Iodine...bad for Graves but good for Hashi's??

Just wondering. I have Graves and was always told by others to avoid iodine in salt.Our thyroids "take up" too much of it. I use non iodized salt. It can give us more hyper symptoms, especially if we aren't controlled by meds. What about people with Hashi's? Are they supposed to have iodine? I thought goiters had to do with LACK of it? What's the role iodine plays in thyroid disease? I have always tried to avoid it since diagnosis along with aspartame and msg.
