Re: Iodoral

If you have Hashimoto's and they are trying to treat it by boosting your iodine. It probably has made things worse. Did they test you for Hashimoto's beefore treating your iodine issues? What symptoms have gotten worse?

Re: Iodoral

My doc had me use Iodoral (I have Hashi's) and it made things waaaaaay worse for me. It's helpful for some but not for everyone.

Re: Iodoral

I didn't use Iodoral, but self-treated with Kelp years ago for the same reason--suspected Iodine deficiency. My response was that it made my symptoms MUCH worse.

Here's the situation, as far as I have learned:

If you are Iodine deficient, and that is your only deficiency, then correcting your Iodine deficiency will make you feel better.

If you are iodine deficient AND Selenium deficient then you may well feel worse if you add Iodine without supplementing Selenium, too. This was me, and I crashed HARD.

If you are not Iodine deficient and all else is well, then adding Iodine can make you Hyperthyroid--which will cause symptoms.

I have a suspicion that the second scenario is the likely problem.

Re: Iodoral

Judi,
Iodine can cause a detox reaction in the body, with symptoms similiar to hypo, fatigue, muscle aches,fever,brain fog,or even acne.

With the hypo symptoms, you are probably doing a bromide detox.
What you need to do to get rid of detox symptoms is 1/2tsp celtic sea salt dissolved in warm water followwed by 12-16 oz pure water. May repeat in 30-45 minutes if needed,what this does is helps to push bromide out. (that is called salt loading)
The vit C is very important while taking iodine, it assist in the healthy function of the NIS (sodium iodine symporters) which allows the cells to pull iodine into them.

My own experience with lugols solution was initially, I started on 2 drops ,which is 13mg,now I am up to 7 drops,which is about 45 mg. I was having a few issues with feeling really hypo too . I did the salt load and saw a big improvement.
Like I said look up Bromide detox. kathy
