The denotation of the concentration of the thyroxine, triiodothyronine and thyrotropin in the serum of the blood provides a accurate examination of the functioning of the gland. The number of 294 children at the ages from six to fifteen living in Debica and the surrounding area were examined. The control group consisted of 123 children (of the same age) without goitres. The concentration of the thyroid hormones and thyrotropin in the serum were determined. The blood cell count, the level of cholesterol, sugar, iron and the elecrophoretic decomposition of proteins were examined. Additionally the concentration of iodine in drinking water was determined in 10 randomly chosen towns of the region. The children with goitres were taller but their weight did not differ from those from the control group. The degree of concentration of thyroid hormones agreed with the norms, but the children with goitres had a lower level of concentration of thyroxine and higher values of triiodothyronine and thyrotropin. The children with goitres had lower values of hemoglobin and sugar.
