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?
If we learn by our mistakes, I am working on one hell of an education.
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
