- Comparative study of thyroid function and types of thyroid dysfunction in two areas in Denmark with slightly different iodine statusN Knudsen
Department of Internal Medicine I, Bispebjerg Hospital, DK 2400, Copenhagen, Denmark
Eur J Endocrinol 143:485-91. 2000..The pattern of thyroid dysfunction seems to depend on the iodine status of the population. Prevalence of thyroid dysfunction could be a parameter to consider when evaluating iodine deficiency disorders in a population...
