Selenium supplementation in patients with autoimmune thyroiditis decreases thyroid peroxidase antibodies concentrations.
... Study Title: Selenium and Thyroid Autoantibodies Study Abstract In areas with severe selenium deficiency there is a higher incidence of thyroiditis due to a decreased activity of selenium-dependent glutathione peroxidase activity within thyroid cells. Selenium-dependent enzymes also have several modifying effects on the immune system. Therefore, even mild selenium deficiency may contribute to the development and maintenance of autoimmune thyroid diseases. We performed a blinded, placebo-controlled, prospective study in female patients (n= 70; mean age, 47.5+/- 0.7 yr) with autoimmune thyroiditis and thyroid peroxidase ...

... Byron J. Richards, Board Certified Clinical Nutritionist Scientists now report that many people are likely to benefit from selenium1 supplementation. Selenium is the key mineral that enables the conversion of thyroid hormone from T4 to T3 (the biologically active form). Selenium is also required to make the antioxidant enzyme glutathione peroxidase, which protects the thyroid gland, and includes protecting it from thyroid autoimmune problems. Earlier studies clearly demonstrate that 200 mcg of selenium per day can reduce the level of thyroid autoantibodies2 by 40 percent. A recent case study ...

Richards, Board Certified Clinical Nutritionist The National Cancer Institute's (NCI) SELECT study( Sel enium and Vitamin E C ancer Prevention T rial) for prostate cancer in men was halted this week after initial data analysis showed that selenium and vitamin E, taken alone or together for an average of five years, did not prevent prostate cancer. Since the goal of SELECT was to prove a 25% risk reduction, and since early data suggested such a result was unlikely, the trial was stopped. Furthermore, ...
Fenvalerate Exposure Alters Thyroid Hormone Status in Selenium- and/or Iodine-Deficient Rats.

Study Title: Selenium and Iodine Protect Thyroid Study Abstract Considering the potential adverse effects of selenium and iodine deficiencies, and taking into account the widespread but often careless use of pyrethroid insecticides and their possible endocrine-disrupting effects, this study was undertaken to investigate the effects of fenvalerate on thyroid hormone parameters in both healthy and selenium- and/or iodine-deficient rats. Fenvalerate exposure had no effect on the TT4 levels of healthy controls but caused significant increases both in iodine deficiency (ID) and selenium plus iodine deficiency (ISeD), and ...

Selenium and the Thyroid: A Close-Knit Connection

Study Title: Selenium and the Thyroid: A Close-Knit Connection Study Abstract Context: The recent recognition that the essential trace element selenium is incorporated as selenocysteine in all three deiodinases has decisively confirmed the clear-cut link between selenium and thyroid function. It has additionally been established that the thyroid contains more selenium than any other tissue and that selenium deficiency aggravates the manifestation of endemic myxedematous cretinism and autoimmune thyroid disease.Evidence Acquisition: Clinical reports as well as a large number of biochemical articles linking selenium to thyroid have been considered. Interventional, prospective, ...

... Study Title: Selenium is Needed to Prevent Disease Study Abstract The triage theory proposes that modest deficiency of any vitamin or mineral (V /M) could increase age-related diseases. V/M-dependent proteins required for short-term survival and/or reproduction (i.e., "essential") are predicted to be protected on V/M deficiency over other "nonessential" V/M-dependent proteins needed only for long-term health. The result is accumulation of insidious damage, increasing disease risk. We successfully tested the theory against published evidence on ...
