Best Foods for Hypothyroidism

Find out which are the best and worst foods for hypothyroidism.


| September/October 2001


Recipes:

• Butternut Squash Purée
• Poached Salmon with Pumpkin Seed Parsley Sauce 
• Mixed Greens with Sesame Tahini Dressing
• Wild Rice Pilaf 

Skip the raw peanuts, pass on the coleslaw and hold the broccoli sprouts. After a lifetime of eating all I wanted of these and many otherwise-healthy foods, it came as a shock that they may have set me up to develop the same hypothyroid condition experienced by other members of my family.

Hypothyroidism (low thyroid function) is believed to be one of the most underdiagnosed health conditions in the United States. Many of its symptoms—lethargy, depression and weight gain—can be easily attributed to other factors, making hypothyroidism difficult to diagnose. Some reports estimate that around 15 percent of the population suffers from the condition; other reports estimate more than twice that. Risk increases with age, particularly in menopausal women. Hyperthyroidism (overactive thyroid), the opposite of hypothyroidism, is considerably less common and is characterized by extreme nervousness and restlessness.



A diet for hypothyroidism

Goitrogens are naturally occurring substances in certain foods that interfere with the production of thyroid hormones (the hormones that people with hypothyroidism lack). They include some of the most commonly consumed foods of the health-conscious community: broccoli, cauliflower, kale, spinach, radishes, soybeans, peanuts, pine nuts, peaches and millet. The good news is that many health professionals believe that cooking may inactivate goitrogens.

Although these foods provide many benefits for healthy people, goitrogenic potential should be considered by at-risk groups: people who have a family history of hypothyroidism, those who already have symptoms, and women approaching menopause.
