The epizootiology and pathogenesis of thyroid hyperplasia in coho salmon (Oncorhynchus kisutch) in Lake Ontario. (1/1350)

The thyroid glands of coho salmon collected at different stages of their anadromous migration exhibited progressive and extensive hyperplasia and hypertrophy. The incidence of overt nodule formation rose from 5% in fish collected in August to 24% in fish collected in October. The histological picture of the goiters was similar to that found in thiourea-treated teleosts and thiouracil-treated mammals. There was a concomitant, significant decrease in serum thyroxine and triiodothyronine values between September and October (thyroxine, 1.0+/-0.3 mug/100 ml and 0.4 mug/100 ml in September and October, respectively; triiodothyronine, 400.3+/-51.6 ng/100 ml and 80.2 ng/100 ml in September and October, respectively) and marked hypertrophy and hyperplasia of thyrotrophs. These data indicate a progressive hypothyroid condition which, although it may be linked to iodide deficiency, may well be enhanced by other environmental factors. The evidence for involvement of other factors is discussed.  (+info)

Thyroid volumes and urinary iodine in Swiss school children, 17 years after improved prophylaxis of iodine deficiency. (2/1350)

Salt iodine content in Switzerland was raised from 7.5 to 15 mg per kg in 1980, and since then dietary iodine intake has been considered to be sufficient, even though a slight decrease due to imported food has recently been reported. The aim of this study was to establish normal values for thyroid volumes of school children who can be assumed to have had a sufficient iodine intake all their lifetime. Moreover. the present investigation was undertaken to verify that iodine sufficiency had been achieved equally in two regions each served by one of the two Swiss salt producers. Mean iodine concentration in urine spot samples from school children was 16.1 microg/dl, and it was identical in both the city of Lausanne (n=215) and the city of Solothurn (n=208). Thus it can be stated that in both cities (served by two different salt producers) iodine intake is equal and sufficient. Accordingly, thyroid volumes measured by ultrasound in school children aged 6 to 16 years were the same in both Lausanne (n=202) and Solothurn (n=207). Moreover, the age-adjusted median volumes at the 97th percentiles closely agree with and validate provisional international reference values recently proposed by the World Health Organisation and by the International Council for Control of Iodine Deficiency Disease.  (+info)

Folding of apocytochrome c induced by the interaction with negatively charged lipid micelles proceeds via a collapsed intermediate state. (3/1350)

Unfolded apocytochrome c acquires an alpha-helical conformation upon interaction with lipid. Folding kinetic results below and above the lipid's CMC, together with energy transfer measurements of lipid bound states, and salt-induced compact states in solution, show that the folding transition of apocytochrome c from the unfolded state in solution to a lipid-inserted helical conformation proceeds via a collapsed intermediate state (I(C)). This initial compact state is driven by a hydrophobic collapse of the polypeptide chain in the absence of the heme group and may represent a heme-free analogue of an early compact intermediate detected on the folding pathway of cytochrome c in solution. Insertion into the lipid phase occurs via an unfolding step of I(C) through a more extended state associated with the membrane surface (I(S)). While I(C) appears to be as compact as salt-induced compact states in solution with substantial alpha-helix content, the final lipid-inserted state (Hmic) is as compact as the unfolded state in solution at pH 5 and has an alpha-helix content which resembles that of native cytochrome c.  (+info)

Perspectives from micronutrient malnutrition elimination/eradication programmes. (4/1350)

Micronutrient malnutrition cannot be eradicated, but the elimination and control of iron, vitamin A and iodine deficiencies and their health-related consequences as public health problems are currently the targets of global programmes. Remarkable progress is occurring in the control of goitre and xerophthalmia, but iron-deficiency anaemia (IDA) has been less responsive to prevention and control efforts. Subclinical consequences of micronutrient deficiencies, i.e. "hidden hunger", include compromised immune functions that increase the risk of morbidity and mortality, impaired cognitive development and growth, and reduced reproductive and work capacity and performance. The implications are obvious for human health and national and global economic and social development. Mixes of affordable interventions are available which, when appropriately adapted to resource availability and context, are proven to be effective. These include both food-based interventions, particularly fortification programmes, such as salt iodization, and use of concentrated micronutrient supplements. A mix of accompanying programmes for infection control, community participation, including education, communication and information exchange, and private sector involvement are lessons learned for overcoming deterrents and sustaining progress towards elimination.  (+info)

Candidate noninfectious disease conditions. (5/1350)

Important micronutrient deficiencies in at-risk populations can be addressed simultaneously with programmatically cost-effective results. Because of the interaction between many micronutrients, this would also be biologically effective. With adequate investment and political support, the chances of eliminating iodine deficiency as a problem in women of reproductive age and young children and of eliminating vitamin A deficiency as a problem in young children in the future are high. To eliminate iron deficiency and folic-acid-dependent neural tube defects (FADNTDs) in low-income populations, a new set of approaches will have to be developed. These same approaches, if successful, could be used to tackle other important micronutrient deficiencies.  (+info)

Effect of iron-, iodine-, and beta-carotene-fortified biscuits on the micronutrient status of primary school children: a randomized controlled trial. (6/1350)

BACKGROUND: Deficiencies of iron, iodine, and vitamin A are prevalent worldwide and can affect the mental development and learning ability of schoolchildren. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to determine the effect of micronutrient-fortified biscuits on the micronutrient status of primary school children. DESIGN: Micronutrient status was assessed in 115 children aged 6-11 y before and after consumption of biscuits (fortified with iron, iodine, and beta-carotene) for 43 wk over a 12-mo period and was compared with that in a control group (n = 113) who consumed nonfortified biscuits. Cognitive function, growth, and morbidity were assessed as secondary outcomes. RESULTS: There was a significant between-group treatment effect on serum retinol, serum ferritin, serum iron, transferrin saturation, and urinary iodine (P <0.0001) and in hemoglobin and hematocrit (P <0.05). The prevalence of low serum retinol concentrations (<0.70 micromol/L) decreased from 39.1% to 12.2%, of low serum ferritin concentrations (<20 microg/L) from 27.8% to 13.9%, of anemia (hemoglobin <120 g/L) from 29.6% to 15.6%, and of low urinary iodine concentrations (<100 microg/L) from 97.5% to 5.4%. There was a significant between-group treatment effect (P <0.05) in cognitive function with the digit span forward task (short-term memory). Fewer school days were missed in the intervention than in the control group because of respiratory- (P = 0.097) and diarrhea-related (P = 0.013) illnesses. The intervention had no effect on anthropometric status [corrected]. CONCLUSIONS: Fortified biscuits resulted in a significant improvement in the micronutrient status of primary school children from a poor rural community and also appeared to have a favorable effect on morbidity and cognitive function [corrected].  (+info)

Amylopectinosis in fetal and neonatal Quarter Horses. (7/1350)

