This post continues my series that examines two ratios T4:T3 thyroid hormone secreted by “the” thyroid gland. The single origin of both these ratios is an article by Pilo et al published in 1990. A simple summary: In Pilo's' study, the huge doses of iodine these 14 people were given every day during the … Continue reading Question Pilo’s study: Iodine dosing biases T4:T3 secretion
In this series, I am examining two T4-T3 thyroid hormone ratios that have been circulating in thyroid medical literature for decades. The first ratio is the “molar ratio” of T4 and T3 hormone secretion from the thyroid gland. The second ratio is the theory that the human body derives 20% of its T3 hormone supply from … Continue reading Question Pilo’s 1990 study. It can be misused to limit your T3 supply.
