I did the 24 hour iodine urine excretion test, and my excretion was 54%, and ive read that if you have sufficient levels of iodine your body will excrete 90% of it, and if you excrete any less than you have low iodine levels. Is this test even accurate? What happens if your body systems arent working properly and your body isnt excreting all the iodine that it should and the iodine in your system is doing more damage than good?
But if this test is accurate, then would somebody who is iodine deficient be gauranteed to have or develop thyroid problems? I mean it seems like 90% of the population would be iodine deficient if they did this test, yet most people dont even have a clue about this stuff and are just fine and healthy with no problems.
Why would i be any different then these people and for some reason be deficient in iodine? I ate the normal diet everybody else does.
Would really like some insight on this. Thanks!
