I'm 22 Y.O.A. I've been taking Iodine (2 drops a day) I'm not on medication. I'm not allergic to anything. Somehow my period did not come. Why?
OrthoIodination: I presume that you are taking Lugol`s solution. Each drop has 3.0 to 3.125 mg of Iodine ( 1.875 of KI and 1.25 of Iodine ). This is probably not the cause of your period not coming. Can you be pregnant? If you want to take this amount of Iodine per day you should check your spot urine for Iodine and then a 24 hours urine collection for Iodine after 50 mg of Iodine. ...Read more
How can I regenarate my thyroid gland to work&stop medication after i had surgery to remove it once&then had an iodine treatment to remove it fully ?
4 months pregnant with graves' disease, would surgery or radio iodine be a good option? As medication is not improving the illness.
Graves pregnancy: Radioiodine is not used in pregnancy. It will destroy the baby's thyroid. Usually medications (ptu (propylthiouracil) (propylthiouracil) preferred) and surgery if necessary. Care has to be taken not to damage the baby's thyroid from high doses of ptu (propylthiouracil). If surgery is to be done, it should be during the 2nd trimester. You should be seen by a high risk pregnancy specialist. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

If someone is allergic to Iodine, is there a strong possibility they are allergic to IV dye as well?
Short Ans is MAYBE: In most people's minds when you say IV contrast dye the word IODINE likely comes up....In other words, if we were on MEDICAL FAMILY FEUD and Richard Dawson were to say, "Name the top 5 chemical substances contained in IV DYE...." Well, first you'd ask to see the guy's credentials since Dawson's been dead for awhile now....Second, you'd realize that Iodine is only TYPE of IV dye but good to check ...Read more
Antithyroid drugs: Methimazole and PTU (propylthiouracil) (propylthiouricil) inhibit iodination of thyroglobulin, but not the transporter. I think you are thinking about perchlorate. Perchlorate is a chemical found in fertilizer, rocket fuel, and other industrial uses. It is an environmental contaminant. It was used years ago clinically for hyperthyroidism, but no one uses it now. ...Read more
Yes: Iodine is an essential ingredient for making thyroid hormone. Your body needs about 100 mg of iodine daily. Most Americans get much more than this, because most processed foods in the US include salt supplemented with iodine. It is also present in many commercial baked goods as a preservative/dough conditioner, in red & brown food dyes, and in seafood from the ocean. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
