However, Magri et al (23) reported a positive correlation between tissue stiffness and serum TPOAb
and concluded that TPOAb
values of the patients could affect SWV measurements.
Blood samples are taken and sent for TSH, FT3, FT4, TPOAb
levels and are standardized according to different trimesters of pregnancy.
and TgAb levels were significantly decreased in patients treated with the combined myo-inositol/selenium after six months.
The positive rates of TPOAb
and TgAb of pregnant women in the observation group were higher than in the control group (P<0.05).
There was a positive correlation between thyroid volume and serum fT4, fT3, TRAb, TPOAb
, and TgAb levels (p=0.001, r=0.426; p=0.001, r=0.50; p=0.04, r=0.26; p=0.001, r=0.42; p=0.001 r=0.42; respectively; Table 3).
In this perspective, and in view of the immunomodulatory action of vitamin D and the role of selenium in thyroid metabolism, the objective of this research was to investigate the scientific evidence of the relationship of these nutrients with hormone levels, TPOAb
antibody and enzyme activity, as well as the effect of supplementation on Hashimoto's thyroiditis.
Currently, most of the studies concerning the thyroid tissue and CVR focused on thyroid hormones (i.e., TSH, [FT.sub.3], and [FT.sub.4]) instead of the direct role of thyroid autoimmunity (i.e., TPOAb
positivity and TgAb positivity).
Serum levels of TSH, FT3, FT4, TgAb, and TPOAb
were measured using automated chemiluminescent immunoassays (Architect i2000SR; Abbott Laboratories, Chicago, IL).

TgAb and TPOAb
were determined by electrochemiluminescence immunoassay (ECLIA) using Roche ECLusys Anti-Tg and Anti-TPO (Roche Diagnostics GmbH, Mannheim, Germany).
A previous study reported that in patients with primary insomnia, concentrations of TSH, T3, and T4 were significantly decreased after insomnia treatment. Therefore, physicians are encouraged to collect a detailed sleep history if individuals have occasional, mildly isolated TSH elevation, especially if TPOAb

and iodine status (NHANES 2007-2008).

After discovery of TI, thyroid function needs to be first evaluated by assaying TSH (Thyroid Stimulating Hormone), eventually FreeT4 (Free Levothyroxin) and also autoimmunity profile by testing blood TPOAb
(anti-thyreoperoxidase antibodies).14,34 Any function anomaly requires first medical treatment while euthyroidism status involves a fine needle aspiration if the minimum diameter of the TN is 1cm or if a highly suspect ultrasound pattern is identified.14,35 Modern techniques of detection used on patients with a prior malignancy increased the ratio of TI discovery and controversies are still presented related to specific protocols for interpretation of accidental thyroid findings and for differentiation of a malignancy.31,34,35