Three Quarter Horses, a stillborn filly (horse No. 1), a female fetus aborted at approximately 6 months of gestation (horse No. 2), and a 1-month-old colt that had been weak at birth (horse No. 3), had myopathy characterized histologically by large spherical or ovoid inclusions in skeletal and cardiac myofibers. Smaller inclusions were also found in brain and spinal cord and in some cells of all other tissues examined. These inclusions were basophilic, red-purple after staining with periodic acid-Schiff (both before and after digestion with diastase), and moderately dark blue after staining with toluidine blue. The inclusions did not react when stained with Congo red. Staining with iodine ranged from pale blue to black. Their ultrastructural appearance varied from amorphous to somewhat filamentous. On the basis of staining characteristics and diastase resistance, we concluded that these inclusions contained amylopectin. A distinctly different kind of inclusion material was also present in skeletal muscle and tongue of horse Nos. 1 and 3. These inclusions were crystalline with a sharply defined ultrastructural periodicity. The crystals were eosinophilic and very dark blue when stained with toluidine blue but did not stain with iodine. Crystals sometimes occurred freely within the myofibers but more often were encased by deposits of amylopectin. This combination of histologic and ultrastructural features characterizes a previously unreported storage disease in fetal and neonatal Quarter Horses, with findings similar to those of glycogen storage disease type IV. We speculate that a severe inherited loss of glycogen brancher enzyme activity may be responsible for these findings. The relation of amylopectinosis to the death of the foals is unknown.  (+info)

A negative iodine balance is found in healthy neonates compared with neonates with thyroid agenesis. (8/1350)

We studied the effects of the presence or absence of the thyroid gland on the iodine metabolism and excretion in term Dutch newborns by performing a retrospective study of the urinary iodine excretion in 193 term newborns with abnormal congenital hypothyroidism screening results. Thirty-six euthyroid newborns with decreased thyroxine-binding globulin levels were compared with 157 hypothyroid patients, 54 due to thyroid agenesis and 103 due to thyroid dysgenesis. A significant difference in the urinary iodine excretion was observed between the agenesis group (mean: 28 micrograms/24 h) and the euthyroid newborns (mean: 46 micrograms/24 h, P=0.001). In conclusion, healthy, euthyroid, term newborns excreted more iodine in their urine than newborns with thyroid agenesis. These results strongly indicated the existence of a temporarily negative iodine balance: the excretion of iodine prevailed over the intake and the newborn's thyroidal iodine, stored during pregnancy, could be used for thyroxine synthesis in the postnatal period. Since healthy term neonates were able to maintain adequate plasma free thyroxine concentrations under normal TSH stimulation, the prenatally acquired iodine stores could be considered sufficiently high to compensate for the transient postnatal losses.  (+info)

To address mild iodine deficiency in Australia, a mandatory fortification program of iodised salt in bread was implemented in 2009. This study aimed to determine factors associated with achieving an adequate dietary iodine intake in the Australian population post-fortification, and to assess whether bread consumption patterns affect iodine intake in high-risk groups. Using nationally representative data of repeated 24-h dietary recalls from the 2011-2012 Australian National Nutrition and Physical Activity Survey, dietary iodine intakes and food group contributions were compared by age, socioeconomic status (SES), and geographical remoteness (N = 7735). The association between fortified bread intake and adequacy of iodine intake (meeting age and sex-specific Estimated Average Requirements) was investigated using logistic regression models in women of childbearing age 14-50 years (n = 3496) and children aged 2-18 years (n = 1772). The effect of SES on bread consumption was further investigated in a sub
The main focus of previous studies regarding iodine deficiency was to establish severe iodine deficiency models and investigate the impact of iodine deficiency on offspring development. Our study established a marginal iodine deficiency model in rats based on the following principles: in the normal physiological status, there were no symptoms of iodine deficiency, but during pregnancy, the requirement for iodine increased, resulting in iodine deficiency. This study also investigated the changes in iodine metabolism and thyroid function, as well as the influences of maternal marginal iodine deficiency on offspring neural intelligence development and the related molecular mechanisms.. The marginal iodine deficiency in our study was very mild, and therefore before pregnancy the thyroid was auto-regulated and had no functional changes. However, after pregnancy the iodine requirement increased significantly, which resulted in over stimulation of the thyroid and changes in thyroid function. We found ...
BACKGROUND: Both insufficient and excess iodine may produce thyroid disease. After salt iodization in China, the median urine iodine concentration (UIC) of children aged 8-10 years appeared adequate. However, it is unknown whether dietary changes due to rapid economic development in Shanghai have affected whole population iodine nutrition.. OBJECTIVE: To assess dietary iodine intake, UIC and the prevalence of thyroid disease in the general population of Shanghai.. DESIGN: A cross-sectional survey was conducted with general participants aged 5-69 years (n = 7,904) plus pregnant and lactating women (n = 380 each) selected by stratified multistage sampling. The iodine concentrations in their salt, drinking water and urine were measured. Daily iodine intake was estimated using the total diet study approach. Serum thyroid hormone concentrations and thyroid-related antibodies were measured and thyroid ultrasonography was performed.. RESULTS: The median iodine concentration in salt was 29.5 mg/kg, and ...
Mild to moderate iodine deficiency during pregnancy has been associated with adverse neurodevelopmental outcomes in offspring. Few research studies to date combine assessment of urinary iodine (UIC and/or ICr), biomarkers that best reflect dietary intake, with reported dietary intake of iodine rich foods in their assessment of iodine deficiency. Thus, a systematic review was conducted to incorporate both these important measures. Using PRISMA guidelines, a comprehensive search was conducted in three electronic databases (EMBASE®, MedLine® and Web of Science®) from January 1970-March 2021. Quality assessment was undertaken using the Newcastle Ottawa Scale. Eligible studies included reported assessment of iodine status through urinary iodine (UIC and/or ICr) and/or dietary intake measures in pregnancy alongside neurodevelopmental outcomes measured in the children. Data extracted included study author, design, sample size, country, gestational age, child age at testing, cognitive tests, urinary iodine
Objective: To determine the iodine status of participants in the Aboriginal Birth Cohort Study who resided in the Darwin Health Region (DHR) in the Top End of the Northern Territory prior to the introduction of mandatory iodine fortification of bread.. Design, setting and participants: Participants in our study had been recruited at birth and were followed up at a mean age of 17.8 years. Spot urine samples were collected and assessed for iodine concentration at a reference laboratory. The median urinary iodine concentration (MUIC) of residents of the DHR was calculated and compared with international criteria for iodine status. Analyses were conducted for subgroups living in urban areas (Darwin-Palmerston) and remote communities (rural with an Aboriginal council). We collected a repeat sample in a subset of participants to explore the impact of within-person variation on the results.. Main outcome measure: MUIC for residents of the DHR.. Results: Urine specimens were provided by 376 ...
Iodine deficiency is one of the causes of goiter (hypertrophy of the thyroid gland as it tries to make more thyroid hormone in the absence of iodine). Physically, goiter appears as an abnormal enlargement of the thyroid gland in the neck. Other causes of goiter include autoimmune thyroiditis, excess iodine, other hormonal disorders, radiation exposure, infectious causes, or inborn errors of metabolism. Although goiter due to low iodine intake is rare in developed countries, it may occur in regions with endemic low iodine levels. To avoid iodine deficiency in the United States, table salt is enriched with iodine (iodized salt), and iodine is added to cattle feed and used as a dough conditioner. Iodine supplementation is generally not recommended in developed countries where sufficient iodine intake is common. Excess iodine can actually cause medical complications (including goiter). Iodine supplementation should be considered in cases of known iodine deficiency and should be administered with ...

