Atkins diet and hypothyroidism
I heard that going on the Atkins diet when you have hypothyroidism can make things worse.  Has anyone else out there heard this, and any dietary advice on losing weight for someone with hypothyroidism (on meds) would be greatly appreciated.

Low carb is fine with hypothyroidism.  I've read that you should limit your intake of kelp, seaweed, and soy products.

Also, you may want to add some B12 and Selenium to your diet since most hypos have low levels of both.
