Hashimoto's disease is an autoimmune condition in which a person's antibodies attack their thyroid and cause inflammation. It is the number one cause of hypothyroidism in the United States. Hashimoto's can become more severe over time, so taking early action is beneficial and can slow the progression of the disease.

Diet and nutrition are critical aspects of any treatment plan for Hashimoto's and hypothyroidism. Some may argue that vegan (or vegetarian) diets are not the best choice for those who are trying to heal from Hashimoto's, specifically. This carbohydrate-heavy diet can exacerbate blood sugar issues, prevent the healing of intestinal permeability (leaky gut), and contribute to nutrient deficiencies that may trigger Hashimoto's.

With this knowledge, whether or not you adopt a plant-based diet for hypothyroidism, you should aim for 150-400 micrograms (mcg) of iodine per day from a combination of foods, fortified foods, and supplements. People with Hashimoto's generally tolerate supplements containing up to 150 mcg of iodine without increasing thyroid antibodies.Sample Recipe: Lentil & Roasted Vegetable Salad
