Endemic goiter morbidity in Timis county after 30 years of iodine prophylaxis. A dynamic study

Endemic goiter morbidity in Timis county after 30 years of iodine prophylaxis. A dynamic study

Endocrinologie 18(2): 105-108

The dynamics of endemic goiter morbidity in Timiş county is evaluated comparing the studies carried out 30 years ago with the present-day ones. A positive correlation is found between the extension and severity of the endemic, on the one hand, and the iodine content of the drinking water sources, on the other. Eradication of the endemic has been achieved by borin gartesian wells (having a higher iodine content than dug wells), by intensive iodine prophylaxis and therapy as well as by the socioeconomic changes characterized by a high degree of pre-urbanization of the country-side.
