Radioactive iodine treatment effect on pump

Has anyone had radioactive iodine treatment (swallowing a pill) to rid thyroid problems? I was told the therapy emits quite a bit of radioation. I was wondering whether that can affect the insulin pump like that of an X-ray machine?

First study of this was in 2018. Interesting question.

I’ve not needed to do that. But I had an iodine Iv. For ct scan. I developed a strong allergic reaction to all iodine including all fish, not just shell fish. I had disconnected my sensor because they told me it wouldn’t work for a few days. I kept it off for three days and it was normal after that.
