  3. Nutrition and Diet
    Due to thyroid cancer I chose to have a total thyroidectomy in May 2015. Prior to this I had started on the Paleo diet in December 2014 (after Hashimotos diagnosis). I then went on a LID this month in order to prepare for RAI treatment and noticed that some of my autoimmune symptoms (muscle...
  4. Thyroid Disease General Discussion Forum
    I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism in February of this year (2015). I currently weigh 185 pounds and am 5 feet 5 inches. I used to be quite slim and have a small frame so the extra weight feels like a lot to me. Is the diagnosis of hypothyroidism mean that I am always going to be overweight...

  7. Hashimoto's Thyroiditis (Hashi's Disease) Forum
    My 5yo daughter was just diagnosed last week, I keep reading I should remove gluten from her diet? How much of this is true? What is your opinion? How many of you have changed your diet (not for weightless reasons). Also refined sugars are a big one as well. Not sure where to go from here.

    I had a very bad reaction to antihistamines but I am currently undiagnosed as having anything wrong with my thyroid. I am hoping for some guidance as to what I can do. My doctor is very unhelpful. I had to push for the antibody tests. She normally does not run them because she considers...

    I am 35 yrs old. I have always had a hard time with my weight but over the past year and half I went to being in great shape to a blob. I gained almost 50 pounds in the blink of an eye.
