Iodine Deficiency Leads to Problems of Pregnancy

If the lack of iodine in women is not treated at the time of time, then there is a problem in conceiving, infertility, the risk of related complications related to the nervous system in the new born. Iodine is an important micro-nutrient in the human body, which is essential for the formation of thyroid hormones. Iodine deficiency is a lack of iodine element; it is an essential nutrient element of our diet. Iodine deficiency leads to hypo thyroidism.

Dr. Arvind Vaid, IVF expert of Indira IVF Hospital, points out that iodine deficiency in women’s body is directly related to the functioning of their reproductive system. Hypothyroidism is the most prominent cause of infertility and abortion. When thyroid gland’s functioning is slow, it is unable to produce enough amounts of hormones, which inhibits the release of eggs from the ovaries which cause infertility. Women, who suffer from hypothyroidism, have problems in sex, disturbances related to menstrual cycles, and problems occurring in pregnancy.

According to Dr. Vaid, the treatment of hypothyroidism is an important part of efforts to remove infertility. If infertility problem persists after the treatment of hypothyroidism then infertility requires another treatment.
