Iodine-Induced Hypothyroidism

Iodine-induced hypothyroidism occurs when there is insufficient iodine intake, leading to an
underactive thyroid gland. This condition is more common in areas where iodine levels in the soil and

Personalized Integrative Care and Management

Treatment involves medications that inhibit the production of thyroid hormones and beta-blockers to
manage symptoms. In some cases, reducing iodine intake is necessary. Long-term management
may include the use of radioactive iodine or thyroid surgery, depending on the severity and response
to initial treatments.
