It wouldn't be a bad idea, particularly if you may be subject to thyroid problems.

Wouldn't you get enough iodine from salt in prepared foods? A simple blood test from the doctor would be the best way to know for sure.

salt at diners and fast food places etc (movie popcorn) is iodized so any time you eat at such places you are getting your fix. Also, your vitamins may have a dose in them.

Kelp has iodine in it in case you eat anything with it. I actually use a Salt Substitute that uses Kelp Powder as one of the ingredients. It was a side benefit I had not expected.

No fast food either, not ever. No movie popcorn either.
Not sure what Kelp is, so for sure not getting any iodine there.
I guess doctor it is. Have to go anyway, better check. I actually e-mailed Morton, that is the salt I use most, they have not replied yet.

Kelp is seaweed!

Taking a multi-vitamin will often fulfill your iodine needs. Pick one with Iodine 150 mcg (micrograms) for 100% of your daily needs.
