Adios with iodine and thyroid


As posted before on this site my daughter has all the symptoms of hypo but over the past 3 years her TSH has been 4.1 4.3 3.9 the last one was 2.5 so G.P. would not treat. She has just realised she was taking Adios slimming pills which contain Iodine when the last test was taken, would this have made her TSH lower. She wants to see Dr. S but is wondering if he will treat her with a TSH of 2.5 so she would like to know if the Iodine could have lowered the TSH

Many thanks browny

Iodine has some very odd effects. In some circumstances it might increase thyroid hormone levels; in others it can reduce them.

My advice would be to explain exactly what happened and see how he interprets the situation as it now is.



Many thanks Rod
