When I tried it, I crashed...BIG time!

But I'm hashi's so that made sense as Mzz pointed out!

HI Lori!

Seaweed is high in iodine.
If you've got the autoimmune type of thyroid disease (TPO and TG auto-antibodies) then you've got to watch how much you take in as it tends to get these going which is not a good thing.

I take some seaweed if I'm having a lot of crucifers as crucifers interfere with iodine.
I also eat a brazil nut for the selenium it contains whenever I'm having seaweed or fish.

Sprouts makes these delicious seaweed crisps, plus I have Nori shreds, dehydrated wakame and hijiki. You would not believe how much they swell up once they are re-hydrated, pretty amazing!!! I get them at my local Asian market.

So I guess my answer is that you've got to be careful with seaweed, but that its not completely off the list of stuff to eat, no more than crucifers should be. Just be smart about it and don't overdo!

Is seaweed a good thing to take if you are hypo? Is there a specific type that is best to take (Noki? Kombu?) Does anyone know?

Hope your Tuesday is going well.

Lori

There is no such thing as failure: only early attempts at success!
