Data derived from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES III) suggest that about one in 300 persons in the United States has Hypothyroidism there is a 4 – 5 % prevalence of Hypothyroidism in the developed world. The prevalence of Hypothyroidism in urban India is 10.95 %. A major portion of Hypothyroidism (approximately 3.47 %) remains undetected.
