Re: low iodine diet
The low iodine diet involves more than just low/no salt. Iodized salt happens to contain much of the iodine we ingest today, but iodine can be found in many foods, chiefly dairy products, soy products, and eggs, to name a few. The best resource for the low iodine diet that I have found and used is a booklet that I downloaded from a site for thyroid cancer survivors. The booklet is a cookbook but also contains a nice one page list of the do's and don'ts which you can print out an carry with you. Remember too, it's a low iodine diet - you couldn't really do a no iodine diet but the lower you keep your intake, the better the chance that radioactive iodine will be absorbed by remaining thyroid cells and kill them.
best to you.
