    Hello – Just a quick note that not all docs require a Low Iodine Diet (LID) prior to RAI. Those who do believe that depriving the thyroid gland of iodine for a period prior to treatment will cause the thyroid gland to take up more of the radioactive iodine.

    The LID is commonly recommended for patients who are receiving higher doses of RAI for thyroid cancer.
