How the iodine test works:
Detection of the iodine concentration in a urine sample. The sample is used to determine the amount of iodine excreted by the body, by measuring the iodine concentration in a urine sample. The lower the concentration, the greater the deficiency. This test is particularly important for pregnant and breastfeeding women, who should have an adequate supply at all times.
Note: Please note that the costs for this test are not always covered by private health insurance. Please check with your insurer beforehand.
