I was diagnosed by my irodologist with low thyroid and was told to take iodine. I have been taking Lugol's
for the past year and a half orally but can't seem to see any improvement. I take 2 or 3 droppers full per day. My temp is always around 96 to 97 and I can not lose weight despite exercising an hour a day and restricting my calories.
I really want to lose weight and was hoping the Iodine
would help my slow thyroid which I feel is preventing my weight loss. Is painting the Iodine
on myself more effective than taking it orally? I painted it on my belly last night and it disappeared within a couple hours and I painted it on my neck and throat this morning and it disappeared again within a few hours.
I read when painting it on you are considered iodine deficient if it disappears that fast and I am wondering how I can be when I have been taking it orally for a year and a half. I could use some advice on how to get the best results from iodine.
