I am drawing my experience, I take 240mgs daily, this summer has been dreadful, I always loved hot weather, the hotter the better, but since taking iodine, it alone seems to have raised my body temp, two degree's. So I am under the impression if anything Iodine
will increase body temp, ie hands. This summer has been a hot one, but with iodine, I was most miserable, but I maintained, now for winter, which I never liked, perhaps it will be more accommodating w/ iodine.
FWIW Department, I play golf three times a week with 2 drug salesman, part of their job as I understand it, is to start rumors, be they good rumors or bad rumors, they are often very respected in an MD Office, as the dock normally believes everything they say, he depends heavily on his drug rep.
So I can easily imagine a drug salesman mentioning to a nurse, hey that Iodine
will harm your thyroid. Thats where they get started. A nurse must be careful as to what she passes along to her friends because of patient confidentiality, but she sure as heck can relay what a drug rep says, get the picture.
Three false stories I have been told by my dock, one is that if I took HGH, it would cause my cancer to grow, just the opposite, it boosted the heck out of my immune system.
Secondly I am borderline diabetic, so my dock tells me, no you cannot take insulin or your body will stop producing it, I have taken injectable insulin for ten years, no bother with my body stopping production I pop 2 iu after each meal, 3 if a big meal w/ lots of carbs.
David if you take testosterone, your body will stop producing it, yes it will, but after a month, it comes back on line full force.
My point, even though a dock tells you an urban legend it does not make it true. end of story, Our bodies have evolved a million years learning how to avoid our stupid mistakes, it will take good care of itself. david lubbock tx.
