Diet

In 2008 I had my TT. I currently take Armour but I don't think I am on a high enough dosage. Can't get doctor to raise dose. About six weeks ago I was diagnosed with lung cancer. Had the lower right lobe of my lung removed. My question is, I am trying to eat healthy and going to start exercising as soon as I get the okay. What foods should I be trying to avoid? Should I stay away from iodine? Do I avoid cruciferous vegetables ie. broccoli, kale and Brussels sprouts?

There is no need to do any special diet unless you are scheduled soon for RAI treatment for thyroid cancer. In that case, you would follow the low iodine diet for two weeks. Otherwise, eat healthy and eat what you want and enjoy.
