I want to try taking iodine as I suspect my low carbing is affecting my thyroid (to be honest, I think I've had a less than optimal thyroid function for a really long time).
However, I get a recurring rash on my lower leg that I have long suspected is DH (linked with celiacs). I haven't had this confirmed (I plan on getting a referral and talking to a dermatologist about it as my regular doctor is stumped by the rash), but if it is that, then apparently Iodine can actually worsen the rash. See The Gluten Intolerance Group of North America on Iodine and Dermatitis Herpetiformis - Celiac.com
Does anyone know about this? If so, how long do I need to be gluten free, and rash free, before it could be safe to take iodine? I am rash free right now and have been for about a month I believe.
