From The Thyroid Hormone Breakthrough by Mary J. Shomon:

"A 1997 study suggested that high intake of iodine when selenium is de?cient may cause thyroid damage. Selenium supplementation has also been shown to reduce in?ammation and antibody levels in patients with autoimmune thyroiditis. Too much selenium can be dangerous, so multivitamin and additional supplementation should not exceed 400 mcg per day."

I guess it all depends on what is considered a "high intake of iodine."

*  Exactly how is selenium deficiency detected?

*  Since iodine and selenium seem to be "dancing partners" is there a ratio of iodine-to-selinium supplementation? a recommended minimum/optimum amount?

*  I have seen 100-200 micrograms of selenium daily but not sure if that is optimum, say if one is supplementing 400-500 micrograms of iodine daily?

In any case, I think the intake of under 1000 mcg of Iodine most take here is perfectly safe. I take 550 mcg.

I will take the ideal dose of selenium - 200 mcg/day.
