Oh and by the way Sugar can further damage your thyroid. The blood Sugar surges caused by consuming higher amounts of Sugar can trigger your immune system to attack your thyroid. The adrenals love protein and they throid loves fat especially coconut oil. Coconut oil actually speeds up thyroid function. I have worked my way up to 5 - 6 tablespoons a day now. I don't have sugar craving and have steady energy. It's something you may want to research before trying.