Estimation of the Prevalence of Inadequate and Excessive Iodine Intakes in School-Age Children from the Adjusted Distribution of Urinary Iodine Concentrations from Population ...
Iodine food composition data of Norwegian foods have been sparse and knowledge about different dietary iodine sources limited. We compiled a comprehensive iodine food composition database and estimated dietary iodine intake among adults in the latest Norwegian national dietary survey (Norkost 3). The iodine content of food and beverages were compiled using international guidelines and standards. Iodine content of 3259 food items were compiled, including analytical values, values from other food composition databases, estimated values, and values that were based on recipes. Estimated iodine intake in the Norkost 3 population ranged from 15 to 1462 µg/day. Men had significantly higher intake of iodine than women (p < 0.001). The proportion of men and women with estimated iodine intake below average requirement was 19% and 33%, respectively. In young women, 46% had estimated iodine intakes below average requirement and a high probability of inadequate iodine intake. Several dietary sources
Iodine is found in some, but not all, soils and is needed for proper brain development. Without it, children suffer low IQ, stunted growth and adults get goitres. While Australia has never suffered extreme cases, a national study has shown an alarming drop in iodine levels in children in the past five years. Globally, 2.2 billion people live in iodine-deficient areas and Australia is no longer an exception. Professor Creswell Eastman, from the Australian Centre for Iodine Deficiency Disorders (IDD) was involved in an Australian study testing the iodine levels of over 1700 school children in NSW, Victoria and Tasmania. The study showed a staggering 50% have been found to suffer from some degree of iodine deficiency. Children with IDD can suffer from stunted growth, apathy, mental retardation, impaired motor functions, speech impediments, and loss of hearing. There is also a possible link to ADHD.. Australians iodine intake is currently half what it was five years ago, but most are unaware that a ...
BACKGROUND: In many low-income countries, children are at high risk of iodine deficiency disorders, including brain damage. In the early 1990s, Tanzania, a country that previously suffered from moderate to severe iodine deficiency, adopted universal salt iodation (USI) as an intervention strategy, but its impact remained unknown. METHODS: We report on the first national survey in mainland Tanzania, conducted in 2004 to assess the extent to which iodated salt was used and its apparent impact on the total goitre prevalence (TGP) and urinary iodine concentrations (UIC) among the schoolchildren after USI was initiated. In 2004, a cross-sectional goitre survey was conducted; covering 140,758 schoolchildren aged 6 - 18 years were graded for goitre according to new WHO goitre classification system. Comparisons were made with district surveys conducted throughout most of the country during the 1980s and 90s. 131,941 salt samples from households were tested for iodine using rapid field test kits. UIC was ...

