Thyroid hormone concentrations in selenium deficient and selenium sufficient cattle



Thyroid hormone concentrations in selenium deficient and selenium sufficient cattle



Research in Veterinary Science 45(1): 122-123



Selenium deficient calves when compared to selenium supplemented calves had increased plasma thyroxine concentrations and decreased plasma tri-iodothyronine concentrations. These changes in the selenium deficient calves were accompanied by significant increases in plasma urea and creatinine concentrations and decreased plasma alkaline phosphatase activity. The demonstration that low selenium status can cause imbalances in thyroid hormone metabolism may provide an explanation for some of the effects of the deficiency.
