The National Diet and Nutrition Survey (NDNS) is designed to assess the diet, nutrient intake, and nutritional status of the general population aged 1·5 years and older living in private households in the UK. The NDNS is jointly funded by Public Health England, an executive agency of the Department of Health, and the UK Food Standards Agency. The most recent survey,1 published in 2018, related to the years 2014–15. The data indicated that the median urinary iodine concentration for women aged 16–49 years from 2014–15 was 102 μg/L, and 17% of the population had a concentration of less than 50 μg/L.
