    I don’t have thyroid. I take medication, dose the cruciferous vegetables affect the thyroid the same way.

    Thank you

    My thyroid started becoming dysfunctional I believe due to my current immunotherapy treatments but I may be wrong. I am now on thyroid treatment and I have been on a low dosage of levothyroxine 75 mcg for approximately 3 months. It alarms me about the flax seeds because I have been taking it raw in my smoothies religiously. I hope this did not affect me too much. I quess I have to now get the flax seeds toasted.
