The Low Iodine Cookbook is the ultimate cookbook for thyroid cancer patients who need to be on the low iodine diet (LID) for radioactive iodine treatment or scans. Written by a renowned cookbook author who is experienced with the issues involved with special diets and substitutions--particularly diets that don't allow dairy, or store-bought breads, the unique cookbook contains more than 250 kitchen-tested recipes and over 20 milk substitutes and variations, and an exhaustive nutritional analysis chart.

At last, LID recipes are easy and delicious--by the woman critics hail as the "Julia Child" of specialty diet cooking. Always keeping her motto that "food that is good for you should taste good!" in mind, Norene's take on the LID is no exception. This book will change the lives of thyroid cancer patients.

This is my second round of radioactive iodine therapy for cancer, and this book has really made the diet prior a lot more bearable. My first time, of going on the diet, I just used a recipe book I downloaded from the web, but my doctor recommended this one and it had much more variety and not nearly as restrictive as the previous recipes I used last time.

Don't get me wrong the diet still gets old after awhile, but this makes it a lot easier to deal with, with more choices. If you're having to do the low iodine diet thing, this is the book to get.

This book was a great help for anyone who has to be on a low iodine diet. The recipes were easy basic ones. Especially helpful was the bread and cookie recipes. Will make more of the recipes now even though I'm not on the diet at this time.
I bought this for a family member who is undergoing her second low-iodine diet protocol. The hospital provided links to online recipe resources for the first protocol, which were very limited and left this family member weak, feeling calorically and nutritionally depleted, and very discouraged. I think the diet was worse than the radiation side-effects and isolation. This cookbook, although not perfect, provides many more options and creative ideas for creating meals beyond the typical plain foods addressed by online resources. There are some recipes that are not low-iodine approved, so beware, i.e. turkey, rhubarb, chicken livers, etc. The biggest plus of this book is recipes for baked goods - muffins, breads, etc. Best money I've spent helping this family member through thyroid radiation treatment. It is a must buy!!
Anyone purchasing this book probably has the dreaded feeling of having to go on this diet. Well, this book makes it a little easier, however, I have thyroid cancer and has a free cookbook with some conflicting information when comparing the two. I decided to purchase it anyway to offer a little variety and stayed away from ingredients where they didn't agree.
Thank you, Ms. Gilletz for the book. I found most of the info and recipes out on the web, so I ended up not using the book for my time on LID....I was hoping there would be info on products that would be appropriate for LID, but there wasn't much of that.
The Low Iodine Diet Cookbook

Noren Gilletz offers a wide variety of healthy, delicious recipe options in her book, The Low Iodine Cookbook. This is a user-friendly cookbook for everyone. However, it is especially helpful for people that have to be on a low iodine diet (LID) for health reasons such as thyroid cancer (thyca). There is also an informative Introduction, written by Kenneth Ain, M.D., in the book that will benefit thyca readers/users and their families. Norene's recipes are easy to re-create in the kitchen utilizing "pantry/on-hand items". She provides options for breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks.
I'm pretty sure I would not have survived the LID if I did not have this book. And some of the recipes I still use!
This book was ordered as a gift for a person getting ready for an RAI treatment. She is very happy with the book and intends to keep it after her treatment.
