Enlarged Thyroid

Greetings, I'm interested in taking an iodine supplement with 225 Mgc. Is this safe to take?
Thank you,
Mary-Jo

Iodine supplementation is usually given to the people who live in iodine deficient regions; the dose I believe is no more then 150 mcg; in other cases it can be risky without consulting the doctor (may trigger hyperthyroidsm, especially at such high dose and if hot nodules are present)

Before you take anything, make sure you know the side effects and what could possibly happen if you take too much.
Research into it more.
Personally I wouldnt touch it.

Gee MJ - This is a hard thing to know for sure. I have been doing some reading on this treatment and still feel unsure exactly - I know the conversation came up over on the Complementary Medicine Forum here at MedHelp.

You can definately look over that information and ask away anything like that there too!
