Iodine-induced Hypothyroidism

Goiter Iodide


  • Lymphocytic infiltration was present in about half of the specimens. No specimens showed either stromal fibrosis or parenchymal atrophy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Hypervascularisation is not present.[intechopen.com]
  • Recognition of the association between iodine excess and iodine -induced hypothyroidism or hyperthyroidism is important in the differential diagnosis of patients who present without a known cause of thyroid dysfunction.[journals.lww.com]
  • Likewise, hair loss, dry skin, fatigue, and weight gain are hypothyroid symptoms. Iodine in high doses will induce the Wolff-Chaikoff effect, where thyroid hormone synthesis and release stops.[tiredthyroid.com]
  • The following are symptoms for hypothyroidism: Fatigue Frequent, heavy menstrual periods Forgetfulness Weight gain Dry, coarse skin and hair Hoarse voice Intolerance to cold The following are symptoms for hyperthyroidism: Irritability/nervousness Muscle[my.clevelandclinic.org]
  • This can ultimately lead to symptoms such as weight loss, anxiety, fatigue, hyperactivity, and a general intolerance to heat.[globalhealingcenter.com]
  • The anxiety and irritability improved, and her fatigue began to lift. Once we received her test results back, we found that Jenny had stage 3 adrenal fatigue, and two gut infections; H. pylori and Blastocystis hominis.[thyroidpharmacist.com]

  • On occasions, the “escape” or “adaptation” phenomenon does not occur, giving rise to the persistent inhibition of thyroid hormone formation, leading to hypothyroidism and goiter (myxedema).[omicsonline.org]
  • Not only clinicians, but also pathologists, must pay attention to this type of hypothyroidism, because thyroid function may revert to normal by iodine restriction alone.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • He was elected a Fellow of the Royal College of Pathologists in 2000. In 1993, he gained a D.Sc. degree for his outstanding contribution to protein metabolism.[books.google.com]
Cold Intolerance

  • Diagnosis of the disease is often delayed until the patients manifest multiple clinical symptoms of severe hypothyroidism such as fatigue, lethargy, bradycardia, constipation and hoarseness due to the absence of goitor.[japanthyroid.jp]
Asthmatic Bronchitis
  • Abstract Among 1107 patients with asthma or chronic asthmatic bronchitis and 96 with hypothyroidism we found 12 patients with both diseases. Seven of these patients had hypothyroidism induced by iodine-containing expectorants.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]


  • The diagnostic workup begins with a thyroid-stimulating hormone level test. When test results are uncertain, measuring radionuclide uptake helps distinguish among possible causes.[aafp.org]
  • It is widely used not only in the management of thyroid nodules, but also in the diagnostic workup of thyroid dysfunction.[intechopen.com]
Lymphocytic Infiltrate


  • Three patients had an exacerbation of their asthma, while another three had no change in their asthma when the iodine treatment was discontinued and the euthyroid state subsequently restored.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Antithyroid drug treatment duration ( P .001) as well as perchlorate treatment ( P .002) decreased after the mandatory increase.[healio.com]
  • After oral L-thyroxine treatment the goiter disappeared. Thyroid function remained normal when treatment was discontinued after five months although iodine excretion was still 50 times higher (2.5 mg/day) than in normal age matched children.[link.springer.com]


  • Prognosis and Follow-up The prognosis for a patient with hyperthyroidism is good with appropriate treatment.[aafp.org]


  • Use Additional Use Additional Help Certain conditions have both an underlying etiology and multiple body system manifestations due to the underlying etiology.[icd10data.com]
  • Etiologic diagnosis influences prognosis and therapy.[aafp.org]


  • In 1999, the mandatory iodization of kitchen salt increased from 10 mg potassium iodide to 25 mg/kg salt after an epidemiologic study in the early 1990s indicating that Slovenia was an area with mild iodine deficiency , according to the researchers.[healio.com]
