I am reading that we all need iodine in our diets, organic iodine, not the type found in common table salt. I don't have a thyroid gland. Removed 14 years ago due to accidentally finding thyCa under a benign lump on my thyroid gland. I am confused as I use levo thyroxine 5 x 100 and 2 x 125 which has been reduced quite a lot over the years. Started out on 150mcg a day. Over the years have had a lot of problems and lost a lot of bone in my hips (nobody told me about calcium levels), so now I have one hip which has been replaced. I try and keep to a good diet and exercise, but have always to be mindful of my bones. Anyway, should I be taking small amounts of the organic (Nascent) iodine which I saw in a health article. I will post my blood results also at some time, so the knowledgeable people on this site can check them out. Many thanks. Wonderful site.
