I have Hashimoto's and am not having throat swelling now at 50 mg. However, when I first started, I was taking Iosol about 1,800 mcg a day and I did have irritation and swelling in my throat. There are two things I have heard as explanations by others that may have caused this. One is initially when taking iodine, the thyroid swells in an attempt to capture more Iodine and two low doses cause more oxidative stress and can inflame an autoimmune situation. It seems that for most people who I have read had swelling to begin with that eventually after awhile of supplementation it has resolved itself. Diane
