1) In order to establish iodine status in an individual with thyroid disease or suspected thyroid disease, I suggest using a 24 hour iodine urine test and a serum thyroglobulin test.
2) Before reaching this conclusion, some issues should be considered: (i) the quality control of the laboratory measurement; and (ii) one should also note that there is a difference in measured thyroglobulin levels if different test assays are used, and this can be a problem for generalisation in using the thyroglobulin test.
