Correction of liver functional state in patients with autoimmune thyroid diseases

Main Article Content

V.I. Pankiv


The lecture describes the correlation between autoimmune thyroid diseases and liver functional state. The comprehensive method for the treatment of these patients using ursodeoxycholic acid (Ursofalk) is described. Author’s experience of Ursofalk application allows recommending the preparation at a dose 15 mg/kg body weight daily divided into three doses, during three months, in patients with autoimmune thyroid diseases.
