via urine testing it showed I had a iodine deficiency. The result was 88, ranges are 200-2000. I believe all my deficiencies (vitamins and minerals) are a result of untreating hypothyroidism for 6 years.
When I discovered the iodine deficiency I talked to my GP and she said she didn't know what to do with it. So that was it..I can't ignore it so I talked to my naturopathic doctor (she helps me with the right vitamine + mineral supplements and dose). She said I needed to take iodine and a lot to solve this.
So I'm taking capsules which contain 400mcg iodine, 200mcg selenium, 20mg zinc.
I also take liquid iodine, she told me to increase 5 drops a week till a maximum of 40 drops. 1 drop contains 75mcg iodine.
I'm now taking the capsules and 10 drops so this is a total of 1170mcg.
I'm a bit confused as I also read this is dangerous. I don't have antibodies. Is this okay? I'm now 4 weeks on 75mcg levo.
