Happiness Class: Hashimoto's Thyroiditis Digestion Things to Remember

"Digestion is impaired in Hashimoto's, resulting in depletion of nutrients. 

Diet, medications, and lifestyle contribute to poor digestion.

Check levels of vitamin B12, zinc, ferritin.

Replace with supplementation as indicated.

Consider selenium methionine 200 mcg - 400 mcg daily.

Consider taking Betaine with Pepsin with protein meals.

Goitrogens are substances found in foods that interfere with thyroid function.

Most goitrogens are inactivated by cooking and fermenting, and can be eaten in moderation.

Goitrogens in soy are still present after cooking and soy should be avoided."
