I have hypothyroidism, I've been eating Keto for about 8 years. I don't see any connection one way or the other.

My synthroid dosage kept going up before Keto, and since then it is stayed the same, and even been reduced downward once in the 8 years. So very steady, and not at all getting worse for me, if anything its better.

Hi. I've been keto for 3 years now. Personally, I've found keto to be the best thing I have ever done for my thyroid: relatively easy sustainable weight loss, high energy levels, good temperature regulation (for the first time in my life), and the cysts in my thyroid have disappeared (as well as my goiter)... all signs of improved thyroid function.

Best wishes!

Dr. Jason Fung: "Holy consensus, Batman. With so many 'experts' from Michelle Obama to the USDA to virtually all of the medical professionals (including doctors and dieticians) agreeing that 'Eat Less, Move More' is the way to go, you might think that it is 100% unquestionably true. But here's a queer thought... if we all agree that we know the cure for obesity, and we've spent billions on educations and programs - why are we getting fatter? In other words, why does this 'cure' suck so bad?

Marie--do you have facebook? I would suggest you look up the "Ketogenic success" page..the one with hundreds of thousands of people..and ask. I've seen postings by many with thyroid conditions that are thriving on keto..but i dont know enough about it..they could probably point you in the right direction.

If your doctor is supportive of keto, I would venture to say they wouldnt let you do it if there was danger.

Hers is limited, fruits vegetables, and lean meats. I like keto because the only thing we don't get or need is processed and white foods (flour, sugar, pasta etc) I don't do grains either, Someday I hope to incorporate some in, like quinoa. oats, and lentils. But limited. In "Eat to live" we are allowed 1 cup of one of those a day. But it's mainly for Vegans. I use a little bit of everybody. And what suits me. It's a pick and choose and gamble, of what your body likes.

Getting and staying healthy is not an option, it's a lifestyle.

Thanks - Is your friend's low carb plan Keto or some other dietary plan? I've been reading plenty of articles, however, I wanted to get an honest perspective from the group...those with hypothyroidism who have maintained the keto lifestyle long-term. I haven't been on Keto long enough to come to any conclusions yet.

I have a friend that has Hashimotos (thyroid condition) and she is doing low carb with the direction of her physician. Look into it here on the web lots of info, in what is good and not good for thyroid conditions.

I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism about 20 years ago. I'd been working the keto diet for several weeks when I came across several articles that said the keto plan is extremely dangerous for those with hypothyroidism. Hmm.

Is there anyone else in this group with hypothyroidism that finds these claims to be false? I certainly don't want to damage my health trying to be healthier, lol.
