Yeah, isn't it amazing PerryBabe?

Supporting gut function is where my journey with the nutritional folks began. Healthy gut function is SO IMPORTANT! Critical, critical, critical. The more they learn about the gut the more they learn about its intricate involvement in supporting our health and well-being.

Wow! What an eye opener! That probably explains my IBS! I recall my dad having the same problems. I'm a carbon-copy of him in so many ways.

Here's a link to the full article: Ten Things That Interfere with Thyroid Function:

This thread has been established to discuss Gut Problems:

7. Gut Problems

This is another complex source of irritation and dysfunction in the how thyroid hormone works. The beneficial bacteria in the digestive tract activates 20 percent of thyroid hormone. Imbalances in the beneficial gut bacteria cause germ overgrowth of the wrong kind rendering hormone conversion ineffective. In the presence of low thyroid hormone levels and non-beneficial germs in the gut, the risk for increased gut permeability and dysfunctional “tight junctions” occur, i.e. Leaky Gut Syndrome. This creates another type of vicious cycle, i.e. low thyroid hormone leads to Leaky Gut Syndrome and vice versa. The end result becomes poor thyroid function and poor gut function. This causes a domino effect with poor digestion and absorption, poor gallbladder and liver function and subsequent malnourishment and more inflammation and weight gain. What a problematic tangled web!
