I think both my daughter and I are rather low in Iodine.

1) First off almost all Danes are low due to our soil.

2)We eat very small amounts of fish - my daughter none except a few scallops and prawns a month.

3)I eat some dairy - my daughter only cheese and butter.

4) I don´t use salt with added iodine. or food that contains added iodinezed salt

Both of us seem tired, fatigue and cold at the moment.
( and our  vit D and Ironlevels are fine- my iron a tad low but not much )
My daughter hands are freezing.... and we both have rather dry skin.
Both of us have low blodpressue and a tendency to get dizzy.
She is slim but have some issues with frequent and rather prolonged but not heavy periods.
My periods are pretty heavy and frequent ( every 26-28 days- used to have a cyclus of 31 days for most of my life)
and I have a small fibroid-that I keep ok with the protochol for hormones( vitex etc)

I can´t do the test with Iodine since we can´t get the product here- and really it is hard to get any iodine supplements.

But I was wondering if it would be enough to add some seaweedsalt to our diet ( I use reg seasalt)  and maybe some bladderwack tablets.???

OR should we try some iodine supplement.
I can get one with Potassium iodide- is that ok ?

There's not a whole lot of iodine in sea salt. Some, yes, but not a lot.\

IMO, it's best to  get nutrients from foods rather than chemical formulations. Since you have access to bladderwrack tablets (that's a kind of seaweed, right?) I'd guess that's a better choice than the potassium iodide.

OTOH, if bladderwrack is an "avoid" for somebody, that individual would probably do better with the potassium iodide.

I agree Ruthie- I prefer to get my nutrients from food.

Since Emma is O and I B - Bladderwack tablets ( seaweed Fucus Vesico- can´t spell it) should be OK for both of us.

I'd start with the bladderwrack  to build up your systems.

I believe Lin posted a list of food that were good for thyroid health:

these foods are for the Iodine; in addition to sea veg, are seafood, clams, shrimp, haddock, oysters, salmon, sardines.

A secondary source eggs, asparagus, lima beans, mushrooms, spinach, sesame seeds, Swiss chard, and garlic.

The list covers other vit. and min needed for your thyroid.

Thanks

Asparagus will be ready in no time

Thanks PC - the troble is that none of us really get much of the high Iodine food.

I am getting some bladderwrack tablets today - and monitor how both of us feel the next month or so.

Try the seaweed whatever you can get in your country.  When my energy is dragging I chew on Lavor Nori seaweed.

How does it taste ???
- I dont really like the taste of fishy things and I had some nori seaweed and it tasted slightly fishy

I just noticed that on my swami
kelp. kombu. nori, wakame  and spirilina are all diamonds  
So i should look into the seaweed I guess

I have tried the wakame as a salad - and that was ok  

I got some bladderwrack tabl yesterday - and will try the next month and see if we feel better.

Dr Oz had a doctor on his show a month or so ago and he explained what the all the different seaweeds were good for. The best seaweed to use for iodine was Kombu. You break one piece in half add it to 4 cups of water and allow it to simmer for 20 minutes. Then you drink the water and discard the kombu.

It tastes salty not fishy.  I chew it dry.  I also put Dulse flakes on my salad.  You can cook it too but I’ve never done that.

spirilina taste like spinach to me. I sprinkle it on my eggs, and I like it on my rice cake, with melted cheese than sprinkle it, with garlic on top.  (pizza)

Seaweed is definitely an aquired taste. It does have a salty/fish taste to it. Different varieties have slightly different flavors, but there's no getting around the "sea flavor" in sea veggies. It's something you need to either "suck up and get used to" or take in  tablet form so you don't have to taste it.
