with a total thyroidectomy, is iodine intake a big issue?
My newish doctor who's supposed to be looking into why I have a problem standing up for very long without getting lightheaded, wants me to do a kit that tells about my body's iodine level, or something like that. He's an MD thats gone holistic. I had my thyroid removed, am on replacement, so am wondering if iodine is that big of an issue???? I mean, I don't have a thyroid to assimilate iodine and create thyroxine, so am I missing something here??? I eat tuna and out and about, so I know I'm getting adequate iodine in my diet.
