Question: I was diagnosed as thyroid nodules, must I only take non iodized salt?

If thyroid nodule patients must avoid eating seafood, iodized salt, depends on the specific cause of your thyroid nodules, but not according to the experience of others.

To put it simply, the thyroid nodules can be divided into the following situations:

  1. Graves hyperthyroidism and thyroid nodules. These patients need to strictly avoid iodine, abstinence kelp, seaweed, fish and other seafood, and should take non iodized salt.
  2. High function adenoma which can secrete thyroid hormone, these patients also need to strictly avoid iodine and seafood, recommended to eat non iodized salt/
  3. Hashimoto’s thyroiditis with nodules, these patients need to control the intake of iodine.

So, if you need to avoid iodized salt and seafood depends on the specific cause of your thyroid nodules, you need to follow your doctor’s advice.
