Zeitschrift fur die Gesamte Innere Medizin und ihre Grenzgebiete 45(1): 8-11

Iodine prophylaxis was introduced in the German Democratic Republic (GDR) in 1985-86 by iodizing 84% of packaged salt with KIO3 32 mg/kg salt and adding iodized minerals to animal feeds. At the beginning of the project average renal I excretion was 19.0+or-1.0 micro g/g creatinine and there was second-degree I deficiency. It was higher in the north than in the south of the country (20.3+or-1.0 vs. 13.4+or-1.5 micro g/g creatinine).
