5 Point Comments - It Helped Me a Lot

Mon, 22 Jul 2019 18:46:28
I seem to have a unique response to T2 (3-5 diiodothyronine). A single dose (100 mcg) keeps my ME symptoms at a lesser baseline for 21 days. A bit of supplemental iodine has exactly the same effect, so I assume that it boosts internal T2 production. T2/iodine is one of only two supplements that continue to work reliably for me.

I experimented with higher doses, which didn't provide more benefit. Daily doses stopped working, and produced a negative rebound effect.

I use Iodoral 50 mg - High Potency Iodine/Potassium Iodide Supplement, in conjunction with iodine protocol. This was done after doing an iodine load test for iodine deficiency (after being DX'd for hypothyroidism and being on Synthroid for a while). I had noticed a perk of energy from doing the test, which did show iodine deficiency and have used it since. The perk has become consistent. I believe it also has good detox results. I have occasionally used the sea-salt to help this along. I was told that it may take three months to re-establish iodine levels.

Tri-Iodine 6.25 mg/ daily. Contained 2.935 mg KI, 2.935 mg NaI, 380 mcg kelp iodine. No effect on energy levels. Increased hand trembling and overall shaky feeling.

The next day after taking 1/4 pill (12.5 mg) I felt so awful I thought I might need to go to the doctor. I have Hashimoto's so it probably provoked a higher autoimmune attack?
