In brief: 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.

In brief: First Rx thyroid

It is important to treat the thyroid disorder as it is an easily treatable condition.
Foods will not make up for the medication needed to treat hypothyroidism. After that, a balanced diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits and whole grains, low in saturated fats, non-use of tobacco and alcohol will do any one good.
