Is elemental Iodine safe for my patients?

Yes. BluTube contains Iodine in its elemental state – which means no other molecules are attached to it and is non-allergenic. Iodine is an element that is naturally present throughout the body and is essential for the production of thyroid hormones. The term “iodine allergy” involves iodine with extra molecules attached, that can respond negatively to the body when ingested.
