BEN BIKMAN b | Low carb eating DOES NOT DAMAGE THYROID…it improves it!
presents episode 901 | Dr Ben Bikman podcast

If thyroid hormone [T3] too low, TSH
will go up
-if T3 too high, thyroid releasing tumor,
then TSH would go down
“Pop culture myth: thyroid is down, the
gland is damaged when eating low carb”
-total of all studies on low carb, over 100
years of studies

Dietary studies report negative outcomes…
-‘we noted these cases of hypoglycemia…’
-Never once mentioned hypothyroidism
However, a few studies have shown a
reduction in T3, lower than before
“If the body were hypothyroid,
TSH would be high”
-brain would signal a lack of thyroid

On low carb eating:
TSH stays normal
T3 drops
Analogy: person, obese, high insulin
-if go low carb, would we say
their pancreas is damaged
because insulin level dropped’?
-because person is more insulin sensitive
