Quoted from Damon
Does anyone know if Dr. D has written anything about how to deal with (possible) hypothyroidism? Would he recommend supplementing iodine in any way, or is 'follow your SWAMI' directions enough for long-term 'healing'?

I know he spoke of thyroid issues in the Encyclopedia - I don't have mine available now to discuss what it says specifically...

"From the published data, the skin iodine patch test is NOT a reliable method to assess whole body sufficiency for iodine. Many factors play a role in the disappearance of the yellow color of iodine from the surface of the skin. For example, if iodine is reduced to iodide by the skin, the yellow color of iodine will disappear because iodide is white. In order to regenerate iodine on the skin, one needs to apply an oxidant such as hydrogen peroxide, complicating the test further. The evaporation of iodine from the skin increases with increased ambient temperatures and decreased atmospheric pressure due to weather conditions and altitude. For example, the yellow color of iodine will disappear much faster in Denver, Colorado at 5,000 feet above sea level then Los Angeles, California at sea level, irrespective of the amount of bioavailable iodine. The iodine/iodide loading test (4) is much more accurate and it is now available from two laboratories:"

PC, nice article! Before that conclusion, he also says:
One can conclude that skin application of iodine is an effective if not efficient and practical way for supplementation of iodine with an expected bioavailability of 6 to 12% of the total iodine applied to the skin. The serum iodide levels were 10 times higher 2 hr post intervention with oral ingestion of 100 mg iodide than with 160 mg iodine applied to the skin.

a site that does iodine loading says: the body is deficient until it reaches the point that 90% of ingested iodine is excreted in the urine.

"Ideally, all patients should have an iodine loading test prior to orthoiodosupplementation. This test is one in which 50 mg of iodine is given after discard of the first morning void. All urine is collected for the next 24 hours including the first morning urine void the next day. The urine sample is then sent to my laboratory, FFP Laboratory for testing (21). The lab is a CLIA approved high complexity testing laboratory in the state of North Carolina. The testing that is done is using the method as described in previous articles . To date we have done over 3,000 loading tests. Iodine therapy is then instituted using 50 mg/day. The body becomes iodine sufficient in about three months.
