Re: Saxenda injections (Liraglutide).... looking for your experiences

what sort of diet do you have ?



my brother had/has hashimotos and his was exacerbated by a soya milk product that had too much iodine. He was eating mostly plant based with lots of seafood, and also taking a vitamin supplement with iodine.


Basically, when he finally saw the endocrinologist after trying all sorts of 'alternative' options, the endo recommended a very low iodine diet.


On the other hand, idodine deficiency can also cause hypothyroid, so it really needs a careful investigation.


he lost all the excess weight when he switched to a mostly fruit, rice and vegan diet... but I'm not sure long-term if it's the world's healthiest diet either.



I would also do a screen for coeliac disease.
