CONTENT AND LEARNING OBJECTIVES

Is iodine as a vital nutrient overlooked in the UK? Are there groups within the population who are at risk of deficiency? What is the evidence that young women have low iodine intake and status? What is the latest evidence for the role of iodine, as well as areas where future research is required? Practically what are the key dietary sources of iodine?


CLEAR UNDERSTANDING OF:

  • The role of iodine
  • How iodine status is assessed at a population level
  • Dietary sources of iodine in the UK diet
  • Potential for iodine excess from dietary sources
  • The iodine status of the UK population
  • The evidence for mild-to-moderate iodine deficiency in UK pregnant women
  • The evidence of the effects of iodine deficiency on child development
  • The lack of a biomarker of iodine status in an individual

BE ABLE TO:

  • Identify those who may be at risk of iodine deficiency
  • Suggest possible dietary approaches for ensuring adequate iodine intake
  • Identify key resources for health professionals and the public for information on iodine

Expert speaker:

Dr Sarah Bath
Lecturer in Public Health Nutrition and registered dietitian, University of Surrey

Dr Sarah Bath is a Lecturer in Public Health Nutrition at the University of Surrey and a registered dietitian. She has been working on iodine since 2006, investigating iodine status and its implications in UK pregnant women and women of childbearing age. Dr Bath held a Medical Research Council Fellowship (2013-2016) which developed her work on iodine in pregnancy and also included investigation of status in school-aged children. She published work in the Lancet (2013) that showed children born to UK women with low iodine status in early pregnancy were more likely to have low IQ and reading scores at 8-9 years. Dr Bath is the author of an iodine fact sheet, published by the British Dietetic Association, which can be used by health professionals and the public for information on iodine. She is a member of the Scientific Advisory Board of the World Iodine Association, and a committee member of the UK Iodine Group.
