Common symptoms include: feeling cold, fatigue, weight gain, brittle nails and hair. A goitrogen is a food type that can disrupt function of the thyroid gland and thyroid hormone. Foods classified as “goitrogenic” can be heated to reduce or eliminate their thyroid interfering properties. Some of them are strawberries, peanuts, kale, soy, cabbage, cruciferous vegetables.
It is estimated that more than 20 million people in the United States have some form of thyroid disease, the most common being hypothyroidism. So if you haven’t heard of the thyroid gland, it’s time to listen up because information about this small powerhouse gland can sometimes be confusing.
The thyroid gland is a butterfly shaped gland found in the front of the neck. Despite its’ size, the thyroid gland works together with the pituitary gland (the control center located in the brain) to produce thyroid hormone and eventually control metabolism, growth, temperature, and energy levels.
Common Symptoms Of Under Active Thyroid
When individuals have an underactive thyroid, or a problem with thyroid hormone production common symptoms include:
- Feeling cold
- Weight gain
- Brittle nails and hair
In many cases, diet can affect our health and certain foods can even affect our medications and medical conditions. Recently, kale and a few other healthy foods have gotten a lot of heat for being “goitrogenic” foods. A goitrogen is a food or substance that can disrupt function of the thyroid gland and thyroid hormone throughout the body. But if there is ONE thing I want you to remember, it is that you do NOT have to quit these foods. Research suggests that consuming these foods in small quantities has very little if any impact on thyroid hormone function, particularly in areas where there is minimal iodine deficiency (the United States). If you are still concerned, foods classified as “goitrogenic” can be heated to reduce or eliminate their thyroid interfering properties.
Notable Goitrogenic Foods
- Cruciferous vegetables (broccoli, cauliflower)
So before you ditch kale for good, or avoid peanuts like the plague, consider heating or steaming these foods, and keeping your intake to about twice a week if you have underlying thyroid disease.

M also facing this problem ,l totally avoided such food items Then also there is no satisfactory result. Pls give me more advice for better result
I can't see the writing. It's too small. Would like to have been able to, as I have an underactive thyroid.
Drugs do that. Then eventually they'll want to remove the thyroid so you're permanently on the drugs. It's a great money maker. They won't tell you that you can eat a cup of mushrooms daily for around a month and get everything back to normal. There's no money in that for them.
I just eat plenty of mushrooms. Highest source of plant iodine along with seaweed. Thyroids need iodine to function properly.
Overdose of medicines hv changed ur TSH profile. Take medications only after proper checkup again n consultation of doc
