I had Grave's Disease for a few years. My endocrinologist wanted me to try a low iodine diet for 2 months to see if the Grave's would go into remission. Without the LID Community, my options would have been severely limited. I was given a one page list of what I could not eat. I am still in remission.
I am so glad I found this website! I bought all my groceries for my LID based on the pictures of "safe" foods from Kroger and Trader Joe's. I even ate dark chocolate every single day on my LID. When I got my scans back, I said "I hope my iodine levels are low enough..," being a little nervous with all the indulgences I had. The nurse said "Oh they definitely are!!" So grateful for this website and all of the hard work you all put into it. Thank you again. ❤️
Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!! You really make LID bearable! I am constantly checking the lists, whether at the grocery store, at home packing my lunch for work, or looking for a convenience store snack. Because of this site I have been able to go to restaurants with friends, be encouraged by others who share this journey, and experience a new normal. I just can’t thank you enough for what you do!
Thanks so much
💚LID LIFE COMMUNITY💙
because of you LID is so much easer to accomplish!
I wanted to thank this group again now that I'm officially glowing....when I received the initial paperwork from the drs office I was a completely overwhelmed by the the limited choices they suggested for the LID diet...the website has been a God send! Plus your help the first couple of days was awesome during the learning process!
I am a nurse Coordinator for the Endocrine clinic,and work with people who have Thyroid Cancer.It can be very difficult and sometimes intimidating for patients who have to start the low iodine diet,especially in the rural areas where a variety of foods are not available to them.This group has been an absolute godsend to the patients!I constantly get feedback from patients on what a wonderful and informative site this is,and if it wasnt for the wonderful people in it,they would not have survived the diet!.Keep up the great work,and I know you people put ALOT of hard work into it 🙂
Before finding this group, I felt so alone in all of this! I felt frightened and also burdened by LID. This group made it so much easier. Finding safe products was great, but findng community was better. I haven't felt alone since finding this community, not even now while im in isolation for RAI.
I can't express my gratitude at finding this site. As if having cancer isn't bad enough you are then handed a piece of paper and told follow this diet. One look and you see you will be eating veggies and unsalted nuts. It is demoralizing and stressful. This site removed that added stress and my rai was 2 days ago. My doc said my levels looked good and i was ok for treatment. Thank you! thank you! thank you!
My husband was diagnosed with stage 4 papillary cancer with metastasis in his lungs last year. Needless to say, I was overwhelmed and extremely scared. I asked questions with his endocrinologist and googled everything I could learn about this cancer. Reading the wealth of information and trying to understand it was overwhelming and confusing. I don't remember how I found the LID Community but I was fortunate and extremely happy.
Through this community, I learned the similarities my husband is going through and will go through by sharing their experiences, challenges and victories. The LID diet was very informative and a life saver which enables me to make nutrious and tasty meals.
Most of all, the members all support each other through their ups and downs. The administrations the best, knowleagble and most caring people.
Everyone who has thyroid cancer or knows someone with thyroid cancer need to know about this awesome community.
With a much heartfelt gratitude, thank you to each and everyone of you!
This organization is amazing. The information is invaluable, & the support from the members is so comforting. My food choices were greatly increased due to the research done by the administrators. Of course, I followed my endocrinologist's instructions, but this group helped me learn to live better with my thyroid cancer diagnosis & the LID diet.
