THE VITAMIN D AND AUTOIMMUNE THYROIDITIS IN PEDIATRIC AGE
Keywords:Autoimmune thyroiditis, Pediatric age, Vitamin D
Autoimmune diseases of the thyroid gland, including autoimmune thyroiditis, are widespread diseases. Autoimmune thyroiditis (AT) is found within the pediatric age. The aim is to study vitamin D within pediatric age patients with autoimmune thyroiditis. The study showed that the vitamin D level is low within AT compared to the control group (p=0.017).