The main objectives of the survey were (1) to measure urinary iodine concentration in school children, and (2) estimate the coverage of adequately iodated salt in their households.. The survey showed that Zambia has maintained the remarkable progress achieved since the introduction of Universal Salt Iodization. Only 14% of the individuals had low urinary iodine concentration, which confirms that iodine deficiency is not a significant public health problem in Zambia.. ...
Following a request from the European Commission, the Panel on Dietetic Products, Nutrition and Allergies (NDA) derived Dietary Reference Values (DRVs) for iodine, which are provided as Adequate Intake (AI). Iodine is essential for the synthesis of thyroid hormones. Through these hormones, iodine has an important role in energy-yielding metabolism and many other physiological processes. Iodine deficiency is associated with an increased frequency of goitre and hypothyroidism in a population. The AI for iodine is based on a large epidemiological study in European school-aged children showing that goitre prevalence is lowest for a urinary iodine concentration above around 100 µg/L. From this study, a urinary iodine concentration of ≥ 100 µg/L has been accepted as the threshold indicating sufficient iodine intake of school-aged children. In the absence of similar suitable data for other age groups it is proposed that this threshold also be applied for adults, infants and young children. Taking ...
BACKGROUND: Excessive iodine intake and viral infection are recognized as both critical factors associated with autoimmune thyroid diseases. Toll-like receptors (TLRs) have been reported to play an important role in autoimmune and inflammatory disorders. In this study, we aimed to clarify the possible mechanism of TLR3 involved in polyinosine-polycytidylic acid (poly(I:C)) promoting excessive iodine intake induced thyroiditis in non-obese diabetic (NOD) mice. METHODS: Both NOD and BALB/c mice were randomly assigned to four groups: control group (n = 5), high iodine intake (HI) group (n = 7), poly(I:C) group (n = 7) and combination of excessive iodine and poly(I:C) injection (HIP) group (n = 7 ...
Iodine Deficiency. By Robert Sarver. Dr. David Brownstein has a US medical practice dealing primarily with thyroid patients. He has been quite successful treating hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism with the iodine/iodide supplement Iodoral that is available over the Internet without prescription.. Dr. Brownstein believes that the usual thyroid medication prescribed by doctors is the wrong treatment because it does not deal with the underlying iodine deficiency problem. All cells in the body need iodine for proper functioning.. All glands (thyroid, adrenal, etc.) especially need iodine for the production of hormones. Dr. Brownstein believes that iodine deficiency is a major cause of breast cancer and other diseases of the reproductive organs such as ovarian, uterus and prostrate cysts and cancers.. Iodine levels in US soil have fallen 50 per cent over the past 50 years and soil in the US is deficient in iodine. The Great Lakes region has some of lowest soil iodine levels in the world and this ...
Globally, in 2011, 32 countries and 1.88 billion people remained iodine deficient, including 241 million schoolchildren, who had insufficient dietary iodine intake.5 Salt iodisation has been recognised as the most effective and cost-efficient strategy to prevent IDD because salt is consumed daily by everybody and by all age groups.6 USI was conducted in the Zhejiang Province from 1995. Since October 2000, the iodisation level was set at 35 mg/kg. Presently, surveillance of iodine nutritional status is mainly aimed at school-aged children4 because they are a convenient population, easy to reach through school-based surveys and usually representative of the general population. In this study, with the multistage cluster sampling method, all members of the sampled households were investigated covering all age groups. We have known that participants who were the main labour migrants in the rural areas may influence the constituent ratio of age and this situation often exists in the survey. So we ...
BACKGROUND Iodine is an essential component of thyroid hormones; either low or high intake may lead to thyroid disease. We observed an increase in the prevalence of overt hypothyroidism, subclinical hypothyroidism, and autoimmune thyroiditis with increasing iodine intake in China in cohorts from three regions with different levels of iodine intake: mildly deficient (median urinary iodine excretion, 84 microg per liter), more than adequate (median, 243 microg per liter), and excessive (median, 651 microg per liter). Participants enrolled in a baseline study in 1999, and during the five-year follow-up through 2004, we examined the effect of regional differences in iodine intake on the incidence of thyroid disease. METHODS Of the 3761 unselected subjects who were enrolled at baseline, 3018 (80.2 percent) participated in this follow-up study. Levels of thyroid hormones and thyroid autoantibodies in serum, and iodine in urine, were measured and B-mode ultrasonography of the thyroid was performed at
Gemstone energy spectrum CT can be used to effectively determine the iodine content of the thyroid using iodine-based substance-separation images transformed from the X-ray attenuation curve. Errors due to inaccuracies of the CT values can be avoided, and accurate measurements of the iodine levels in the body can be obtained. Based on the results of specimen imaging studies by Li et al. [21], dual-energy CT can be considered as a promising quantitative approach for the differentiation of malignant and benign thyroid nodules. In the present study, the results of analysis of normal thyroid glands revealed no statistically significant differences in iodine content between the left and right thyroid lobes; however, significant differences in thyroid iodine content were observed between the male and female subjects, which might be associated with the differences in endocrine hormonal levels between the two sexes. We also found a gradual decline in the thyroid iodine content with increasing age, which ...
BACKGROUND/OBJECTIVES: Despite the importance of a low-iodine diet (LID) for thyroid cancer patients preparing for radioactive iodine (RAI) therapy, few studies have evaluated dietary intake during LID. This study evaluated the amount of dietary iodine intake and its major food sources during a typical diet and during LID periods for thyroid cancer patients preparing for RAI therapy, and examined how the type of nutrition education of LID affects iodine intake. SUBJECTS/METHODS: A total of 92 differentiated thyroid cancer patients with total thyroidectomy were enrolled from Seoul National University Hospital. All subjects completed three days of dietary records during usual and low-iodine diets before |TEX|$^{131}I$|/TEX| administration. RESULTS: The median iodine intake was |TEX|$290{\mu}g/day$|/TEX| on the usual diet and |TEX|$63.2{\mu}g/day$|/TEX| on the LID. The major food groups during the usual diet were seaweed, salted vegetables, fish, milk, and dairy products and the consumption of these
June 2016). If you are thinking about having a baby you need to know about iodine. Iodine is an essential mineral that we get from the food we eat. While seafood is a good source of iodine, the amount of iodine in other food like milk and vegetables varies depending on where it is grown and how it is made.. The developing baby in the womb, babies and young children are at greatest risk from a diet low in iodine. Mild to moderate iodine deficiency can cause learning difficulties and affect physical development and hearing. In recent years there was a re-emergence of iodine deficiency in Australia and New Zealand, with nearly half the population thought to have inadequate iodine intakes.. Since 2009, the Australian and New Zealand governments have required the salt used to make bread, except organic bread, to be replaced with iodised salt. This provides enough iodine for most of the population. However, because pregnant and breastfeeding women have the greatest need for iodine, the National Health ...
Context:Few data are available on the effect of iodine fortification on thyroid function development in a population.Objective:Our objective was to evaluate changes in thyroid function after iodine fortification in a population and to identify predictors for changes in serum TSH.Design and Setting:A longitudinal population-based study of the DanThyr C1 cohort examined at baseline (1997-1998) and reexamined 11 yr later (2008-2010). The mandatory program for iodization of salt was initiated in 2000.Participants:A total of 2203 individuals, with no previous thyroid disease, living in two areas with different levels of iodine intake, with measurement of TSH and participation in follow-up examination were included in the analysis.Main Outcome Measure:Change in serum TSH was evaluated.Results:During the 11-yr follow-up, mean TSH increased significantly from 1.27 mU/liter [95% confidence interval (CI) = 1.23-1.30] to 1.38 mU/liter (CI = 1.34-1.43) (P ,0.001). The most pronounced increase was observed ...
The weanling Wistar rats of iodine deficiency were divided into three groups for supplementation of different levels of iodine (iodine-excessive [IE], iodine-adequate [IA], and iodine-deficient [ID]), with a control group (C). The iodine content in the thyroid was determined by epithermal neutron activation analysis. The activities of 5-deiodinase and 5-deiodinase in the brains were assayed by determining the conversion ratios of T4 to T3 and rT3, respectively. The thyroid hormones levels in serum were also tested. The results indicated that the ID group had a goiter containing a small amount of iodine, but the IE group had a slightly swollen thyroid with rich iodine; the concentration of iodine per unit mass of thyroid was lower in group IE than in groups IA and C. The highest 5-deiodinase and lowest 5-deiodinase activities in group ID and the lowest 5-deiodinase activity in group IE were found. The iodine deficiency or excess resulted in a compensated hypothyroid state. The results suggest ...
Iodine deficiency induces multiple intrathyroidal autoregulatory changes leading to an increased triiodothyronine (T(3)) production and secretion, at the expense of thyroxine (T(4)). It is characterized by low serum T(4), normal or slightly elevated T(3), and as a consequence of the latter, normal thyrotropin (TSH). Tissues are also hypothyroxinemic, but their T(3) concentrations are mostly normal and ensure clinical euthyroidism, except for those that depend to a high degree on local generation from T(4) by extrathyroidal mechanisms involving the iodothyronine deiodinases isoenzymes. Thus, unless iodine deficiency is so severe and chronic that intrathyroidal and extrathyroidal mechanisms are no longer sufficient to maintain a normal T(3) in most tissues, individuals are clinically and biochemically euthyroid, but some tissues may be selectively hypothyroid (i.e., the brain). In adults both the intrathyroidal and the extrathyroidal mechanisms reacting to the iodine deficiency are fully operative ...
Iodine was the first nutrient to be recognized as essential to the human body. With the addition of iodine to salt in America, it may seem unlikely that there are an estimated 112 million persons with iodine deficiencies in loped regions. Yet a 1983 study proved just that. In fact, environmental levels of iodine in mountainous regions are inadequate for humans and animals who must seek iodine sources elsewhere.Iodine is present in food and water predominantly as iodide and is organically bound to amino acids, the building blocks of proteins and intermediates in metabolism. It can be found concentrated in seafood, since the mineral iodine is prevalent in sea water. Iodine can also be found in kelp, dulse, sea plants and fish, and fish roe.Iodine is mainly used by the thyroid gland, located in the upper neck. Of all the problems that can affect mental and physical health, none is more common than thyroid gland imbalance, caused by insufficient or excess iodine. In the absence of iodine, the thyroid gland
The LID works by emptying the body of its natural iodine stores. When RAI is administered, it puts radioactive iodine into the body. Because thyroid cells require iodine to produce hormones, they pick up the radioactive iodine. This has two outcomes: the radioactive iodine makes any residual thyroid cells visible on the scan, and destroys any remaining thyroid tissue, benign or malignant. The RAI therapy or scan can be compromised if even a relatively minute amount of natural iodine is present in the body. Any natural iodine that may be present will compete with radioactive iodine for entry into the thyroid cells, and may block uptake and limit the effectiveness of the RAI. ...

