Posted in FYI, NUTRIENTS, SILENT ISSUES tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , at 8:18 pm by PCOSLady



RISK FACTORS ~ May Lead To Iodine Deficiency


Following is a list of potential risk factors that may lead to iodine deficiency:

  1. Low dietary iodine
  2. Selenium deficiency
  3. Pregnancy
  4. Exposure to radiation
  5. Increased intake/plasma levels of goitrogens, such as calcium
  6. Gender (higher occurrence in women)
  7. Smoking tobacco
  8. Alcohol (reduced prevalence in users)
  9. Oral contraceptives (reduced prevalence in users)
  10. Perchlorates
  11. Thiocyanates
  12. Age (for different types of iodine deficiency at different ages)


In the U.S., the use of iodine has decreased over concerns of overdoses since mid-20th century, and the iodine antagonists bromine, perchlorate and fluoride have become more ubiquitous. In particular, around 1980 the practice of using potassium iodate as dough conditioner in bread and baked goods was gradually replaced by the use of other conditioning agents such as bromide .

~ Insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-1), also called somatomedin C, is a protein that in humans is encoded by the IGF1 gene.[1][2] IGF-1 has also been referred to as a “sulfation factor”[3] and its effects were termed “nonsuppressible insulin-like activity” (NSILA) in the 1970s.
IGF-1 is a hormone similar in molecular structure to insulin. It plays an important role in childhood growth and continues to have anabolic effects in adults. A synthetic analog of IGF-1, mecasermin is used for the treatment of growth failure.
IGF-1 consists of 70 amino acids in a single chain with three intramolecular disulfide bridges. IGF-1 has a molecular weight of 7,649 daltons.
~ The IGF signaling pathway has a pathogenic role in cancer. Studies have shown that increased levels of IGF lead to increased growth of existing cancer cells.

Gum Disease and Other Systemic Diseases
Researchers have suggested that a link between osteoporosis and bone loss in the jaw. Studies suggest that osteoporosis may lead to tooth loss because the density of the bone that supports the teeth may be decreased, which means the teeth no longer have a solid foundation.
Respiratory Disease
Research has found that bacteria that grow in the oral cavity can be aspirated into the lungs to cause respiratory diseases such as pneumonia, especially in people with periodontal disease.
Researchers found that men with gum disease were 49% more likely to develop kidney cancer, 54% more likely to develop pancreatic cancer, and 30% more likely to develop blood cancers.
Bacterial Endocarditis
Gum disease exists in about 75% of Americans, and many do not realize that risk factors associated with serious health concerns such as heart disease and stroke have been associated with gum disease. Researchers have found that people with gum disease are almost twice as likely to suffer from coronary artery disease. This type of heart disease occurs when plaques (deposits of fat, cholesterol, calcium and other material) form in the walls of the coronary arteries, causing the walls to become thicker. That essentially makes it harder for the blood to flow through, limiting the amount of oxygen and nutrients that are necessary for proper heart function.
~ Bacterial endocarditis is a dangerous infection that involves the lining of the heart and is commonly caused when bacteria enters the blood during medical procedures. During dental treatment, a common organism found in the mouth known as Streptococcus Viridan may enter the bloodstream and travel to the heart. This may cause infected blood clot formations that are able to travel to the brain, lungs, kidney, and spleen. Fifty percent of bacterial endocarditis cases are caused by Streptococcus Viridans.
