My new dr thinks I may have PCOS based on numerous symptoms. He has recommended that I try Iodoral (12.5 mg of iodine supplement) for 3 months to address my symptoms. Has anyone heard of this treatment?
Apparently, iodine has been effective in treating the tenderness that comes from fibrocystic breast disease and it is also used to treat thyroid conditions. I've always had tender breasts around my period and I do have thyroid nodules, but I've never been diagnosed with cysts on my ovaries or in my breasts. I agreed to try the Iodoral at the time because the alternative was Metformin and Aldactone and that sounded too serious!
Now that I have had time to research PCOS and treatment options, I am wondering if I should waste 3 months on an unkonwn treatment?!
