many arguments.). Anyway he showed me a new product by BRACCO pharmaceuticals with iodine supposed to help the transformation of thyroxine into t3 etc. I have hashimoto's and doctors have never said for or against extra iodine. I live in the Val Padana area of Italy which is a plain surrounded by mountainous areas and doesn't have much iodine. However I don't have a goiter , swelling or nodules. Any thoughts? I'm not too eager to test new things as I am doing 'fairly well'
