Pretzels For Those On Low Iodine

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

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.

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.

    • From the Chicago Celiac Disease Center which is one of the premier celiac disease research & treatment centers in the world: Are you scheduled for a biopsy? Are you eating gluten? Any changes in your diet can affect the accuracy of your biopsy results. It is necessary for you to be eating gluten every day for at least 4-8 weeks before the procedure. If you are scheduled for a biopsy and are not eating gluten, talk to your doctor about what is necessary to obtain accurate results. If you have
      a biopsy and have eaten gluten only a short time before the test, you and your physician will not know if a negative test result is accurate or due to your diet. Here's a link: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/wp-content/uploads/341_CDCFactSheets5_Diagnosis.pdf Also, you might want to read this: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/can-an-allergist-help-with-celiac-disease-or-does-a-better-specialist-exist/  
    • My panel was the same as yours........all tests positive by large numbers so you can consider yourself a Celiac.  Are you very symptomatic? I will add that I did not eat Whole Foods exclusively when healing.  I needed to gain weight badly so ate gluten-free bread and a few other things that seemed to agree with me.  Never had a problem once I went gluten free, except to discover that I had a problem with dairy also. But I healed well and all is good.  You'll be fine now that you know what the problem is.  Good luck!  
    • My allergist did suggest I cut out gluten right away, but I’ll call the GI tomorrow and discuss that. Thank you!
    • He only did 2 of the full panel & you are positive on one of them, the DGP IgG. It only takes one positive to move on to an endoscopy.  Here's the full celiac serum panel: Anti-Gliadin (AGA) IgA
      Anti-Gliadin (AGA) IgG
      Anti-Endomysial (EMA) IgA
      Anti-Tissue Transglutaminase (tTG) IgA
      Deamidated Gliadin Peptide (DGP) IgA and IgG
      Total Serum IgA 
      Also can be termed this way: Endomysial Antibody IgA
      Tissue Transglutaminase IgA 
      GLIADIN IgG
      GLIADIN IgA
      Total Serum IgA 
      Deamidated Gliadin Peptide (DGP) IgA and IgG You should get the rest of the panel done OR be referred to a GI for an endoscopy. DO NOT STOP EATING GLUTEN UNTIL THE ENDOSCOPY HAS BEEN COMPLETED. Eat gluten every day. EVERY DAY.
    • That's about the most definitive positive across the board that I've ever seen. You're way positive on every one. Keep eating gluten every single day until the endoscopy! You don't have to eat a ton, 1 or 2 slices of gluten bread per day will do it. Orrrrrrrrrrr you could take this time to pig out on all of your favorite gluten foods to say goodbye to them.  Ultimately, those foods will become a distant memory. There are gluten free replacements for literally everything but for 6 months to a year, you will need to eat whole foods & none of the processed stuff so you can heal.
