I eat around 50-75g/day, any lower than that and my hashimoto's symptoms worsen. I have SIBO, so I walk a very fine line with the amount of carbs I can handle.

I have not been tested but my thyroid seems to be low. I experience positive effects when eating 150-400 grams of carbohydrate, usually. About 90% of that is simple sugars.

My gf's potentially (though undiagnosed) prone to low thyroid, and we keep her carbs between 150-200 grams a day. She eats 1 serving of potatoes (yes, white.) 1 serving of rice, 1 banana, 1 tangerine, .25 cup cashews, and ahem 1 organic date roll, and (since we're more lacto-paleo and she's all about lattes) 1 latte and 1 glass of regular milk a day.

So that's about 160, +/- 40 or so. Does well for her, and we make sure to pair her carbs with equal amounts of fats calorie wise for sustained energy.
