Episode - How much protein should be consumed by those with hyperthyroidism and Hashimoto’s?


How much protein should be consumed by those with hyperthyroidism and Hashimoto’s?

Adequate protein intake is a key nutritional factor in preventing loss of muscle mass and strength, frailty, and associated comorbidities in later life. In addition, research shows that dietary protein deficiency can impair immune function and increase susceptibility to infectious diseases.

Today, I’m sharing why adequate protein intake should be a critical component of your thyroid healing journey, how to know the right amount of protein to consume, and specific considerations for people with hyperthyroidism or Hashimoto’s.


During this episode, you’ll learn about:

  • How protein helps with muscle mass, strength, and preventing sarcopenia
  • The relevance of protein for those with autoimmune conditions
  • Determining your recommended daily protein intake
  • Whether you should be concerned about excess protein and your kidney health
  • The potential need for increased protein intake with hypothyroidism


As always, I hope you found this episode valuable, and I look forward to catching you in the next episode!
