WELCOME

Trykk på “Meny” for norsk

Welcome to my blog on everything thyroid. I want to write about everything I think can help us feel good. Yes, we can feel good even though we are not totally well. But it takes becoming optimal on our thyroid levels and on the medicine that is best for us. Everybody doesn’t have this option. I will do what I can to change this. I will give my take on things like optimal levels, reverse T3, NDT and much more. As well as present studies, and maybe make them easier to understand for those not so familiar with scientific publications. I will also write on other things to do with our health and well being. We are so much more than our thyroid disease. We need to be in good shape on many other parameters, not just our thyroid levels.

The site is bilingual, English and Norwegian. I hope you find something of interest, something that will be of help. 

Odds and ends

This is a fixed post where I comment on things I read or observe. Where I share some thoughts and maybe recommend some things I like.

Getting and giving advice in Facebook groups, 0801 2021.

Being a member of thyroid Fb groups can be a great help. One can learn a great deal, as well as ask for and give advice on one’s health and well being. One can get help, but one can also be misled. There is a lot of bad advice out there. Many don’t feel they have to know a lot on thyroid issues to advice others. So always keep that in mind. But it’s not always easy to give advice either. As people often don’t understand what info to provide in order to get good advice.

I think that when asking in a thyroid group, almost regardless of what one asks about, it is good to provide info on one’s thyroid status. So often things tie into that. The better your info, the better the answers will be. 

These are the things I find very important:

Lab results, as recent as possible

When in the day test is taken

Whether or not you take thyroid meds. If you do, what meds and how much.

CONVERSION, DEODINASE

I have translated some of Thyroid Patients Canada’ articles on conversion into Norwegian. These articles are very interesting, esp this one, https://thyroidpatients.ca/2019/11/12/the-basics-of-thyroid-hormone-action-transport-and-conversion/      

Most of the hormone conversion, T4 to T3 happens outside the thyroid. though there are big individual differences how much.  There are 3 enzymes responsible for this conversion, D1, D2 and D3. They do a lot more than convert T4 to T3 though.
