What will happen if intake of iodine
Question:

What will happen if intake of iodine in our diet is low ?

Solution:
  1. Low intake of iodine will affect production of thyroxine. Reduced thyroxine reduces metabolism of protein, carbohydrate and fat. Physical activity and consumption of energy are impaired.
  2. With continued reduced intake of iodine, thyroid gland enlarges (in order to produce more thyroxine). It results in swelling of neck called goitre.
