Tips for Hypothyroidism
Tips for

Iodine is a mineral associated with the production of thyroid hormones. But too much iodine may worsen your hypothyroidism. In some cases, just a single exposure to an iodine-rich food can lead to excess and, subsequently, jeopardize your thyroid health. The daily recommended intake of iodine is 150 micrograms.

While moderation is key, iodine deficiency has been associated with worsening hypothyroidism. Iodine-rich foods include kelp, bread, milk, fish, shellfish, and iodized salt. Multivitamins may also contain higher levels of iodine. 

It’s important to check with your physician to assess what your daily iodine intake should be and if other sources of iodine may be a potential threat to your thyroid health.
