Food for Radioactive Iodine Treatment

I have been through radioactive iodine treatment several times now, and have always had trouble finding packaged snack foods that are salt-free, dairy-free, soy-free, ect. I now have done researched and found different products that fit the criteria for the low-iodine diet. I have been toying with the idea of combining these products and selling it as a "low iodine diet starter kit". It would save so much time with not having to run to different grocery stores and natural health food stores. Not to mention they sometimes can have really high prices. I would like to know your thoughts on the idea. Is this something that would be of interest to any of you that are taking radioactive iodine or have taken it? Thank you!! Amanda

Re: Food for Radioactive Iodine Treatment

That's a nice idea!

Maybe you can share it with the thyroid cancer organization (the one that has the cookbook), and even make it a fundraiser with them?

My surgeon is involved there, they have support meetings monthly in many states, and I bet people there would be grateful for your idea.

By the way, when it's the jewish passover holiday, the kosher for passover items can't have any soy, so you can find many packaged items then---this term "parve" means no diary, so a "parve" chocolate bar or ices that are kosher during passover time are great products for your idea.

Let us know how it goes!

Re: Food for Radioactive Iodine Treatment

I agree with Reece, I think it's a great idea to share with others. The LI diet is NOT an easy one to stick to, so any shortcuts would be very handy. The LI cookbook I got from my Dr. was MOST helpful. Knowing which store-bought foods are acceptable would make it even better.
