Trapper, my 78yr old mother just found out she is diabetic. Unfortunitily she will start taking a prescriiption medication for that. :( Also, She just started taking Armour thyroid and I wanted to know if she can take the Iodine for the diabetes on top of taking Armour? My goal is to eventually get her off of the bad meds. She needs the diabete meds now because she broke her ankle and had surgery on it a few days ago. THats when they found out she was diabetic. So is Iodine ok to take along with Armour?
