I am on thyroxine and have trouble losing weidht so iwent to see a prvate nutrionist recently and had a 24 hour Halides Urine test. This shows that I have very low iodine levels and high fluoride levels and so could explain the difficulty of losing weight.
I wanted to check it out with my gp but he says he doesn't know anything about it - I think he doesn't like me going tto see someone else!
I'm going back too the nutritionist but want to get some ideas of what to do about this before i go. I think I'ce read that you can't take iodine supplements if you're on thyroxine.
Any idea please?
