Table 4 Clinical application of the models for predicting the risk of more than adequate iodine intake

From: Iodine monitoring models contribute to avoid adverse birth outcomes related more than adequate iodine intake

Trimester Score More than adequate risk Clinical recommendations
I 0.53 ~ 1.00 Medium Replace iodized salt or reduce iodine-rich food intake according to the model
  0.22 ~ 0.53 Medium Low Reduce iodine-rich food intake according to the model
  0.00 ~ 0.22 Low Monitor UIC
II 0.56 ~ 1.00 Medium High Do not eat iodine contained supplements and reduce iodine-rich food intake according to the model
  0.20 ~ 0.56 Medium Low Reduce iodine-rich food intake according to the model
  0.00 ~ 0.20 Low Monitor UIC
III 0.58 ~ 1.00 Medium High Don’t eat iodine contained supplements
  0.00 ~ 0.58 Low Monitor UIC
