This test measures Iodine levels in the blood and diagnoses deficiency or excess. Iodine is one of the most important minerals as adequate amounts are essential for proper thyroid function, as well as healthy functioning of the immune system and other organs such as the heart, liver and lungs.
Low iodine levels or high iodine levels can contribute to thyroid disorders such as hypothyroidism (low) and hyperthyroidism (high). Also, miscarriages and stillbirths can be a result of an iodine deficiency in pregnant women.
