Iodine is called the metabolizer. It is one of the most vital of the biochemical elements and has one of the highest vibratory frequency rates of all the elements. It mainly affects the thyroid, which not only controls many important functions in the body, but also keeps us in a quickened state of health. Iodine restores heat, assists calcium in the repair and building of tissue in the body. Iodine is stored, in a small percentage, in muscles, most in the thyroid and the rest in the skin and bones.
The thyroid gland secretes iodine. The hormones the thyroid produces regulate and control the metabolism of the body (increases the assimilation of salts), digestion, heart rate, body temperature, nervous system, reproductive system and body weight. Iodine protects the brain by destroying harmful toxins, and helps neutralize toxins in the rest of the body. Iodine aids the assimilation of calcium and silicon. Skin problems such as dry or scaly skin are indicative of an Iodine deficiency. Regular elevated intakes of iodine occur occasionally, such reactions may manifest as skin rashes or acne. *

The chances that you have enough are slim, if you don't take any extra. Besides seewead, there's almost no iodine left in our food nowadays. It is my believe that aside from japanese or other countrys that ingest alot of seewead, everyone has a deficit. Not even salt with added iodine provides enough, if anything than it is only enough to prevent goiter.
The only real test for enough iodine i know of is to take iodine and test your urine for the amount you keep in your body and how much you peed out. That has to be over some weeks.
I haven't researched testing much because im pretty sure everyone needs to supplement iodine, except the japanese.
And since it is not very expensive, it's better to make sure you get enough.
You could ask a doctor for ways to test, or to run tests for you, but it won't be easy to find one that doesn't believe 150microgramm is way to little.
Geez my doctor was shocked when i told her, because she thought that amount would be deadly, but nope, im still alive :p.
what can happen when you have a deficit and take iodine is that you get a overreaction, like goiter, because your thyroid and maybe the rest of the body trys really hard to catch enough of it as possible.
My advise is to get the proper iodine and start slow, see how you react. If you take Lugol solution, maybe start with 1 drop, next day two, work your way up till you can tollerate 8.
