InHealth Compounding Pharmacy of Fargo knows that the identification and treatment of an iodine deficiency has obvious benefits. In order to determine the daily amount of essential iodine required for whole body sufficiency, an Iodine Loading Test must be performed. This test is based on the premise that the more iodine-deficient the body is, the more ingested iodine is retained, and the less is excreted in the urine.
Good Health Requires Adequate Iodine Levels
Every cell in the body contains and utilizes iodine. Essential for life, iodine has many effects on the body:
Nerve & muscle function
Tissue growth & repair
It has been estimated that approximately one third of the world's population is iodine deficient, and studies in the United States have suggested that the number may be even higher, with some estimates as high as 95%. Iodine deficiencies can occur not only because of inadequate intake, but also due to the damaging toxins we are exposed to every day. Given the various functions of iodine in the body, it is easy to see how even a slight deficiency can cause widespread problems. An especially interesting area of study in iodine deficiency is the field of hormone balancing.
