Hello I was hoping for some advice on dietary changes I could make to help me with hashimoto's. I have just read Isabelle Wende's book and to tell the truth I found it a bit overwhelming. I was diagnosed with Hahsi's in February my tsh was 12.7 and my TPO was 433 and T4 was 10.36. I was put on 50mg of leveothyrox, which has now been elevated to 62.5mg, my current results show my TSH is 5.4. I have started the 5 2 diet which is helping me to shed the extra few kilos that I have recently put on. But in I have read fasting is not good for hashimoto. Should I not be doing this? I have a question about fluoride. We have no fluoride in our water and our dentist told me to buy salt with fluoride to keep the family's teeth healthy. Wende says that you should not have fluoride and iodine, which is added to the salt I use - should I stop using it? Also I use cold-pressed rapeseed oil for cooking. She mentions rapseed is not good - it that just commercial Rapseed or cold-pressed too? We are a family of four and we eat together as a family. Is there any specific advice for changes I can make to the food we eat. I try and cook heathily - loads of veg and fruit, fish and white meat and low gluten. Thanks for any thoughts or advise.
