I know that this topic has come up often but I still see no definitive answers on the specific question of supplementing with iodine whilst taking NDT, Iodine insufficiency presents very similar symptoms to hypothyroid. Just a few weeks ago I started on WP NDT, i'm up to 2 x 0.5 grain/day and not noticed any effects as yet and intend to gradually increase dosage according to guidelines given on this site and on STTM.
My labs done in Feb '16 were (i) TSH = 3.5 (ii) : FREE T3 = 4.1 pmol/L (3.9 - 6.7)
FREE T4 = 13.4 pmol/L (12 - 22)
(iv) TPA = 4
I am aware that iodine can cause problems if you have Hashis but my TPA is very low so no problem there and many well known medics eg Dr. Brownstein have spoken extensively about iodine supplementing.
My specific questions are;
1) Has anyone else tried this ? Please give detailed feedback
2) How much gap to leave between taking NDT (i'm doing morning and early afternoon) and (Lugols) iodine if at all ? I want to split dose the iodine too for better effect so it would be a lot easier if I didn't have to leave a gap as I don't want to be taking the iodine late in the day.
