AbstractObjective: To evaluate the ranges of iodine intake and iodine status in two subgroups of the Norwegian population. Design: The participants in the Tromsø group (n=63) had a normal diet. The participants in the Bergen group (n=44) comprised people with a variable intake of fish and dairy products.
