The Iodine 24 Hour Urine Test measures the amount of iodine excreted from the body. It monitors a person’s exposure to iodine and evaluates for iodine deficiency disorders, excessive iodine intake or iodine in the workplace. Evaluating a urine collection over 24 hours is more accurate than a single urine test collection as iodine levels can fluctuate throughout the day.
Anyone who wants to check their iodine levels; Pregnant and nursing women; Follow-up to irregular results from thyroid tests such as TSH, T3, and T4)
Patients must urinate at 8 a.m. and discard the specimen, then collect all urine in a 24-hour period, ending with the final collection at 8 a.m. the next morning.
