There is no reason that you can not have just about any vegetable when you are being treated for hypothyrodism. [Within reason].
The cruciferous family does suppress thyroid function, but as long as your diet is consistent and your synthroid dose is optimized this is not a problem.
Simply do not overdue it. And, other green veggies are fine and do not have this effect.
In fact if you denied yourself cruciferous veggies completely, you would be foregoing an important detox veggie important in phase 2 liver detoxification pathways, so do not do this.
Synthroid is generally not affected as to absorption by these foods, as it might be with excess calcium supplements. If you take your medicine first think in the morning, even this is not a problem..
IN fact, T3 and T4 are not how this is monitored, and you need to see what your TSH is.....your symptoms indicated that you are undertreated on your synthroid, and TSH should generally be optimized at between .5 and 1 for most treated patients, not simply left in a high normal range, which can leave you feeling tired.
As long as you do not overdue it on the veggies, they are all OK.
OK. If you have further questions or details, use reply to expert.
Otherwise please choose a positive rating . But, still come back if you need to…think of something later, etc. Bonuses are appreciated.
