Need Help With Food
Posted 05 June 2010 - 05:28 AM
Hi guys as you can see from my last post i am new here.
Just wondered if any one can give me some advice on what foods are best to eat with graves disease as when it comes to eating the
right things you could say im a bit stupid.
On some places ive looked people say broccoli, peaches and turnips are good altho i hate all off them. Can any one give me some advice
on what else i can eat as some peoeple say it can be controlled or helped by the food you eat. As i have just been diagnosed i would
like to try and get it under control.
does any body also know how to control your weight as ive only been on my pills for a few days but it seems to be dropping off me and
im not the biggest person in the world. Im going to docs on wednesday so if no one can advise on here i shall ask then
Many thanks Sarah xx

I am late with a job so will make this quick but these articles should be a start.

Here is some info from some of the wise oldtimers of this board, from the thyroid 101 section:
