I am under the impression that oestrogen gets in the way of thyriod hormones getting to cellular level because oestrogen causes more thyroid binding globulin which stops the thyroid hormone getting to the receptors.
In that case shouldn't thyroid function (Ie thyroid hormone get through to the receptors more easily) improve as a women becomes menopausal because eostorgen diminishes? I do know that fat cells make oestrogen, so individuals may vary.
Sooo is there a case for every women having their female hormones tested to make sure oestrogen isn't getting in the way??
And what if levels are high??
Anyone have a doctor looking at this for them??
