Soy & Hypothyroidism

Mayo Clinic Logo

Interesting news from those pro-vegan hippies at the Mayo Clinic:

Is it true that people who have hypothyroidism should avoid soy?

Answer from Todd B. Nippoldt, M.D.
Hypothyroidism is generally treated with synthetic thyroid hormone — and soy has long been thought to interfere with the body’s ability to absorb the medication. However, there’s no evidence that people who have hypothyroidism should avoid soy completely.
