Thyroid Bioidentical Hormones and Iodine

    I remember hearing in a video that taking bioidentical hormones for the thyroid causes a greater need for iodine, if iodine is already deficient.
    Is there any truth to this?.. I know someone who is taking the hormones, but the doctor did not mention iodine at all. Didn't even ask how much they're getting through the diet, if they used iodized salt, etc.
    Isn't this strange, since T3 and T4 are made up using iodine, shouldn't the doctor look at the patient's iodine intake as the first thing??
