minutes cool down exercise. The plasma level of triiodothyronine (T3) and thyroxin (T4) thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) were measured before and after 16 weeks aerobic exercise. After 16 weeks of intervention, a significant change was observed in the plasma level of thyroid (T3 and T4) and thyroid stimulating (TSH) hormones at (p < 0.05).In general, it can be concluded that aerobic exercise had an impact on the change responses of thyroid and thyroid stimulating hormones in blood serum in female children with intellectual disabilities.
