there are no restriction with your diet.

you should not go near pregnant women or children for 10 days after the radioactive iodine treatment. you should carefully dispose your secretions such as urine, saliva as they may contain small amount of radiation. the doctor who gave you the radioactive iodine will give the list of precautions you should take
