Many people with autoimmune conditions such as Graves’ Disease and Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis follow an autoimmune paleo (AIP) diet. I’ve spoken about this diet numerous times in other blog posts and articles. An AIP diet is similar to a “standard” paleo diet, but also excludes eggs, nightshades, and nuts/seeds. I commonly recommend this diet to my patients, and while some people do great when following it, others don’t do as well.
In the past I wrote a blog post entitled “Should Everyone With Graves’ Disease and Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis Follow an Autoimmune Paleo Diet? “. Although I commonly recommend an autoimmune paleo diet to my patients, in this blog post I spoke about some of the common “flaws” of this diet. The truth is that there is no diet that perfectly fits everyone, and this applies to the autoimmune paleo diet.
Anyway, for those who have already followed an autoimmune paleo diet, or are currently following an autoimmune paleo diet, I’d like for you to share your experience in the comments below. If you followed an autoimmune paleo diet and noticed an improvement in your symptoms and test results please let me know! Or if you followed an AIP diet and felt worse please let me know! Please feel free to be as specific as possible, as I’d love to hear how you felt from a symptomatic standpoint when following an AIP diet, if there were any positive or negative changes in your test results, etc. Thank you in advance for participating!
