DIET CHART FOR HYPOTHYROIDISM

INTRODUCTION

Thyroid is a small, butterfly-shaped gland at the front base of the neck. Hypothyroidism occurs when the gland produces very less or insufficient thyroid hormones. This condition can lead to weight gain and can slow down a person's metabolism. A healthy eating and well-balanced low-fat diet that is rich in fruits, vegetables, lean proteins, grains, pulses, and antioxidants can improve overall health and benefit of the thyroid gland. Nutrient-rich foods high in B vitamins, Omega-3 fatty acids, selenium, and zincalso help and maintain proper thyroid function. But consumption of high fatty foods, high in sugar, soft drinks, caffeine, alcohol, can worsen hypothyroidism.
