My sister has been taking iodine and vitamin C and has lost weight. She told me I should take the iodine and vitamin C also to help me lose weight (I was 144lbs), she is now down about 29 pounds at about 142lbs.
I have found since I started taking the 2 drops daily about 2 weeks now that I have gained almost 9 pounds and am now about 152lbs. I have had a right sided throidectomy about 7 or so years ago due to a goiter and atypical bx's. I am not on any meds for thyroid and all my tests show that it is WNL. I am wondering if the iodine is too much for me with half a thyroid and that is why I am suddenly gaining weight. I am very upset with the weight gain.
I look forward to hearing if that is my problem.
