each iodoral is two drops of Lugols
standardized, so it would be 11 tablets. i believe the 130mg of KI
is per day until the danger has passed. someone may know more about this. the tablets that i bought once for experimenting with were nuke pills and they came in 65mg pills and the dossage was 2 pills. body weight may play a role in this.
How much KI
should I take?
The FDA has approved two different forms of KI—tablets and liquid—that people can take by mouth after a nuclear radiation emergency. Tablets come in two strengths, 130 milligram (mg) and 65 mg. The tablets are scored so they may be cut into smaller pieces for lower doses. Each milliliter (mL) of the oral liquid solution contains 65 mg of KI.
According to the FDA, the following doses are appropriate to take after internal contamination with (or likely internal contamination with) radioactive iodine:
* Adults should take 130 mg (one 130 mg tablet OR two 65 mg tablets OR two mL of solution).
* Women who are breastfeeding should take the adult dose of 130 mg.
* Children between 3 and 18 years of age should take 65 mg (one 65 mg tablet OR 1 mL of solution). Children who are adult size (greater than or equal to 150 pounds) should take the full adult dose, regardless of their age.
* Infants and children between 1 month and 3 years of age should take 32 mg (½ of a 65 mg tablet OR ½ mL of solution). This dose is for both nursing and non-nursing infants and children.
* Newborns from birth to 1 month of age should be given 16 mg (¼ of a 65 mg tablet or ¼ mL of solution). This dose is for both nursing and non-nursing newborn infants.
the dosage for infants just blows me away considering all the hoo-hoo about large omounts of Iodine
being ingested. anyone worried about giving their kids Iodine
should definitely NOT worry. the newborn to one month dose is about 2-3 drops of lugols. more and more i am thinking 100mg of Iodine
a day is a standard supplement. that is what dr abraham takes every day and he knows more than anyone about it.
