Do You Have Graves’ Disease? Here Is What You Should Do to Win Your Health Back

Do you know that an estimate of 3 – 10 million people is diagnosed with hyperthyroidism or an overactive thyroid? The most common form of hyperthyroidism is the autoimmune condition known as Graves’ disease.

What is Graves’ Disease?

Your thyroid, the butterfly-shaped gland in the front of your neck, produces hormones to help regulate body temperature, heart rate, growth, energy production, and brain health. Hyperthyroidism occurs when the thyroid produces too much thyroid hormone. When thyroid hormones are too high, energy metabolism will speed up, causing the body to burn through nutrients too quickly. This can result in malnutrition and chronic illness. The thyroid can become overactive for many reasons, yet it is commonly a result of the autoimmune condition Graves’ disease. Graves’ disease accounts for roughly 60-80% of all hyperthyroid cases. (1)

While what you eat can matter, it’s more about planning meals and filling your plate with foods that won’t aggravate your Graves’ disease symptoms. In addition to selecting foods wisely, you will most likely need a combination of other personalized support which I will recommend as part of your Graves’ disease suppression plan once you CONTACT me to schedule a FREE 20-minute phone consultation.

Although Graves’ disease can’t be prevented or eradicated completely through diet alone, certain foods may help ease Graves’ disease symptoms. You should also note that every individual has a unique system which means that certain food that would be very effective for an individual might wok well or even worsen your symptoms so I will recommend your CONTACT me to explain your unique case beforehand.

Foods to Eat More of If You Have Graves’ Disease:

Berries

If we are going to be specific, I’ll advise you go for blackberries, blueberries, and raspberries are brimming with antioxidants. Fresh or frozen, these anti-inflammatory foods help to keep your immune system strong. Graves’ disease is an autoimmune disorder, which means that your immune system attacks healthy tissues in your body. Eating berries can’t prevent Graves’ disease, but they can help protect your overall health. Whenever possible choose organic berries to lessen your exposure to pesticides and fertilizers, which will challenge your immune system. I’ll recommend you eat about 1 or more servings a day. (2)

Dairy Products

Do you know that when Graves’ disease is not managed properly, it could lead to bone loss (which can lead to osteoporosis), but once Graves’ disease is supported by getting more dietary calcium, you can rebuild and strengthen your bones? I will recommend you get plenty of calcium from dairy foods, such as cheese, milk, and yogurt. For those that are lactose intolerant, I would recommend you include foods fortified with calcium and vitamin D, such as orange juice, soy or almond milk, whole grain cereals and breads. You should eat about 2-3 servings daily. (3)

Cruciferous Vegetables

With the fact that cruciferous vegetables, such as arugula, broccoli, cauliflower, brussels sprouts, cabbage, radish, and kale, are part of the goitrogen family of foods, I will advice you take these vegetables to help reduce the amount of thyroid hormone your thyroid gland produces. You should also note that you can’t support Graves’ disease solely by eating more of these vegetables that’s why I recommend you CONTACT me for more support. (4)

Foods Containing Vitamin D

With foods such as salmon, eggs, and mushrooms, you can help prevent osteoporosis, a complication that can occur if Graves’ disease goes unmanaged. But that’s really the tip of the iceberg for vitamin D. This is a mighty nutrient that supports functions assuring a healthy immune system as well as brain and nervous system activities. It also has an important role in regulating insulin levels important in diabetes management and contributes to a cardiovascular health. In a case where you might not eat enough to meet your needs, I will try to understand your unique case and recommend some other supplements depending on the level of your Vitamin D status. (5)

Protein

Do you know that chicken, turkey, beans, and nuts are quality sources of protein which is an essential nutrient that helps build muscle and gives you energy? Because weight loss is a common Graves’ disease symptom, eating plenty of protein can help ensure you maintain muscle mass. Getting sufficient protein may help restore muscle mass once Graves’ disease is being managed properly. (6)

Fats

You should also have sufficient omega-3 fatty acids which is an essential fatty acids found in salmon and other fish, olive oil, and walnuts to keep your body healthy and strong. Your body doesn’t naturally produce these fatty acids, so you have to get them from food. I’ll advice you have 1 or more servings daily. (7)

Summary

With the fact that everyone has unique dietary needs, such as high cholesterol, vegetarian, or gluten sensitivity, I will recommend you CONTACT me to schedule a FREE 20-minute phone consultation where would discuss a plan that meets your needs and gives you more of what you like while avoiding the foods that worsen your Graves disease symptoms.
