6 gms last night and nothing. Anyone have some ideas?
Yes, I found the same w/ ribose. It coincided w/ a drastically bad time in my illness. I'm not game to try it again.
Can you take it without testing? What link?
I think that this number may be an overestimation. I've read this in so many places on the web but studies like this one suggest that actual consumption is more like 1-3 mg/day.Oh - and the Japanese consume 12.5mg daily in diet.
Japanese iodine intake from edible seaweeds is amongst the highest in the world. Predicting the type and amount of seaweed the Japanese consume is difficult due to day-to-day meal variation and dietary differences between generations and regions. In addition, iodine content varies considerably between seaweed species, with cooking and/or processing having an influence on iodine content. Due to all these factors, researchers frequently overestimate, or underestimate, Japanese iodine intake from seaweeds, which results in misleading and potentially dangerous diet and supplementation recommendations for people aiming to achieve the same health benefits seen by the Japanese. By combining information from dietary records, food surveys, urine iodine analysis (both spot and 24-hour samples) and seaweed iodine content, we estimate that the Japanese iodine intake--largely from seaweeds--averages 1,000-3,000 μg/day (1-3 mg/day).
Typically you see the selenium recommendation in articles about using iodine with Hashimoto's. Supposedly, it can protect the thyroid from the iodine and reduce the TPO antibodies.So where does that fit?
But it's also worth noting that I do not have Hashi's or a major problem with hypothyroidism so someone else may feel differently based on their own situation.
