Abstract: The study design included several groups of patients, who were divided according various thyroid diseases. A comparative study of trace element values (copper, selenium, magnesium and zinc) in nails was performed. Low median selenium content, suggesting its low consumption, has been observed in all groups of the study. The level of selenium intake may be characterized as severe deficit. Moreover, most patients included in the study have reported mild deficits of manganese and copper intake and a moderate zinc deficiency.
