In this paper we present some Turán type inequalities for the probability density function (pdf) of the non-central chi-squared distribution, non-central chi distribution and Student distribution, respectively. Moreover, we improve a result of Laforgia and Natalini concerning a Turán type inequality for the modified Bessel functions of the second kind.
