Soy: bad for thyroid, hard to digest, and generally yucky

I have recently come to the conclusion that I have a thyroid issue. I wake up cold in the morning, have a hard time getting out of bed, have lost hair etc. New research says that soy suppresses the thyroid. Fermented soy (tofu and tempeh) is not as bad for the thyroid but soy milk, being unfermented, is. Also, soy is one of the hardest foods to digest.
There have been some posts from As on the board about soy and estrogen. Apparently some women find too much estrogen just reinforces a tendency to be estrogen dominant. I don't know if it's true but it could be.
Besides all that, soy milk is kind of yucky.
I have not checked the label for nut milk. If they are lower in sugar (look under the carbo grams) then maybe it would be better. I was going to buy some rice milk to put in a smoothie, but nut milk would work also.
