Dietary management of thyroid autoimmunity in women planning for pregnancy
micronutrients for thyroid autoimmunity
Women with thyroid autoimmunity (for example Hashimoto thyroiditis) should be aware of their special requirements. Thyroid autoimmunity results in chronic inflammation associated with elevated oxidative stress and hormonal dysbalances.
As a consequence, women affected often suffer from disorders of oocyte maturation associated with irregular menstrual bleeding. Patients with thyroid autoimmunity planning for pregnancy should choose a specific micronutrient preparation tailored to meet their specific nutritional requirements.
