    Iodine

    It would appear that most docs state not to take iodine when on thyroid meds because the meds contain iodine and it would be unnecessary/overdose you. So what is the problem with having too much iodine? I have never heard of it causing a problem although obviously too too much of anything can be harmful. The only thing I know of that too much iodine causes is hyperthyroidism (not a problem if you are hypo LOL) and a decrease in lung problems for people who are prone to them (again this is more of an advantage if you have asthma etc). Does anyone know of any unhelpful iodine overdose symptoms?

    All I know is Iodine works for some but makes their condition worse for others. I don't take it for fear it may aggravate my hashimotos.
