You need to test for antibodies. Most thyroid problems are actually auto immune disorders. You really need a full thryoid panel which includes T3 and RT3 as well as antibodies to get the full picture. Visit CHRIS KRESSER's Thyroid Disorders page... (more)

I am not away of a salt like that. But I don't think salt is a good source for iodine/iodide anyway (besides, iodized salt contains iodide, not iodine). The way I see it, you basically have two options for increasing your iodine intake: Eat... (more)

Your bloodwork does reveal signs of inflammation (high CRP), which is possibly responsible for your thyroid imbalances. You didn't list free T3 but the high reverse T3 likely means your free T3 is low. Low T3 is associated with many of the... (more)

You're going by TSH which isn't that terribly accurate. Your low-normal TSH shouldn't really lead to hyper symptoms. It's more likely you'll have hypo than hyper. Actually, the sweet spot is somewhere from 0.5 to 1.75 or so. So, in your case,... (more)
