❗️ Prolonged iodine deficiency can lead to limited production of hormones and the development of hypothyroidism—a sharp decrease in thyroid function.

Watch out for these signs of deficiency:

1️⃣ Constant feeling of fatigue and weakness
2️⃣ Daytime sleepiness sometimes combined with nighttime insomnia
3️⃣ Muscle weakness
4️⃣ Frequent and prolonged colds, activation of latent infections (herpes, shingles), as well as fungal and parasitic lesions of the skin and mucous membranes
5️⃣ Small injuries and wounds on the skin heal poorly
6️⃣ Swelling of tissues, especially noticeable around the eyes and face in the morning
Thickening of the skin and enlargement of the lips and tongue may also develop
7️⃣ Body weight steadily increases despite no change in diet
8️⃣ Decreased blood pressure and increased heart rate ❤️

Don't let iodine deficiency sneak up on you! If you notice any of these symptoms, talk to your doctor about getting your iodine levels checked. A simple blood test can help determine if you need to make changes to your diet or take supplements to keep your thyroid healthy and happy!
