selenium, iodine, hashimoto

Not what I usually advocate (tests,doctors, low dose iodne supplementation) -but an alternative for those struggling with it.
Most interesting is the map of selenium coverage in the US, it may show why some of those at the forum never needed that much selenium.

"We also routinely test all patients for Iodine levels and give supplements in patients found to be low. Iodine supplementation in Hashimotos patients is controversial and many patients read on the internet that Iodine should never be given to a Hashimotos patient.

This is incorrect, as iodine is an essential mineral and iodine deficiency is associated with many adverse health consequences for the patient.

Starting Selenium First !

The important key here is to start selenium first to protect the thyroid cells from oxidative damage from hydrogen peroxide used to incorporate Iodine into thyroid hormone. After two weeks, it is safe to start the iodine supplementation."
