Our expert says:
I am sorry to hear about this problem. Iodine is a so-called trace element which cannot be replaced by any other nutrient. I would, however, recommend that you have your thyroid hormone levels checked because you may have an underactive thyroid due to lack of iodine in the diet. The dr will be able to prescribe thyroid hormone to improve this situation and your symptoms.
