    Discuss this properly with your doctor/nutritionist. Also depends on the cause of your hyperthyroidism.

    But you can see how much iodine in food you can tolerate. Use non-iodized salt and bread. These are generally the biggest contributors of excess iodine in your diet. Other foods also contain small amounts of iodine that may exacerbate your conditions: soy, kelp, cruciferous vegetables like broccoli, cabbage, kelp, cauliflower, turnips, mustard, radishes, etc.
    Some fish also contain high amounts of iodine. Yogurt and milk and other dairy products contain higher iodine.

    Note that you don't need to cut them out, just see how much your nutritionist/doctor/you think you can tolerate.

    Consume more nuts and proteins-not in the form of soy or eggs
