Vol. 3, No. 3, July-September 2009

Screening of 4543 children between 6-18 years of age from different schools of Delhi was done
during the first phase of research study under EMR project by AYUSH, for thyroid function
status-clinically, serologically & ultrasonographically. Data of 4506 children has been analyzed
& it has been found that goiter is prevalent at mild endemic level in children (17%) even after
two decades of iodization. Significant increase in anti TPO ab positivity (6.39%) and thyroid
dysfunction (11.92%) raises suspicion about the role of environmental goitrogens and prolonged
iodine supplementation.
Key words: anti thyro-peroxidase antibody (anti TPO ab), free T3 (FT3), free T4 (FT4), goiter, Iodine
deficiency disorders (IDDs), subclinical hypothyroidism, thyroid autoimmunity, universal salt iodization
(USI).

  6. I'm having a bit of trouble reading this as the bottoms of the pages are cut off. Is this auto immune thyroiditis also called Hashimoto's Thyroiditis? If so, it is endemic in the United States especially persons in the midwest and west. Three of us in my family have Hashimoto's.
