Iodine deficiency, excessive iodine intake prevalent in children in Brazil

May 23, 2016

The presence of iodine deficiency in school-aged children may be, in part, due to socioeconomic factors and lack of education about the nutritional importance of iodine, according to study findings.

In the cross-sectional study, Helton E. Ramos, MD, PhD, of the department of bioregulation at the Federal University of Bahia in Brazil, and colleagues evaluated data from 1,419 children (mean age, 11 years) from 17 schools (70.6% urban; 29.4% rural) in Bahia to assess iodine nutritional status, household food security, socioeconomic and demographic characteristics.
