I was somewhat concerned to read this in Wikipédia :
'Long-term suppression of TSH values below normal values will frequently cause cardiac side-effects and contribute to decreases in bone mineral density (low TSH levels are also well known to contribute to osteoporosis).'
No Wonder people are worried! Is it not possible for someone - Rod or Diogenes or someone - to comment on this, or correct it?
And can anybody explain this?
'On the other hand lithium can cause hyperthyroidism (but most often hypothyroidism) by affecting iodine metabolism of the thyroid itself and thus inhibits synthetic levothyroxine as well.'
If lithium affects iodine in the gland, how does it also manage to affect levo which isn't in the gland?
