Pretzels For Those On Low Iodine
0

5 posts in this topic

My hubs & I think Glutino's pretzels are absolutely wonderful BUT there's a problem when we need to be low iodine as Glutino's uses sea salt which of course contains iodine.

We just discovered Snyder's has come out with some certified gluten-free products. I called this morning 1-800-233-7125 ext. 21410 to check & see what kind of salt is used. They said non-iodized. YAY! So both their gluten-free pretzel sticks & the mini pretzels are made with non iodized salt.

They also make gluten-free tortilla chips but the ingredients list states sea salt so beware of those if you need to be low iodine.

Hey Squirmy,

Snyder's is gluten-free & low iodine???? Amazing! I may go get some today! :)

Yum! :P Thanks for the new info...

By the way--did I read it right regarding staying on the low iodine for two weeks? :huh: Or am I making that up in my head? B) (Or "kidding myself--either way, sunglasses *on*! :D

2 weeks. However, it may take more than that.ph34r.gif My dh is terribly sensitive to iodine & since going gluten-free, I have been low iodine more than I have been on iodine. Every time I go back on iodine, I do okay for about 2 weeks or maybe a month & then I flare again. I cut the iodine & things settle down again. And when I say I go back on iodine, I mean that I have some cheese, yogurt, a bit of mayo (egg yolks), milk, a tad of ice cream & a whole egg or two per week. I do not have potato skins, seafood, anything with carageenan, coconut of any kind, spinach, lima beans, turnip greens, water chestnuts, strawberries, watermelon. cranberries or blueberries.

There are others who have had to limit the iodine as much as I have & they had to do it for 2 years or there about. There are those like Prickly pear who only had to limit it for a short time period. I hope you will be one of those.

I have had my thyroid checked & will continue to monitor it to make sure everything is hunky dorey. The others like myself have done the same.

    • Below is copied & pasted from this thread:   My celiac doctor is Dr. Syed Jafri, in Webster, TX (just south of Houston -- basically the Clear Lake City area), saved my LIFE.  I would recommend him to the whole, entire world.  I was desperately ill, and am still struggling, and he's a wonderful, sweet man who listens and is very proactive in helping you solve whatever problems you're having.  I wish all doctors were like him.  I have to fight and struggle with too many doctors to just listen to me and what I live with, day in and day out.  He's not like that.  Good luck to you.     There are recommendations on this thread too:  
    • I never worried about cross contamination because i was originally told i was just intolerant. after going gluten free i felt so much better up until this last march. dairy and fructose have been giving me problems but both lactose and fructose test came back negative.  this is what my gi doctor emailed me today 
    • Any place you know of to find more info? Seems like I am still in so much pain/bloat, I am not even sure if I would pick the right 5 foods!
    • Don't freak out worrying about other maladies yet. You would be absolutely amazed at the things that can/will resolve on the gluten free diet. Some take longer than others -- neurological seem to take the longest for most people but really, I guarantee, there will be things you had no idea or expectation of resolving will. There were tons for me and then there were things I sort of "woke up one day" & said, "hey, that's gone and that & that & that". Other, larger things had taken my attention so I hadn't paid attention to the smaller things until...... On the other hand, not everything is related to celiac but I bet you wouldn't find a handful of celiacs who didn't say something very similar to what I said above. Yes, thyroid problems are common with celiac but I'll also tell you there are/have been people on here who were hypothyroid before dx but after being gluten-free for a while they actually went back to normal thyroid numbers. My husband is one (yes, we both are celiac - it happens). He was on synthroid for 20 years or more. Guess what? He's not on it anymore. We've had his thyroid panel done several times since about a year gluten-free & he is no longer hypothyroid. 
    • Yes please, that'd be awesome Having a fun time trying to reply on my phone due to broken screen but will be back on tomorrow after results of doctor appointment to get to the bottom of why they've given me seemingly wrong advice re: next steps. Yup I'll admit to pity, anger, frustration and outright fear, been through the mill of emotions in this first week that's for sure. One thing before I go for that; back when I was self-diagnosing I wanted a full thyroid panel (T3, T4 etc.) and also ESR & CRP checks for vasculitis and similar maladies. Now it seems from my reading they can often follow celiac so my worry level of those has gone up a notch, more blood tests ahoy it seems? Main reason for worrying about those is the nearly constant tight / tender head I have at the moment. Top and sides of scalp. Could be the stress tensing the shoulders and occipital muscles at back of head but after the celiac diagnosis being missed I'm fearful of anything else being missed. Did anyone else have this tight head feeling at the start? Feels like the skin is being pulled inwards, sometimes goes down for a few minutes here and there and gets worse when sitting I think. I see the term "brain fog" a lot but luckily don't seem to have too much of that at present, this is more a physical sensation.
