#1 Iodine deficiency has been a long term problem there. Not all goiters are obvious. People with overdeveloped neck & shoulder muscles can have obscured goiters.
From this article (21 MB PDF:
It is more plausible that idiots were seldom
presented at dispensaries, whether they were goitrous, cretinous, or had any other sort of
illness. If families took them anywhere, it would have been to shrines, as they still do

Also: Simple, universal remedies were and are seductive. Iodine, once isolated, was
tried enthusiastically and injudiciously for all manner of ailments, provoking vigorous
condemnation when overdosing problems surfaced. A century later, David Marine and 0
P Kimball's comment, that "simple goiter is probably the easiest of all known diseases to
prevent" was willingly misinterpreted as "goitre is easy to prevent"-on a worldwide
basis. In practice, it did not prove easy, as Marine acknowledged after forty years of
effort. The simple technical solution (i.e. iodine prophylaxis via dietary supplement) to
what was perceived as a straightforward technical problem, made substantial progress in
ideal conditions. It was easily applied to docile populations who could be monitored daily,
such as laboratory mice or the schoolgirls at Akron, Ohio, with whom Marine and Kimball
worked. It was sensible to start with the easiest groups. To extrapolate directly from Akron
schoolgirls to Himalayan tribespeople was over-optimistic.

Extrapolating ANYTHING to Pak tribespeople is overoptimistic.
