Selenium is used as a dietary supplement mainly in the treatment of selenium deficiency affecting young women and children with  Keshan disease. It is also used for treatment of osteoarthiritis associated with poor selenium levels in body called Kashin-Beck Disease. Selenium supplements are also used in patients with HIV/ AIDS to maintain the adequate selenium levels.

How it works

Selenium is a trace element that is essential in small amounts in the body. Selenium is important in the functioning of selenium dependent chemical (enzymes) in the body called as selanoproteins. Selenium is an integral part of glutathione peroxidases (GPx) that act as potent antioxidant (substance that protects against cell damage) by neutralizing the free radicals (waste products formed in the body during energy production) such as reactive oxygen and nitrogen species. Thus selenium participates in vital redox reactions of the body. Also, a selenoprotein (iodothyronine deiodinases) is essential for the conversion of thyroxine (T4) to the biologically active thyroid hormone triiodothyronine (T3) thereby indicating the importance of selenium in thyroid hormone functioning.

Common side effects

Nervous system disorder, Fatigue, Garlic breath odor, Irritation, Rash, Hair loss, Nail disorder

Frequently asked questions for CANDID-TV


Q. Is clotrimazole a steroid/ used for thrush/ good for ringworm/ good for toenail fungus?
Clotrimazole is an antifungal medication and not a steroid. It is used for treating thrush, ringworm. It may be used for toenail fungus; however its efficacy in this case is not completely established. Patients should follow the advice of the doctor regarding its use.
Q. Is clotrimazole available over the counter?

Q. Is clotrimazole better than miconazole?
Although clotrimazole and miconazole are different drugs, they work in similar ways. Both are used for treatment of fungal infection, primarily yeast. Despite these similarities, they are often used in different parts of the body and they have different active ingredients and so cannot be compared. Both medications work well, but one of them may work better for some people than others. Check with your doctor for more details.
Q. Is candida a steroid/ curable/ contagious/ a STD/ dangerous/ curable/ a steroid cream/ infection dangerous?
Candida is a yeast, a form of fungus. It causes infections such as candidiasis or thrush in humans and other animals. Individuals with Candida infections are not usually contagious, though in some settings immunocompromised people can catch the infection. The infection does not usually spread by sexual contact. Candida infection is curable but if not treated early it can result in a serious infection.

Q. Can I take selenium with calcium?
