Hypothyroidism: let's talk about diet and nutrition

By On 20/03/2020 0


The thyroid is an endocrine gland with a   characteristic butterfly shape that is located at the front of the neck and is involved in many bodily functions, especially those that regulate our metabolism.

The thyroid is a syndrome that makes the inadequate thyroid hormone action, especially when the thyroid gland itself does not produce a sufficient amount with a resulting imbalance of the whole organism. Having hypothyroidism can slow down your metabolism, leading to weight gain, fatigue, and other symptoms.

Often, the medical way to treat this syndrome is to use drugs that can rebalance the body by replacing the missing thyroid hormones.

Diet and hypothyroidism

Image search result for "hypothyroidie regime"

Food choices are not able to cure hypothyroidism but play three basic roles that must be known to manage its condition:

  • Foods that contain certain nutrients can help maintain proper thyroid function, eg iodine, selenium, zinc.
  • Other foods instead interfere to the detriment of normal thyroid function, such as those containing soy. By limiting these foods, symptoms can be alleviated.
  • Finally, certain foods and supplements can affect the way the body absorbs thyroid replacement drugs. Limiting these foods can therefore help the body.

Hypothyroidism slows down your metabolism. For this reason, it is often linked to weight gainPeople suffering from this syndrome must therefore pay particular attention to their diet, choosing products that can reduce the effect of the lack of hormonal production.

It is, therefore, useful to know which substances are able to improve the quality of life of people suffering from hypothyroidism and in which foods they are found naturally.


Our body is not able to naturally produce iodine, a substance necessary for the production of hormones. It is therefore important to absorb this substance by choosing foods that can provide it such as:

  • Cheese
  • Milk
  • Ice cream
  • Iodized table salt
  • Saltwater fish
  • Whole eggs

Be aware that even too much iodine intake can contribute to worsening hypothyroidism or to the production of hyperthyroidism. For this reason, it is always advisable to contact a professional who can build with the patient and then modify a correct diet over time.


Selenium is an antioxidant nutrient that plays an important role in the production of thyroid hormones. Thyroid tissue itself naturally contains selenium.

Foods rich in selenium include:

  • Tuna
  • Shrimp
  • Beef
  • Aileron
  • Chicken
  • Ham
  • Eggs
  • Oatmeal
  • Whole wheat bread


Zinc is another nutrient that has significant beneficial effects on thyroid hormones and therefore on our body's metabolism.

Foods rich in zinc include:

  • Oysters
  • Beef
  • Crabs
  • Fortified cereals
  • Pigs
  • Chicken
  • Vegetable
  • Pumpkin seeds
  • Yogurt


Foods to avoid


Some foods contain nutrients that could contribute to dysfunctional thyroid production. While we're not talking about what foods to ban, reduced use has been shown to be effective in reducing symptoms of this syndrome.


Among the foods that contain  goitrogens  or  antithyroid glands,  we can mention:

  • Chou
  • Brussels sprouts
  • Russian cabbage
  • Broccoli
  • Cauliflower

It is however very important to remember how these foods also provide many health benefitsPeople with hypothyroidism can enjoy these foods if eaten in moderation: Scientists believe that these foods only affect the hormones of those who eat them in excessIt should be added that the cooking process seems to deactivate the negative effects on the thyroid of goitrogens.


In recent years, some researchers have found that soy can interfere with the way the thyroid gland produces hormones.

In a clinical study published in 2017, a patient developed severe hypothyroidism after consuming a healthy drink containing large amounts of soy for 6 months. His condition then improved after he stopped drinking and taking thyroid hormone replacement medications.

Foods that contain soy include:

  • Soy milk
  • Soya sauce
  • Soybeans
  • Tofu




A person should avoid processed foods which tend to be calorie-dense while providing little nutritional benefitThis type of food is also known to promote weight gain.

Examples of processed foods:

  • Fast Food
  • Hot-dog
  • Donuts
  • Cakes
  • Biscuits


Hypothyroidism may have links to an underlying autoimmune disease. People with symptoms of this syndrome may therefore be at greater risk than others of developing other autoimmune conditions such as celiac disease. 

Celiac disease causes chronic inflammation and damage to the small intestine due to the ingestion of gluten. Gluten is a protein found in wheat and other grains, including barley, oats, and rye.

Treatment for celiac disease involves following a gluten-free diet. Although a certain link has not yet been made, people with autoimmune hypothyroidism may try to eliminate gluten from their diet to see if their symptoms improve.
