I hope they are getting advice from their doctor. I presume they are taking some sort of hormone replacement.
Iodine and Selenium is for the function of the thyroid to produce the hormone.
Just doing a quick google, Selenium is used in other parts of the body.
Looks like Iodine is just used by the thyroid, doing a quick google search.
So, consult your doctor, get the blood work done, and take supplementation if needed.
A malfunctioning thyroid is a big issue. My friend was basically out of it for 6-months because his thyroid wasn't working properly. He had to take some medication. He couldn't do much of anything most days, and was lucky enough to be able to function at his job. The recommendation of having good minerals in the body to support the thyroid is just to make sure your body is functioning normally.
It’s all explained in this book below. Basically, you want to get it as close to the green safely as possible. Safely means avoiding bunkers, hazards, deep rough, etc. So I would hit it a distance to just short of the green to avoid the bunkers, your number 3, depending on the bunker setup. If there are no bunkers long and the rough isn’t too bad, long may be the option.

I'm wondering what people are doing out there regarding the setup for a 3rd shot. Here's the scenario:
400 yd. hole. Driver is hit 210 and in the fairway. Now what:
1 try to make the green with a 3h, but often when the ball travels 170+ it starts to fade or hook a little, with a potential of winding up in the greenside bunker.
2 try to get to 90y, and use my favorite club in the bag (GW) to make the green in 3.
3 use something in-between like a 7h and wind up maybe 40/30y from the green for an easy chip and run
why the dilemma:
#1 seems a shame to waste an opportunity to get on the green in 2. But, do the bunkers as a percentage hurt worse than resigning myself to 3 onto the green?
#2 yes, the GW is my favorite club, but 90y is still 90y. If I hit that shot 10 times, would it be on the green as often as a LW or pitch and run from 30y. Also, will a 30y pitch and run be closer to the pin than a 90y GW?
#3 a LW or pitch and run from 30y will likely get on the green. But, that means I'm on in 3, rather than being on in 2 if I choose option #1.
percentage wise, I think #3 is a better option than #2, and with a 7h, the bunker is no longer in play. Also, the 7h doesn't need to go straight. It just needs to go somewhat straight for 150y. With the GW at 90y, while it is a more controllable club (in terms of going straight), it better go straight or there's a chance of being in the bunker.
How do some of you think through this scenario?
