I wish I was on maintenance. Even though I've been taking iodine for a couple of years, I'm not sure I was absorbing it very well for quite a while. Apparently I'm one of the ones that really needed salt for the sodium-iodide symporters, plus ATP cofactors for organification. I already had the vitamin C covered. Once those got on target, it felt as though more of the iodine was being used. Whenever I do a trial reduction, my body complains. So, at least for a while longer, I'll be on at least a couple hundred milligrams.
