The Role of Diet & Nutrition in Managing your Hashimoto’s Symptoms
There is no one-size-fits all diet approach for Hashimoto’s—some patients feel great just going gluten free, others do well without gluten and dairy, and others do better on an autoimmune or Paleo style diet. The best way to find out what diet is best for you is to do a thorough elimination diet to find out if any food allergies or sensitivities are contributing to symptoms. That being said, the best place for anyone who is newly diagnosed to start is with a gluten-free approach. Anyone with autoimmune disease should avoid gluten for life, and this is a necessary first step.
