Hi, I noticed someone a while back was asking about soy and hypothyroid problems. I was recently diagnosed with hypo and gave up soy (how I miss my spicy Vietnamese tofu over rice). The last time I ate the above, I developed a thyroid nodule on my foot. What I found, tho, was that taking a vitamin high in iodine, and supplementing that with raw seaweed two or three times a day, my nodule disappeared almost immediately and never came back. I think iodine may be the key, as the article below points out, in whether or not you can tolerate soy while dealing with hypothyroid issues. I'm going to try my spicy tofu again and see what happens. BTW, I am also gluten-intolerant and appreciate your mentioning Sunshine Burgers. No gluten, no soy. Of course I'll have to eat them without the bun, but that's ok.

"..Studies indicate that soy only inhibits thyroid function in iodine-deficient individuals"...
