    Kelp question

    I started taking Kelp caps about a month ago. Two weeks ago I developed a very dry mouth and lips. A week or so ago I read online that you're supposed to take Kelp M-F 3 weeks on and 1 week off. I was also taking Selenium on occasion, but not that often because I get hyper if I take it every day, and my TSH goes way down. Now I'm wondering if this Kelp is causing me to go hyper and that in turn is causing the dry mouth? The times I've gone hyperthyroid before I've never had the dry mouth, just wide-awake and restless...which I also am at this moment...WIDE awake. I FEEL hyper. Does anyone know if kelp can cause this?

    Re: Kelp question

    Hi, I found the Kelp did me feel more 'alert' etc when I took it - although not to the extreme that you describe. However, I have head it said that one must be careful with taking Kelp supplements as if you take too much it can 'throw' the thyroid into a complete tizzy, and it will crash, thus resulting in the opposite of the intended effect. This may be why you have heard about taking Kelp on and off.
