Cauliflower is a goitrogenic vegetable and can have an effect on thyroid production. I think you should avoid it. Another thing is tsh level above 5 should warrant starting thyroxine.

Hello, Eating cauliflower may affect thyroid gland functioning. Are you taking medications for thyroid? If not then consult a physician and get TSH, T3 and T4 levels checked because if thyroid is left untreated then it may affect your pregnancy and baby.
