The iodine supply of newborn infants and adults after the institution of the iodine prophylaxis in the former east germany an interim report and comparison with newborn infants in prague czechoslovakia

Zeitschrift fuer Klinische Medizin 46(13): 965-968

Before the institution of the iodine prophylaxis in the former GDR the weight of the thyroid gland of n = 9 newborn infants was markedly enlarged with 3.51 g. After the institution of the iodine prophylaxis the renal excretion of iodine of n = 63 newborn infants increased significantly to 3.40 .+-. 0.34 .mu.gI/dl (M .+-. SEM). But that value still is remarkably lower than in Prague/CSFR, with 16.10 .+-. 4.28 .mu.gI/dl, where an iodine prophylaxis is performed since more than 25 years. In adults we observed an increase of the iodine excretion, too, from 30.50 .+-. 2.50 .mu.gI/g Creatinine (n = 52) before the start of the prophylaxis to 41.75 .+-. 2.80 .mu.gI/g Creatinine (p < 0.005; n = 70) after its institution. From 1987 to 1989 there was no further definite increase of iodine excretion.