One source of iodine in milk may be the udder wash, but the diet fed to milk producing cows also factors into the iodine content. A dab in coffee is probably not too bad since it is a low-not-no iodine diet. Just wouldnt advocate using much dairy while on the LID regardless of the feed and caring of the cows.. From thyca.org: Dairy products (milk, cheese, cream, yogurt, butter, ice cream, powdered dairy creamers, whey, casein, other dairy products). Note: Nondairy creamers often have iodine-containing ingredients, too. A study published in 2004 in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism reported on tests of 18 brands of milk in the Boston, Massachusetts area. It reported that 250 ml of milk (about 8 ounces, or 1 cup, or 16 Tablespoons) contained from 88 to 168 micrograms of iodine and averaged 115 mcg. It noted that sources of iodine in milk include iodine in cattle feed, the products containing iodine used to clean teats and udders, and a small amount from equipment cleaning ...
Iodine is an essential element for the human body. Malfunction of the thyroid gland works for the fate of the mineral component of our ideas needs to be transparent. Our human body called the thyroid gland regulates metabolism and growth. If there is a lack of iodine in your body, you could be the following symptoms of fatigue, lethargy come, high cholesterol, depression, swollen glands, including the thyroid, much more.. For pregnancy If this is the problem of iodine in pregnant women and children are likely to be complications at birth. 33% of people in our country still have problems caused by iodine deficiency. If youre taking the right doses of iodine know whether or not the amount of iodine in urine emitted with the test. We accept iodine through food with urine out of the body is 90%. Urinary iodine levels would know that you know, if were taking the proper amounts of iodine. The average urinary iodine levels, with an average consumption of iodine in the body of iodine nutritional ...
All participants were interviewed by a research nurse who asked about the duration, frequency, and brand of any multivitamin supplements taken to quantify daily iodine supplementation. Due to the limited funding, dietary intake of iodine-containing foods was only assessed in a conveniently sampled subgroup of the population by another research assistant using a food frequency questionnaire (FFQ; Appendix). Education level and occupation were recorded for this subgroup. The FFQ was based on the literature and previously validated FFQs that have been used in the local population.6 9 10 Eleven main food groups that contribute to iodine intake in the local population were incorporated into the FFQ (Table 1). Portions were reported based on standard reference sizes, eg cups, grams, centilitres. To facilitate understanding and recall, food photo albums and eating utensils of standard portions were presented when completing the FFQ. Use of iodised salt was also documented. Daily dietary intake of ...
The mineral, iodine is highly poisonous as basic element and it takes only three grains to kill you. When a plant absorbs iodine (or any minerals) from the soil or mineral it converts it to an non-toxic organic form (or better described as colloidal form). Organic (colloidal) Mineral research became popular in the 1930s and a leading researcher, Dr Watson demonstrated drinking a glass full of colloidal iodine to show its safety. As no land based food containing iodine can easily be identified (even organic foods), there is only seaweed and seafoods in high quantities containing organic iodine. The closest you can get (and what my family take) to Organic Iodine is the product Nascent Iodine Why boost my organic iodine levels to protect against radiation? If your body does not get enough of any mineral and in this case iodine then your body may take in the next (available) mineral on the periodic table. Radioactivity contains radioactive iodine and therefore anyone deficient in iodine is at risk ...
There is a dearth of data on the iodine balance studies of Chinese population. In the present study, we aimed to explore the appropriate recommended nutrient intake (RNI) of iodine based on healthy Chinese women. A 4-week study was conducted in twenty-five Chinese euthyroid women. Uniform diets with different iodine contents were provided in two different periods, in which non-iodised salt was given in the first 3 weeks, followed by 1 week of iodised salt administration. The total iodine intake from diet, water and air as well as the total iodine excretion through urine, faeces and respiration were monitored and determined. The sweat iodine loss was also considered. Moreover, the regression curve model was established between the 24 h iodine intake and 24 h iodine excretion. The 24 h iodine intake in the two periods was 194·8 (sd 62·9) and 487·1 (sd 177·3) μg/d, respectively. The 24 h iodine excretion was 130·9 (sd 39·5) and 265·4 (sd 71·8) μg/d, respectively. Both 24 h iodine intake ...
Iodine is an essential component from the thyroid human hormones which are necessary for brain advancement. developing fetus may have life-long consequences for the offspring. Severe iodine insufficiency during pregnancy can be well-known to trigger cretinism and serious mental retardation(10). We lately discovered mild-to-moderate iodine insufficiency in a big UK cohort of women that are pregnant and the kids of these that got low iodine position in early being pregnant had been much more likely to possess considerably lower IQ and reading ratings(11). Though it is essential that women that are pregnant meet up with their iodine requirements, this isnt achieved even in developed countries like the USA always.(12,13) Strategies such as for example salt iodization programmes which exist in lots of countries might provide enough iodine for adults however, not necessarily for women that are pregnant(14). Hence, it is vital that you monitor the iodine position of women that are pregnant within a ...
Iodine is an essential element in the human diet and a deficiency can lead to a number of health outcomes collectively termed iodine deficiency disorders (IDD). The geochemistry of iodine is dominated by its volatility with volatilisation of organo-iodine compounds and elemental iodine from biological and non-biological sources in the oceans being a major component of its global cycle. As a result of the dominant oceanic source, iodine is strongly enriched in near-coastal soils, however, the major zone of marine influence generally stretches to only 50-80 km inland and terrestrial sources of volatilised iodine, from wetlands, soils and plants are also an important aspect of its global geochemical cycle. Iodine in soils is strongly bound with transfer factors from soil to plants being generally small and as a consequence there is only limited uptake of iodine through the plant root system. It is likely that uptake of atmospheric iodine by the aerial parts of plants is an essential process and, ...
Pregnant/lactating women: between 175-200 micrograms/day. What are some good sources of iodine?. Iodized salt is the primary food source of iodine. Iodine can also be found in seafood; kelp, cod, sea bass, haddock and perch are particularly good sources. Dairy products and vegetables grown in iodine-rich soil also contain large amounts of the mineral.. What can happen if you do not get enough iodine?. Iodine deficiency is uncommon in Western society; in fact, the typical Western diet contains about four times the recommended daily allowance of iodine. However, people who avoid dairy products, seafood, processed foods and iodized salt can become deficient.. Iodine deficiency can lead to decreased thyroid function, goiter, and cretinism, a condition marked by dry skin, swelling around the lips and nose, and impaired mental function.. What can happen if I take too much?. In addition to being linked to iodine deficiency, some studies suggest that goiter may also be caused by excessive iodine intake. ...

It is supplied to us by the foods we eat on a daily basis. It can be found in certain vegetables, yogurt, cranberries, salt, and cheese. The organ that uses Iodine the most is the thyroid gland.. Iodine is atomic number 53 on the periodic table of elements and has a molecular makeup.. Iodine can come in different forms like tablets, pills, ointments, ...
Iodine Global Network is a non-profit, non-government organization for the sustainable elimination of iodine deficiency worldwide.
Why is high Potency Iodine Supplement and Supplying Elemental Iodine and Iodide (Lugols-Solution) so important for our Patients?. Iodine is an essential trace mineral and necessary for the production of thyroxine (T4). Although 80% of the dietary intake of iodine is sequestered by the thyroid gland, other tissues concentrate iodine as well. They include salivary glands, gastric mucosa, mammary glands, ovaries and the choroid plexus. If iodine is missing because of low intake we will have a serious problem not only in the function of the thyroid, but in other organs, especially in the immune- & hormone-system. Iodine is often found lacking in the typical Western diet. Consequently, as a result of decreased iodine status, sufficient thyroxine cannot be produced, negatively impacting thyroid function immune- and hormone-system and the general repair ability. The use of oral iodine/iodide for instance 2 drops Lugols-Solution in a cup of tea, can aid in circumnavigating this issue. Interestingly, ...

The NHANES 2003-2006 has assessed iron and iodine status, 2 trace element nutrients of continued public health interest, in the U.S. population. We investigated associations of sociodemographic (age, sex, race-ethnicity, education, income) and lifestyle (smoking, alcohol consumption, BMI, physical activity, dietary supplement use) variables with the iron status indicators serum ferritin, soluble transferrin receptor (sTfR), and body iron in women aged 20-49 y (n = 2539, 2513, and 2509, respectively) and with urine iodine, a biomarker of iodine intake, in adults aged ≥ 20 y (n = 3066). Significant correlations between the study variables and biomarkers were weak (,r, ≤ 0.24). Urine creatinine (uCr) was moderately significantly correlated with urine iodine (r = 0.52). The individual variables explained ≤ 5% of the variability in biomarker concentrations in bivariate analysis. In multiple regression models, sociodemographic and lifestyle variables together explained 4-13% of the variability ...

