Thyroid

Body temperature varies as the day goes on. It is at the low point around 4:00 am, and the expected temperature at that time is around 97.6 F. Temperature increases from that point, reaching the low 98's by 9:00 am, and should reach 99.6 F by 4:00 pm. Appropriate temperature is only 'appropriate' relative to the time of day in which it is taken.

Further, there is no such thing as a 'normally' low temperature. If a person has observed that their temperature is 'always low,' or that it takes a massive infection before they run a fever, the likelihood of hypothyroidism being present increases substantially.

Iodine is one of the most important minerals required by the body for healthy cellular and complete metabolic function. Breast tissue, the uterus, the ovaries, the thyroid, the brain and the prostate depend on iodine. But typical intake levels for most people are not optimal. Your thyroid tissue absorbs iodine best as potassium iodide, while breast tissue takes up iodine in the form of molecular iodine. Additionally, there is evidence that using sodium iodide enhances absorption of the other forms.

 

Are You Short On This Important Co-factor

 

IODINE DEFICIENCY

SYMPTOM

 

 Face is puffy in the morning and eyelids are swollen

Lips swollen and protruding, particularly the lower lip

 Dry skin

 Ringing in the ears or impaired hearing

 Feel more tired at rest than when active

 Frequent urination

Stiff joints in the morning and/or  legs and ankles swollen in the morning

Big calves and/or sagging stomach pushed forward by curvature of spine

TOTAL BOXES CHECKED
If you have checked 4 or more boxes in this group you would almost certainly benefit from iodine supplementation. If you checked 3 you may want to consider testing and would likely benefit from iodine supplementation. If you checked 2, although you have fewer symptoms you may want to consider taking iodine at a lower dosage for ongoing good health, disease prevention, and detoxification.

 

This is not a diagnostic test. It is meant as a nutritional guide to raise awareness of suboptimal iodine levels. It may also help you determine whether you should have further discussions with your healthcare practitioner.
