I had probably asked a dozen MDs what caused the little red dots on my trunk area(chest-back) and they all replied it was just a sign of aging. I believe the phrase "I don't know" isn't part of the curriculum at med school--anyway after a bunch of research it turns out that the angionomas are a sign of bromide poisoning. Bromides will take the place of iodine in the thyroid and hinder it's ability to produce hormones. When I first started on Iodoral I had some really bad headaches as the bromides were displaced but after a few days I began to feel better with more cognition and more energy. My TSH is still a little high at 4.3 but I feel it will come down with time and more iodine. Bromides are everywhere in our lives from breads to flame retardant materials and as a halogen they are a poison to our bodies.
