My daughter in law must eat as little iodine as possible for two weeks, after which she will have radioactive iodine treatments to destroy the residue of her thyroid after successful thyroid cancer surgery. We have the information from the dietitian about what is allowed and not allowed, but I have my doubts about some of the recommended items because they are prepared foods that list salt as an ingredient (e.g., Sabra Hummus). I am emailing the companies that produce the prepared foods to get more information, but I wonder whether any of you have experience with this regimen and might have some useful suggestions. I plan to cook her a lot of dinners and freeze them myself, but I would appreciate any useful hints.
I am planning on cooking from scratch, but there are some ingredients that just won't work even for that. Who knew that egg yolks were high in iodiine?
I had already seen the Thyca site. I think there is a bit too much pop culture bullshit and this is an issue where I hope for rigorous scientific truth.
