Iodine vs Iodide- what's the difference
I am undergoing LID for RAI treatment. I am confused with the salt issue. Is a salt that says " This salt does not provide IODIDE a necessary nutrient" a IODINE free salt or Iodine and Iodide are two different things? Should I consumed the one that says the statement I posted before?

Thanks for you help

I found this on the net

It would seem it is best to avoid both iodine and iodide at the moment.

Iodine is the KI and the iodide is the component to produce KI - Both apply to be avoided when doing the LID
