    Ray Peat: It activates the “helplessness” reactions in the body, stress weakening your own life, and I think it can help to get out of that if you think of your life as a continuation of theirs—the same life, though with fewer bodies.

    Protein and saturated fats beneficial, PUFA detrimental for thyroid

    A good new study, which again confirms that saturated fat is anything but detrimental to our health. Most of the studies until now demonstrating improved thyroid function from saturated fat used coconut oil, and that has led to attacks from mainstream medicine that this pro-thyroid and healthy...

    Is TSH supposed to be higher or lower during pregnancy?

    I have heard according to Peat that tsh should be less than 1. Tsh was 2.3 at 13 weeks pregnant and was 1.8 while not pregnant.

    The Thyroid Factory (Possible Series?)

    This is probably too basic for most people on the forum. But I made it after talking to friends and family about their thyroid bloodwork, so maybe it'll be helpful to yours. And I might do some more advanced ones with time.

    Biotin Can Actually Raise T4 And Lower TSH

    A few users ( @aguilaroja ) posted recent case studies showing that biotin in doses as "low" as 10mg daily can interfere with lab test results and produce false positives for a number of conditions.

    Effect Of Vitamin C On The Absorption Of Levothyroxine

    The following study with Vitamin C and Hypothyroid persons taking Levothyroxine is interesting. Coupled with the study posted about Vitamin A in 25,000IU doses daily decreasing TSH, it makes me wonder why a person has to be on thyroid meds. Or, why begin with thyroid meds or increase thyroid...
