Thanks Mzzzchief
I didn't know we could add vitamins to the tracker.
My doc says I have too much iron in my body... do you think that is thyroid related?

Hi, I am new to this site and I would like to go back to the calcium supplement discussion. Recently in the news there were medical reports that said calcium supplements were shown to be inaffective and that they gave a slight risk of heart attack. Can anyone verify this? Also is anyone tracking sodium? I have started tracking it and I am horrified how much is in all the prepared foods, especially those for children!

The info on goitrogens is so interesting. I have recently went gluten free and in doing so increased my corn consumption. I have also started having a smoothie every morning with fruit- strawberries included as well as flax. Now I will have to reevaluate my diet further. I am loving all the info here on Spark!

The ingestion of foods known as goitrogens block iodine utilization or conversion of thyroid hormone or hormone receptors (it varies with the particular food and it's natural chemical content) and such foods should be avoided (or at least limited).

Goitrogens include:
broccoli, brussels sprouts, cabbage, cassava root (found in tapioca), cauliflower, lima beans, maize (corn), millet, mustard, peanuts, pearl millet, pine nuts, rapeseed, sweet potatoes, soy, soybeans, turnips

Unsaturated fats such as flax, soybean, safflower, corn and canola (contains rapeseed) also should be avoided. Cooking usually inactivates the goitrogens but remember, too, the longer you cook vegies the more you reduce their nutritional value.

My skin gets really itchy also, but believe it is partially due to my BP meds; combined with my thyroid issues. I don't feel itchy under the skin, but get skin rashes, called lychen planteons. Not sure if I spelled that right, but they would keep me up at night. Scratching only inflamed, and made skin thicker. I use pure coconut oil, and it helps; plus I take a liquid form of EFOs to help from the inside.
As far as diet is concerned, I am finally going down ..ever so slowly..nearly gultin free, and only desserts made with stevia. I stick to fruit to use for my treats. I love my carbs, but have to stick to brown rice, and sweet potatoes only..with an occasional boiled red potatoe. I try and get a portion of protein at each meal, plus steamed veggies or salads.

Stand up for yourself and for others who are not as strong as you..always take a stand in what you believe to be the truth.

The strawberries I put in a smoothie now. Have not eaten cauliflower for ages and cabbage and broccoli only occasionally on the menu.

Used to eat soy but not now. Still there are so many other wonderful foods to choose from, that I can't really complain.

I do off and on. When I was on a different med my temperature would be 97.6 or so in the morning and 99.5 or so in the afternoon. Talk about being zapped. When I finally got the meds changed it did straighten out although once in a while it does it again for a day or two.

Strawberries is one of the fruit not recommended for hypo's from what I understand. It you are going to eat them do not near the time you take your meds. I am not going to give up strawberries but I eat them in moderation and in the afternoon or evening.
Broccoli and cauliflower should be eaten cooked.
I thought flaxseed was safe Purr or Mizz help!

No one has replied yet, but I hope not! I take flaxseed supplements everyday. Over 1,000. Also eat strawberries. (sometimes) I go next week for my levels, so we'll see. 3 months ago I had to have them increased and I was on flaxseed then. Um.. have to wait and see.

ZhanasG-if you go to your my nutrition page and click on add a food, you can put in all the nutrients including grams of sugar. It may take you a while to build your food groupings but if you save it to your food favorites then it will always be there.

I have a few questions?

Why when I changed my goal weigh, after achieving the goal I had entered, did the daily calorie gaol total go up, from 1000 - 1200 to 1200 - 1550?

Also I am tracking Fructose and Glucose (dextrose)but what I need to track is sugar and that isn't an option. I am finding that these are not working for me. I have found that even some frozen vegetables have sugar in them. Is there something I can track to gauge how much sugar I am consuming.

I thank you in advance for any input.



God Bless

Good point, inde!

The foods that Sparkpeople have inputted are pretty complete. When you are adding them to your days total, if you look you'll see "nutritional information" in teeny red print under the How Much? box. Click on that and you'll see everything that's listed for that food.

The foods that members have shared...sometimes those only list calories! You can tell if its a membershare, because someone's name is listed after it.

Before you add these items to your favorites, its a good idea to see what nutritional information as been added by the member. Sometimes several members will have the identical item listed, but will include more or less nutritional info. I tend to pick the ones that are most complete.

You can also make up your own nutritional profile for a food you regularly eat. Sure it takes time, but once its done, its there... everytime you need it! There's a function for that on your "add a food" nutritional tracker on the first tab, the Add Food Search. Its the first box on the upper right "add food not listed".

I take a multi that has folic acid in it as a precaution, since I don't eat many grains, and grain is what is generally fortified with folic acid.

You can also take a supplement... my thoughts there are to take it under the tongue because an excess of folic acid can mean an increase in polyup growth in the colon.

WELL, MY TRACKER SAYS I AM EVERY DAY. I ATE 2 BOWLS OF CEREAL THE OTHER DAY AND GOT IT UP. BUT I DIDN'T LIKE THE DAY. FOR ME, 2 BOWLS OF CEREAL WAS TOO MUCH.
I THINK PART OF THE REASON IS THAT THE FOODS THAT ARE SUPPOSED TO BE HIGH IN FOLATE DON'T HAVE IT LISTED AS AN INGREDIENT.

hey Goanna!

Glad to be of service!

: )

Your combo sounds like a great idea, taking silica with D3 and calcium!

I heard on the news the other nite, that female Beer drinkers have stronger bones than those who don't drink beer. The speculation that its the high silica content of Beer combined with phytoestrogens from the hops all beers contain, account for this.

Study was prolly funded by Coors. LOL

If you're forgetful like me, take those pills to work with you in your purse, as they don't need to be refridgerated the way something like fish oil does. That said I wouldn't store any supplements, minerals or vitamins in the car, at least not during summer, since temps can skyrocket in a parked car.

You can either leave a supply at your desk, or buy a small "make up bag" and leave them in their jars in the bag. I bought the makeup bag to store them after a jar of calcium pills rolled out of my bag and rang themselves up at one of those self service registers. LOL

I had to do a lot of 'splainin' to the cashier and show her they were already half gone before she would remove them from my purchase total!

So my suggestion is to either leave a supply at work at your desk, or stash 'em in your purse, or both!

I am taking silicaPlus with Vitamin 3 and calcium, and was wondering if you knew about it Mizchief.Only problem is I keep forgetting to take it as I take oroxine in the morning as soon as I wake up.
Then I go to work and forget to take the vitaD/Calcium.
Any suggestions ?

There are two alternative ways of getting vitamin D from a pill.

If you buy the liquid form, you can open a capsule and let it dissolve under your tongue. Alternately, you can open one and rub it into your skin, the inner upper arm where the skin is the thinnest is a good place.

The liquid D is derived from a number of sources. One is from the lanolin in sheep's wool. So if you have a problem with wool allergy, you would not be able to use a liquid D derived from a wool source.

As always, read your labels...know what you are putting in your body BEFORE you say ahhhh!
