Iodine is an essential element for the normal functioning of the thyroid gland. Any deficiency in iodine leads to hypothyroidism, goiter, and their associated symptoms.
Without iodine, the thyroid is unable to produce T3 and T4, which are crucial for all cellular processes.
If you’re having symptoms of slow cognition, physical fatigue, and hair loss, you might want to consider getting iodine levels tested.
Thyroid hormones affect every single cell in our bodies. Unfortunately, without iodine, the thyroid gland is unable to synthesize these hormones, which leads to signs and symptoms of hypothyroidism.
Because the hormones influence all organ systems, you should expect to see systemic manifestations of hypothyroidism, including weight gain, hair loss, hyperglycemia, and high blood pressure.
Testing iodine levels in the blood is the first step to diagnose iodine-deficiency hypothyroidism, and thanks to our readily available kits, you can do this from the comfort of your home.
