Abstract

Introduction: The aim of the study was to evaluate of efficiency of iodine prophylaxis based on obligatory model of salt iodization.
Material and methods: The study included 1444 children from the rural and urban area, with the proportional sex and age (8-12 years) distribution - 432 children in 1992 (before salt iodization), 558 children in 2000 and 454 children in 2005 (during salt iodization from 1996).
Results: The prevalence of goiter detected in children population in 1992 was 40% (recount by current criteria), in 2005 was reduced to 6% (p < 0.01). Parallely, median of urinary iodine concentration increased from 44 mg/l in 1992 to 107 mg/l (p < 0.01) in 2005. The increase of incidence of autoimmunological thyroid diseases is observed, especially chronic thyroiditis.
Conclusions: The study proves high efficiency of iodine prophylaxis in Wielkopolska Region, but it is still the area with mild iodine deficiency.
