Re: Need some comforting words here!

Why are you taking so much iodine?

Dr. Brownstein recommends 100mg only in cases of cancer or serious deficiency disease such as PCOS or Uterus problems.
Otherwise, he recommends 50mg (or less) for maintenance.

Dr. Brownstein,
"Having an Iodine loading test performed can help guide you in the proper dosing of iodine. My experience has shown that most adults will do well taking Iodine in the range of 25-50 mg/day. Children need lower doses and can be dosed appropriately based on their size. My experience has shown that a healthy individual taking 50 mg of iodine/day will achieve Iodine sufficiency in approximately 6 months.

However, 50 mg/day of iodine in an individual ill with a serious illness such as cancer or an autoimmune disorder may be insufficient to meet their needs. My clinical and laboratory experience has shown that ill individuals generally need more iodine as compared to healthy individuals. At 25-50 mg/day of iodine, it may take years for an ill individual to become iodine sufficient. In these cases, I sometimes recommend increased dosages of iodine."

IMO, any excess iodine should just go out with the urine, and not cause any problems.

Just wondering.
