Abstract


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.


This abstract is from the research paper published by Thyroid Clinic, Dr B R Sur Homoeopathic Medical College & Hospital, New Delhi in Indian Journal of Medical Research in Homoeopathy (IJRH), a peer reviewed journal by Central Council for Research in Homoeopathy (CCRH). The full article is available in July-Sept 2009 issue of the council.
