Adequate protein intake is a key nutritional factor in preventing loss of muscle mass and strength, frailty, and associated comorbidities in later life. In addition, research shows that a deficiency of dietary protein can impair immune function and increase susceptibility to infectious diseases.

Today, I’m sharing why adequate protein intake should be a critical component of your thyroid healing journey, how to know the right amount of protein to consume, and specific considerations for people with hyperthyroidism or Hashimoto’s.

In this episode, you’ll learn:
- How protein helps with muscle mass, strength, and preventing sarcopenia
- The relevance of protein for those with autoimmune conditions
- Determining your recommended daily protein intake
- Whether you should be concerned about excess protein and your kidney health
- The potential need for increased protein intake with hypothyroidism

As always, I hope you find this episode valuable, and I look forward to catching you in the next episode!
