allergic to iodine

Hi Lorna I'm supposedly allergic to iodine having used iodine tincture(over 10 years ago) externally on the bottom of my feet for a few days.I suffered side effects of being severely off balance, out of sorts. My family physician told me not to take iodine and I have it listed as an allergy on my medic alert disc. I planned to start taking MULTIsmart but would like to know whether the 150mcg of iodine in this product will be harmful for me.

Multismart contains potassium iodide which is different than Iodine. Potassium iodide is required for a healthy thyroid. You should not have a reaction as it is a tiny dose but I suggest you try only one capsule or a small amount of the powder before taking a full dose. I am constantly warning people about using too much topical iodine or lugols solution as they can cause thyroid issues and emotional upset.

Creating links

There are two ways of creating links:

  • The fully qualified address, like, will automatically be converted to a link.

Formatting Text

  • You can make your text italic by surrounding it with * characters, *like this.*
  • Bold formatting is produced by surrounding your text with two stars, **like so**.
  • You can even ***use both at the same time***.


  • You can make a bulleted list using stars, like this:

    * First Item
    * Second Item
    * Third Item

  • If you want a numbered list, just write it out like this:
    1. First Item
    2. Second Item
    3. Third Item


You can produce headers for your posts using the '#' symbol.
