This blog chronicles the cooking adventures of preparing and eating a low iodine diet in preparation for radioactive iodine (RAI) therapy for treatment of follicular variant papillary thyroid cancer.
Use the Tabs below to see our daily LID menu by meal. When possible, I have added photos of our meals, pictures of food ingredients and links to recipes. My husband's RAI was 9/21/12 and his LID ended 48 hours later. I hope you will find some of the meal ideas on this blog helpful.
