DIET CHART FOR HYPERTHYRODISM

INTRODUCTION

Hyperthyroidism occurs when the body produces too much thyroid hormone. This condition is also called thyrotoxicosis. Hyperthyroidism may lead to sudden weight loss, sweating, muscle weakness, protruded eyes. A low-iodine, low-fat, and high protein diet will help to regulate the thyroid hormones. But it is also important that you should maintain the proportion of iodine intake as excess iodine-rich diet may also lead to hyperthyroidism and can even worsen the condition in some cases.
