For the second time this year I developed hyperthyroid symptoms while on a "safe" dose (650mcg) of iodine in the form of kelp tablets. Symptoms included; excessive sweating and frequent hot flashing, intolerance to heat, frequent waking throughout the night and inability to go back to sleep, excessive urination and a heavy fatigue-feeling in my chest.

Within 24 hours of ceasing all iodine supplements ALL the symptoms, thankfully, went away! I’m assuming this means 650mcg is a toxic dose for me and I need to reduce it. Right now I’m not taking any. What would be a better approach to the iodine?

I’m not sure what part this plays into the picture but last month I started Armour Thyroid for hypothyroid symptoms. (Basal temp. 96.4 and indicated by numbers on blood spot test; TSH 2.5, low half range fT3 and fT4) It’s 4 weeks into the AT and my basal temp is starting to climb to 97.1 and my energy is noticeably better.

Also, should you decide to test serum copper, you might consider testing serum zinc at the same time. If you decide to supplement copper, it’s important that they stay in balance.

Thank you for informing me about the side effects of going too low on TSH. Would adding T3 (to a reduced dose of Armour) be the next reasonable step to address the hypo symptoms?

Stop the Thyroid Madness says it’s typical for people to start thyroid medicine, feel great, and need their dose bumped up.

Heidi, I have some bottles of Thyrogold I don’t need anymore. They’re unopened they’ve been sitting in my freezer for a few months. Send me a PM if you’re interested in buying them.

Heidi, your FT3 2.9 and RT3 14.8 give a FT3/RT3 ratio of 20, where optimal is >= 20. Also, your temps says you’re doing well. You’re hanging in there, so I’d hold the course you’ve set. Also, pat yourself on the back :-)