While a deficiency of iodine can cause problems in adults including development of a goiter and in more pronounced cases, hypothyroidism, it causes even more devastating effects on the developing fetus including growth abnormalities, decreased intelligence levels, movement abnormalities, and neurological deficits. In fact, iodine deficiency is the leading cause of preventable mental retardation in this country and around the world. Even more disturbing is the fact that the neurological defects seen in a fetus stemming from a deficiency of iodine are not reversible with supplementation once theyve occurred. For this reason, its critical that pregnant women get adequate iodine supplementation for the sake of the developing fetus. The number of pregnant women who have a deficiency of iodine actually increased significantly between 1971 and 2002 but has since leveled off according to surveys.. In adults, a deficiency of iodine can present with development of a neck mass known as a goiter which may ...
Published on March 13, 2017, Last modified on April 10, 2017. We knew a hundred years ago that we needed more iodine and governments started putting a tiny bit in table salt. It was not enough and after the nuclear accident at Fukushima, we need more because of the radioactive iodine released into the environment.. Humans in the 21st Century have an absolute need for iodine supplementation. Iodine is the only medicinal that stands between antibiotic resistant hell and us.. There are many reasons we need iodine in abundance. There are three principle reasons, however, that stand out thrusting iodine into its place as a medicine of supreme importance:. The first is its antibiotic, anti-fungal and anti-viral effects that go beyond antibiotics because it kills viruses, which antibiotic do not. Iodine kills fungus and yeast like candida, which antibiotics do not. In addition, it does it without creating antibiotic resistant strains of bacteria. Scientists are also finding that antibiotics are causing ...

Abstract. Iodine status measured as urinary iodine excretion in school children has improved in recent years in Indonesia, including Central Java province. However, the Total Goiter Rate (TGR) in the Ngargoyoso sub-district was 51.0% in 2010.The objective of this study was to identify environmental factors that may affect iodine deficiency in this sub-district. An ecological perspective was used as a conceptual framework to conduct cross sectional studies between 2010 and 2015. Data on Total goiter rate was collected from 800 schoolchildren aged 8-10 years using palpation of the thyroid gland. The urinary iodine excretion was carried out by using acid digestion Sandell- Kolthoff reaction on 371 preschool children and 153 pregnant ...
Taking supplements from complete, natural nourishments is typically remarkably prompted. Then again, a substantial number of sustenance items dont really have sufficient iodine amounts to considerably expand tissue measures of iodine inside the physique, or maybe the iodine is not effectively taken in. Therefore its gainful to take iodine health supplements.. Detoxadine is a five star every day beginning nuclear iodine wholesome supplement fabricated from solid transformative iodine in a bio-basic nanocolloidal state.

Iodine is an absolute requirement for maternal, fetal, and postnatal thyroid hormone synthesis. Newborns affected with iodine deficiency have low T4 and high TSH concentrations. With radioisotope imaging, there is avid uptake of 123I by a normally located gland. Treatment involves iodine replacement until normal iodine balance is achieved.. On a global basis, iodine deficiency is the most common cause of transient hypothyroidism, particularly in preterm newborns.15,-,17 Preterm newborns are at higher risk because they have been prematurely deprived of the maternal supply of thyroid hormone, as well as iodine, which leads to inadequate accumulation of iodine in the thyroid gland compared with that of term newborns. Hypothyroidism represents a form of the broader category of iodine-deficiency disorders, which include endemic goiter, hypothyroidism, cretinism, decreased fertility rate, increased infant mortality, and intellectual disability.18 There is extreme variation in iodine deficiency among ...
Abstract-Radioiodines, particularly 131I, may be released into the environment in breach-of-containment nuclear reactor accidents and localize in and irradiate the thyroid with an attendant risk of neoplastic growth and other adverse health effects. Pharmacologic thyroid blockade by oral potassium iodide (KI) (50-100 mg in adults) can substantially reduce thyroid uptake of and irradiation by internalized radioiodine. In the current analysis, computer modeling of iodine metabolism has been used to systematically elucidate the effects of two practically important but highly variable factors on the radioprotective effect of KI: the time of administration relative to exposure to radioiodine and the dietary level of iodine. In euthyroid adults receiving iodine-sufficient diets (250 &mgr;g d−1 in the current analysis), KI administered up to 48 h before 131I exposure can almost completely block thyroid uptake and therefore greatly reduce the thyroid absorbed dose. However, KI administration 96 h or more
Following an application from Specialised Nutrition Europe (formerly IDACE), submitted pursuant to Article 14 of Regulation (EC) No 1924/2006 via the Competent Authority of France, the EFSA Panel on Dietetic Products, Nutrition and Allergies (NDA) was asked to deliver an opinion on the scientific substantiation of a health claim related to iodine and contribution to normal cognitive development. The food constituent, iodine, which is the subject of the health claim, is sufficiently characterised. Contribution to normal cognitive development is a beneficial physiological effect for infants and young children. A claim on iodine and contribution to normal cognitive and neurological function in the general population has already been assessed with a favourable outcome. In addition, there is a large body of evidence indicating a crucial role for iodine in growth and development. The Panel notes the well established role of iodine in preventing iodine deficiency disorders such as retarded mental and ...
Cases of thyroid dysfunction associated with ingestion of soy milk. In November 2008, a 36-year-old woman (Patient 1, Box 1) presented with a mildly elevated serum thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) level detected during screening for in vitro fertilisation. As she tested negative for thyroid antibodies, her urinary iodine level was measured to exclude iodine deficiency; this level was markedly elevated at 4445 μg/L (reference range [RR], , 200 μg/L). The source of the excess iodine was unclear until the patient did an internet search and identified that the soy milk she had been drinking (Bonsoy) contained kombu1,2 - a type of seaweed. The patient ceased drinking the soy milk, which resulted in rapid normalisation of her TSH level. Three months later, a 38-year-old man (Patient 2, Box 1) presented with florid thyrotoxicosis. Minimal uptake of technetium on a thyroid scan and absence of TSH receptor antibodies essentially excluded Graves disease. The scan result, in combination with his ...
INTRODUCTION. The antibacterial properties of iodine have been known for more than 150 years, and, at the present, it is widely used as antiseptic for treating and preventing wound infections in daily practice and in preoperative skin preparations.1 In some neonatal departments iodine is applied in umbilical cord care; however, some adverse effects due to excess iodine absorption have been reported in preterm and low-birth-weight infants as thyroid dysfunction. Additionally, abnormalities of cardiac conduction, lactic acidosis, acute renal failure, and hypocalcaemia have been also described depending on the severity of intoxication.2. Povidone-iodine (PI), a stable chemical complex of polyvinylpyrolidone and elemental iodine, has replaced the widespread use of other iodine solutions as iodine tincture in emergency kits. Nowadays, it is often used topically to disinfect wounds at homes. In spite of its common use, povidone iodine poisoning is unusual and previously reported effects are mainly ...

Fallout from a nuclear bomb explosion or a nuclear power plant meltdown is full of radioactive iodine-131 (I-131). Nuclear fission splits the nuclei of uranium-235 and plutonium-239, producing I-131. The stable, natural isotope of iodine is iodine-127. Iodine is the largest and heaviest element of the 25 elements that make up the human body. Iodine plays a number of important roles in the body. The thyroid gland uses it to make thyroxine, with 4 iodine atoms, and triiodothyronine (T3), with three. The active form, T3, regulates metabolism, thermogenesis, and protein synthesis. Other tissues and glands require iodine to function normally, including stomach mucosa, mammary glands, ovaries, salivary glands, prostate, and the thymus gland. Iodine functions as an antioxidant, strengthens the immune system, and suppresses autoimmunity. And it triggers apoptosis, destroying cells that become cancerous and cells infected with viruses. Iodine also removes toxic chemicals from the body - fluoride, ...
Many people with Graves Disease have received the radioactive iodine uptake test. This test involves the person swallowing a small dosage of radioactive iodine. The thyroid gland in turn will absorb the radioactive iodine, and this is then evaluated after six hours, and then once again after 24 hours.. Many endocrinologists use the radioactive iodine uptake test to come up with their diagnosis of Graves Disease. However, its important to understand that this test does not conclude that someone has this autoimmune hyperthyroid condition. If the results of the uptake test are high then this shows that the thyroid gland is secreting an excessive amount of thyroid hormone, and in many instances the person with a high uptake test will have Graves Disease. This test can also determine the presence of hot and cold nodules, which can give the doctor an idea as to whether they are benign or malignant..

