This is my second post today, so apologies but I am trying to sort this thing out.
I am symptomatically hypothyroid, normal labs (before meds) and am on T3.
For me all of this started after a stressful period. I am wondering if anyone has heard of KPU or pyroluria? If not here is a link: naturalinsight.hubpages.com...
Anyhow, there seems to be a link between the two and I am being investigated for the condition.
In short, KPU causes low zinc and high copper and low B6.
Does anyone here know if these nutrients could affect thyroid hormones? Again, labs are normal so T4 and T3 are being produced, but I am wondering specifically how zinc, copper, and B6 could perhaps cause thyroid hormone resistance or inability of thyroid hormone to work at the level of the receptor/mitochondria.
Interestingly, it seems that a lot of nutrients used to treat KPU are also those used to treat hypothyroid.
