Brief Answer: avoid goitrogenic food Detailed Answer: Hello XXXXXXX Although you need medication for an underactive thyroid, there are certain foods that also slow down the thyroid gland thereby, causing a underactive thyroid. Some of these foods are cabbage,spinach,broccoli, cauliflower, radish,turnips,mustard,pine nuts,peanuts etc. You may may try to avoid such food items. Juices of the raw vegetables are considered more harmful. So if you do eat it, make sure they are well cooked.
