This test measures Iodine levels in a person's urine. Iodine is an element which is essential for healthy functioning in many organs and systems such as the thyroid, heart, liver, lungs, and immune system. Proper iodine levels aid in the production of thyroid hormones. A urine test measures the amount of iodine being excreted in a person's urine. Evaluating urinary iodine levels can help determine if a person is getting healthy amounts of iodine from the food they eat. Abnormal levels of iodine, both high and low, can result in health problems including disorders such as hyperthyroidism and hypothyroidism.
An Iodine Urine test is often ordered when someone is showing irregular results from thyroid tests such as TSH, T3 and T4. Pregnant and nursing women are often tested for Iodine because deficiency can have adverse effects on pregnancy and cause developmental difficulties in infants.
This measures iodine levels in a single urine collection. In some cases a 24 Hour Urine Iodine test can provide a more accurate assessment of iodine levels. Customers looking for additional thyroid testing may wish to order our Thyroid Basic Panel with TSH.
Turnaround time for a Urine Iodine test is typically 1-3 business days.
Note: Result turn around times are an estimate and are not guaranteed. Our reference lab may need additional time due to weather, holidays, confirmation/repeat testing, or equipment maintenance.
This iodine test has no requirements.
