The Characteristics Of Urinary Iodine Excretion And Hemoglobin On Hyperthyroidism Women
Hyperthyroidism is a phenomenon that is now often found in areas of endemic iodine deficiency. This
conditions caused by the hyperactivity of the thyroid gland, increase in metabolism of energy and nutrients, and influences to
occurs of anemia and iodine deficiency. The objective of this study was identify of urinary iodine excretion (UIE) and
hemoglobin (Hb) level on women of childbearing age with hyperthyroidism and compared with euthyroid subjects. This
observational study was conducted in the sub district of Prambanan Sleman regency, consisted of 31 subjects with
hyperthyroidism and 81 euthyroid subjects, beginning with measurement of thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) and free
thyroxine (FT4). UIE were measured by acid digestion method, while the hemoglobin was measured by cyanmet technique.
Analysis of differences in UIE and Hb were tested using independent t test. The results showed that UIE level on both of
groups spread on the deficit, optimal and excessive category, category anemia and normal also occurs in both groups.
Independent t test analysis proved there was no difference in UIE level (p = 0,384) and in Hb level there was difference (p =
0.011) between hyperthyroidism subjects and euthyroid subjects.
