How much iodine in diet after TT for cancer?

Hi all! Just curious: Should you increase or decrease your iodine intake after a TT for cancer? I'm getting over RAI right now and was on the low-iodine diet for that. Should I keep my intake low or does iodine help my body regulate on the meds? I'm on 125 mcg Synthroid, just started two days ago but already feeling a small difference (my TSH was 164 before RAI). Thanks for any and all advice!

Re: How much iodine in diet after TT for cancer?

I only regulated iodine intake for my RAI scan---so the remaining tissue would uptake the radiation, and not foods from my diet, and obliterate the remnant tissue.

Otherwise, I don't observe my iodine intake at all.

Good luck with all the scans, let us know what happens!
