Global Iodine Scorecard

0

The Iodine Global Network has updated the Global Scorecard and produced new maps and tables. For the first time, pregnant women have been presented separately and a map now presents the iodien status of pregnant women in each country. Pregnant women in the UK are classified as deficient. However, the iodine status of schoolchildren in the UK is now classified as sufficient, based on the results of the National Diet and Nutrition Survey.
