No effect

Thyroid_gland
Low radiation dose thyroid uptake test with radio tracer I123 or I131. Thyroid gland picks up the iodine tracer. I-123 has a shorter half life than I-131 (13 hrs vs. 8.1 days), so use of I-123 exposes the body to less radiation. Thyroid gland function not affected by scan. Should not have test if pregnant or breast feeding. Tests are for thyroid function determining hypo vs hyperthyroidism.

Creatine

Open-uri20121114-26575-i43eay
Many people are trying to build muscle faster and turning to supplements in a belief that they will help. Creatine can be dangerous because it could damage the kidneys especially if you get dehydrated. Several professional athletes have been hospitalized due to complications from creatine. Better to eat a high protein diet with a regular workout. Don't try to cheat by using supplements.
