MYTH: The Thyroid diet is a special recommended for all patients. FACT: No such special thyroid diet exists. Just ensure that you are not taking your thyroid medicines with calcium, iron or fiber supplements or with coffee, as these inhibit the absorption of the medicine. There should be a minimum gap of 3-4 hours.
MYTH: Hypothyroid patients should avoid all soy products. FACT: Patients can occasionally enjoy soy products as long as the daily iodine intake of 1.1 mg is met. Just a half teaspoon (2.5 grams) of iodized salt per day is enough to meet your daily iodine requirement!
MYTH: Hypothyroid patients should not eat cauliflower, cabbage etc. FACT: Moderate quantity of these foods in cooked form mixed with other vegetables is fine. Cooking diminishes their “anti-thyroid” properties. Therefore it is advisable not to have them in the raw form.
MYTH: hypothyroid patients should avoid gluten. FACT: It is incorrect. Gluten should be avoided in presence of coeliac disease and has nothing to do with thyroid status.
