Iodine Panel in Dried Urine
Iodine deficiency is estimated to occur to some degree in nearly 10% of the U.S. population, often because people cut down on iodine-containing salt to help keep blood pressure low. Iodine is an essential nutrient because it is a component of thyroid hormones, so a deficiency can reduce thyroid hormone synthesis leading to hypothyroidism. Conversely, too much iodine consumption can also cause thyroid problems. Iodine testing allows for the determination of iodine status based on CDC and WHO guidelines for thyroid as well as extra-thyroidal sufficiency.
