Iodine With Creatinine Ratio Urine Test - 24 Hour
The iodine with creatinine ratio urine test is used to monitor conditions including iodine-induced hypothyroidism, autoimmune inflammation of the thyroid gland, and hyperthyroidism associated with high iodine intake.
Iodine is a trace element found in sea plants and vegetables that promotes good health. Iodine is important for the body and can be found in high amounts in the thyroid, liver, breast, lung, adrenal glands, and heart. Its key biological function is to generate thyroid hormones, which have major effects on cardiovascular health, metabolism, weight, and energy.
Determining how much iodine is good for the human body is one of the controversies in the field of iodine. There is currently no universally accepted iodine test that can assess optimum iodine dosing. Some experts believe the RDA (roughly 150 mcg per day) is sufficient, whereas others believe far higher quantities are needed and suggest supplementation.
