For hyper - it may be necessary to include extra calories in your diet to offset the increase in metabolism. In addition, hyperthyroidism affects carbohydrate metabolism and can have a profound effect on glucose control so monitoring blood sugar is important. Protein and fiber help slow the release of sugar into the blood.
Too much or too little iodine can affect the thyroid so this may be something to discuss with your Dr.

Include anti-inflammatory foods such as turmeric, ginger and pineapple in your Blast. Here’s more anti-inflammatory foods: https://www.nutriliving.com/blog/top-10-anti-inflammatory-foods

Eat more cruciferous vegetables like broccoli, cabbage, & kale which contain goitrogens in their raw state. Goitrogens stops thyroid hormone production and help slow down the thyroid.

The University of Maryland has some great research-based dietary recommendations:

1 cup kale
2 broccoli florets
1/2 ripe banana
1/2 cup blueberries

2 Tbsp almond butter
1 Tbsp hemp seeds
1 1/2 cups unsweetened almond milk
