Correction of Selenium Deficiency Has Effect on Thyroid Function

2018-02-28 20:30:11 | BioPortfolio


Previous literature has found potential association between selenium deficiency and inactivated glutathione peroxidase and deiodinase, which may contribute to subsequent elevation of T4 and ratio of T4/T3. Conduction of a case-control study (ID: Liuyanping3) has been applied on to further elucidate effect of selenium deficiency on thyroid function. Based on its data, the investigators will perform a randomized, placebo-controlled,single-blinded crossover study on 20 participants with selenium deficiency to verify health consequence of selenium.
