iodine deficiency

Warning signs of iodine deficiency


Iodine is a trace element that the body needs for the production of thyroid hormones. The thyroid gland combines iodine with tyrosine, an amino acid, to manufacture the thyroid hormones. These hormones are needed for maintaining normal and healthy metabolism in all cells in the body. Consequently, a lack of iodine in one's dietary intake could result in numerous thyroid-related health conditions and symptoms.
