Under active thyroid and CD


Full Member
I have a friend who would like to do CD but she has an under active thyroid, i was wondering if that would stop her from doing the diet, she has been on thyroid tabs for a over a yr now and her thyroid he stable. Her doc has said the diet should be safe but just wanted to check with sum CDC.


She is probably on Thyroxine and this is okay to use with CD. However, she does need to get her GP's signature on the MRF as she has a medical condition and is taking prescribed medication.

I have several people with underactive thyroids successfully using CD.
I'm on thyroxine, though my levels are never stable. I had to get a signature from the doctor, but it wasn't a problem:)
Me too! I've been on thyroxine for 4 years now. I had to get my Dr's signature on the CD medical form, but that was easy. It works just as well for us as for anyone else. So tell your friend to go contact a CDC and ask for a medical form. Wish you both every success!
