HOW TO PERFORM AN IODINE SKIN PATCH TEST
If you are curious or are experiencing symptoms commonly associated with low thyroid, you may have an iodine deficiency that is affecting your body's metabolism. Your doctor can check on the symptoms of hypothyroid function or even order an iodine deficiency test. They may even recommend the skin patch test. The test is economical and can be a useful measurement of how fast iodine is absorbing in your body.
PT Skin IOSOL is used often for this protocol. External use only.
How to use:
1. Apply the PT Skin IOSOL (2-3) drops as a three inch square patch on either in the inside of your forearm, the inside of a thigh or abdomen. Some monitor the patch on the top web of hand between your thumb and index finger.
2. Take note of the time. If the "brown" stain fades completely in six hours or less, it is one indicator that the iodine is not sufficient to normalize thyroid secretion to the cells. Iosol for internal use is often recommended as internal supplementation to restore the balance.
3. If the "brown" stain is still apparent after six hours, then this is just one indicator of sufficient iodine levels.
