2021 - Fluoride and acquired hypothyroidism

Post by admin »

Purusothaman S, Lal DV, Kumar R - "Estimation of Fluoride Levels in Drinking Water and its Association with Acquired Hypothyroidism"
Int J Cur Res Rev 13(7):34-39 (2021)

NOTE: No effort was made to investigate total fluoride intake. TSH levels might be mis-stated. No detailed data.

"Though children with low free T3 levels were consuming relatively higher fluoride content water (0.502 ppm) compared to those with normal free T3 levels having water with a fluoride level of 0.442 ppm, the difference was not statistically significant."
