Re: Does anyone know of a diet to controll hyperthyroid
You may need the meds. My bro. was very hyper in early-stage Hashimoto's disease. But he could not tolerate the meds. He also opted to not do the radioactive burn-out . He then needed a beta-blocker to protect his heart, and did use diet to help control the situation, but it was not ideal. Broccoli, cauliflower, tapioca & soy are somewhat anti-thyroid.
But the biggest help to him was avoiding iodine in salt, seafood, etc. ALSO discovered that avoiding dairy products made a big diff. Whether it was a case of iodine in the milk (iodine is used to cleanse the dairy cows' teats before each milking, and therefore gets into the milk supply), or whether he had antibodies to the milk that were flaring his thyroid, we are not sure: just that it made a diff.
