Iodine and Potassium Iodide

The hemogram is incomplete. There are other parameters other than hemobloglobin and hematocrit which could reveal if this is an iron deficiency mild anemia or not. If the rest of the hemogram was normal, then iron deficiency anemia is unlikely. Also, testing for ferritin and iron saturation could give more information about your iron deposits. Without dose, I wouldn't take iron as it could "oxidize" your body.
@Cordillera I was about to say the same thing --- the bloods you have had done are not sufficient to identify whether anemia is an issue or not. The hemoglobin marker can change for a wide variety of reasons other than iron status.

Furthermore, genuine iron-deficient anemia is not common in males unless there is an underlying root cause. Iron is one of the few nutrients which has the capacity to cause a lot of damage if supplemented in the wrong context. Please hold off on taking supplemental iron.

Hello, thank you very much for your answers. Today I went back to the endocrinologist and he agrees with you that there is no diagnosis of anemia and the results of my tests are normal.

He only indicated high doses of vitamin D. Now I don't have the exact name because I left the note at the pharmacy. It is one pill a week, for 12 weeks.

I asked him if it would be good to take iodine to improve thyroid function. But the doctor said no.

So I want to ask you again if it would be advisable to start taking lugol (2%), along with vitamin D. Or I hope to finish the treatment with vitamin D.

Another question: Is it important to take lugol with vitamin B2 and B3? I have looked in several places and they only sell B complex, with very low doses of those vitamins.

You can do a trial with lugol to see if it makes you feel better. In the beginning, there might be detox reactions. Many people shared their experience in this thread, so it will give you an idea if you go back and read the beginning of the thread.

In iherb.com, which ships worldwide, you'll find B2 and B3 at suggested doses. It's cost-effective.

Thank you very much Gaby. So I understand that lugol and vitamin D have no contraindications to be taken at the same time. Nor do they diminish or increase its effects.

I must take vitamin D once a week and I will take the lugol following the suggested protocol (salt - lugol - b2 - B3 - selenium - vitamin C - magnesium): At what time do you recommend taking vitamin D? Along with vitamin C?

First of all, I'll do the lugol test. I understand you mean the heel dosing technique (?). I prefer to ask, before making a mistake.

Thank you very much for the suggestion of the page. On Wednesday I am going to go around pharmacies again to see if I can find the B vitamins. If I can't find it, I go for the online purchase option. With customs duties and authorization procedures for medicines, it is sometimes more expensive to buy online.

Don't take lugol & vitamin C simultaneoursly, they interacts & "cancels" each other. You can do the test with a glass of water, put one drop of lugol in it, then add some vitamin C, see the result. It's a safe chemical reaction in a glass of water, and a waste of money in your stomach :)
I usually take all my vitamin supplements with my breakfast, and my mineral supplements with my lunch.

Hello @Tomek, I was referring to following the protocol proposed by Gabi. So my question is when do I take vitamin D:

I had an unfortunate mishap recently while doing some yoga in my room and I got two scratches on my back. I promptly used some plasters medicated with Lugol's iodine and used another set of plasters after the first ones started to get old. Unfortunately the wounds were getting worse and they'd actually gotten bigger after removing the last set of plasters as the absorbent pad did not fully cover the wound area, and the adhesive had torn off quite a bit of the covering skin. So in the quest to "do it myself" I got a set of large dressings and proceeded to medicate them with iodine, before applying them on the wound (with a lot of difficulty as the wounds were on my back). The iodine really stung, but I thought it would be temporary and it would be alright. It wasn't the case and I found out today at a clinic that the wound is now infected. They applied a dressing and provided me some antibiotics (Zinnat) for the infection. I'm to go there again tomorrow for another dressing. My father had mentioned that Lugol's is not suitable for wounds and Povidone Iodine (trademark Betadine) is what is normally used, which I knew about as well, but I had thought that Lugol's was also okay to use. I may have just used too much of it due to the large bandage and very absorbent pad. In any case, I'm being more careful about the wounds from now on and also monitoring the amount of pressure being applied on them when seated.

As far as I know the only thing you have to take at least 2 hours (better more) away from iodine is Vit.C.
Usually I take the Vit.D together with lugol's and the companions. Did our doctor remind you that it's better to take Vit. D combined with Vit.K2?


My father had mentioned that Lugol's is not suitable for wounds and Povidone Iodine (trademark Betadine) is what is normally used, which I knew about as well, but I had thought that Lugol's was also okay to use.
I used lugol's on smaller wounds without problem except that it 'bites' for about 2 min. And when I use lugol's I never use a band aid but just let it dry. It might have been the band aid and the pulling off that caused the infection, I suppose. For bigger wounds I take povidone.

Hopefully not too personal but I would like to share something that must be caused by iodine since I made no other changes:

Today I had an appointment with my gynecologist whom I see for 25 years.
It was just a usual screening and a medical ultrasound of cervix and uterus was made.
He looked a bit puzzled, then said,"If I wouldn't know it's you I'd say this is the uterus and cervix of a 35 years old. What have you done?" (I'm in menopause.)
He then compared it with the picture from last year. Even I could see a difference. He was almost cute in his excitement.
Only a gynecologist might guess the age of a woman by looking at her cervix and uterus. :lol:
I told him about iodine and he asked for some links for information.
I thought I share this here as it speaks for the benefits of iodine for the female organs.

In my experiance, Logol is not the best solution for wounds but it does the job very good. Me and my family use it for wounds of every size and had zero bad results. We used it on my 3 years old son when he got his finger, under fingernail, infected (he even had elevated body temperature). We rubbed a lot of Logols on and around the wound, on wrists and heels. Doctor gave us an antibiotic (which we kept just in case) and an antibiotic cream (which we used). Fingernail fell off naturally and the wound healed up nicely. As I can tell, you can only make a mistake of using a too small dose.
