Abstract

Iodine deficiency was present in nearly all Czech Republic and various forms of iodine deficiency disorders (IDD) were common in past, especially euthyroid endemic goitre. After iodine supplementation of salt, started at the beginning of the fifties, a marked improvement was recorded (6). During last years some clinical findings focused our interest to this problem (8). Therefore, we recently reevaluated iodine intake and thyroid status in our country.