1981: Lamberg et al. Further decrease in thyroidal uptake and disappearance of endemic goitre in children after 30 years of iodine prophylaxis in the east of Finland. Endemic goitre of moderate severity was mainly found in the east of Finland in the 1930′s. Studies in the 1950′s showed an average daily iodine intake of 65-70 micrograms in the west and 50-65 micrograms in the east of the country. The use of iodized salt was introduced in the late 1940′s but added only 15 micrograms of iodine to the daily intake. In the late 1950′s iodine prophylaxis was intensified and the use of salt containing 25 mg KI/kg was recommended. In 1978 about 95% of all household salt used in the Savonlinna area was iodized. This region in the east of Finland has been used as an area of surveillance and studies have been carried out there in 1959, 1969 and 1979. During this period the thyroidal uptake decreased from 67 to 23% in non-goitrous subjects and from 62 to 28% in goitre patients the difference ...
A 2 by 4 factorial experiment replicated 3 times, arranged in a randomized complete block design was conducted to determine the effectiveness of agronomic iodine biofortification of two varieties of cassava (TME 419 and TMS 30555) using different rates of potassium iodate (0, 2.5, 5.0 and 10kg/ha) in Calabar, southeastern Nigeria. Parameters measured were growth rate (plant height), tuber number, tuber weight and tuber weight per plot. Iodine content in harvested tuberswere also determined. Results indicated that plant height, number of stem, number of leaves, LA and LA1 were not markedly affected by applied iodine (P> 0.05); tuber number, weight and plot yields did not vary significantly with iodine rates. Iodine absorption and retention in tuber flesh and processed product were significant positively correlated with iodine doses ( ...

In our age of increasing radioactivity and toxic poisoning specifically with fluoride,[1] chlorine, bromide, and even mercury, iodine is a necessary mineral.. Iodine is extremely important since the cells need it to regulate their metabolism. Without it, people are known to suffer from swollen glands in the throat, thyroid diseases, increased fluoride toxicity, decreased fertility rates, increased infant mortality rates, and (with severe deficiency) mental retardation. It has been theorized that iodine deficiency is a causal factor of ADHD in babies of iodine-deficient mothers.. Iodine intake immediately increases the excretion of bromide, fluoride, and some heavy metals including mercury and lead. Bromide and fluoride are not removed by any other chelator or detoxifying technique.. Dr. Kenezy Gyula Korhaz states that iodine chelates heavy metals such as mercury, lead, cadmium, aluminum, and halogens such as fluoride and bromide, thus decreasing their iodine-inhibiting effects,[2] especially of ...

New research confirms that those with shellfish allergy are not more likely to react to radiocontrast material used to improve clarity on x-ray scans.. In the past, it had been suggested that, because of their high iodine content, the imaging agents were leading to cross-reactions in shellfish-allergic patients. Shellfish also tends to be high in iodine.. You cant be allergic to iodine; its already in your body - its found in thyroid hormones and amino acids, says Dr. Joelle Borhart of Georgetown University Hospital in Washington, D.C. Iodine is essential for our survival.. After analyzing several studies, Borhart found there was no reason to single out those with shellfish allergy as being especially susceptible to reactions to imaging agents.. It is unclear how this medical myth started, but it has become pervasive. One study found that 92 percent of shellfish-allergic patients believed they would react to iodine. Another found that a majority of radiologists still ask patients whether ...
An iodine intake of 100 to 150 ~tg/day is considered nutritionally adequate.Urinary iodine levels are similar to intake levels and can be used to estimate iodine consumption. Iodine deficiency occurs with an intake below 50 ~tg/day. Persons consuming this level are at risk for developing goiter. Goiter is almost alwaysinduced by intakes under 10 ~tg/day. Goiter is enlargement or hypertrophy of the thyroid gland. The thyroid in the iodine-sufficient subject is barely visible in theneck. Goiter, of increasing severity, is categorized in three grades: (1) a small enlargement detectable by palpitation, (2) a thick neck, and (3) a large swelling that may be asymmetrical and is visible from a distance. A grade 3 goiter compressesthe trachea and can result in shortness of breath during heavy work. The highest incidences of goiter are found in less developed areas of the world such as the Czech Republic, the former Yugoslavia, parts of India, Paragua~ Peru, Argentina, Pakistan, most of Africa, Southeast ...

Light micrograph of hyperplastic goiter. Causes of goiter include Gravess disease, lack of dietary iodine, simple overgrowth or the presence of a tumour. A lack of dietary iodine, which is necessary for the production of thyroid hormones, causes the gland to enlarge in an attempt to increase hormone production. Iodine deficiency was the cause of endemic goiter, formerly common in regions where the diet lacked iodine. - Stock Image C025/2890
I ve been on iodine since October 2016, so about 7 months now, and since last Dr. visit, both ovarian cysts are now shrinking! Super happy :) A little about my iodine intake... I take 150mg Lugol s every day, split into two doses spread out, and I also paint my abdomen a couple times a week. I want to add, I have also been doing castor oil packets here and there, I m sure this has helped too. I ve said this in a different post, but iodine also helped completely dissolve my uterine fibroid
The specification of biodiesel is related to factors associated with its quality as a fuel. The iodine value as one of those quality parameters measures the degree of unsaturation present in a biodiesel composition. The unsaturated fatty acids (existence of double bonds) are susceptible to the oxidation reactions that can lead to the formation of polymeric compounds by heating. Moreover, these polymeric compounds can produce gum formation, which is detrimental to the vehicle engine due to its corrosive actions. For determining the iodine value in biodiesel, the standardized procedures use volumetric titration-with starch as an indicator-as the main technique for iodine value measurement. Some of these procedures also mention potentiometric titration as an alternative technique. This work aims to show the results of the iodine value obtained from an experimental design based on 23 factorial designs at two levels. It was performed on a biodiesel matrix from palm oil in order to indicate major ...
This brings up another point. With all the fluorine and chlorine we are exposed to from bathing, brushing our teeth, cooking with tap water, drinking tea, consuming chlorides such as sodium chloride (table salt), etc. why isnt every one breaking out in acne? After all fluorine and chlorine will both push bromine out of the system. On the other hand iodine is less reactive than bromine so the bromine if present will push the iodine out of the system. Yet they are claiming that the acne only occurs when they take the less reactive iodine that does not push bromine out of the body like fluorine and chlorine will ...
Iodine was discovered in the residue of burnt seaweed in 1812. ( Courtois). 1820 Coindet gave iodine (KI) as the active ingredient in seaweed to goiter patients. The goiters shrank. However, toxic effects occurred from excess iodine in some patients. It was shelved for goiters after that.The major complication was toxic iodine induced thyrotoxicosis. This is the first description of any form of thyrotoxicosis by Coindet. They knew it worked but did not know it was replacing a deficiency of iodine. Most of the 19 th century few accepted that a disease could be caused by a lack of something. Even though iodine was not accepted as the cause in 1830 it was used to treat goiter in Columbia South America, and in 1850 by Chatin in France. It was thought goiter was caused by something in the water-toxin,bacteria, or a parasite. The cause was not determined until early 20th century when small amounts of iodine given to school girls in Akron Ohio prevented goiters.. to be continued. ...
Also avoid sodium lauryl sulfite (SLS), these products are often labeled SLS free.. Iodine - Missing Protection from our Food Supply.. Thirty years ago iodine (Read more about iodine is needed) was removed from our bread and replaced with bromide (Bromide affects your thyroid!). Since that time breast cancer rates and thyroid dysfunction have sky rocketed to epidemic levels and continue to climb ever higher, as your food gets worse and our total body burden of chemicals and heavy metals climbs higher. Hypothroidism is very common today and our average body temperature is no longer 98.6. Having a temperature of 98.6 is imperative because the liver performs many functions and depends on the correct body temperature for those enzymatic processes to occur.. Iodine, chlorine, bromine and fluoride are all halides, except only iodine is a healthy halide, the others belong in a class referred to as toxic halides. Eating bread, taking a shower, and brushing your teeth can all be dangerous to your ...
Latest improvements in physiology and molecular discipline own revolutionized our understanding of iodine energy at the cellular and sub-cellular levels. This in move offers improved our knowledge of Iodine Insufficiency Problems (IDD), their reduction, control and management.. The thyroid happy makes use of a great deal extra, but a good part of the organs engaged in digestion of food (digestive tract mucosa, producing abdominal acid solution, making intestinal nutrients in pancreas, lean meats, gall bladder, kidney, salivary glands), and nose area, sinues and mouth, ovaries, testes, etc. However, just like sulfur, our modern day farming methods indicates our garden soil are inferior in iodine. Iodine can be consumed by mouth area to prevent and take care of iodine deficit and its effects, incorporating goiter and some thyroid problems. It is certainly furthermore employed for treating lumpy chests (fibrocystic breasts ailment) and chest soreness (mastalgia).. Despair, exhausted, signs and ...
In the present work, a simple and rapid method for determination of iodate is described. Iodometric reaction between iodate, excess iodide, and acid has been used, and the iodine liberated is allowed to react with variamine blue (VB) dye in the presence of sodium acetate to yield a violet-colored species. A calibration curve was obtained in the concentration range of 2 to 30 μg of iodate in a final equilibration volume of 10 mL. The effect of different interfering anions on determination of iodate was also studied. The developed method was applied to iodate determination in various iodized salt samples obtained from local markets in and around Pune city, India. The amount of iodate in various table salt samples was in the range of 10 to 25 ppm.

