IODINE IN NAIL POLISHES

IODINE IN NAIL POLISHES To the Editor:— It has come to my attention that certain nail polishes contain inorganic iodine or compounds containing iodides. Those physicians who use radioactive iodine studies in thyroid evaluation should be alerted for this possible contaminant. Several patients seen recently apparently absorbed enough iodine to elevate the protein-bound iodine level as well as depress the thyroid uptake. Recognition of this in tabulating the results of laboratory studies is important. I am not aware that this information is generally appreciated by members of the medical profession. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png JAMA American Medical Association
