As if pregnancy wasn’t enough of a problem when it comes to women, weight gain and their thyroid, here’s yet another: Women have more thyroid problems than men simply because of breast tissue . Did you know that a woman’s breasts require almost as much iodine as the thyroid ?
So for women, iodine has to do double, or during pregnancy, even triple duty.
There’s even a condition named for this breast tissue iodine deficiency: Fibrocystic Breast Disease . Clinically, a woman with fibrocystic breast disease should be assumed to be thyroid deficient. It has also been reported that women with this specific iodine deficiency disease are also more likely to develop breast cancer than those that don’t.
Since men don’t have these problems, women are unfortunately the ones who are typically more prone to being iodine deficient.
My body temp seems to hover around (36), and I feel ill most of the time. But just having a blood test to check thyroid function doesn’t work. I went to a holistic endocrinologist who did a physical, asked the right questions, in addition to the blood test, and found it needed help. My thyroid can produce T3 and T4, but I’m not utilizing it, so I have all the symptoms of it being under active. Natural thyroid supplements, infrared saunas, good diet, mild exercise, and keeping warm, all help. Oh, and avoid raw cruciferous veggies (cabbage family), raw strawberries, and soy products. I’ve read several places that they hinder T3 & T4 utilization too.
