This study examined the benefits, with regards to health related quality of life (HRQL), symptom burden and thyroid function, of the autoimmune paleo diet (AIP) following its implementation as part of a 10 week online health coaching program in 17 individuals with Hashimoto's Thyroiditis (HT) There was a significant (p< 0.05) improvement in HRQL as measured by all 8 subscales of the SF-36 (n-16). Clinical symptom burden as measured by the MSQ decreased significantly from an average of 92 ± 25 (n=16) prior to the program to 29 ± 20 after the program. There were no statistically significant changes noted in any of the measures of thyroid function including TSH, Free and Total T4, Free and Total T3 or thyroid antibodies. AIP may be a useful dietary strategy in order to address impaired quality of life and symptom burden in middle aged women with HT.
