In this study, animal models with different iodine intakes were constructed using potassium iodate (KIO3). The models included four experimental groups (low-iodine group one (LI, 0μg/L iodine), low-iodine group two (LII, 5μg/L iodine), high-iodine group one (HI, 3000μg/L iodine), and high-iodine group two (HII, 10000μg/L iodine)) and one control group (NI, 100μg/L iodine). There were 20 female rats in each group, and 8 offspring were chosen from each group following birth to assess metabolic alterations.
