What Are Some Healthy Foods To Eat If You Have A Hypithyroid
No specifics: There is no specific diet if you are hypothyroid. Most important is to make sure you take your medicine correctly: on empty stomach, at least 30 min before eating or taking any other meds ( including calcium supplements). Synthroid (thyroxine) absorption would be decreased by food consumption or other meds taken together. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What should be the diet for a person suffering from hypothyroid? What foods to eat and what not to? Weight gain is happening...
Diet and hypothyroid: Hypothyroid patients should be on no special diet. Speak to your endocrinologist (e) and make sure you TSH is normal. If it is not, you may need more levothyroxine. If it is, ask your e for an assessment of your problem. You could also be gaining weight due to edema formation, and that could be independent of your thyroid function. Get help from your e. ...Read more

No simple fix. Don't go it alone. ...Read more
Diet's not the key: Being hypothyroid is difficult enough without subscientific / pop diet recommendations. You can basically eat what you please (healthy choices, of course, and limit your calories as you may tend to overeat / get fat.) but you must take your thyroid replacement medicine or your life will be ruined. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Iodine: Iodine feeds the thyroid. However, there is already a lot of iodine in our diets, and it is very hard to eliminate the iodine. If you have graves, don't take any extra iodine, but otherwise a normal diet is fine. Presumably you mean hyperthyroid (overactive). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Hypothyroid and on Euthyrox. Can't lose weight despite healthy eating and intense training 4x a week. Please help?
Thyroid level?: You need to make sure that you are on the correct dose of thyroid hormone by having a TSH level done. If this is normal and you are not losing weight, it is because, somehow, you are taking in the same number of calories as you are burning up. Despite eating "healthy", you still have to make sure you eat fewer calories in order to lose weight. ...Read more
How can I cure hypothyroid? what can I eat to get better without medication? Can I stop taking levothyroxin 100 mcg I'm losing bunches of hair.
Probably not: B"sd depending on cause hypothyroidism is typically permanent, but in cases thyroid function returns. The later is usualy to a form of thyroiditis (inflammation). For most cases the thyroid must be replaced - otherwise weight gain, cognitive impairment etc, etc may ensue. Hair loss occurs when thyroid levels are changing - as in dose adjustment. Once normal, loss stops and new hair comes in. ...Read more

My TSH is normal but I still have all the hypothyroid symptoms. I exercise 35 min or more 5x/wk and eat mostly clean. Not losing weight. What's wrong?
Too many calories: Minimal weight loss despite exercise and eating a healthy diet is most likely due to consuming beyond the calorie limit required for your body to burn fat. You have to eat about 3500 calories less than what you burn over 7 days to lose just 1 pound! Track your calories by weighing and measuring your food and using the label information. Calories from beverages add up quickly too. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I had Stevens-Johnson syndrome 54 years ago. Have had health issues since (Arthritis, hypothyroid). wondering if SJS causes autoimmune issues?
No: To the best of my knowledge. I'm glad you recovered from the SJS. Someday we may find a genetic syndrome in which a particular drug allergy runs with your particular thyroid problem and/or arthritis; I'd bet on an immune modulator if such a gene does exist, but I'd be even more willing to bet that this is just dumb luck. In any case, searching for a connection won't be profitable. Best wishes. ...Read more
I was told that my blood sugar was low yrs ago but wasn't formerly diagnosed.. Now is hypothyroid why do I feel so sick after eating sugary foods?
High glycemic index: Very sugary foods tend to have a high glycemic index. This increases your blood sugar rapidly. Your body then reacts by releasing Insulin and you get a rapid drop in your blood sugar as glucose is moved out of the blood stream. Those fluctuations feel bad. Read about the glycemic index and try to eat foods that have a lower glycemic index and often this will help with hypoglycemia. ...Read more
I eat 1200 cals watch my sugar and carb intake exercise 5 days a wk.I have hypothyroid and take synthoid. I lost some weight but its now slow down.
May need more cals: 1200 calories is quite low and your body already has trouble maintaining normal metabolism due to hypothyroid. Speak with your doc regarding whether your synthroid (thyroxine) dose needs adjusting, but also consider eating more. When you restrict your calories like that your body thinks it is starving and slows down metabolism further to preserve itself. ...Read more
