    Default Iodine Deficiency?

    I don't have a confirmed deficiency but I do know that we live in an Iodine deficient world at the moment. I know Blackmores have iodine in their preg and BF tablets, but I have just started a new box of Elevit and I'm not about to waste them and get the others. I know there is also Iodised salt to add to your food. I bought some of this stuff early in pregnancy but I just don't add salt to my food or cooking, if I do I find it too salty.



    Does anyone have any other ideas of how to get iodine in to my diet?

    I believe seafood and kelp have the highest concentrations of iodine in them so if you eat these regularly you are very unlikely to have a deficiency.

    Eggs, meat and dairy products contain iodine so if you are including plenty of these in your diet you should be fine, particularly if you are using iodised salt.

    you only need a very small amount of iodine - even if you use iodised salt in your cooking thsi shoudl be sufficient.
