Any processed food I buy is zero salt, so I don't hit iodine. That means I eat lots of unsalted food since salting it with safe salt isn't always an option.

Noticed I am now super-sensitive about how salty my food is. Had to eat at Chipotle today...long story. Wow it tasted salty! Noticed salt-free chips tasted good without salt.

And I think my DH flared up but it's hard to tell since it keeps going down...so makes any bright spots look brighter.

Thank you so much for mentioning salicylate on your profile. It caught my eye, and I looked it up. I have been "allergic" to asprin since a child, and I've always been super cautious about medicine--I have bad reactions. It makes so much sense. I also have trouble with iodine/salt/DH. Thanks for this info, it helps me!

This has happened to me too! I am not as careful about iodine as I maybe should be- it's very difficult for me to avoid seafood. But I almost never add salt to anything, except when I'm making peanut butter and I rarely eat highly processed foods- organic cheeses and jams are usually the most processed I get.
And yeah, things I never thought of as salty are just repulsive now. It makes eating out even tougher! I'm kind of the same way about sugar too, though I still like a little bit. No more candy bars and such- when I want something sweet it's usually baked by me so I can control the sugar content.

I shouldn't sound so much like a complainer... I've lost weight because of my newfound tastes.
