Managing Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis through Personalized Care with Keren Dolan DCN

Managing Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis through Personalized Care is the topic of discussion when Ellen Kamhi, PHD RN, interviews Keren Dolan, DCN, MS, CNS, LDN, FACN .

Dr. Dolan is a board certified nutrition specialist, a licensed dietitian nutritionist, a Fellow of the American College of Nutrition, a clinical herbalist and a holistic aromatherapist. She completed her undergraduate degree in Psychology from the University of Virginia and went on to earn a Master’s of Science in Therapeutic Herbalism and her doctorate in Clinical Nutrition through Maryland University of Integrative Health .

An author of several peer-reviewed articles, Dr. Dolan recently published a case report in Alternative Therapies in Health and Medicine entitled “Managing Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis through Personalized Care,” which highlights a case from her integrative functional nutrition practice.

Hashimoto’s thyroiditis (HT) affects more than 14 million individuals in the United States, most of them women. Thyroid replacement therapy has long been the foundation of medical treatment for HT; however, recent research supports a role for nutritional approaches. This case report describes the management of a 34-y-old female with HT who declined thyroid replacement therapy and was successfully managed for a period of 5 mo. The patient was advised to follow a phytonutrient rich diet (eg, berries); avoid sensitive foods (gluten and soy); and consume quality fats, fermented foods, and filtered water. Nutritional supplementation of vitamins (B complex, D3), a-lipoic acid, coenzyme Q10, magnesium, omega-3 oil (DHA/EPA), and probiotics were used in conjunction with an herbal tincture.
