I've been on the iodine free diet for 3 weeks now and I'm starting to lose my mind. Not because of the food exactly, but because I did the diet to the best of my ability and I failed my first blood test...the results showing that I'm not even 1/2 way to being iodine free.
I think I figured out what I did wrong...I recently had moles removed because they looked suspicious, and I was putting antibiotic cream on the wounds. I stopped using the cream about a week ago, and re-test in 2 days and hope it's enough.
I need to start my treatment immediately, as I'm moving as soon as it's over and I can't afford to keep paying my medical bills and my rent.
Does anyone have any advice on how I can speed up getting the iodine out of my body?
If I fail again, is there any medicine they can give me that flushes out iodine?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated. I would be devastated if treatment got postponed again.
