- Comprehensive assessment of iodine sufficiency as well as the antagonistic halides in a single test
- Requires a non-invasive first morning void and a 24-hour urine collection
- State-of-the art urine elemental analysis
Iodine is an essential element required for normal function of the thyroid gland, immune system, and the integrity of thyroid and breast tissue. Sub-optimal total body iodine status is associated with insufficient intake of the essential element and excessive intake of the highly antagonistic halides; bromide and fluoride. Iodine sufficiency and the retention of antagonistic bromide and fluoride can be estimated by analysis of iodine, bromine and fluoride in urine.
