Currently waiting on my medicheck thyroid bloods back, as suspect hypothyroid for many reasons.
One interesting observation I made lately that after certain meals I was getting SUPER fatigued and brain fogged, I would eat and then within 5-10 minutes I'd be totally exhausted. I played around with different foods to see if there was something that seemed to be causing it, carbs, no carbs, meat, no meat etc...
Turned out to be brocolli and kale.. After doing some research, I found that these foods are goitrogens and if you have impaired thyroid function, they can cause worsening of this.
Has anyone experienced this? As soon as I removed them from meals, the fatigue and brain after eating stopped - it was like night and day. I did wonder if it was placebo effect, but the difference was so profoundly different it seems incomprehensible.
Can goitrogens really cause that much of an effect, and that quickly? (5-10 minutes after consumption.)
