A convenient way to test for iodine levels is to measure it in urine since more than 90 % is excreted. However, a problem with urinary iodine measurements has always been in the procedure for collecting it. With most tests, urine produced over 24-hours must be collected, which is logistically very difficult.

This test allows for testing relatively small amounts of urine that have that have been dried on FDA approved filter paper. This innovative and accurate method for detecting Iodine levels is easy to perform and can be done at home.

With iodine playing so many different roles optimizing health and preventing disease, it is essential that adequate iodine intake is maintained and problems associated with excessive iodine intake are identified.
