What diet should someone with hypothyroid follow? Avoid what foods?

Iodine good.: Foods from the sea have iodine good. Ones that bind up iodine bad (these are all the healthy broccoli family foods like broccoli, kale, cabbage). Just have more good than bad and don't do silly amounts of either

Hypothyroid. T3 (liothyronine) 1.8 (1.6-3) T4 16 (9-21) experiencing symptoms such as chronic fatigue, exhaustion, feeling faint, mental illness, etc really need help?

Need more info: It is a little challenging to answer as our thyroid test units here in the States are different from yours. But if we had the TSH (thyroid stimulating hormone), also known as thyrotopin, value we might be of more help, Consider writing back and adding that. You have a combination of conditions that can cause fatigue and exhaustion. I hope you can find some help. All the best to you.

Conflicting labs: Based on the lab values you posted, there's some inconsistencies. In hypothyroidism, the T3 (liothyronine) and T4 are low while the TSH is high. The TSH can decrease if you are on medication and on too high a dose. Please follow up with your doctor to review your test results and diagnosis. Good health.
