I have been trying to lose weight recently and have been advised that the best way for me to do so is to take care of my hypothyroidism by eating mostly organic foods. My concern is that the organic foods are sometimes more expensive than traditional healthy foods and with 2 teenage children, I find myself at the grocers more often to buy food. Are there any suggestions on any/all foods that will support healthy thyroid function without breaking the bank???

In general, there are no hypothyroidism diets. Although claims about hypothyroidism diets exist, there's no evidence that eating or avoiding certain foods will improve thyroid function in people with hypothyroidism.  The best thing you can do nutrition wise, is to use a calorie controlled diet adjusted for your age, sex, height, and a 15-40% slower metabolic  rate.  Your local Hy-Vee dietitian can help determine this for you. A multivitamin or mineral supplement may be recommended by your doctor to replace nutrients that have been poorly absorbed as a result of this condition. Additionally, make sure you are getting an adequate supply of fiber and fluids in your diet. It's also important to note that goitrogens (substances that suppress the function of the thyroid gland) are found naturally in cabbage, turnips, rapeseeds, peanuts, cassava, cauliflower, broccoli, and soybeans and these foods may block the uptake of iodine by body cells. However, you do not need to avoid these foods entirely as heating and cooking inactivates the goitrogenic compounds.

I hope you find this information helpful!
