What should thyroid patients eat and not eat?

 What should thyroid patients eat and not eat?

 Different hormones are necessary for the body to function properly. Thyroid is also a type of hormone in the body. It increases the metabolism in the body and controls the cells.

Thyroid is not a disease, it is a gland in the neck. It makes T3 and T4 hormones. It helps the body to deliver the required elements to various organs and cells and the body gains strength. Metabolism is something that is needed by all body parts including lungs, bones, skin, heart.

If there is a problem in the thyroid gland, it is considered to be a thyroid problem. Too much hormone is called hyperthyroidism and too little hormone is called hypothyroidism. It is mandatory for thyroid patients to take medicine to control it. Also, nutritionist Pratima Sen KC says that healthy diet and lifestyle are equally important for thyroid control.

"Many people with thyroid problems are very confused about what kind of diet to follow, whether to eat vegetables such as cabbage, cabbage or not," she says, "Thyroid patients are especially confused about food. There is a misconception that thyroid patients should not eat this, they should not eat that.

Myths and truths about diet

People with thyroid problems should not eat 'cruciferous' vegetables such as cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli and chanterelles. The 'gaitrogen' substance in these vegetables disturbs the thyroid hormone. But after cooking such vegetables, the effect of 'hydrogen substance' is reduced.

"Therefore, it is not necessary to touch cauliflower, it can be eaten in limited quantities after cooking," Dr. Casey says, 'It is very prevalent in the society that if you don't eat gluten-free foods such as flour, wheat, barley, etc., the thyroid will be controlled naturally. But this is only a controversial matter, there is no conclusion. Thyroid problems cannot be controlled by just stopping eating such gluten-containing foods. She says that thyroid can be controlled only by consuming medicines and a balanced diet.

People with thyroid problems are asking doctors and nutritionists what to eat and what not to eat. Thyroid patients do not need to follow a special diet plan. It is not true that the same type of diet plan works for all people. A healthy and balanced diet increases immunity and is suitable for all health problems,' said Dr. Casey says.

Many people also think that soybeans and almonds should not be eaten. No study has confirmed that foods made from soybeans should not be eaten even if there is something wrong with the thyroid. But if you make tofu by roasting soybeans in a natural way rather than processed, it will not affect much,' said Dr. Casey says.

What to eat?

Iodine is needed to keep thyroid hormones healthy. It is replenished by the salt that is eaten daily. In addition, Dr. Selenum is also important for thyroid hormones. Casey says. Selenum can be obtained from mushrooms, onions, garlic, eggs, walnuts, sunflower seeds, etc.

To control the thyroid, you can eat foods containing various types of vitamin minerals including 'zinc', 'vitamin D', 'vitamin B12', grains, pulses, milk products, fish, eggs, mushrooms, walnuts, almonds, nuts, fruits, green tea etc. .

"These foods help to regulate the amount of metabolism in the body," said Dr. Casey says, 'It also helps to control the thyroid directly and indirectly.'
