Thyroid Problems: Thyroid problems can be caused or affected by your nutrition. Low thyroid function can be due to low insufficient iodine, selenium, or zinc. Goitrogens are foods that decrease conversion of thyroid hormones. They include the cruciferous vegetables, like brocolli. Thyroid antibodies are often due to or made worse by exposure to gluten.
