As per the BTF website, based on the NHS Eatwell guide, a healthy diet includes:

  • Eating at least five portions of a variety of fruit and vegetables every day
  • Basing meals on higher fibre starchy foods like potatoes, bread, rice or pasta
  • Having some dairy or dairy alternatives
  • Eating some beans, pulses, fish, eggs, meat and other protein
  • Choosing unsaturated oils and spreads, and eat them in small amounts
  • Drinking plenty of fluids (at least six to eight glasses a day)

A doctor or pharmacist may recommend specific supplements or vitamins for people with hyperthyroidism.

People with Graves’ disease or other types of autoimmune thyroid disorder may be sensitive to side effects from iodine.

So a doctor may recommend keeping to a diet that avoids large amounts of iodine.
