In this study measured serum triiodothyronine (T3), serum thyroxin], serum thyroid-stimulated hormone (TSH), Selenium (Se) levels in 31 patients with hyperthyroidism, 26 patients with hypothyroidism and 40 control subjects. The concentration of Se was significantly lower than normal in hyperthyroidism and lower than normal in hypothyroidism. There was a negative correlation with TSH, and negative correlation with T3 and negative correlation with T4. The result of this study suggests that the concentration of Se is abnormal in thyroid disease.
