We still don’t know exactly what causes it, but most researchers agree it’s a mixture of genetic susceptibility and environmental factors such as iodine (excess), infection, pregnancy, diet and intestinal permeability. It does this the same way it attacks foreign invaders like bacteria and viruses: with T-cells, B-cells, natural killer cells, and cytotoxic T cells.
The immune response also involves proteins called cytokines, chemical messengers that pass messages between cells.

Back Problems: – Rounded shoulders: Carrying the burdens of life. – Lower Back Pain: Fear of money or lack of financial support.

And inflammation has a profound effect on all aspects of thyroid metabolism and physiology.Patients who don’t convert T4 to T3 well do better on bio-identical hormones like Armour, because it contains both T4 and T3 (in a 4.22:1 ratio).Inflammation disrupts thyroid metabolism in several other ways, but I think these three examples make the point. Inflammation causes HPT axis disruption, decreased receptor function, and decreased conversion of T4 to T3.It didn’t matter how much my grandma yelled at him – he couldn’t hear a word she said.Third, inflammation decreases the conversion of T4 to T3. The body has to convert it to the active T3 form before it can be used.
