BTD Forums  /  Supp Right For Your Type  /  Bladderwrack

I wasn't sure where to post this but this seemed like the right place.  

I was looking into getting the bladderwrack.  The section where it tells you about the supplement says that it's not recommended for people with thyoid disease.  

I have hypothyroidism which I regulate with synthroid.    Is this warning for people diagnosed with something more serious like a goiter?  

I was curious as to why I would not be able to take this?  Is there an ingredient in the supplement that would interfere with my thyroid function?

I would appreciate any feedback.

some have been able to regulate their thyroid function by following the guidelines accordingly.

have you checked the health library series yet, for more targeted advice according to your issues?

there are eight titles, and one of them is diabetes, also aging...etc

the iodine in fucus activates your thyroid, so supplementing just yet might be contra productive since you are under medication.

healing your body will take time and determination.....you re in the right track, though!!

I would go the strict lectin avoidance diet route for 6 months and go in to your doctor to adjust your medication down if need be.  The bladderwarck would be like getting an extra dose of synthroid. If you can get your synthroid medication down to a minimal level through diet alone you might want to consider replacing it with bladderwrack
