Thyroid Problems/Saturated Fat

Question
Dr
Do you know if a diet high in fats will affect the thyroid? I am on a low fat diet to lose weight and improve heart health, but lately I feel my metabolism has improved since I cut out most meats and dairy. Before, on a low carb diet, I had no appetite, felt terrible, and couldnt lose weight. Now, on a diet of mostly grains and vegetables, I feel great, am hungry, but losing weight!

Answer
Susan,
High fat diet doesnt have any effect on thyroid. High carbohydrate diet will lead to weight gain always. Follow balanced diet. Atleast little amount of fat needs to be added in diet. Otherwise fat soluble vitamins like A,D,E,K wont get absorbed. So dont crash diet.

Thanking you!
