I'm a new comer here and new to Iodine
supplementation. I am around 50 years old male.
I suffer from a long term law hemoglobin level (last read 10.6 g/dl) and RBC level, (which is slightly and slowly ameliorated when taking iron, but drops fast down if I stop taking it) with no known bleeding problem (occult blood stool are negative). In the last year I also had strange thyroid tests, reading very low TSH (0.1 ulU/ml), normal T3 total (2.17 nmol/L) and high free T4 (29.43 pmol/L). T4 and T3 used to be higher but dropd in the last blood works I took.
As said, I recently read about Iodine
I thought it can do good in my situation. I took the Iodine
loading test and it came back with 49 mg iodine excreted!! does it make sense?
Anyway, I need help here to understand both tests results (Thyroid and Iodine), I'd thank for any idea regarding what it means and how to proceed...
