An essential element for health, Iodine's primary function is in the production of thyroid hormones. A widely misunderstood element, Iodine is needed throughout the entire body to maintain proper and normal daily functions.
Hakala Research Supplies easy and efficient ways to test your Iodine levels. We offer two methods: the 24 Hour Urine Iodine Loading Test and the Urine Iodine Spot Test.
An in depth test to evaluate whole body sufficiency for Iodine. After ingesting a 50mg LugoTab tablet, urine is collected for 24 hours. With this test, Iodine sufficiency is determined by comparing the amount of Iodine taken to the amount excreted in the urine. Whole body Iodine sufficiency is reached when 90% or more of the ingested amount is excreted in the urine. **Before participating in this evaluation, discuss any history of thyroid surgery and/or radiation, Hashimoto disease, and any previous problems with your thyroid with you health care provider**
A quick snapshot of current levels of Iodine in the body, evaluating pre-supplementation status. A level below 0.15 mg/L is defined as an Iodine deficient state according to the World Health Organization.
We offer a combination kit containing both tests (Urine Iodine Spot Test Kit and the 24 Hour Urine Iodine Loading Test Kit) for the complete evaluation of a single patient.
