    Thyroid function in Danish greenhouse workers. - Abstract

    BACKGROUND: From animal studies it is known that currently used pesticides can disturb thyroid function. METHODS: In the present study we investigated the thyroid function in 122 Danish greenhouse workers, to evaluate if greenhouse workers classified as highly exposed to pesticides experiences altered thyroid levels compared to greenhouse workers with lower exposure.

    Thyroid function in Danish greenhouse workers

    Thyroid function was only marginally different among Danish greenhouse workers with different levels of exposure to pesticides. The only difference observed was a moderate reduction in FT4 level among the greenhouse workers working in greenhouses where the spraying load were high.

Subclinical thyroid disease is defined by abnormalserum thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) butnor-mal T4 and T3 levels and does not always require treatment, whereas persons with clinical thyroid disease have abnormal serum TSH, T4, and T3 levels and require

    Another study evaluating thyroid function in pesticide-exposed Danish greenhouse workers showed that the workers had a 32% increase in serum TSH and a 5%–9% decrease in T3 and T4 levels in the spring compared with the fall . The Danish greenhouse workers were exposed to approximately 60 chemicals, a combination of insecticides, fungicides

    Thyroid nodules and thyroid autoimmunity in the context

    Evidence suggests that in most industrialized countries autoimmune disorders, including chronic lymphocytic thyroiditis, are increasing. This increase parallels the one regarding differentiated thyroid cancer, the increment of which is mainly due to the papillary histotype. A number of studies have pointed to an association between chronic lymphocytic thyroiditis and differentiated thyroid

Free and total T4, total T3, and TSH were the most commonly examined biomarkers of thyroid function, while few studies examined pesticide exposure in relation to free T3 (Manfo et al., 2012, Toft et al., 2006, Wohlfahrt-Veje et al., 2011) and TBG (Smith, 1984, Zhang et al., 2013).

    Pesticides can act as endocrine disruptors by different mechanisms including inhibition of iodine absorption, increases in thyroid hormone clearance, decreased cellular uptake of thyroid hormones, or changes in expression of thyroid hormone regulated genes. This study examined how exposure to pesticides impacts thyroid hormone levels, thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH), triiodothyronine (T3
