Mild Iodine Deficiency Linked to Significant Infertility

Mild Iodine Deficiency Linked to Significant Infertility

Iodine deficient and iodine insufficient women have a tougher time conceiving, according to a study funded by the National Institutes of Health and the Eunice Shriver Human Development Institute.

The study found that iodine deficiency is very common in women of childbearing age.  44% of women with an iodine deficiency had nearly a 50% reduction in their ability to conceive.  In short, sub-clinical, and unrecognized iodine deficiency is linked directly to an inability to become pregnant.

If you are having difficulty conceiving or if you are planning to conceive, consider to read this study, and discuss iodine deficiency with your obstetrician/gynecologist or primary care doctor.
