I've been reading the series of posts on thyroid function over at Perfect Health Diet and I think I'm following pretty well. I also read all of Chris Kresser's posts.
It seems that cortisol (possibly elevated from chronic low carb-ing) could reduce T3 levels. Could it also reduce TSH levels?
Mat Lalonde said this on a Robb Wolf podcast regarding his autoimmune protocol:
"I think you should follow a low-ish carbohydrate diet. Keep in mind that might increase TSH levels, but that doesn???t mean it's pathological."
Why would a low-ish carb (I assume he doesn't mean ketogenic) diet raise TSH?
