About the Course

The incidence of the autoimmune condition “Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis”, which accounts for the majority of hypothyroidism cases, is fast growing.  Not only is this condition potentially preventable, but it can be addressed and well managed with dietary and lifestyle shifts.  Dietitians are well positioned to help support patients who may not be aware of how poor dietary patterns and a fast-paced lifestyle may affect autoimmunity and specifically the thyroid. This “food and lifestyle as medicine” themed presentation will provide insights into numerous elements of thyroid and immune function, discuss signs and symptoms and provide guidance on addressing and tackling potential root causes such as dietary insufficiencies and systemic imbalances as well as stressful lifestyle habits.

Course Learning Objectives

1. Describe the basic physiology and biochemistry of thyroid function
2. Identify signs and symptoms of Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis as well as diet/lifestyle factors that may contribute to exacerbation of the condition.
3. Implement easy and effective dietary, lifestyle and supplemental strategies that support both thyroid function and the immune system.