Today,Dr.Tashiro from Hiroshima university published the data to show about half of the children in Fukushima have their thyroid exposed to radioactive Iodine.. They tested 1149 children in Fukushima ,and they detected radioactive Iodine from about half of the sample.. Dr.Tashio said,they may have thyroid cancer if they are internally exposed to more than 100mSv.. but in the data,even the highest level is only 35mSv,so it is hard to assume they will have a thyroid cancer.. However,they will continue monitoring the children.. However again,I personally have a couple of the questions.. 1) What is the basis of 100mSv. 2) From their historical deception,it is highly likely that actual data is even worse than that.. 3) Why dont they let the children evacuate right now.. 4) Half life time of Iodine is about 8 days. I wonder why they still detect Iodine.(sorry,Im amateur.). 5) Why did they delete all the thyroid test data from the website of Nuclear Safety Commission.. Maybe I dont need to watch ...

Commonly encountered environmental chemicals might augment the effects of iodine deficiency by competing for transport by the sodium-iodide symporter (NIS). The NIS is an integral plasma membrane glycoprotein found in the thyroid gland and the lactating mammary gland, among other tissues. 12 The NIS mediates the active transport of iodide into the thyroid follicular cells, making it available to iodinate dehydroxylated tyrosine for the first step in thyroid hormone synthesis. In the mammary gland, the NIS mediates transport of iodide into milk, making it available to the infant. Although the NIS has a high affinity for iodide, other anions, such as thiocyanate, nitrate, and perchlorate, can compete with (and be transported as) iodide and thus decrease iodide concentration within the thyroid gland or milk. Although such transport might be expected to lead to increased concentrations of nitrate, thiocyanate, and perchlorate in human milk, only perchlorate exposure and excretion have been found to ...

Despite that adverse taste, almost all the research on iodine supplementation has been done using Lugols Solution (17). The original solution is called 5% Lugols Iodine, but in reality it consists of 12.5% iodide/iodine or (I-/[I3]-) ions. Two drops of Lugols Solution (0.1 ml) contain 12.5 mg iodine/iodide mix. Iodine tablets that are a solid form of Lugols solution, were created to mask the taste and make the doses more precise for dietary supplementation.. I should mention a few points about Edgar Cayces atomidine. This famous visionary wrote several articles about the best form of iodine supplement (18). Some claim that this was iodine trichloride, but that cannot be true as this compound is toxic by ingestion and damaging to mucous membranes. It decomposes to ICl and poisonous gas Cl2 at 77 degrees C and also in water at room temperature (19). Most likely Cayces atomidine was simply a 1% iodine solution (I2) in 95% ethanol. I am surprised that there are educated people, even medical ...

Several minerals and trace elements are essential for normal thyroid hormone metabolism, e.g., iodine, iron, selenium, and zinc. Coexisting deficiencies of these elements can impair thyroid function. Iron deficiency impairs thyroid hormone synthesis by reducing activity of heme-dependent thyroid peroxidase. Iron-deficiency anemia blunts and iron supplementation improves the efficacy of iodine supplementation. Combined selenium and iodine deficiency leads to myxedematous cretinism. The normal thyroid gland retains high selenium concentrations even under conditions of inadequate selenium supply and expresses many of the known selenocysteine-containing proteins. Among these selenoproteins are the glutathione peroxidase, deiodinase, and thioredoxine reductase families of enzymes. Adequate selenium nutrition supports efficient thyroid hormone synthesis and metabolism and protects the thyroid gland from damage by excessive iodide exposure. In regions of combined severe iodine and selenium deficiency, ...

Thyroid disorders are very common and tend to occur in persons of all age groups. The global incidence of thyroid disorders are increasing as the thyroid gland easily responds to the factors such as- stress and anxiety.. According to World Health Organization, about 2 billion people are iodine deficient worldwide. The iodine deficiency causes goiter and severe iodine deficiency causes Hypothyroidism.. The thyroid gland is a small and butterfly shaped gland that is situated in front of the neck. The function of thyroid gland is to produce two hormones: T3 (triiodothyronine) and T4 (thyroxin) and calcitonin. But, strictly speaking, T3 and T4 are proper thyroid hormones.. ...

The small, butterfly-shaped thyroid sits just below the voice box. From this perch, it controls how fast every cell in the body changes food into energy. The glands main product, thyroid hormone, governs the function of the digestive tract, brain, heart, nerves, muscles, bones, skin, and more.. Iodine is a key ingredient that goes into making thyroid hormone. We get this element from ocean-caught or ocean-farmed fish and shellfish, milk, cheese, yogurt, eggs, and fruits and vegetables grown in iodine-rich soil.. The human body is surprisingly good at absorbing iodine and storing it in the thyroid gland. Thats a problem when iodine-131 is released into the atmosphere. The thyroid stores it as readily as natural, non-radioactive iodine. As iodine-131 builds up in the thyroid gland, it emits bursts of radiation that can damage DNA and other genetic material. Such damage can remove the normal limits to cell growth and division. Unchecked growth of thyroid tissue is thyroid cancer.. Iodine-131 gets ...
