I have been looking for information related possible medical outcomes related to pagophagia. A coworker of mine developed hypothyroidism; her Dr. told her that it was secondary to her pagophagia, (because it is a regulatory organ- regulating several things like hormone production and thermostasis). I can not find anything to substantiate this. I found some vitamin and mineral defiencies related to eating ice, instead of a healthy diet. The most comon being iron defiency, which used to be considered a cause and now is being looked at as a possible result of pica instead. But I really cant' find any other medical related information. Do you have acess to vay?
