What is this test?

Iodine is an essential element that is required for thyroid hormone production. The measurement of urinary iodine serves as an index of adequate dietary intake. Iodine is an essential micronutrient and an integral component of thyroid hormones. Iodine is obtained only through the diet and is mainly absorbed by the gastrointestinal tract as the inorganic anion, iodide. The status of iodine nutrition of a population is determined by measurements of iodine as urinary iodide (UI) concentration since it is considered an indicator of the adequacy of the iodine intake of that population. In general, it is assumed that most ingested iodine, such as sodium or potassium iodide, is excreted in the urine, and that equilibrium is established between dietary iodine intake and UI excretion. The assessment is of urinary iodide anion concentration; nevertheless, it is common to refer to the laboratory tests as urinary iodine tests.
