Lack of this element during pregnancy will reduce the “IQ” of the fetus and baby, resulting in congenital mental retardation

According to statistics: iodine deficiency is a worldwide disease. The number of intellectual damage caused by iodine deficiency is at least 43million. However, about 30000 fetus aborted due to serious iodine deficiency are caused, and 120000 newborn babies suffer from mental or physical damage due to iodine deficiency. With the “neck disease” in previous years, more and more people are aware of the harm of excessive iodine intake. So people often deliberately reduce the intake of iodine. Since she married, she lived with her mother-in-law since she was married. She had hyperthyroidism. So she always used iodiless salt to cook. She had been eating her mother-in-law for food all the time. So I was very worried about whether her baby would be iodine deficient now? In fact, during pregnancy, many expectant mothers know to actively supplement folic acid, calcium and iron to ensure the nutrition balance of the fetus. How many pregnant mothers know how important iodine is to give birth to a healthy baby? The fetus is an important stage of cell differentiation and synthesis at 0-3 months. If the pregnant mother lacks iodine, it will directly affect the brain development of the fetus. When the embryo develops to 3-5 months, the nerve tissue of fetus begins to differentiate. If the iodine content is insufficient at this time, it will affect the development of fetal cerebral cortex, and even lead to “nerd” in the newborn. It can be seen that iodine plays an important role in the process of fetus to children. Especially in fetal period, normal, mature and sound brain tissue is mainly developed and completed in embryo period. If the mother is iodine deficient in pregnancy, it will directly affect the iodine content in the fetus, affect the development of the brain, and even appear hearing, language and motor development disorders after birth. The direct effect of iodine deficiency on the mother is the decrease of thyroid function. It also leads to the increase of abortion risk and infant mortality. As long as the human body takes iodine from food and drinking water, most of them come from food, less from drinking water, and a small part from air. During pregnancy, women can take iodine rich food once a week in addition to normal iodized salt. In food, such as kelp, seafood, lavender, eggs, meat and so on are very high iodine content food.
