    Carbohydrate Restriction as an Adjunct Treatment for Hypothyroidism | A Worldly Monk

    "Hypothyroidism is a distressingly common condition, one from which I suffer myself. My diet includes sufficient amounts of the dietary precursors of thyroid hormones, avoids goitrogens (substances in food that inhibit the production of thyroid hormones) and restricts carbohydrate."

    Good article which has online references of the study. And another good reason to stay away from lots of carbs. I appreciate such a study today because my HMO is now recommending a vegetarian diet.

    Hey nice post. Since this is your blog post please do expand on this part though for the audience . Or just link some of what you have if you like.

    "While adding carbohydrate to a diet increases blood levels of T3, it does not also increase basal metabolism. This suggests that the additional T3 is used exclusively to metabolize higher levels of blood sugar."

    I think there is a rather large grouping of people that believe carbohydrate actually does increase basal metabolism.
