I have been on Undoctored for over six months. However I elected to refrain from iodine supplementation because I was unsure whether this was necessary in my case.

I may have some minor symptoms of hypothyroidism, including a tendency to feel cold, dry skin, and thinning hair. But hey, I’m nearly 63! 

More significantly, I have a high CAC score (1,298), which may indicate possible chronic hypothyroidism.

I am not on any medications and overall feel healthy. I am under the care of a cardiologist and we are trying various tweaks to my diet to work on my high LDL-P, but I’m not on a statin, at least not yet. I realize, after re-reading the section in Undoctored about thyroid that chronic hypothyroidism can contribute to CVD, so my thyroid status and possible need for intervention is a serious question.

Here are recent thyroid test results, with reference ranges on the right side of the table

Free T3 Available T3 2.6 pg/mL 2.3-4.2
Free T4 Available T4 1.4 ng/dL 0.8-1.8
Free Thyroxine Index A Thyroxine Index 1.7 1.4-3.8
Reverse T3 Reverse T3, Serum 13 ng/dL 8-25
T-Uptake Thyroxine Binding Sites 41 % 22-35
TSH Thyroid-Stimulating Hormone 2.39 mIU/L 0.40-4.50
Thyroxine (T4, total) Total thyroxine (T4) level 4.1 ?g/dL 4.9-10.5
Triiodothyronine (T3, total) Total triiodothyronine (T3) 59 ng/dL 76-181

If anyone can tell me whether these look fine relative to the program or if I should take some action (such as taking iodine) I’d appreciate feedback.

"All moderns need to presume iodine deficiency"

What about if you’re eating occasional seafood, eating yogurt, using iodized salt and eating eggs all with iodine in them?

Just curious what your test meal contains so that it contains six kinds of prebiotic fiber. Sounds like you might have a good way to make daily consumption convenient?
