Resumen

JARA YORG, Jorge Antonio et al. Gestational diabetes, hypothyroidism and iodine urinary concentration in pregnant women. Urinary iodine in schoolage children in Paraguay: Iodine excess in salt and hyper and hypothyroidism risk. Rev. chil. nutr. [online]. 2016, vol.43, n.1, pp.54-61. ISSN 0717-7518.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-75182016000100008.

The main inclicator of iodine nutritional status of salt for human con-sumption is the urinary concentration of iodine, which is useful in monitoring universal levels in salt. Paraguay has suffered deficiency in salt with highprevalence of goiter in thepopulation reaching48.6%. In 2000, results of the ThyroidMobileproject in Latin America showed a goiter prevalence of 17% but 79.6% of the consumed iodized salt was adequate in paraguayan households (more than 15 ppm of iodine). The average values of iodine urinary concentration in 4487 scholars was 437 µg/L, 30% of the average value was between the ideal of 100 to 199 µg/L and 46.1% were above 300 mg/L, with risk of excess iodine. Urinary concentration of iodine during pregnancy was measure for the first time in Paraguay in 200 women; the average was 484 µg/L but diabetes and hypothyroidism during pregnancy was observe in 50% of them. Objective: Determine iodine concentration in urine of the school population in 17 departments of the country and measure the levels of iodine in urine in 200 pregnant women from 15-37 years of age and their levels of glycaemia, and thyroid TSH. Methods: During the years, 2006 and 2007 were evaluated 4487 school randomized, in a probabilistic sample, 3198 in rural areas and 1,289 in urban areas; casual urine samples was collected to determine iodine content. The urinary concentration of iodine in two hundredpregnant women, concentration of iodine in salt, and levels of glycaemia and TSH were also included in the present study All candidates agreed with the informed consent under the ethics rules. Results: These data showed by comparing the levels of iodine in urine concentration in more than adequate and excessive level but this last was markedly elevated (93.8%). The median level greater than 300 µg/L was observed in 100% of the 4,487 urine samples, while the median urinary iodine levels of300-500 µg/L was 91.3% and above 500 was 9.7%. These levels showed the risk of developing thyroid autoimmune diseases. In 200 pregnancy women the average of urine concentration of iodine was 498 pcg/L, subclinical and clinical hypothyroidism and gestational diabetes was 50% of both. Conclu-sion: To obtain normal median urinary iodine levels is necessary to decrease the amount of iodine in salt. The main recommendation is to insist on adequate monitoring of iodized salt consumption. Also continue surveillance and monitoring in sentinel sites reporting the importance of adequate iodine intake of the population especially in pregnant women that also need to be warm about the diabetes during pregnancy but also a regimen is necessary to keep them within the normal levels of glycemia. The subclinical hypothyroidism has been also studied in the same patients.
