Fluoride causes increased urinary iodine levels

Post by admin »

Fluoride leads to the lowering of serum iodine levels, and higher iodine excretion rates. (The basis for the fluoride treatment in cases of iodine-induced hyperthyroidism). This can be seen in urinary iodine (UIC) levels. Serum fluoride levels correlate with UIC levels.

Here is another graph by Shashi and Singla (2013).
