Yup I have heard the stories about it over and over on the forum. I didn’t really have any symptoms of it until this winter hit and I have had trouble dealing with the cold.
There’s a simple home iodine test you can do on yourself. It involves rubbing iodine on your arm and seeing how long it takes to absorb. For a healthy person, it should last 24 hours.
After day 1 of iodine and thyroid supplements, I feel a ton better. I even had night sweats last night which is very strange considering how I have felt really cold at night here (I have oil heat so don’t crank it up).
Yesterday I had more energy than normal as well.
