Can a dietitian help with thyroid problems?


Yes, a qualified registered dietitian can help with thyroid problems by assessing the current diet and implementing appropriate dietary interventions.


How can a thyroid dietitian and nutritionist help?


Because the thyroid gland has a profound impact on metabolism, nutrition plays an important, though not exclusive, role in the management of hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism. For this reason, a dietitian and nutritionist can provide thyroid support through nutritional interventions. These include:


  • Help manage a variety of symptoms of an under-active thyroid or hypothyroid, such as: weight gain or difficulty losing weight, constipation, fatigue, weakness, coarse dry hair, hair loss, cold intolerance, irritability, et al.


  • Co-create a personalized hypothyroidism diet plan.


  • Provide support for an over-active thyroid or hyperthyroid and associated symptoms, such as unintentional weight loss, insomnia, anxiety, fatigue or muscle weakness, hand tremors, mood swings, rapid heartbeat, heart palpitations or irregular heartbeat, trouble sleeping, etc.


  • Co-create a personalized hyperthyroidism diet plan.


  • Lay out guidelines for a thyroid management program that incorporates various diet and lifestyle changes.


  • Provide individually tailored educational strategies for lifestyle management (dietary management and physical activity).


  • Assess if there are any other health concerns that need to be taken into consideration.


  • Ensure no dietary deficiencies are occurring.



  • Help address other co-existing conditions through nutritional strategies: in particular, dietary support for cardiovascular disease and the management of diabetes by a dietitian.


  • Provide ongoing nutritional guidance and support, tweaking aspects of the thyroid management program and diet plan, as necessary.


  • Provide follow-up sessions to monitor the situation and assist with lifestyle management.



  • And more.
