For want of iodine there are lot of trouble in our body due to disturbance in thyroid gland. How you fulfill the shortage of Iodine in food and body to avoid goiter and other disease may attack for shortage of Iodine ?? In our country we take salt which claim have iodine but I guess in this salt a little iodine can be found which is not enough for body. Except where I can find IODINE I cannot say so any advise or information ??

When I started having problems with my thyroid they told me it was due to my blood sugar, and that I also could eat more shrimp, and that would help, so I started in eating shrimp about once a week, as well as making sure that I did put salt on my food, I normally don't use salt. But on top of all of that I started eating strawberries for a snack, and it has brought my levels up.

Besides from salt, sea foods are good source of Iodine. Others recommend yogurt , whole boiled egg, cow's milk, strawberries and mozzarella cheese. It is now recommended that salt contains iodine. Breads are even processed to have iodine content so that conditions of the thyroid gland are decreased.
