If people do not have enough iodine in their diet then what will happen?

Answers (1)


Iodine is an essential element. It is mainly needed for the production of thyroid hormone in our body. If an individual is not having enough iodine in their diet, our body cannot make enough thyroid hormone to function. Thus, it will lead to the iodine deficiency and can cause enlargement of the thyroid gland also referred to as goiter.
