Is this safe for a thyroidian?
It looks from the research as if the iodine is potentially a bad idea anyway, but on top of that I have multiple allergies. I’ve never knowingly had a problem with an allergy to iodine, but then I’d never had allergies to anything else before the last eight years.
In that time I have had reactions to three different types of antibiotics (from different families), an anti fungal, an anti-viral and the fillers in some brands of levo, with either rashes or skin swelling. I also now have problems with cleaning products which make me wheeze, although I am not, as far as I know, asthmatic.
I’m supposed to be having my heart scanned because of episodes of chest pain of unknown origin. These started when I was very hypo on T3 only, continued when I was un-medicated, stopped when I started on levo and came back when my FT4 levels settled at just over mid-range. Since I put my levo up another 25mcg (to 150mcg) I have had no further problems, so it’s beginning to look as if they may just be thyroid-related..
I’m not frightened of the scanner or anything, but I am really worried now about the process. Does anyone have any advice?
