Hashimoto Thyroiditis Diet

Hashimoto Thyroiditis Diet

Hashimoto thyroiditis is a condition best described by looking at the thyroid as a potential threat the body seeks to eliminate. It starts making antibodies to destroy its own tissues. This prevents the thyroid from producing adequate levels of hormones to keep the body functioning properly.

 

Symptoms include fatigue, weight gain and difficulty losing weight, dry skin, digestive issues (constipation), depression, sensitivity to cold, slower heart rate, joint and muscle pain. There is also a greater risk of cardiovascular disease. Thyroid hormones regulate cholesterol levels, hypothyroidism increases LDL cholesterol and more LDL cholesterol lowers the function of the thyroid creating a vicious cycle.

 

The main treatment consists of regulating the thyroid hormone by means of medication and supplements while adding nutrition, stress elimination techniques, and practices that stimulate the thyroid function and overall health.
