Iodine deficiency is generally recognized as the most commonly preventable cause of mental retardation and the most common cause of endocrinopathy (goiter and primary hypothyroidism). Iodine deficiency becomes particularly critical in pregnancy due to the consequences for neurological damage during fetal development as well as during lactation. The safety of therapeutic doses of iodine above the established safe upper limit of 1 mg is evident in the lack of toxicity in the Japanese population… Expand

Iodine, Iodine metabolism and Iodine deficiency disorders revisited
TLDR
This article makes an attempt to revisit this important topic in light of recent advances and provides a comprehensive account of the subject. Expand
Iodine Deficiency Disorders
TLDR
Iodine deficiency disorders are among the most significant public health problems in the world at the present time, especially among children and pregnant women, considered the highest risk population, and in many countries, there is no awareness of the associated problems or of the iodine status in the population. Expand
Iodine Supplementation and Monitoring to Ensure Patient Health and Safety
TLDR
In order to avoid adverse effects such as hyperthyroidism, and goiter, iodine supplementation requires proper monitoring of thyroid hormones (TSH, serum total T4, and free T3), with more frequent assessments during the first year of supplementation. Expand
Iodine Status in the Colombian Population and the Impact of Universal Salt Iodization: A Double-Edged Sword?
TLDR
This review analyzes universal salt iodization programs worldwide, particularly their impact on the thyroid gland and the results of the studies conducted in Colombia following the implementation of such strategy. Expand
HYPOTHYROIDISM AND GOITER IN A YOUNG MALE WITH SUSPECTED DIETARY IODINE DEFICIENCY FOLLOWED BY THYROTOXICOSIS AFTER IODINE SUPPLEMENTATION.
TLDR
Hypothyroidism and goiter due to IDD should be suspected in the setting of poor dietary intake and regular thyroid labs should be done to monitor for hyperthyroidism that can develop after iodine supplementation. Expand
Iodine or Iodide? A Laboratory Evaluation of the Content of ­Powdered Iodine Supplements
Background: Iodine is a vital micronutrient essential for thyroid hormone synthesis and neurological development in utero and in the early postpartum period. Maternal iodine deficiency duringExpand
Iodine and Cognition in Young Adults: A Randomised, Placebo-Controlled Trial
Iodine is a micronutrient which is essential to the production of thyroid hormones. Thyroid hormone functions are prevalent throughout the human body, but one of the most important functions is theExpand
The Comparison of Thyroxine versus Thyroxine plus Oral Iodine in the Treatment of Congenital Hypothyroidism due to Iodine Deficiency
TLDR
The addition of oral iodine to L-thyroxine-T-T4 treatment provided no benefit compared to treatment with <smlcap>L-T<sub>4</sub> alone, and there was no significant difference between the two groups in respect to falling levels of fT-3 and TSH, the rate of increase offT-4 levels or the shrinkage rate of thyroid volume.
