If you are interested in supplementing with Iodine, but want some medical guidance or want to know first if you are definitely deficient (it is estimated > 90% of Americans are deficient), you have some options.
There is one Iodine Literate Practitioner in our state (see http://www.breastcancerchoices.org/ipractitioners.html):
Peter C. Kassner, NMD
1514 Skyland Blvd E #173
Tuscaloosa, Alabama 35405
As an alternative to using a "local" practitioner, the website, Nutrition with Judy, has a page for ordering a DIY Iodine 24-hour loading test. The test determines if you are iodine deficient (technically, it shows how much your body absorbs) and also, optionally, how much fluoride, chloride and/or bromide you are excreting in your urine. A note on the test page indicates that test results are evaluated by Nutrition with Judy and a custom email will be sent including diet and supplement recommendations and "next steps".
