Hypothyroidism is a condition in which the thyroid gland of our body fails to produce enough thyroid hormone which is extremely essential for various metabolic functions in our body. Apart from this, the thyroid hormone is also necessary to maintain normal heartbeat, body temperature and blood pressure. In case of hypothyroidism, these body processes slow down thereby decreasing the basic metabolic rate of the body. The major symptoms of hypothyroidism are weight gain, fatigue, dry skin, constipation, slow heart rate and hair loss.

Medication is definitely crucial in controlling hypothyroidism, but managing your diet well will also help to control the throid hormone.

The major foods to be included in the diet are:
1. Iodized salt
2. Whole grains quinoa, brown rice, oats, buckwheat are best.
3. Sea weed is a good source of iodine and especially for those with heart problems or high Bp who cannot eat much table salt.
4. Selenium rich foods like brazil nuts.
5. Garlic and onion
6. Olive oil
7. Dals and pulses
8. Antioxidant rich Raspberries and blackberries.
9. Other fruits like apple (rich in fiber), Avocado (rich in MUFA), Cherries, grapefruit, kiwi, papaya and prunes.
10. Vegetables like carrot, tomato, avocado, cucumber, capsicum, mushroom, beet, ladies finger, potatoes, pumpkin, zucchini, onions.
11. Alfa Alfa sprouts
12. Include herbs like chillies, garlic, cinnamon, turmeric, parsley. Some of these raise metabolism.

On the other hand the below listed foods are to be avoided:
1. Refined foods like pasta, bread, burgers.
2. Soya and its products are best avoided as high amounts of estrogen can increase the risk of hypothyroidism.
3. Avoid millets especially bajra as much as possible as it is known to be goitrogenic.
4. Ready to eat foods and packaged foods.
5. Gluten rich foods like wheat, semolina rye, bulgur wheat and barley if you have gluten sensitivity.
6. Cruciferous vegetables, such as broccoli and cabbage, Brussel sprouts, cauliflower, kale, turnips, and pak choi can interfere with the production of thyroid hormone, particularly people who have an iodine deficiency goitre. Digesting these vegetables can block the thyroid's ability to absorb iodine, which is essential for normal thyroid function. Best is to cook them well as goitrogenic compounds get destroyed and have in small amounts occasionally.
7. Other vegetables like corn, asparagus, radish, spinach, sweet potato, mustard greens.
8. Almonds, cashew, peanuts, flax seeds, walnuts, and pine nuts as they have thyroid inhibiting compounds.
9. High fat dairy products should be restricted and avoided completely if you are allergic to it. Best is to try and find out for yourself.
10. Canned juices and sodas.
11. Coffee, alcohol, soft drinks, jams, jellies, pastries etc.
12. Fruits like peach, pear and strawberries.
