Are you doing this for RAI?  If so post under thyroid cancer, or look in all the past posts.  We have discussed the LID many many times.  Or you can check the Thyca cookbood.  Just google Thyca and you will find it.  Good Luck, it is a pretty tough diet, but doable.

I am a thyroid cancer patient and I just had radioactive iodine (RAI) treatment a few weeks ago. I was on a low iodine diet for two weeks prior to the treatment. The thyroid cancer survivor's website "thyca.org" has a good Low Iodine Cookbook which contains a list of foods that are low on iodine. Hope this helps you.

When my wife was "dosed" with the I-131 we were told to sleep in separate rooms for at least 7 days.  As the scan was clear and the I-131 passed quickly I believe that the 7 days was more precautionary than necessary.

However, if any residual I-131 had been detected it would've required a longer time to dissapate.
