Maintaining a healthy diet with thyroid disorders such as hypothyroidism (low thyroid), hyperthyroidism (high thyroid), Grave’s Disease, or Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis (autoimmune) can be challenging when it comes to weight management. Subclinical hypothyroidism (low thyroid hormone, but not low enough for doctors to prescribe medication) is one of the most common problems in individuals struggling to lose weight. Our team can help you manage your thyroid disorder with proper nutrition and natural supplementation.
The thyroid hormone is involved in metabolism (i.e. how efficient your body is at turning the calories you eat into energy within the body). An underactive thyroid (too little thyroid hormone) causes the body to use fewer calories as energy and store more calories unnecessarily as fat. On the other hand, an overactive thyroid (too much thyroid hormone) causes the body to burn calories at an abnormal rate while refusing to store calories as fat where needed. Both are metabolic disorders that must be addressed before any kind of weight change can occur successfully in the body.
