    Iodine Test Questions?

    I am suppose to have an iodine test this Tues (Iodine I-123 Uptake and Scan). The doctor gave me a low iodine diet to follow for 48 hours and especially do not eat any shell fish.

    I have read you should follow a low iodine diet for 2 weeks, should I postpone the test and do it for 2 weeks instead of the 48 hours?

    I have an enlarged thyroid and nodular which he thinks might be a tumor.
    He said the iodine test would tell him if he needs to do a biopsy.

    Blood work came back okay except for C-Peptide which was too high.

    TSH 1.50 (.34-5.6)
    T4 Free 1.14 (.61-1.76)
    PTH Intact 52 (12-65)
    Pth intact w/ca 9.5 (8.5-10.6)
    urine Calicum 10.6

    Are the test below normal?

    Microsom tpo ab <10 ( 0-34 IU/mL)
    Anti thyroid Ab <20 (0-40 iu/mL)

    My Vitamin D, B12 is low. He is testing me for Ferrehin, Magnesium, Phosphorous, B-12 & D again and also Uric Acid.
    He thinks I have celiac disease.

    Just follow your doctor's requirements, this is a regular scan, just lower your iodine intake (salt, fish, milk) for the time the doctor says.
