Default Good foods to eat when you have hypothyroid

I just learned I am hypothyroid and have been researching on the net for what foods are good for you for it.

I have read some vegetables are not good for you with hypo?

Is there anyone with hypo that is on a certain diet to control it?

Or just eat right and dont worry about it?

hey just had a look on google and it seems that basically a healthy diet is the key, the most important nutrient you need is selenium because this is what converts the thyroid hormone.
here's what i saw for specific foods - 'A healthy diet for someone with hypothyroidism would include whole grains, natural foods, plenty of fruits and vegetables and a good supply of seafood and other lean protein. You should cut back on fatty meats. A multivitamin is probably a good idea if you don't already take one'

hope this helps

I'm hypo, and while a healthy diet can help support healing, for me I really need my meds at the right dose. It is like night and day when it is wrong!

I've been taking synthroid for almost 30 years....it's really important to take any thryoid medicine with a full glass of water. My pharmacist said to not drink or eat anything else for one hour...even coffee. She also said to avoid alot of calcium and fiber for a few hours.

I've been taking synthyroid for about 8 years. I take my pill first thing in the morning with a glass of water. Then I don't eat for 20 minutes after that.

Soy products should be limited, and should not be consumed within 4 hours of taking your pill because they inhibit absorption. It is also recommended that cruciferous vegetables (broccoli, cauliflower, brussels sprouts) be limited as they have a suppressive effect on thyroid hormone levels. I eat both, but try not to eat too much of them too often.

3eans - you are so right about the soy and waiting to eat!! since I don't often eat soy I forgot to mention it.

I also read that raw peanuts can effect the thryoid!

I agree about the crusiferous veggies...I eat them too in moderation. It's never really affected my thyroid.
