"I demonstrated for the first time, that although biochemical parameters of functioning of the thyroid gland (hormones: TSH, fT3, fT4) were located in appropriate to the age of patients norms, it is a level of iodine at autistic children was indeed reduced, and the level of iodine in urine correlated with some areas from the CARS scale for of specific age groups of children. Examinations showed, that at maturing boys (age group of 11-17 years) level in urine negatively he correlated iodine with the so-called general final sensation of the clinician, described as CARS 15. This result can suggest, that metabolic balance of iodine in the body at such patients she is disturbed what is being manifested as disorders autistic.
From analysis of the ROC curve (Receiver Operating Characteristic) results, that amongst of parameters measured in the examination, i.e. the level jodurii along with thyroid hormones, it is exactly a level of iodine in urine is a most tender and peculiar parameter (AUC = 0.94)."
