Case Discussion on Role of Micronutrients in Thyroid

Micronutrients play a crucial role in thyroid function, supporting its hormonal regulation and overall health. Iodine, an essential micronutrient, is a key component of thyroid hormones, thyroxine (T4) and triiodothyronine (T3). Deficiency can lead to thyroid dysfunction and goiter. Selenium aids in the conversion of T4 to active T3 and protects the thyroid gland from oxidative stress. Zinc is necessary for thyroid hormone production and proper immune function. Iron is vital for thyroid peroxidase, an enzyme required for thyroid hormone synthesis. Adequate intake of these micronutrients through a balanced diet is essential for maintaining optimal thyroid function and preventing related disorders.
