I'm not pregnant yet, but I'm trying to figure out how much iodine I should take when I do get pregnant. Right now I'm taking 12.5 mgs of Lugol's solution a day, and I think I was deficient because I stopped losing so much hair, and I stopped having to wake up to go to the bathroom so much at night. I've stopped supplemental iodine in the past and had my hair start falling out again pretty quickly, so I want to continue taking some during pregnancy (probably more than I would get from just kelp unless I eat a ton of it), but don't want to take too much as I"m still a little leery of possible iodine toxicity. I was thinking I might try around 3 mgs/day. Thoughts on this? Anyone BTDT?
