The objectives of this study were to evaluate whether there were higher rates of primary congenital hypothyroidism (PCH) or elevated concentrations of thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) in a community where perchlorate was detected in groundwater wells. The adjusted PCH prevalence ratio and 95% confidence interval (CI) comparing the study community to San Bernardino and Riverside counties combined was 0.45 (95% CI=0.06-1.64). The odds ratios for elevated TSH concentration were 1.24 (95% CI=0.89… CONTINUE READING
