Caution with Potassium Iodide

Updated: Mar 4, 2022



People aged 18 to 40 can purchase potassium iodide tablets at a low price in pharmacies.

People older than 40 should no longer take potassium iodide tablets, as their risk of developing radiation-related thyroid cancer is very low, but the risk of serious side-effects from iodine intake is high.


Children younger than 18 get them for free.


Potassium iodide tablets may only be taken at the explicit request of health authorities.

The high-dose tablets can otherwise lead to ios-based hyperthyroidism.


Taken in time, iodine tablets prevent the storage of radioactive iodine in the thyroid gland. (The thyroid gland is saturated with non-radioactive iodine instead!)

This is called an iodine blockade.


Tablets for people older than 18 are currently unavailable. They should be back in stock by Mar. 4th 2022!

UPDATE: UNFORTUNATELY, IODIDE TABLETS FOR PEOPLE OLDER THAN 18 WILL NOT BE AVAILABLE FOR ANOTHER THREE WEEKS! (Mar. 3rd, 2022)

---


Those for children are in stock!
