  • Abstract: The thyroid involvement is very significant feature of fluorosis due to fluoride accumulation in soft tissues. The participation of long term consumption of fluoride in drinking water on thyroid hormone status and deiodinating enzymes in fluorotic patients selected randomly from various parts of fluoride endemic areas, was elucidated. Type I (D1) activity was depressed significantly (P<0.001) in all fluorotic study groups in comparison to control, while type-II (D2) activity was… CONTINUE READING
