16 Foods To Avoid If You Want A Healthy Thyroid Gland
  1. Crash Diets: You don’t need to be an expert in nutrition to know that starving yourself is never a good idea. One of the many problems with crash diets and fasting regimes is that they are extremely bad for your thyroid. When you dramatically lower your calorie intake or deprive your body of sustenance for certain periods of time, you are signalling to your body and your thyroid that you are experiencing famine and it will do everything it can to help you survive.
  2. Beans: Beans have a combination of naturally occurring substances such as goitrogens and lectins which can potentially cause problems for your thyroid. Proper preparation and handling of these foods can limit your exposure to these plant-based chemicals. But keep in mind, not everyone may tolerate them the same even after the correct preparation. These chemicals can potentially cause problems to your gut health as well, so it is best to avoid beans if you have thyroid issues. If absolutely necessary, you can re-introduce them at a later date. But if you notice abdominal pain or bloating afterwards, you should stop immediately.
  3. Artificial sweeteners: Non Caloric sweeteners like Splenda can change how glucose is regulated in your body. It can also change the composition of gut microflora for the worse. This, in turn, can trigger autoimmune disorders because the gut is tightly linked to the immune system.
  4. Walnuts: Walnuts contain biotin, a B-vitamin that converts the fat, carbohydrates and proteins in your body into energy. While biotin doesn’t interfere with thyroid hormone measurements, if foods that contain the vitamin are taken at the same time as thyroid hormone replacement medications, they can interfere with absorption. Eliminate walnuts from your diet if you don’t want it to mess with your medication. And if the nut is one of your favorite snacks, wait a few hours after taking your medication before indulging.
