Gut health symptoms can look like thyroid hormone symptoms but
they're actually gut-driven symptoms. The challenge is that so many
symptoms are non-specific. You can be fatigued and depressed from a
gut issue or hypothyroidism. - Dr. Michael

Power Quotes From The Show
"I don't think there are certain foods that would just cause
thyroid dysfunction compared to inflaming your gut and just making
you generally unwell. However, there have been some completed
studies that show simply going on a Paleo diet can improve thyroid
function and immunity." - Dr. Michael Ruscio
"The primary cause of hyperthyroidism is autoimmunity. So, if
the primary regulator of your immune system, your small intestine,
and the primary cause of hyperthyroidism is autoimmunity and immune
imbalance, there's your connection. If you eat foods that irritate
your small intestine, that will likely rev up your immune system
and will make the autoimmune symptoms worse or conversely, if
you're eating foods that are healthy for your gut, you can see a
decrease." - Dr. Michael Ruscio
"If you're on a medication and you suspect that you were not
correctly diagnosed; especially if you saw an integrative,
progressive, or alternative provider, most models of misdiagnoses
are from these providers. These providers are not doing it with any
bad intention but you should always check your lab work from before
you went on thyroid hormone medication and if the lab range didn't
flag you high TSH and low T4, then there's a very high probability
that you don't need the medication that you're on. Now, don't do
anything else before the first meeting with a clinician who can
walk you through this and a conventional endocrinologist will
probably do a very good job with helping you discover what support
is best for you." - Dr. Michael Ruscio
