In this video, Dr. Berg talks about intermittent fasting, low carbohydrate and your thyroid. The pituitary gland sends a message down to the thyroid in the base of the neck about 2 and a half inches wide. The gland that triggers the main thyroid hormone is being controlled by the pituitary by TSH or Thyroid Stimulating Hormone. The thyroid then releases the hormone called T4 (an inactive thyroid hormone), 4 which represents the number of iodine molecules. He also talks about what influences these hormones.

What Affects T3 and T4 hormones:
• Low Carbohydrate Diet and Fasting – Could cause low normal T3. Simply because T3 is constantly getting feedback to the environment.
• Stress and Infection – Could cause an alteration on the thyroid stimulating hormone, low T3 and T4.
