My doc just told me something I never wanted to hear.. that I need to eat less sushi! Σ（ﾟдﾟlll）
For further explanation, let me explain the different types of sushi first, e.g.
Maki 巻き (sushi rolls)
Temaki 手巻 (cone-shaped formed)
Nigiri 握り(rice with topping)
Chirashizushi ちらし寿司 (rice bowl with various fish, shrimp..)
Inarizushi 稲荷寿司 (rice inside a tofu”bag”)
In general, Maki are wrapped in Nori 海苔 (seaweed) which contains lots of iodine. Iodine is an element used to synthesize thyroid hormones which are primarly responsible for the regulation of the metabolism.
However, thyroid hormones can get out of sync and result into a thyroid disease such as a hyperfunction or an underactive thyroid etc. If a malfunction of the thyroid exists, it is very important to watch the nutrition and avoid too much iodine (or eat more of it).
In my case, I need to avoid iodine (=Nori). So, less Makisushi for me. (T ^ T)
But my doc gave me his consent to continue eating sashimi. Maybe I should rename my blog to allyoucansashimi.wordpress.com. (-_^)
